    So this machine uses the same display as the Tongfang right? PWM under 100% brightness?

    I've got a question about what yall are using for your custom fan profiles? I have tried using the fan speed setting app that came stock with the laptop, though it seems to not work all the time. Often times it will just be stuck at 25% fan speed until I default the settings and put them back where I want them... I don't want to have to do that every time, is there a good software you guys would recommend that could handle this a bit better? I tried speedfan, though it doesn't detect the fans, at least not how it does on my desktop.
    Thanks!

    When I had the P970, the standaard program was very good. Besides the panel that was bent, the laptop was very good :).
    Other programs are often not good for laptops.

    What is the thickness of the thermal pads for this laptop?

    The heatsink is copper compatible with liquid metal?

    What thermal paste to use if not? Currently I have Kryonaut with undervolt and still getting to 100C. Around 83 max on GPU.

    I am trying to get as much feedback as possible from everyone possible, will keep it in mind for further posts.

    I really want to solve my problems on Battlefield V as it is the one I most play.

    I had issues with it too for quite some time. I can say I've confidently sorted those issues out 90%. BF5 is very playable on the 2070 max-q the 8GB vRAM is able to play pretty much all the triple A titles on on Ultra 1080p. Initially I had the issue with RTX features not listed in BF5 settings (Required an update to Windows 1903 or it may have been the previous big update 18**)). And most frustratingly it would work fine then start freezing then crashing with no error message. Their are tons of posts on this particular issue.After multiple hours of reinstalling these huge game install sizes, searching long threads on forums to no avail. I've gotten it working and boy is it beautiful, BF1 runs like sex on the P970RF 100+ FPS Ultra settings, I even frame scale 1.30x and still maintain 80+ FPS
    Give me a quick explanation of the issues you are experiencing with BF5

    The issue was overheating.

    I think the CPU heatsink with only 3 screws is a very big ****.

    My partial solution is:

    Repasted, instead of Kryonaut I used Arctic MX4
    Undervolt -100mV CPU and AC/DC set to 1 on unlocked BIOS.
    CPU and GPU fan 100%

    I still see package temperature of 100 degrees gaming but not on the cores.

    I use throttlestop with -0.50mV undervolt in cache iGPU and system agent.

    Temperatures are now on 80-90 but I see more than 10 degrees difference in the cores.

    Max GPU temperature is 73 now.

    My FPS have decreased but also the temperatures.

    I’m playing 2k 144hz with all settings on low at around 100fps.

    Without the undervolt I play at around 130fps.

    Future frame rendering is on.

    DX11, with DX12 I have microstutterings

    Windows 1903 with all updates.

    I have tweaked my RAM to CL15-16-16-32-420

    How can I achieve decent consistency in temperatures in my cores with this **** design cooler ?

    Thank you.
