    You have different profiles. Take it out of the demo profiles and find the one w solid color. You can then drag a box around the keys u want to change and select their color from the palate wheel. U can also modify the color by inputting numbers into the r g b boxes on the lower left.

    Any chance of a picture of the heat sink when you repaste? I'd like to compare.

    Unfortunatly i dont' have the option to drag a box around the keys. Also i haven't mode except the solid one (no demo no other modes.) I think i have to reinstall the ccc.

    For the pic of the heatsink, no problem, next week i come back home (where i have the kryo) and i'll post the photos

    Luca I think that the PCX0DX chassis series have single zone RGB keyboards, so only one (customizable) color is available.

    Yeah pretty sure it's just one color for the whole keyboard unless you got something special:

    • Single Zone Multi-Color illuminated keyboard

    thank for the link,

    as I was suggesting the "default" factory configuration is single zone, and as a option multizone one, only with multizone/per key one you can customize the illumination pattern..
    ref. Page specification D.2 3rd column first box:
    "Built-in Gamma Secure Pad OR Touchpad with Microsoft PTP MultiGesture and Scrolling Functionality (Factory Option)
    DEFAULT=> Full Size & Multi-Color Illuminated LED Keyboard with Numeric Pad
    OR
    Full Size & Full Color Illuminated LED “Per Key” Keyboard with Numeric Pad (Factory Option)"
    and if you look every photo of the PCXX serie the have a single zone (uniform color) KB

    My device comes today (with the 2080 super max-q) can't wait to get my hands on it. Will post impressions after I get it set up and configured.

    Looking to improve battery life and found up to 77% in C3 state. Check your throttlestop if you guys have the same issue, it could be driver related.

    A new benchmark

    Witcher 3 ultra quality, hairworks on
    Max fans

    GPU (non-overclocked) temps never reached 70°C, reaches 95w power
    CPU (all core set to max 3.5 Ghz) temps never reached 68°C, CPU package power reaches only 35w

    FPS: around 70, between 61 lowest and 88 highest. Disabling hairworks increases FPS with 10 to 20

    Conclusion: There is more than sufficient thermal and power headroom to increase CPU clocks, I'll raise the multiplier in a next benchmark. There is also enough thermal headroom room to overclock the RTX 2060.


    Two more observations

    1. The laptop gets hot after a few hours of use. I don't mean CPU and GPU temps, they are nicely under control, but the chassis itself.

    2. The 'blocks' left and right next to the hinges are fragile. I bumped the laptop against a wall, not *terribly* hard, and one of the blocks became crooked and I had to 'de-crook' it. This might become an issue if you carry it every day to your work. Make sure you have a sturdy laptop bag.

    For the rest, really enjoying this piece of hardware!
