    I'm getting a lot of battery life issues. My CPU idles at 13 watts, which is super high, and my GPU constantly switches on and off, which I think reduces battery life as well. Is there any known fixes to these issues?

    I have to agree. These speakers are not the greatest, but there's also some sort of audio enhancement in the driver that I can't seem to disable that makes the sound even more pitchy. Does anyone know how to disable it?

    edit: I downloaded the audio driver from the gigabyte website, unzipped it, and deleted all dolby related things in the driver folder before installing. That seems to have done the trick.

    edit2: Windows update reinstalled the Dolby extension. D:

    I don't expect this kind of laptop to sound good, tho I missed the speaker on my LX502, that is a beast for its time.

    I just expected it to sound better than a mono phone speaker lol. Even the XPS 15 9570 with all of its crackling and popping sounded better

    It is the chamber on the speaker, without room for the speaker to move it will sound very2 tiny. I think the most bearable of the 3 is the GM/GX from Asus.

    I just expected it to be better than the little one on the bottom right of this picture lol. I'm not sure if the software is the reason or what

    Has anyone had any issues with their Aero 15x cpu thermal throttling after adding dual channel ram?
    When I had the 1 stick of ram that came with the laptop I had no issues and getting 30-40c idle and around 70-75c gaming. After installing a HX426S15IB2K2/32 kit I'm now getting idle temps of around 50c and almost immediately hitting 90c when running an old game like TF2 on the lowest settings. I have only tried underthrottling with Intel XTU with a -.150 undervolt which does nothing.
