    I love what you do when given a reason to! :)

    So sad that no one is really benching Notebooks these days and we don't have anyone to play with outside our own team.
    The bot is totally dead. They even created a sub-section for Max-Q with not a single upload.
    I wonder if they would allow us to bench against Desktop cards. That way we would at least get some points.
    Yeah, no chance to beat that with 1080s.

    Somewhere around 35.5K should be their max region...

    I was hoping that computex would bring something competent to the DTR market. I do want back into DTR for OC'ing but there's nothing to lure me back in. I thought the newly announced MSI GT76 with its heatpipes aplenty would be a candidate but alas, BGA.

    Yeah, I was pretty excited by what I saw till they took what could have been a near perfect system and just pigeon dropped us with mouths wide open....

    Not sure if Svet could remove MSI’s cancer firmware and battery boost. @Falkentyne :rolleyes:

    All Svet does is unlocks all of the BIOS' options. The cancerous firmware/EC remains, unfortunately. Akin to having a 800hp car with a governor that won't let you go above 80mph but getting it chipped to allow you to see all of the cool options you can't truly take advantage of. I admit the GT76 has one of the most interesting cooling setups I've seen in a laptop in a long time.

    Whether he can or not is unknown, but he will not.
    That is correct. He either cannot or will not (I am not sure which) mod away the cripple cancer feces like Brother @Prema does. He may have some kind of agreement with MSI where he doesn't mess with their cancer so their turdbooks can (mal)function as MSI intends for them to.

    It's also worth noting that @Prema worked tirelessly trying to eliminate all of the MSI cancer on the 16L13. While there was dramatic improvement over the mess that MSI produced, it never functioned as well as a Clevo in terms of throttle-free overclocking. There was always a bit of gimping that lingered. Might have been a hardware engineering defect.

    Yes, that's an impressive looking cooling system. It's unfortunate that it is being wasted on BGA trash.
