    The way I did it, is I set my lighting etc in the omen app then closed it. Now I do all my OC via XTU. XTU makes it really easy to save/apply a profile if the omen app resets it.

    No stability issues for me and it can reach all the settings in one place, which is nice.

    My daily driver OC is 41 all cores at -.120. It can easily go higher, but at those settings I rarely see 90c playing ARK (very CPU intensive game) or Witcher. Wonder what my tempts will be after I repaste with Grizzly.

    Cool!
    And what did you do in order for xtu to apply the settings every startup?

    It typically won't unless it's set to start with Windows. That's the tradeoff to not using multiple software to achieve a single goal and running HP bloatware.

    It's still an imperfect solution either way. They need to start providing a real bios in these things.

    Why exactly are you guys using XTU instead of TS to take care of this stuff?

    Due more and more crippled firmware/software/oc tools from the OEM's. And more will come.

    I really need a new gaming laptop as my 860m just doesn't cut it anymore. The ones that are now available has been on the market since 2016, so I'm wondering should I go for a 1060/1070 or is the new generation GPU of Nvidia coming out anytime soon?

    If you can wait until the third quarter of the year, there will probably be something to look out for by then. If not, GTX 1060 and 1070 are very solid GPUs for what's in the market

    Agreed. There's not much a 1070 can't do in 1080p right now, there's no point in worrying about the next gen if you need something now.

    1070 can play all recent games on high settings on 1080?
