    Hi

    I got gtx670 for my Sager 8170. I wonder what modification for the driver is needed to make it work.

    This little beast has served me well this years but now I'm setting things up to sell it as second hand.

    I ran into a big problem: Windows 10 x64 + AMD latest drivers = can't control the brightness anymore (controls only work with the old 6970m drivers from Sager website)

    Any work around for this? Games no longer starts with the old drivers (At least I think it's because of that)
    Running with 6970m

    Is throttling common on P170HM ?
    I have this for about 5 years and never had problems while gaming. Bbut recently I did some tests and got CPU clock going up and down on Fire Strike benchmark.
    I did some more tests while gaming (Guild Wars 2, Riders of Icarus, CSGO), but CPU didn't throttle. Clock was 2993Mhz during the entire gaming.
    Is is a problem?

    During the GPU parts of the benchmark the CPU is not loaded heavily (it's a GPU test after all) so in balanced performance mode the CPU clocks down to save power as it's not stressed.

    Set to high performance in windows and the clocks will max out.

    High performance in windows? Do you mean set 3dmark to high priority on Windows Task Manager, or power plan?

    Hey guys,

    What kind of GPU slot does the P170HM/NP8170 have?

    I'm suffering from a dying Radeon HD 6970m, and trying to research eGPU kits that might work for connecting a desktop graphics card directly to the motherboard. I can't find specs that are that detailed.
