    Works fine on mine.
    Using Samsung 840 Evo 1TB mSATA.

    AU Optronics B140HAN01.1

    No, it doesn't downclocked.
    As if it's plugged in.

    Does the new BIOS change the fan profile? I just got mine and this thing is pretty loud.

    TBH it depends on how many hours of use there is in your typical school day.
    I have long consecutive lectures from 11 to 5 and the 63 Wh can barely make it at the lowest brightness, stealth fan, no backlight, no windows effects etc. Turning on wifi only when you need it helps with that a long way.

    Do you hear the fans when idle and when performing low intensive tasks?

    That's probably around how many hours ut will be, I really don't know how many hours yet, because there are some month until I start there. That is a bit disappointing, though, so I have to think a bit bore about the laptop then.

    Anyway, thanks for the answer!

    It tends to bounce between low and off when doing things like browsing the web. Low is pretty audiable.

    Also, has anybody been able to stop the CPU from throttling without turning off turbo boost? I still get throttling while playing BF Hardline, even after a 65mV undervolt and ICD repaste.

    So after the pic yesterday I thought I'd share my experience repasting the CPU and GPU :)
    Stuff you need:
    Screwdriver (I used mine for glasses)
    Better-than-stock paste (i.e. anything you can buy for more than $5), using my trusty NT-H1
    Isopropyl alcohol (75% or 99% are both ok)
    Facial tissue
    Patience;)

    RAM slots opened, very naturally a first step for me

    Unscrewed everything. Took extra care to not let screws fall too far. I'd say group those screws too for easier re-screwing.
    Note that there are two screws with stickers on it, most likely a warranty seal. Continue this step at your own risk.

    A nice, copper surface. I guess every bit of cooling helps.

    Seriously though, preserve those chrome fan stickers. That way you won't bust your warranty.

    NIC and SSD model in case you are curious.

    Interesting placement. Guess they went into great lengths into the real estate.

    I digress. Now loosen the three screws on each die out slowly and all is left is the sticky compound.

    Can't say it's a bad pasting really, but I usually won't expect much either.

    Look at the gunk above the CPU die!:eek:

    3 swabs and a couple tissue later...

    Honestly not a bad temp, GPU receives a five degrees cut and the CPU a whopping 8 degrees:cool: I <3 Noctua 4ever:D

    I'll need some time before I can adequately log more temps into Afterburner so stay tuned.
