    Was that 98 with an undervolt?

    Well, I can't figure out the clock limiting issue. It's back again. All I did was play PUBG. It's not a temp thing because the same temps were running at 1800mhz

    And my temps are at 64C full load currently.

    It's wild how much ambient air temp affects these compared to what I remember from desktops.

    All stock.

    It is a good almost-free mod, all jokes aside. It messes up the one-handed opening of the display, but that's about the only downside if you can find some better non-stick stoppers. I think rubber door stoppers like you'd find at Home Depot or Lowes in the US would work and would be almost aesthetically pleasing.

    You guys should be undervolting these and replacing the paste. Way too close to TJ MAX temp of 100c.

    @BrinNutz. Ambient temps makes a significant when the margin is this small being a laptop. Also, PUBG is a lousy way to test clock speed. That title does not use any hardware component to its max.

    I plan to undervolt soon.

    It is limited in 3DMark, anything graphics intensive. But I can't figure out what causes it. It isn't Temps or program related. But a restart once it kicks in fixes it after I changed power settings.

    something wrong with your cooling, i never had anything above 85(it was with auto fans)
    with maxed fans fn+1, 81max.
    so its bad paste or bad contact with cooler.

    @BrinNutz
    you are talking about video right? you should mention it 1st of all, before all this mind flood.
    nominal freqs for cards are there 14xx, 1800 its turboboosted freqs for card, and it used when it needed. If your game not bottled at video card and video card is pretty much in idle, it just dont feel reason to go on 1800.
    Check it with gpuz, it give you reason of perf. cap.

    Highest I have seen was about 95C. But that was in an already extremely warm hotel room. Max fans, elevated back have not been bad.

    Thanks for the explanation, makes sense that I have the reason idle. What's funny though is at other times it peaks and is over 1468 during the game, then other times (same game) it won't be above 1468. Temps are same. I would imagine 3DMark would push those needs to use the turbo boost, but it didn't. I bet I could go run it again and see the higher clock speeds.

    Opened up my 1710 today to test a 15mm drive in the HDD bay, and if you are REALLY a diehard must-have, you could, but you'll have some lovely flexing of the bottom case cover. It gets close to closing normally, and you could force it closed and screw down, and you'll need to be creative in keeping the HDD in place. On the upside, the SATA cable has plenty of flexibility to accommodate the 15mm drive.

    Tho, I will reiterate, I don't recommend it for the skiddish in laptop modding. Now about ordering that 4TB HDD... :D

    Howdy y'all

    I recently (well over black friday) purchased a 15 inch dark ash HP spectre for around the same price as the 1510 powerspec.

    I got the laptop out of impulse b/c it's literally LITERALLY the most beautiful laptop ever made, the other close 2nd being the 13 inch variant of the dark ash HP spectre.

    I also purchased a desktop PC via bestbuy for like 630 from the sale but it had a faulty PSU and a severely underforming GPU, aka faulty product... so I returned that.

    Now it's almost return deadlines and I am without a desktop.

    I have been considering returning the HP spectre for to pick up the 1510 because I just really like laptops and the 1510 would make a good desktop replacement, moving every now and then when I need to take it places for work or whatnot.

    Being generally sedentary, is it bad to have it plugged it 78% of its' time in my possession? (aka it's a desktop-replacement for most of it's life.)
    EDIT:: like is it okay to have it plugged in though? I did that with my vaio and it was fine... sort of. The battery died last year so it was just always needing to be plugged in. I used to have small dreams of it sometimes coming back, never came true. Stayed dreams.
    I have two laptop coolers that I can magically stack on top of each other because I'm a mad-man.

    I just know that if I return this HP spectre, I will miss out on a guaranteed working laptop that I got for like 350 dollars off.

    Is there a risk in getting the 1510? Like with temperatures and whatnot? I definitely don't want the 1710, that thing is a skinny gorilla.

    -I read almost all the messages but I lost track of who was who and what y'all systems were with the 1710 and the 1510 being in the same thread.

    So far, I understand that temps SHOULD be fine with the 1510..?
    I should turn all settings to 60 fps to avoid screen tearing and use GSYNC
    something about undervolting by like 100 or something
    something about discrete/mshybrid (goes with g-sync)
    something about...

    wait as I write this I just had a grand idea. Maybe I should flip my cooling pad over and have it SUCK the hot air out of a laptop instead of blowing cool air into it... do you think that's just stupid?

    Also anyway, so the frames are set at 60 hz but can I plug in a 144 monitor to it VIA mini display port and do that when I have an itch to web browse at 144? (I played games on a 5 year old vaio with a intel 520 or something so I'm whatever about game FPS but the 144 hz when web browsing is literally the highlight of 2017... and I freaking graduated this past fall [ clapclap took 6 years ])

    Is there room for a 2.5 inch SSD in there? I have a 2.5 inch SSD that I've been holding onto just in case I get another desktop but with the prices atm, the desktop may have to wait... I'm not paying 1.8x the price of a desktop.
