    Well, the screen fell off today again while gaming, Happened twice in a single week. as mentioned in my earlier post. IMG_20200923_230100.jpg IMG_20200923_230036.jpg IMG_20200923_230027.jpg

    If anyone's wondering, The adhesive is only at the top and the bottom, the ones at the sides are way too thin and won't even stick. Disappointing.

    Holy crap! That is a total fail! Hope they fix this quick and give you some sort of compensation.

    Wow that sucks,did it just happen?I'm definitely keeping mine more tilted back now ..Its messed up for how much this model costs that they's do something this cheap..I guess there always gotta be one infamous defect,we went from broken hinges to whole panels falling off.

    I'm scared to do it myself but im talking this guy at a lock repair shop into doing it for me.Haha he had no idea what it was but he said he's good at soldering so ill just guide him along i guess..I got a 1440p monitor now so I can deff use the performance increase.
    And that 2070 turned into a beast man I love seeing the increases each time.That firestrike is just a little below the 2080Smq.

    Hi,

    I'm thinking about returning my Legion 7i with 10750H and rtx2080S that I got from Costco and replace it with the GE66-288 with the similar specs. My legion GPU is super cool (below 65C) but the CPU is getting throttled all the time at 99C, even undervolt -.1 it still gets up to 95C.
    I was wondering if MSI uses different pastes on different configurations since I figured the 10875H or i9 would run much hotter than the 10750H.

    Your CPU on the Legion shouldn't be that high unless you ran it at full speed during benchmarks. The performance difference wouldn't change between the 2 since the paste in both are pretty average. You will want to repaste the CPU, GPU and maybe the thermal pads. I know I did that for my GS66.

    I got the same model GE66 and i'd do it if I was you.The 10750h will still hold 4.3ghz all cores and as long as you undervolt it and drop the ratios to 43 you'll never throttle.And you can really push the 2080SMQ as well.It will still boost up to 105w.

    Just confirmed that nividia did disable adjusting core voltage in the newer drivers for the 2080 super max q atleast..I rolled back to 456.02 and I can adjust it again and it actually takes effect.
