    Yeah makes me feel the same way.
    Unfortunately many suits and even engineers only care about them :rolleyes:

    Regarding latency, I experimented a little with windows10 settings. Disabling dynamic ticks gets you a noticeable latency reduction, but possibly at the expense of batterylife. I estimate around 15% less battery runtime and 20% latency reduction.
    For those who like to play First Person Shooters on AC mainly it is worth a try.
    To deactivate dynamic ticks execute the following in the console with Admin privileges:

    Code:
    bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes
    Afterwards reboot.

    I have been running some stress tests to have a baseline for comparison before I repaste with LM, such as occt and fs loop.
    I tried the aida fpu + gpu test that @Papusan mentioned, and it is very intense...ran it only 5 min since cpu temps reached critical temps quickly....my question is, this particular test does that with most notebooks out there?

    Running the aida cpu+gpu test....less extreme, so I will stick to that for comparison.

    Yes, but will quickly reveal overheating, bad paste jobs or poorly fitted HS. Fully working notebook cooling will handle the load. Some better, some worse.

    Then there's another firmware level limit to throttle well known benchmarks like AIDA64 or OCCT whilst running on CPU utilising AVX2 or Linpack based benchmarks, if you feel there's something when some benching apps are running, you can write your own CPU stress test to check it, if the temps aren't spiking like AIDA64 workload test then look no further its firmware level throttling. You can see similar kind of power throttle in nvidia inspector profile for OCCt and Kombuster.

    I know this is an old thread, but I acquired a 2017 Blade and using your method, I can't seem to get voltage monitored in Afterburner to see what the GPU volts are landing at.. I did the unlock voltage checks in afterburner to no avail.. is there another method?

    Edit: NVM, I see the voltage in HWInfo64.. And i'm running at .800v as well at the same clocks.. fan still ramps up to super loud levels in most AAA games at ultra settings.. but if you dial back some settings it will maintain the much quieter fan profile! Good find and thanks for the tips!
