    40 pages is a lot to go through, so was hoping someone could help me with this. Does anyone know if they fixed the plastic anchors in this update (the copper heatsink would melt the anchors in the 10 series)?

    It won’t melt the anchor, if it’s so there will be huge problem for them. Mostly I saw user who tightened it too tight and broke it when they try to access cpu and gpu for repasting. My 2018 model still not melted yet over 10 months gaming usage, and I play demanding titles like Tomb Raider, Assassins Creed, Far cry, Division etc with Turbo Boost set max 3,9 (4,1 default) and on long session often hitting 90 ish on some core, you can imagine how hot the vapor chamber.

    They reinforced the plastic anchor with a little more thickness and width around the screw hole.

    Has anyone tried Cinebench r15 out of the box? I am getting really low scores (750 on default and 900 on gaming). I wanted to get a baseline before I undervolt but my results are even lower than the low scores on notebookcheck review!

    Also I get the same gpu scores on default and gaming modes. I thought gaming mode also overclocked the gpu?

    I have the rtx 2070 version

    It shows all my scores out of the box, then with undervolt.

    Yea. Getting 1230+ consistently is only possible if you can adjust the bios. While you may not be thermal throttling, you will be current/power throttling.
