    A repaste would certainly lower temps, but I don't think it would increase performance.

    The GPU clearly has a 145-150W power limit and can reach that power level easily without overheating. I've got my voltage curve adjusted so that it sips power and won't go beyond ~1800MHz because anything north of that bumps into the power ceiling.

    The CPU is also power limited but that limit occurs about the same time as thermal throttling. It's here that I think a repaste could help a bit. Under gaming loads, the CPU never goes over 82-83C, but the total power draw also isn't near the 45W chip limit. Non-optimized tasks like games rarely pull more than 20-25 watts. With a repaste, I could jack up the overclock so that I see more like 35-40 watts in-game and still skirt under bad temps. Honestly, I don't think there is much benefit to this. With a power capped GTX1080, the CPU is DEFINITELY not a bottleneck in this machine. I've run intense FEA simulations while also running benchmarks/PUBG and it has no impact on frame rates.

    Mostly I would be using it for work,software development, email, MS Office, web browsing, Twitch/YouTube, and playing Blizzard games. I play a lot of Overwatch, and some D3/WOW. I don't think I will heat this thing up much, and that 15% that its shy of a full 1080 wont mean much to me. I have a 1950x watercooled Threadripper box w/1080TI Hybrid that I do most of my heavier gaming on anyway. I think I'm going to pick one up, and if it gives me any headaches Ill exchange or refund it.

    Had an issue once where my orochi when I connected it to my blade pro 2013 killed all i/o on the system and it was 100% unrecoverable even after multiple reboots.
    My mamba never worked right with my blade pro 2013.
    My blade pro 2013 had similar issues with the keyboard except it would repeat keys indefinitely until a conflicting key was pressed. Was a serious issue with function keys like control, caps, shift, escape, alt, etc. -- Razer was, for some reason, unable to reproduce this issue: (repeating r key and dead SBUI video: https://1drv.ms/v/s!AuMOrXc4ORHpkKlL_mVFHDvH7YmiiQ)

    Seems as though similar issues plague Razer products 4 years later...

    Hi, let's see if someone can help me sort this out...:

    I have a Razer Blade Pro 7820hk, Win 10 Pro (1709), 512gb ssd. I'm triying to activate the gaming mode on Synapse, just to try temps with the fans sets on high, but when i select gaming mode or Balance mode on High, the fans just stay the same... My main question is, should the fans start running inmediatedly on high just by selecting High on synapse? Or will they start only under load?

    NOTE: I have the process RazerPerformance DISABLED (i have CPU undervolted so i dont know if that process will mess Throttlestop), so i dont know if that process have something to do with it... lights on keybord and everything else works fine.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi there,

    Hope someone can help. I am in need of a copy of back up bios for this laptop.
    I messed up firmware and lost internal display but external is OK.

    Thank you in advanced

    @Donald@HIDevolution

    The day has come. I just shipped my 2017 RBP work laptop back to HID for repairs. Very thankful that we opted for the extended warranty from HID when this was purchased over a year ago. While under heavy load last night, the unit shut down and would not restart. No amount of pressing/holding/mashing the power button resulted in so much as a fan peep from the machine. I tested with my spare PSU and the result was the same.

    HID has been very responsive and I'm looking forward to hearing about what they find. I suspect that the past year of extreme thermals has caused something inside to pop. I am hoping that both SSDs and their content are ok and that it is a MOBO or power supply circuitry issue. This machine did have a bulging battery about 8 months ago which has been sitting outside the unit ever since. I know several others have also had battery issues. I'm curious how much HID will be able to do with the machine and whether or not it will be sent back to Razer for diagnostics/repair.

    I am going to have them repaste the CPU/GPU with LM and add their own thermal pads to various components. Should have more info in a few weeks.

    HID received the unit on Monday 8/20 and checked it into the RMA department on Thursday 8/23. Have not heard back since then. I'm not holding my breath that I get it back anytime soon knowing that they will have to deal with Razer to figure out the repair.

    Ok thanks, I'll be paying close attention because I have the same system now and I hope mine doesn't "Pop" lol...
