    Does MS sell a bigger AC adapter? I thought they max out at 105W. I believe if they went with a Max-Q 1060, the battery would never drain, or like you said, a bigger PSU. What's also damn funny, after googling the battery drain issue while gaming, nearly every site reporting on the issue has half of it's commenters defend MS, because it's “not a gaming machine”. Sometimes i do wonder if this fanatic fanboyism is real or just high end trolling.

    What kind of connector they use? is it usb type c?
    150W is ideal one to use. Otherwise you need serious undervolting of cpu and gpu to stop battery drain.

    They use this magsafe style thing:

    Cool thing is, if you buy the MS dock, you can charge and exoand from just one port. Bad thing is: not enough juice from the PSU and according to reviews on the MS store, very badly made PSUs.

    Am I seeing TB3 port then see if you buy Apple's Macbook charger 65W and MS Magsafe 3 or whatever can provide enough juice.

    No, you are seeing normal USB C. MS refuses to put TB3 in their machines so far.

    Right now I am about -85mV on Core and Cache and Intel GPU. System is running fine even while gaming.

    Best regards

    Personally I don't recommend undervolt of iGPU because sometimes it introduce UI lags or stutters. If the undervolt of iGPU isn't causing any issues then go ahead.
    I undervolt CPU,cache,System agent and analog/digital IO to same values to see great reduction in temps.

    The issue with battery drain while still plugged in is one game, set to one setting....anything else is fine.
