    Yeah, I noticed that when I had a -180mv underclock, the cpu was literally being starved :D but no BSOD even then. Seems like I get lucky every time with the silicon lottery, first my 4940mx, next my 7920hq and now my 9900k. What could be better...

    Bro I want to find your benchmark scores at stock, and that will be possible today as I’m finally putting in the tm1 heatsink. Hopefully all goes to plan, then I’m selling this laptop. I miss the gt83 greatly, that 18.4 screen and the sound quality are simply unbeatable.

    :D
    Cache is at x36 multiplier any lower and I’m getting worse performance. I’d rather have my 9900k burn out then have crap performance :D

    Looooool, msi are crap but some stuff is decent. Like how they managed to use dynaudio a company that makes amazing custom speakers for cars, mainly VW (like my unreliable golf r, that damn DSG gearbox :mad:)
    Cooling too is outstanding as well as no performance limitation, I mean like 0 power throttling on my previous Gt83, I was shocked lol, maybe I was lucky who knows.

    EDIT: A 8850H is more than enough for me and I know I’ll find a buyer on these forums for my beastly laptop, of course if I don’t drop in an rtx 2080 which is strongly possible...

    That's what I'm doing too. From three options that we have with KMs:
    1. Swap CPU support (back plate) for TM one,
    2. Reduce the height of stand offs from original KM CPU support (back plate),
    3. Use 5mm copper shim(s),
    I'm going with #3 (can't get TM back plate without mobo, asked everywhere and I would like to have stock KM back plate just in case).
