    The igpu/dgpu led is not working properly sometimes. But optimus is working properly.

    @seanwee
    Do you remember your stock graphics score in firestrike?
    It is around 20200 for me with around 21300 using MSI afterburner and a 150 OC.

    I am just trying to decide if i was lucky/unlucky on the computer.
    Seems good considering notebookcheck got around 20k (1980 ish)

    Otherwise this finally feels good.
    From Lenovo y740 (to big), gs75 8sf (to weak) to the gs75 9sg.
    Its really a remarkable difference ingame from the 8sf verison. 20-30% better framrates.
    I had a old 970m asus laptop from 2015 before. so its basically double the framerates in witcher 3... now to reinstall good old modded skyrim again...

    21300 sounds about right. I also did the imon slope tweak and overclock the ram to get 17k+ cpu score.

    Ok, thanks for the input. Out of interest, How did you get the graphics score another 1000. Was that due to the oc ram or something else?

    Also another thing. I have so far not removed dragon center. (Since I am considering dropping afterburner and instead using turbo and oc there instead.)
    And from what I have heard;
    Eco mode is power saving mode, (no cpu turbo)
    Comfort mode is like balanced energy scheme: CPU can use turbo, but no change to GPU.
    Sport mode is max performance energy scheme: CPU can use turbo and some kind of dynamic OC to the gpu.
    And turbo mode is basically sport mode where I can OC the gpu like in afterburner.

    I have tried firestrike both in comfort and sport mode, with throttlestop and afterburner active and I see no real difference in points.

    Have anyone noticed a difference between comfort and sport mode when using these programs?

    I have not tested that before but I don't think they will have any significant impact. Turbo mode just sets a gpu overclock, sport does nothing, not sure about comfort, and eco turns on automatically when I'm on battery.

    I got the extra 1000 points by using optimised nvidia drivers and pushing the gpu oc to +160 core, +800 memory. The ram oc helps increase the cpu score.

    I have been using dragon center to limit the max battery charge to 70-80% but all of a sedden windows decided that 70-80% is the max capacity of the battery and now its showing 100% when it's actually only at 70% charge.

    MSI battery calibration tool doesn't work. Any ideas how to fix this?

    Use AIDA64 to check battery info such as battery life and wear level.

    I have installed the latest version of Dragon Center two days ago and it has stopped working, it does not run either at the start or manually. I can not fix it or installing clean, or with the previous version. Any ideas?
