    When green they're just off it seems. And with blue they're a different shade. Not sure this is worth sending it in for though. Fingers crossed they don't die completely, though the warranty is for about 2 more years so there's that.

    Yeah thats a common problem. The green led on steelseries keyboards just don't last long. I have two defective keys myself.

    The only way to get it fixed is to RMA it.

    Guys,

    What is your default Fan Curve if you are using SilentOption?

    Also, is there any benefit (performance wise) if I unlock the cpu via BIOS?

    I like to maintain the temperature below 70s.

    As of now my temperature are 68 to 70 max. All games performing well also. Fps games (apex, cod mw) have 100 to 120framerate,

    Other heavy graphics games run at above 70fps average.

    If you want to keep temperatures below 70s then bypassing the cpu power limit won't be an option.

    Yes, it will improve performance in cpu workloads(+20%) and cpu heavy games (+5-10%) but that is at the cost of significantly higher temperatures.

    In games like apex you won't see any performance improvement.

    As for fan curve mine is 0%, 20%, 60% then 78% for the rest. 78% just happens to be the noise/cooling sweet spot for my particular unit.

    Are you planning on RMA'ing yours? I am very happy with my machine so unless a backlight goes dark completely, I won't be sending mine in probably.

    Yeah same here. I'll only be sending it back before the warranty expires.

    @seanwee I remember you overclocked the RAM. Do you have a link to the guide on how to do that? Can't find it :(

    I need to go through that guide too. I just got that GSKILL 3200Mhz ram installed. Once XMP'd it just auto-crashes once getting into windows. As of right now, I'm running it at a seemingly stable 2933Mhz @ CL17 (I just took the default RAM profile and bumped up the speed multiplier). I think 3200 might be doable after some tweak??? lol...

    I just looked at that pinned guide, maybe I need to adjust the uncore voltage to try to run it at XMP speeds?
