    Welp gentech says it's "probably" shippings fault. As in, it took a week to get to me, and I guess they claim the LM application was messed up from it being sideways or something during that time. Who knows. Anyway will be sending it back for a reapplication. Will have to do fast shipping one way or another this time.

    PLEASE HELP:

    New GS65 2080 Max Q came in yesterday from Gentech PC...it's been a myriad of issues. Had to do a clean install just to get Steam to run without crashing. Can't even get system info to load into 3d Mark. But here the real kicker:

    Time spy score - 4031
    Firestrike - 10,984
    Cinebench - 1198

    Something is very wrong. I'm not even close to other's benchmarks. I'm about to run more tests to narrow down the issue.

    I found someone with a full 2080 bios that MATCHES the same GPU and Rev ID. I've asked this person to send it over to me.
    Once I get it, cross your fingers and hope this doesn't blow up my laptop lol...

    Your CPU score is fine, especially for a completely stock unit with no undervolt.
    Your GPU scores though...

    Have you used DDU to fully uninstall your GPU drivers? I would also go into airplane mode as you use DDU in safe mode so microsoft doesnt auto-install stuff for you.

    As I’m about to flash, I get a new error that stopped me dead in my tracks...
    Below is the error when flashing from a 80w to a 90w. Not a big deal, makes sense to me.

    But...

    When I try to flash the full 2080 bios, I get this error
    [​IMG]

    After seeing that error, I backed out. Unless someone can explain this Board ID subsystem and explain it to me, I won’t be flashing to the full bios. Feels WAY TOO RISKY for me...

    I went for it. And it error’d out.
    Looks like this is where the journey ends folks...

    At the very least, we CAN flash to a 90w bios with no issues besides increased heat.

    Thanks for testing and even risking it. Sadly I don't know about the ID either. Perhaps there might be hardware differences we havent accounted for, between the max q and normal versions. I was sure that with pascal, the max q versions were simply firmware coded for lower power envelope, but this time something else might be different.

    It could be. I went through the trouble of finding my Kill-A-Watt and running Cinebench to choose one of my CPU profiles that pulls a certain amount of watts lol. Oh well.
    As an FYI, this firmware came from a GE75.
    It could be that it’s also a MXM card. Not sure though...
    For now, we know what can be used “safely”.
