    Can anyone tell me how long the power cord is from the laptop to the power brick? I was looking at the GS65 and 75 at Best Buy today. The 75 is beautiful but it would be on a cooler in my lap for hours a day and it is bigger than I was thinking. The 65 would be perfect I think except for that power cord on the right side. The outlet I use is on the left side and the cord from the laptop needs to be long enough so the brick isn't hanging in the air.

    I haven't measured it, but it looks pretty long, at least 5-6 ft from the brick to the laptop connection. Obviously, this length doesn't include the distance from the brick to the power outlet.

    Thanks, sounds like that should be okay.

    Measured, and BRICK-to-LAPTOP is exactly 6 ft long.

    This is the only thing I did apart from LM repaste. Ok, that along with enabling Intel Speed Shift and lowering the lowest speed ratio to 800Mhz. I don't even have throttle-stop.

    Will changing the IMON Slope in the GS65 (with 2080MQ also running at full tilt ) have any ill effects on longevity down the road? Is it electrically bad or unable to maintain properly for the system, power supply, etc?

    Ah, and that lowered temps a bit for the CPU under load?


    I noticed in your mini-guide in your review you use throttlestop to lower CPU voltage but also link to the Bios unlock guide that says:

    It doesn't appear you stopped using throttlestop per you post, so did you just skip this step in the Bios tweaking guide so you could maintain the undervolt via throttlestop?

    Okay, new M.2 NVMe installed, but I have a problem (please don't laugh):
    Installation went fine, I can see the new drive (M.2 NVMe Samsung EVO 970 Plus, 1TB, in slot-2) in the BIOS, as well as in Windows "Device Manager," but I can't see it under "My Computer." (i.e. I only see my 500GB Samsung NVMe, which is where the OS is installed).

    How do I "tell" Windows a new NVMe drive is installed?

    *Edit-1: Nevermind - just found out I needed to initialize it through Windows Storage Management.

    **Edit-2: Changed my signature :)
