    dear customer with the current bios you have you are right but with the future release of a newer bios you will be able to reach higher frequencies and overclock better numbers please check back on our site for newer releases at a later time thanks

    thats what I got back form support. I guess specifically no support for 2666 ddr 32gb. tried 16 and it works at 2666. Gotta wait for a update I guess.... for 32gb.

    FPS low on battery: check Nvidia GeForce Experience settings and in particular Nvidia Whisper.

    Low audio: I had an issue with the new Audio toggle and the old Audio Mixer; while according to Audio Toggle the volume was 100% , in the Mixer I found that, after April Update, the volume was not 100% despite Windows 10 Audio Toggle continued to show the slider at 100%

    Thanks for the advice Derek,

    However, it did not work
    .
    After uninstalling SCM / Truecolor / Dragon center 2 and restart the system multiple times.

    The GPU is still stuck at Core 1101MHz / Mem 405MHz when resumed from Sleep (Plugged in after resumed).

    But if it enters sleep mode plugged in and resume, it won't get stuck.

    However if I unplug the cable, enter sleep mode on battery, resume and plug in the cable again, it gets stuck every single time I do this.

    And the throttle reason shown on GPU-Z says thermal throttle and it's at 54C, huh!?

    Could anyone verify this on their GS65 please?

    I'm starting to think I got a faulty machine.

    Go into your bios and load bios defaults.
    Save, exit, then check your system.

    If THAT doesn't work, power off and hold down the power button for *60* seconds then release.
    then wait for the boot loops and then go to windows and check.

    If THAT doesn't work, PM me.

    BAD DAY TODAY!

    I opened up my GS 65 today to install a second m.2 and upgrade Ram. While I was in there I also repasted with LM. After putting it all together, the Power Button is dead. I reopened it 4 more times since, checking everything, checking if LM had spilled, everything...
    it is all clean, cables are all connected up - th thing is just dead.

    Guess noone had a similar issue, yet? Power button doing nothing?

    Thanks Derek, I found the problem.

    I disabled SpeedStep and enabled Speedshift in the BIOS,

    I've tested 3 times, it does get the GPU stuck at Core 1101MHz / Mem 405MHz resumed from Battery and plug in to play games everytime I turn off the SpeedStep and use only Speedshift.

    But as soon as I turn on SpeedStep again in the BIOS, it doesn't get stuck.

    This is very strange as the Intel CPU setting is messing with GTX1070's clock rate.

    Are you sure you reconnected the cable? It's the one at the top center and really easy to miss.

    Did you plug it in? Mine did not start until power supply was plugged in. It wont boot first time off battery.

    Try to power on after connecting the PC to AC Power Adapter.
