    You need to be VERY careful and make sure an EXTERNAL monitor is hooked up for best results, but if you are 100% sure you will not short out anything, press that button.

    Check the case cover to make sure there is no 'hole' in the case where that button is, e.g. a "paper clip hole" for pressing it
    If there IS a hole, then that is the EC Reset button and is useless.

    If there is *NOT* a hole in the chassis above that button, try pressing that. Usually such buttons are an "INTERNAL" Power button for power on while engineers service the laptop. BE VERY CAREFUL if trying that with the case open !

    Hmm... Not sure about that microswitch close to the USB on power plug side. Speaking about that side, when you put back the motherboard, the side with the ethernet port must go into the chassis first. Then when placing down the power plug side, there will be ample room.
    Did you buy from a local retailer or online?

    Online! And the Button unfortunately does nothing! :/
    Getting it serviced will probably take ages and cost a lot! Meh!

    I would restore the laptop first (thoroughly clean LM re-paste and re-apply with non liquid metal) and see if that works. If not, call up your online retailer for an exchange. if you are in the U.S., it's illegal for manufacturers to void warranty opening the machine for repair or upgrades. As long as no visible damage to components, then it should be fine. Heck, MSI has a one year Accidental Damage Coverage that can cover broken screens, dead / abused batteries, and even shorting from water spill/flooding as I interpreted.
    This is why I bought from Best Buys locally (when cost is comparable).

    Try going into Nvidia Control Panel and change the power management mode to adaptive. My gpu runs at full turbo clock automatically when needed.

    Does anyone have an GPU undervolt reference for the 1070 version of this in Afterburner? My CPU does a decent 0.150 undervolt in throttlestop already and would like to explore more thermal lowering options.
