    Shouldn’t these RTX discussions be in the other GS65 thread?

    Yeah they should, but kept it here since I went off the information Hackness provided in this thread, as well as follow-up with other contributors about flashing VBIOS. Wanted to post results.

    Soo... setting AC/DC Loadline to 1 and disabling TDC in Core VR disables msi auto overvolting right?

    But there are the same settings for gt and system agent too. Can I set those Loadlines to 1 and disable tdc too? Or do they need the autoovervolting?

    For now I only set cpu and gt (I guess the Intel GPU?) to 1 and disabled the tdc. System Agent kinda sounds scary, as I don't want to starve several components at once.

    I appreciate any information! Also if anyone knows any additional modifications that could be made in the Bios, I would be happy to hear them.


    A stupid additional question: As the new MSI GS65 (2019) and our model are almost the same, I guess westill can't crossflash the Bios/EC Firmware right? As those seem to be newer...

    Hi Guys,
    I'm new here and wanted to get some opinions from you guys on GS65, currently there's a ongoing promotion on Microsoft store where the GS65 with 1060 was discounted to USD1199. Do you guys think is it worth to grab it? I'm looking at light gaming and some programming, is it sufficient?

    Thanks

    I think that's a steal! Be sure to repaste it to lower temps or create a profile with Throttlestop to reduce CPU speed (3.6GHz is enough for gaming in my testing).

    Probably not recommended, iGPU and System agent are kinda important and in this case what's affected is probably the stability, which means you might see lots of freezing and BSOD, probably not worth it.

    And the cross flash part that's a little scary.

    Mhm... ok so would it be okay to set the Loadline to 0? Since it says in the description, that 0 means "automatic"?

    I kinda forgot what those values were before...

    Thanks for the advice, i'm actually comparing the GS65 GTX1060 and Razer Blade 15 base model with GTX1060 as well and RB15 base model is around USD1299. I'm leaning to GS65 because of battery life and the screen, i never experience 144hz screen before and i'm not sure about the difference between 60hz and 144hz.

    You're in for a treat then. 60hz vs 144hz is a noticable difference IMO.
    Think of a 60Hz refresh as a Honda Civic at wide open throttle. 144Hz is like a Porche 911 at wide open throttle.

    Probably means back to Intel Default, not sure the actual effect though.
