    Using the regular windows power profiles, is there a reason to set the profile to High Performance? Wouldn't the Balance profile have the same effect on high load games?

    Not really, with current games you may not notice it yet but there is some difference. Balanced profile has lower clocks when GPU is on full load while high perfomance profile gives it an extra boost of 100-150Mhz (at least for me), it also keeps the CPU frequency at maximum possible all the time.

    Wow, didn't know this. I am guessing it is the same for the NVIDIA setting of "Optimal Performance", "Adaptive" and "Preferred Maximum Performance". The only thing that worries me about Preffered Max Performance in the NVIDIA settig is that even moving the mouse in the desktop will max clock the GPU.

    Used Windows Fresh Start tool and got a clean install without booting from USB. Undervolted to -125mv and I am afraid to go lower. This is the 7700HQ i7. Do you think I should try going lower.

    Edit: holy **** -150mv and has not crashed yet

    Don't be afraid the find the lowest limits.you cannot destruct cpu this way.you should be afraid if you do overvolt.if your system freezes or so called bsod state occurs then you know that you reached the limit and go back up with your mV a bit.
