    steal anything you want bro including the signature and edit it to your specs. we are on the MSI Team now so having a universal signature looks better

    That's a 4.2 GHz OC with a -100mV core/ring voltage offset and a 150MHz GPU Core / 300 MHz GPU Memory OC

    Fans on AUTO not max blast so expect the temps to be lower on max blast

    Thermal paste on my CPU/GPU is IC Diamond using the X Cross method

    well, I when i was still researching about this laptop, I saw a pretty good deal on xotic pc. I talked to an xotic pc technician asking him what the benefits of IC diamond thermal paste were. He said it was definitely better than the stock paste and told me i could see a temp decrease of anywhere from 2-3 degrees to 6+degrees depending on the age of the laptop and the quality of stock thermal paste applied. Also, IC diamond will last longer and be more effective than the stock thermal paste over time.
    There was another paste called Cool Laboratory Liquid Ultra which was supposedly better than the IC diamond, but there was a risk of short circuiting the mobo. I knew these guys were pros and would do a great job, but I didn't want to take the risk. SO i went with the IC Diamond Paste.

    hey bro
    did you overclock using dragon center? Also, how did you OC the cpu to 4.2Ghz. I know the multiplier is upto 42 in dragon center, but i read reviews and saw vids on youtube where the laptop went max upto 4.1ghz and if you tried to OC to 4.2ghz, then the blue screen of death would appear and you would have to reboot it. I think it was for the 6rf, not 7rf. Not sure

    In your experience how much of a differenc does keeping HWinfo off make? I was so close to 16000 in Firestrike I wonder if turning it off would make a difference?
