    Hi,

    I'm trying to do a Windows 10 clean install on my GT73VR, but the windows installer cannot find the RAID partition. What driver is needed here?

    Thank you

    Fabian

    Edit: Ah, it's that F6 driver :)

    The panel is 4k none gsync.
    I was curious as to what people as far as oc went.

    So, is it best to use dgc or uninstall

    And use xtu, the biod and after burner?

    It's up to you. I'd get to know the DGC options fully before graduating to manual settings.

    Make notes of where DGC sets OC for CPU / GPU, and then create a manual test profile to mimic your favorite DGC settings, that's to practice using XTU.

    BIOS settings are differently set, and you'll want to look to posts here about using it - most people don't - the use XTU or TS for CPU. I don't think the BIOS has GPU OC settings at all as those are done with the vBIOS.

    Hello there,

    I got the GT73VR 7RF with 4k screen but with gsync panel,fantastic graphics.
    Im still trying around with OC'ing its new for me and i had alot of heat problems on my CPU since i had this laptop (january this year) but after a second! Repaste with thermal grizzly conductonaut its a massive difference.

    I have both XTU and DGC installed and i change things in XTU,only thing i do is too set the same core ratio in DGC as it is in XTU and i tune the fans in DGC.
    Ive tried alot already,undervolt,overvolt,lower core speed,higher core speed,running stress tests and benchmarks but i can have a stable laptop for days and then at once......blue screen .....i dont know why sometimes.
    At the moment i have only set my cores too X42 for the rest nothing.
    Before the repaste i couldnt even get too X38 and my CPU went too more then 90 degrees already,now i barely hit the 70 so im really happy with that.
    But with the OC tuning its not going that great too get it stable,and i see here scores pass by from 3D mark were i start scratching my head Because i wont come further then 6750.
    BUT....its new for me so maybe that has something to do with what kind of screen etc you got i dunno.

    About this,were can i set these settings?
    I play world of warcraft most of the times and i just made a profile in Nvidia Control Panel and they told me too set Gsync on and Vsync also,but only in Nvidia control panel,not ingame and it looks pretty smooth and i got always 60fps only in raids with alot of ppl and stuff happening it will drop too around 40 (on lowest setting possible in raid) .

    But maybe i can learn something more,or am i doing things wrong.

    Can you uninstall XTU please? First and foremost (if necessary, use and activate the default XTU profile in profiles, before uninstalling).
    Then go into your BIOS and set "CPU Current Limit" to 400 in the OC section.

    Then use throttlestop 8.48 instead.
    Goto FIVR, click the overclock button and set the multipliers to x42.

    Once you do this, can you please do a test.
    Download and install prime95.
    GO to UNDOC.txt and read about how to disable AVX And FMA instructions (By setting the values to 0)
    Those values will go in LOCAL.txt.

    Then go to throttlestop, set both CORE and CACHE adaptive OFFSET voltages to -100mv.
    Then run prime95 blend test and see if you get any errors. Please set advanced->roundoff error checking and sum inputs checking enabled.

    This is a 7820HK cpu, right?

    Do you mean in the BIOS the CPU ratio or the VR Current limit?

    VR Current limit.
    You can't use a cpu ratio of 400, lol
