    Awesome! Welcome to the HIDevolution Gaming Team.

    Email donald@hidevolution.com before you order if you want to get the NBR Forum discount

    Then feel free to tag me when you get it if you want me to tune it for you.

    Here are the Ultra Male Tweaks:

    1- Uninstallation of all the Windows Store Garbage Apps like 3D Paint, Print 3D, Alarms & Clock, Feedback Hub, Maps, Groove Music, News, Weather, etc.
    2- Removing all Windows 10 Privacy Invasion stuff like Telemetry, sending your keystrokes to Microsoft, automatically installing suggested apps in the background, allowing Microsoft to conduct experiments on your laptop, disabling automatic driver updates through Windows updates, disabling Windows 10 ads, disabling Cortana, Cloud Search etc.
    3- Disabling Microsoft Edge from starting up automatically in the background upon reboot.
    4- Adjusting a lot of options in PC Settings like disabling Windows Tablet Mode (you have a laptop not a tablet), disabling suggestions appearing in the start menu, disabling automatically connecting to Paid WiFi Hotspots, disabling Game DVR which reduced performance in games, and a lot more.
    5- Replacing Cortana with a much better search tool that finds results instantly called Everything which finds any file you want as soon as you start typing even a few letters of its name and it doesn't even rely on the Windows Indexing Service to do this!
    6- Restoring the classic Windows Photo Viewer
    7- Restoring the Classic Windows 7 Start Menu
    8- Removal of the new and useless 3D Objects Folder that appears when you open "Computer"
    9- Completely disabling Windows Defender from its roots (including all scheduled tasks and startup files) for those who want to install their own AV. ESET NOD32 Antivirus is highly recommended if you want the utmost security with the least system performance impact.
    10- Updating all drivers to the latest versions in case they weren't up to date.
    11- Disabling the performance hit that is caused by the Meltdown and Spectre patches recently released by Microsoft (optional, only if you don't mind having this security vulnerability and would rather have your CPU's full performance back)
    12- Overprovisioning your SSD anywhere between 10-20% depending on how much space you can spare to ensure optimal and consistent performance at all times.
    13- Blocking the Google Chrome Software Reporter Tool (which causes a high system load when it is scanning files)
    14- Preventing Microsoft Edge from running on startup in the background
    15- Creating a system restoration image using Macrium Reflect

    Hey.. so how do I tag ultra male?
    I'm sorry I'm a newb at all of this. (background: I have ordered my previous 2 msi laptops with no upgrades because all I care about is just playing games but I've had thermal issues and I don't need that.. so it got me here and I have been reading about resellers and I think HIDevolution is the answer to everything I want but still I have not done this before so still trying to figure it out lol :confused: )

    Thanks for the help!

    And don't tag him randomly to see if it's working. He doesn't like that. Tag someone like brother @ Papusan . He likes it :) He likes people who buy BGAbooks.
    No lies.

    Once you get it, when you first turn it on and get the initial Windows 10 Setup Wizard, it will prompt you to connect to a Wireless Network, click on SKIP on the bottom right otherwise you will be forced to login with a Microsoft account which I strongly advice against.


    Also, when it prompts you to enter a password, leave the blank for now as during our tweaking session, we will need to reboot a lot and that will just slow us down.


    First thing I want you to do to save us time is to right click on your start menu button, then choose SYSTEM, from there, hit Rename This PC and choose a name for your computer. (ie. I name mine TITAN). The name should be in capital letter. Some of the tweaks are tied to the PC name and thus, you want to name it properly from the get go rather than keeping the default random name which Windows assigns it (DESKTOP-999-BLABLABLA)


    Next, go to PC Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and perform all the Windows updates. After rebooting, check for updates again just to make sure there aren’t any more updates


    Then download and install TeamViewer then run it, it will give you an ID/Password which you could pass on to me via a PM so I can connect to you.


    You won't be able to PM me unless I PM you first so what you want to do is, when you get it, just tag me by using the @ sign then type my username right after it with no spaces and I will PM you then

    Hiya everyone. I'm close to ordering a GT75 from HIDevolution. Has anyone tried the UHD screen? I'm not going to play games on it but edit videos and photos on them. The UHD seems to have 100% Adobe RGB which should be much better than the 120Hz 1080p screen. However, the webpage says IPS level so I guess it is still a TN screen.

    Thanks everyone!
    Andreas

    IPS Level means TN although the colors on MSI panels are very nice for being TN.

    This is the color accuracy of my 120hz panel on my MSI GT75 for example:

    Before you order a 4K Screen, be sure to read this:

    How does anyone in his right mind buy a 4K screen laptop?

    Also, before ordering, email donald@hidevolution.com to see how you can get the NBR Forum discount
