    I have lag in all the animations of the system and in all the programs I use such as scrolling or resizing a window ... what can I do?

    Sounds like optimus issue(s). Google "optimus + other key words" to find out more.

    I know Walmart's release of these models has been highly criticized, but I think they present a fair value now on sale. I have yet to see legitimate criticism of these laptops beyond poor customer support and lackluster pricing.

    $699 for 8300H/GTX 1050/8GB RAM... low-end, but a good option for casual gamers or entertainment laptops
    $1,199 for i7-8750/GTX 1060/16GB RAM... competitive price for the specs
    $1,499 for i7-8750/GTX 1060/32GB RAM... a lot of storage for the price (256GB SSD + 2TB HDD) plus the 17.3" inch screen: an interesting option for a budget workstation

    Pricing is on par with, or beats out other resellers of this chassis.

    Any idea why my fan profile in office mode automatically goes to 70% fan speed when starting an app or at idle? I can not change it unless I press the turbo fan button.. temps are 50c..

    I have the 17" model from cyberpower. I know there is a 17" thread but there are way more experienced users on the 15" and they are very similar with similar software issues from the same manufacturer.

    I am trying to adjust the fan to my liking but it seems to have a mind of its own and doesn't really follow the game center settings too closely. On idle my temps are around 35c which is great for a laptop but it always boots with the fans running and takes five minutes for it to shut them off. Unless I am unplugged in battery saver mode, it will sporadically turn the fans on and off. Sometimes it will spin all the way up for no good reason and spin back down and turn off.

    Also want to know if there are any new bios available. Cyberpower's site is lacking in drivers and support.

    I've been looking high and low for a black version of this chassis in the United States. HIDEvolution, Eluktronics, and Walmart all sell this chassis in a "gunmetal grey" color. I thought I finally found it in black with the CyberPowerPC version of this chassis; the Tracer III 15 Slim. However, as per this video, it seems the lid is still a "gunmetal grey" color.



    Can anyone confirm this for me? If it does turn out to be grey, are there any actual distributors of this chassis in the US that sell a black chassis? Thanks mates.

    Very interested in a solution to this. I have a 17” on the way, and Cyberpowerpc support seems quite limited.

    Hello ladies and gents, I haven't been on the forum for a long long time, there's like 60 pages since I last visited. Are there any great improvements bios-wise? I have the Mechrevo 1.10 with EC 1.23, is there anything better? (in terms of performance, power efficiency, anything).

    I stopped visiting the forum around the time when we were talking about free screen replacement by PCSpecialists because the first panel they sold it with that this horrible light leak and this strange effect when using the screen with low brightness. How about that, anyone sent it back?

    Also, PCS standpoint on a larger PSU?

    Hey ,

    I just got my laptop with the 1060 card and I have a question for you. Where can I download drivers for this model?

    1) Yes, there is a bit of improvement with bios 1.11,but nothing so important. There should be also a bit of gpu performance boost

    2) I was one of the guy with the light leak. I sent the laptop back and in a week they replaced the screen.

    3) For the 180W psu replacement I don't think they replaced to anyone. I just bought an Asus 180W for 35 bucks
