    Here's a list of all the entries in my Device Manager for the OP 15+ ... hopefully by comparing mine to yours it might help you figure out what's missing.

    ok so still trying to dial in my 8750H it still is thermal throttling in demanding games

    I can't undervolt anymore than -.100mv or it crashes/becomes unstable. is this uncommon or just down to silicon lottery?

    I have have my cache down to -.105mv

    What are the other settings that can help? I've set my max turbo boost short power to 70W but it doesnt hold and resets to 90W...?

    I was hoping that with the correct settings in XTU and wouldn't need to use Throttle stop

    Did you re-paste? It makes a world of difference if you do it right.

    Hello,

    I have the Overpowered Gaming Laptop 17". I was trying to update the BIOS to 1.16 from 1.04 stock and I am getting an error about the bios has a different platform name. I am unable to update. Any idea or fix around this? Was looking to Hackintosh the system.

    Just want to warn you this is the 15" forum, the BIOSes here aren't really made for the 17".

    I have considered re-pasting but don't really want to go through having to disassemble it all to gain only a coupe of degrees. I think you get a much cooler CPU by running it with the correct XTU and ThrottleStop settings.

    Just downloaded Throttlestop so will play with that a little.

    Would you be able to direct me to the 17" forum or where I can find the BIOS for the 17". I greatly appreciate it.

    In my experience repasting gives you the most benefit where temps are concerned. I think on 9 out of 10 laptops repasting has dropped at least 10c from max temps for me. I've yet to receive a factory paste job that is within a couple of degrees of a repasted result.
