    One week later with the artic silver 5 temps are good on cores 2-5 with 84 C being the max, but cores 0 and 1 for some reason get way hotter and reach 92 C. I got no idea how to solve this problem, but I'm guessing my heatsink contact points for the CPU are the reason, as I remember it looking heavily scratched when I cleaned it. Should have opened it up sooner and asked for a replacement but oh well. The sharp edges finally managed to cut me for the first time as well yesterday. Kind of want to sell it and get a 1070 or 2060 laptop instead now.

    Watch all of Bob of all Trades videos on Youtube, and Own or Disown. Those two guys have helped a ton.

    The settings I use on my device might vary in performance on yours, keep that in mind. I'm still tinkering with mine everyday with new drivers, old drivers, does this setting work better when I'm using this program in conjunction with this other program, ect.

    All I can say is, I have no buyers remorse with this device and the support here has been phenomenal, to say the least.

    Hi all,
    I tried the gaming center 2.0 on my PCS GK5CN5Z. My tests with cinebench 20 gave me excellent results, much better than the PCS 1.0 gaming center (same TDP settings, undervolting, etc.).
    With PCS GC 1.0: cb = 2739
    With GC 2.0: cb = 3089
    ---------------------------------------
    My settings:
    Max TDP: 85W
    Short TDP: 100W
    CPU Core: -130 mV
    CPU Cache: -130 mv
    Gaming Center settings: Fan Settings = Game Mode, Performance Mode = Game Mode.
    Using Cooler Master MasterGel Maker (diamond)
    ---------------------------------------
    My laptop:
    PCS RECOIL II (TONGFANG GK5CN5Z)
    CPU: i7-8750H
    GPU: GTX 1050 Ti
    RAM: 32 GB Kingstone HyperX, 2666 MHz
    SSD: 2 x 1 TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus
    POWER SUPPLY: 150W
    BIOS: PCS n.1.07 (11/08/2018)
    EC: 1.35.09
    OS: WINDOWS 10 PRO

    Good to know, I figured maybe there was a reason why none of the re-sellers were offering 4K screens, but maybe its just that Tongfang do not supply it.

    Not strictly true, I have seen 30pin 120hz FHD panels out there.

    ...please link? :D

    EDIT: nvm, looks like 30 pin 120hz screens are quite common for 15.6" laptops but not 17.3"

    Problem is that I only have speakers there. Can you tell me which version of realtek driver you are using ? I deleted realtek and kept windows audio drivers. It shows both speakers and headphone. Still it would be better if i could do this while using the realtek drivers.

    I'm not sure which model you are using, but I use the mech 15-G2R (rtx) drivers from eluktronics. If you have the 1060 version then it'd be the mech-15 G2.
