    Is it okay to undervolt the cpu and overclock the gpu at the same time? Or should I just stick with just undervolting the cpu? And what is the purpose of undervolting the gpu? Is it just to get the temps lower? Will undervolting the gpu affect its performance (lower fps)?

    It's ok to undervolt both at the same time. Undervolting the GPU is supposed to lower the temps, which translates to higher sustained boost clock speeds, which in turn leads to better performance. I have a stable voltage curve on MSI Afterburner set to 1911 Mhz at 881 mV for the GTX 1060 in this laptop. It stays at that speed until the GPU hits 70 C, where it then drops by 13 Mhz for every 5 C increase in temps afterwards.

    Should be a button on your keyboard.

    Also, while in the BIOS, it sets the values to optimized defaults.....

    I placed a moderate amount of paste over both dies and and then used the included plastic spreader to apply it evenly all over.

    What is the latest BIOS update for the Mech-17 G1R with an i7-8750h and an RTX 2060? Also, is it necessary to update to that BIOS?

    Does anyone have any advice on how can I get the idle PKG Power any lower?

    The lowest I could get it is 5W on complete idle, only by disabling the dGPU in Device Manager and a fresh restart, otherwise it's drawing a solid 12W, which enables the laptop to run exactly for 1 hour and 30 minutes idling on battery...

    I do not use MSI Afterburner, absolutely nothing is running on the dGPU and tried all the settings in Gaming Center
