    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

    Hi, I just get mine with i7-8750H and RTX 2060 6GB ver.

    Still new to undervolt.
    I wish to get a lower temperature (can run below 80C while gaming).
    Anyone can share your tips in undervolting??

    And any steps I have to do with my new laptop?

    Its weird how many people have reported terrible battery life on this model. I use battery bar to monitor my battery life more accurately and with 25% brightness and no keyboard lights on i get 5 hours pretty much every time.

    The only thing i do differently then others is set my max multiplier to 34x for better temps because i do not care about benchmarks as i just game on it and i want a quiet cooler machine.

    Also i removed the mechanical drive and am running 1 Samsung 512NVME drive and the stock 256 for the OS and running dual channel 2x8gb 2666 sticks of RAM.

    Edit i added a second screenshot of the battery usage 40 minutes in just lightly browsing the web on Chrome and doing some document work. Battery levels remain

    Don't know if it'll be your case but, bear in mind that having RivaTuner Statistics Server running shoots PKG Power consumption up like crazy.

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah thats OK i have just been tinkering since i got the machine a week ago. But this was just to show people that this machine can get much better battery life in general with very little work.

    I run in balanced mode also so i do nothing else to my machine except pull the plug and shut off MSI afterburner. The keyboard lights shut off automatically and the brightness drops to 25%.

    If i get the exteneded battery ill be curious what i can achieve on that one which i plan on doing at some point.

    Hi, After some trial and error on the configuration.
    Finally I found a best solution for my laptop.
    But when Try TS Bench on 12threads and 1024M, RING EDP OTHER and CORE PL2 still display as yellow colour.
    Any solutions to overcome these issues?

    Here is my configuration.
    Main Menu: Only Check Speed Shift and Speedstep
    EPP set as 84
    FIVR: CPU Core offset -125mv IccMax 255.75A
    CPU Cache offset -125mv IccMax 148.00A
    Check Disable and Lock Turbo Power Limits
    TPL: Turbo Boos Long Power Max/Short Power Max : 65/85,
    untick both Clamps
    Turbo Time Limit 56
    PP0 Current Limit 192
    Tick Speed Shift and Enable Speed Shift when ThrottleStop starts

    If anyone still care about this topic (maybe @barichon ?), I just asked PCSpecialist France about silent keyboards ("brown switches") and they told me they still have no provision and that it might need a few more month to get them...
    I'm so bored of the stock clicky keyboard that doesnt actually need to click to actuate a key. I wish we could find the silent keyboard soon by ourself...

    Maybe one day, it might appear on either taobao, or aliexpress. As the plastic bottom cover did.

    Has anyone installed a newer BIOS in 2060 RTX version? I don't know if I can install it the same way as for 1060 version. And another question, there are many opinions about thermal pastes, which one is the best? I would be better if somone with 2060 version could tell me. At stress CPU temp rises up to 96 degrees.
