    Thank you for the reply. I also saw a few other users reporting this issue but can't find a solution. A chinese website discussion says it's a system bug that counts NVIDIA GPU idle power as CPU uncore power. It all seems normal when GPU is in use, but when GPU is not in use, it decreases the CPU preformance.

    I ended up making an AHK script to get the F1-12 keys back after I hard modded the Fn key. Just remove the .txt extension so it becomes: fkey.ahk

    For anyone who wants to reverse the Fn key action, this seems to be a pretty good workaround.

    Hard mod the Fn key by removing the keycap, taking the switch out, taking the switch apart and removing the spring. OR Remove the keycap, remove the switch, wrap a little scotch tape to hold it down, and punch the 4 holes out so the keycap will go back down. Removing the spring allows you to easily pull the key back up if need be.

    Now that you have easy brightness/media/LED control, you will want easy F1-F12 function. How the script works:
    ` = toggle hotkey (only while held down) - It still functions normally for typing and the number keys function normally for typing too.
    1 =F1
    2 =F2
    ...
    - =F11
    = =F12

    This setup gives me what I have been looking for since I got this laptop. I would still like to figure out how to make the keyboard back-light turn off after 10 seconds of inactivity, but I'm not sure that is possible. I think GamingCenter would need to support hotkeys.

    EDIT:

    I added a little extra functionality to the script in the 2nd file. It adds:
    \ = Screen OFF - So hold the ` and press \ to just turn off the backlight for the LCD. Useful to save battery or just cause you don't want it on
    Ctrl+\ = Same as above, just press `+Ctrl+\ with it to lock the PC and turn off the LCD.
    t = Active Window Always On Top - If you use Linux you miss being able to set a window on top at will. You can set the window back to normal by doing it again.

    Thanks for all this info. Don't know if you've looked into it but MyApp has a similar functionality to what you're looking for, but i think it triggers after 5 mins of inactivity. Just in case you want to check it out.

    Yeah, I like MyApp, except that it was getting flagged by anticheat for some reason.

    Does someone help me to create a script for the undervolt every time I turn on the pc? The values would be, -135, 45w and 50w.

    I do that with Throttlestop, theres a guide that you can google, something like "running throttlestop when the device starts" should get you where you need to go.

    They way i did it was setting up a task everytime my pc boots up, but you need to setup certain settings on the task scheduler that i cant remember right now.

    i repasted with CM Mastergel 2 days ago and ive seen some important temp degradation already, possibly due to pumping, right? started with 65-68W 100% load on just the CPU getting up to 70C now its up to 80 and a bit higher even, with balanced settings/gaming fan speed (so auto, not max)

    i have my undervolt setup on TS and i purposely extended turbo tdp to 70W and long term turbo to 60W to allow the machine to fully stretch its legs/warm up.

    AIDA64 CPU/GPU(both integrated and the gtx 1060) combined benchmark goes right up to the point of thermal throttling at 95C (up to 97C on one core) when the CPU boosts to 67W (which is about its limit ive seen on my laptop). When long term boost kicks in, at 55-60W, my clocks go way down to 3,5-3,7Ghz from 3,9 at 67W (and 3,3-3,4Ghz when the iGPU is tested aswell, which is understandable since it draws power from the same place as the CPU)

    Anyways, i think this is all a sign of pumping and im wondering if there is any way i can apply the CM Mastergel thermal paste better. I did a reasonable dot on the GPU and i did a spreaded line on the CPU. Im thinking that it could have been too much paste, and ive read somewhere here on notebookreview that the paste could dry out or oxidize or sometthing if its edges are overflowing the cpu/gpu???
    im at a loss, i mean, the thermal paste itself is very thick, tohugh not as much as ive read IC Diamond is, and the amount i put really isnt that much, maybe a little bit more than needed but ive seen so very many people say that its better to put more (since the cooler will only fit whats enough between it and the CPU/GPU anyways) than put less and have parts of the chip naked...

    just in case someone asks, i bought the paste last week and it wasnt old at all, and in my country (argentina) its impossible to find anything other than mx4 and artic 5, apart from this one tube of Mastergel that i spent 2 months looking for (and the company that imports it doesnt use nor sell anything else, ive asked...)

    edit: Also, if there isnt anything i can do without using another thermal paste, then ill try to record for a couple weeks how much temps degrade and then repaste, and record it again for a couple weeks. that way, at least we can get some knowledge out of how bearable or not it can be to have your paste pump out. i wonder if maybe temps will stabilize at a worse level but a stable one at least (maybe 80-90C on combined load with stock GPU + undervolt + 50W TDP on the i7?)
