By the way, how do I confirm the battery capacity? Battery report shows no numbers:

Installed batteries
Information about each currently installed battery
BATTERY 1
NAME DELL 5XJ2872
MANUFACTURER LGC-LGC8.33
SERIAL NUMBER 664
CHEMISTRY LION
DESIGN CAPACITY mWh
FULL CHARGE CAPACITY mWh

I repasted the laptop with two types of thermal paste, I applied thermal pads on the VRMs, but I'm not able to remove thermal throttling from the GPU.
It still reaches 78 degrees and then the clockspeed drops.

It's better then it was, but I would have like to achieve better temps.

How did you manage do reach better temps?

How'd the laptop running? You love it?

Here's a quick update on my 9560. I complained to Dell about high temps on one core, and they sent me a new motherboard and cooling. Temperatures dropped like 20 centigrades under load. Now running with - 145 mV on CPU and i - 180 mV on iGPU. Probably got a better pasting job.

No longer any throttling issues from the CPU. Temps around 69 under heavy load.

Using Afterburner for OC on the GPU for now, even though Cakewalk tried to talk me out of it., I have seen freaky numbers on the GPU bus, like 12362472724 and such, but that must be just a software/measuring bug?

Anyway, I seemed to reach some kind of wall with voltages and power limit with core at +150 and mem at + 200. Weirdly no high GPU temps, but Afterburner monitor shows power and voltage limits all over the place. Running at core +205 and mem +407 now. Stable for for benchmarking and gaming, but the firestrike score is only like 50 more than with the previous mentioned. Could it be that the power limitations makes this overclock not working? Strange that it doesn't crash or get hot at all. Never reached 78 C on the GPU and I can't see any throttling as I did when the prevoius CPU heated everything to 90 C.

Here's the latest Firestrike score:

How can you adjust the Nvidia display settings on these? It says they're not available. Everything is up to date 100%. It's just running on the iGPU

What a finicky little device! Got it sorted out lol.

Then there's the temps, woah. Quite a hottie 😃 The repaste seems to have cured it substantially.

Laptop is holding up good so far. Updated xtu to the new version and a few driver updates. Temps are OK. Not the absolutely best but that's because of the limits I'm putting on the chips with 0 throttling and really pushing the gpu overclock.
Laptop performs great in bf1 and I have 0 complaints.

Vrm temps usually stay under 70c in this summer which is great. I may see after this most recent nvidia driver update if I can overclock anymore. I haven't really pushed the gpu core to the absolute limit yet...

Just a quick update...

For those of you that use msi afterburner. There's a new function that is a voltage and clock chart. It's ctrl + F to get to it. This amazing chart somehow allows me to undervolt the gtx 1050 gpu!!!! Right now I'm stable at 0.981v at 1798mhz. Stock voltage is around 1.050-1.075v. I'm not sure this will work on other gpus but I found this to be amazing for temps. I now hang around 65-70c while gaming which is great!!!

Nice thanks I'll try that!
