Solution: Open Power Options either by clicking the icon in the All Control Panel Options menu or by double-clicking the Windows battery icon in your system tray.
Select Change plan settings next to the power plan you are using (balanced, power saver, etc).
Select Change advanced power settings
And change the max cpu power output to 85 instead of 100. After several tests my cpu now stays well withen the range of 65-70c and the same for gpu which is very solid for a laptop. Dont think of this as a loss in fps cause after testing I actually gained fps because my cpu no longer throttles due to high temps.
Its safe to say this cpu way more then out matches this gpu and by lowering its max power output you really arent restraining anything other then perhaps certain times while playing and having too much going on in game like perhaps starcraft and even then you should be well in the range of 60 fps with this beast. Also I noticed the screen was a little to bright for my eyes and lowered it down to less then 50% with it still being a little too bright and noticed another 2c drop in temp hope this helps!:)
Update: read into BIOS update 300 which doesn't appear to come stock maxes out fan speed at around 75c keeping temps much cooler. Using it myself with max power enabled, this tip is helpful if you you refuse to to avoid lowering performance at all costs.
I'd post a link to the update but can't seem to post links here.
Good visuals, runs fine without getting too hot, even when playing high-GPU-use games.
Does everything a laptop should do, basically.
The black cover shows fingerprints really easily
Windows 10 is annoying, and takes a while to customize to not be so annoying
Yeah, that's about it. I like it, and it works for me.
Pros: Along with the Gaming laptops of the past it's powerful. I increased the SSD to a Samsung EVO 512. I'm considering doubling the memory. All of the "power train" if you will, is solid and powerful.
Cons: Screen bleeding on the sides with a black screen.
BIGGEST CON: The front left speaker sounds blown after a year. I've literally never had anything loud on this computer, almost always have it on mute. It has been adult owned and in a fixed location (never transported, put in a bag, moved around.) I'm thinking it was just one of the things they had to go super cheap on in order to keep the price manageable with the power players in this rig.
In render time, you can hear the fans but they're not like super loud. In Gaming, you may have to have a have a fan so you can feel comfortable playing for long periods. But i use it for design mostly. (AfterEffects, Premiere, C4D).
