  1. I did undervolt my system the way you are describing. I would lower the voltage, run a ten minute stress test and start the process again. What I am really curious about is why did the system pass a ten minute stress test at .180V but crashed at the same power offset after an hour or so of usage. I believe that the reason why system crashes at .150V when left idle for extended amounts of time is because some kind of power management kicks in and essentially cuts off all the power leading to a crash.
  2. So I recently bought the 2019 G7 model with RTX 2060. Despite putting in more powerful hardware than the 2018 model, those geniuses at Dell made the chassis smaller; so the heat output is massive. So, I decided to undervolted my CPU to reduce temps, which worked wonders. I used the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility to perform the undervolting. I reduced the power to .180V and ran a stress test for about 10 minutes and nothing happened. But here's the weird part, my system would automatically crash as I am using it after about an hour or so of using it. So, this time I reduced the power to .150V and ran a stress test for around 4 hours and nothing happened. I can use my system for hours and nothing would go wrong, but as soon as I leave my system ideal and come back, I would find that the system has already crashed, restarted and the utility program has changed my setting to default telling me that the system crashed. Can you guys help me figure out what the heck is going on?
  3. I apologize for the late reply, but thanks a lot for taking the time to give a long and concise answer. It's people like you who makes this community so great. Cheers!
  4. So, yesterday, I bought the Dell G7 laptop with RTX 2060 6 GB DDRM and Intel I7-9750H. I set up the laptop, deleted Mcafee and installed HWmoniter and all of a sudden my fans went wild. They went silent in about a minute but would start up again randomly. I looked at my temps and the max value for my CPU was 91 C. FREAKING 91. So I thought maybe I should run a demanding game to see how the machine performs. I installed and opened GTA V. The first weird thing I noticed was that the movement of my curser wasn't smooth. I went to the settings and the game had set its settings to the lowest possible so I thought that maybe it hadn't recognized my GPU so I restarted the game and everything looked fine in the settings. I changed some settings and ran about 3 benchmarks, minimized the game, checked my CPU temps and the highs were in FREAKING 90s. I mean, what the heck? Surprisingly, even with such high temps, the benchmarks showed consistent 60 FPS with occasional dips to mid-50s. I shut down the game and downloaded Cinebench. I ran five stress tests in a row and the temps start out with low 90's but soon drop to low 80's. My average score was 2725 pts. So, what do you guys think? I only have around 14 days to return it so I'd like to find out if there are any issues as soon as possible. I really love this machine and saved for a long time to be able to afford it. I wouldn't want all that to go to waste.

  6. Thanks for the reply. As for you comment, that's what everyone keeps telling me. I curious as to how long will my laptop run if It hovers around those temps for 3 to 4 hours per day?
  7. Thanks for the reply. I thought about investing in one, but after reading a bunch of reviews It seems that the temp drops are only around 2 to 5 degrees. As for your question, I usually keep multiple chrome tabs opened up while programming because I get stuck A LOT.
  8. Thanks for reply. But, I was more concerned with running my laptop on these temps for long periods of time.
  9. Hey guys, I am having a lot of trouble with managing heat in my HP pavilion laptop. I mean, the thermals only go up while I am gaming and programming, but they do up and they go up fast, forcing me to stop whatever I am doing in the moment. I was thinking of using a gel ice pack and covering it up in a poly bag and placing it under my laptop. I know that it sounds like a dumb idea, but I would really appreciate some advice before I do some real damage to my laptop. Specs: Intel i7 8th gen 6 cores Nvidia GeForce Mx 150 4Gb 12 Gb ram Note: My hard drive stays relatively cool, and my CPU only goes above 80 when I am doing some heavy programming. The biggest problem is with the GPU, even when it's not running at 90% or above, the temps hover around 80. So, any advice would be appreciated.
  10. Yeah, the Nvidia overlay is not opening. However, it's much better now. The jagged lines a hardly noticeable now. I think, it was the antialising-mode setting.  Thanks a lot man. Appreciate it. F*CK it! it's still the same. I ran the benchmark tool and for some reason the game can't detect the video card.

  12. Everytime, I take the screenshot of the game it comes as blank, unlike any other application on the computer. Anyway, here are some other screenshots of my settings.
  13. No, I read it. But apparently NVIDIA Multiframe Anti aliasing is only requires GTX 900 series or above. Because, I made an exception for GTA IV application in the control panel of Nvidia. The application now has FXAA on, Antialiasing-setting is at 8x, Antialiasing-transparency is at 8x, and MFAA is on too. Yet, the problem persists. So, any ideas?
  14. Hey, thanks for the idea but I've tried that. Do you know, or anybody for that matter, how I can force anti aliasing? Probably, change some settings in Nvidia control panel or something? anything?
