  1. You made me worried.... I did not consider the dangers at all tbh, I was more worried about the laptop than safety! I have two more days at work before I can remove the battery, guess I'm throwing the damn thing..
  2. Hello, I think it's obvious at this stage that my battery needs a replacement. But I wanted to discuss it here to hear your experiences and see if I can avoid damaging the battery like this again. So I've had my Blade 15 Advanced Model 2018 for 2 years now, it's been an absolute beast, gaming and work, home theater laptop, renderer, mf been put to work. Mid its lifecycle, it began to run naturally hot, I remember it for the first year running the CPU and GPU at temps in the low 40's Celsius at idle. And those temps has risen up gradually over time. Nowadays it runs high 60's-mid
  3. wait, so is it the screen itself, like the display flickering? or is there an external LED somehow on the side of the bezels of the display? I'm confused... if it's the former, you may just have a faulty screen that's having a rough time. if it's an external LED, then really you don't have a problem.. also, check the magnets on the left and right sides of the palm rests of the laptop, left and right of the trackpad. there should be magnets in the chassis of the laptop, get any magnet, and play around with it on either side of the rest pads, the display should completely turn off, *IF* yo
  4. things you can check, seeing if you have some kind of bottleneck. Use any software (or the task manager) to check the utilization of your GPU, and the CPU. The GPU *should* be at %100. I'm not really sure how demanding your game is when it comes to CPU, and I'm not familiar with the 9300H to be specific. But in any case, for starters, if the GPU isn't at %100, you have some sort of bottleneck that's causing it. Second thought, how is the 50-70 fps? is it buttery smooth? or is it stuttery? choppy? do you feel some sort of input lag, or does it play completely normally? If it's
  5. Yes! Just sitting on desktop, with nothing open, with Instant Replay off, and absolutely zero GPU load, it would start, say, from 30C, keep climbing until the 75C, and stays there! The voltages on the GPU core is 725mV while I'm writing this, nothing else open, the 725mV seems to be %75 of the way (based on the little speedometer graph), and in game it goes to like 1200mV. But, as the driver shows, it never goes below 725mV. The clock speeds are normal while idling (I suppose), they are very low, 50-150MHz. But the weird part about clock speeds, is the max boost, in every 5700 XT review I've
  6. Yeah.. after I looked into BIOS updates, seems like it's something you wouldn't normally do as in Motherboard BIOS flashing, only in critical cases as you mentioned, where there's a major shitshow that you gotta fix or smthn. Apart from that, yes, I just started the PC, started room temps, dead cool, low 20C, and the fan profile is active and adjusted, the fans kick at 35% on 40C, and here, I'm typing this, and the temps are still climbing, it's 56C now.
  7. That is very true, I'm hopeful only because they show they've actually been working on them, things have been generally getting better. With that said, I was just playing fortnite, and the card was silent, I put the Tuning settings for the card on Automatic, under automatic you can choose 'Underclock', 'Overclock', 'blabla', 'bla'. And there is 'Default', which is the natural default setting. I left it on that, and played for 40 minutes, opened MSI Afterburner, it was 93C..... I shut down the game, restarted the PC, and maxed the fans, then left the fans to idle, after 3mins of full RPM. No
  8. I never really tried that, I'm always at the latest drivers, and they really have resolving a lot of the annoying issues.. apart from mine apparently lol
  9. Hey bruverino, thank you your suggestion, I have a couple things to reply to: I've always used only one card, the second was always plugged in, but no Crossfire, never, besides testing, so the second card is plugged in, and its main use was its HDMI port, to take in the AVR. Also mostly these days, to avoid these issues, I disable my secondary displays when I game, all of them, to eliminate issues, but the profile reset and heat crashes still happen here. I also lived back in the day like 3-4 months with only one card plugged in, I don't exactly remember the details, but I remember the
  10. Hello, good day, so I've had my Vega 64 since launch, and it's been playing games like a beast ever since. I've had countless problems with it, I think I faced every GPU problem (especially software related) with this card, it gave me nightmares, but regardless tho, when it worked, it worked really good. One thing I want to note before going on onto my problem, I gotta say that, I have tried and worked around most of the problems I've had with the cards (I have 2), things like: slightest overclock on the CPU causes instability in any game, my AVR setup with the home theater and PC was a p
  11. I'm not sure I understand your curiosity, but for me, monitoring all kinds of stuff going on in my PC, gives me an insight and understanding on how everything works and what's best for optimizing my settings, like fan curves for example. One very important, and obvious usage for GPU % utilization, is to see if you're being bottlenecked or not, the other day my friend's laptop was overheating, and throttling, pretty normal for laptops, I wanted to examine what was causing more heat, the GPU or the CPU on the laptop, knowing that they both use the same heatsink, it's important to balance them
  12. Ah perfect, two questions.. actually 3. How many cores does this app support? Does it support AMD Ryzen CPUs? (I doubt it..) And I need that down/up (supposedly network speeds), those are a fkn life saver! Thanks for the tips brother!
  13. I love the simplicity of the old RealTemp 3.70, CPU temperature monitoring app. But that mf is old as hugh now, so what's another app, that does its functionality, and most importantly, has the ability to show temp as a lil number in the taskbar icons area.
  14. Jesus christ.. every single warranty there could be has definitely run out for my build. What a massive shit-show this is.. is the 8th gen intel cpu's affected by this, too?
