    OK i read more and i understand it now :) thanks
    And i am running bios 1.05 , but i know there is for sure laptops with 1.06 and even 1.07 , maybe they change something about power limit there? DId you know?
    P.S.2
    Okkkk new develope ;) i switch to Game Mode on Synapse and its game changer ! I thinked that Game mode boost only GPU but lol
    So... in balance mode i get 45W max power limit for the cpu but now....in Game mode and ThrottleStop setting the power limit and undervolt i can get 70W for the cpu , i manualy put 70W for the limit and it get 70W , now i get Cinebench 15 - 1170 pts and Cinebench 20 - 2700 pst
    But yeah temp get a lot hotter , the cpu cant stay all the time 3.9 too but its much better in benchmark :) now the question is what is the safe W for the cpu if i use Game Mode ? 55 ? 60? for normal gaming if needet Game mode.
    Thanks

    Good, enjoy the benchmarks:smile_:
    For gaming it depends on the titles, Ubisoft cpu hunger titles I wouldn’t recommend since you may run the cpu on hot 90ish areas or even spiking to 100, it’ll be bad for your Blade longevity. Unless you don’t care about it it’s fine:smile_:
    Yes there’re 1.06 and 1.07 out there i don’t think there’s power limit difference from those two, I’m not quite sure since I’m still on 1.05 the one that stated on Blade support page and i won’t update if there’s no issue with the unit. Those are bios for resolving some issues from support or came with some new units apparently or units that came back from repair some dude I think uploaded it somewhere like on Reddit.

    Yeah i am in the same boat for the bios as you. If i dont have problems with 1.05 i will not update.
    I am not planing to use more power on cpu for now, just want to see why my bench result are a lot lower then another laptops with same cpu but i finally get it :) thanks
    I am using for browsing the net etc atm undervoting + no turbo setting to max 2200mhz and for games undervolt + 35x multiplier for all cores.

    @Joikansai Hey again :) i said that i will not update the bios of i had no problem on the laptop but actually i have coil whine , i think its not from the GPU because it there when i am doing noting and nvidia gpu no working, its not very loud but if i am on quiet room and only browsing the net i can hear it. So i found that some peope with coil whine fix this after the bios update , but i thinkg most of them are with 2016 stealth model , not blade 18-19.
    So i am start to think to try bios update maybeeee there is little chance to fix the coil whine ? What do you think?
    @Firebat246 same question :) thanks

    I’m not quite sure about what improvement comes with bios 1.06 and 1.07 since it doesn’t state anything in official website, when I’m not wrong some dude in Reddit saying it for addressing webcam issues. Since I don’t have coil whine or webcam issues I’m good. Note there’s several coil whine type some are annoying and some are not, for example in my case i can bring (make it louder and noticeable) coil whine, by using gaming mode, Fans auto, and connecting with External Monitor (means you’re using dgpu (hdmi and DP connected directly to dgpu) with max cpu tdp on idle where fans are inactive, so buzzing coils whine noticeable, especially in quite room...but who use gaming mode on idle or light works lol), and there’s also annoying coil whine like Morse code...kind of.
    Bios update may also address coil whine, not quite sure on 2018 model but on stealth 2019, apparently it fixed or reduced the coil whine.
    Fore more details maybe you should contact support, provide them your coil whine video and ask if bios update can address it, FYI apparently 1.06 Bios and 1.07 can be provided by support as well. Note as well once you update the bios you can’t revert to previous Bios version.

    Mine is not GPU connected , i hear the whine in idle undervolt,no turbo :) its not monotone , its changes and when move mouse also changes ,i am not sure it is CPU connected or just some coil on the motherboard....yeah mostly i am with headphones or tv working around and i dont hear the whine, but its a little tempting to try update the bios...but same time i am scared :D There is post on reddit that some ask for this and support ask him to connect for the bios update , i write there , and support also contact me , maybe they will send mi link to the new bios , but i am not updating for now...maybe i will wait someone with Blade 2018-19 to confirm its helped... :D
