  1. I'm on Here's a link to my log from last night.

    Excellent I will check this out.
  3. To help others who may not want to mess with the direct file, here's a quick screenshot of the main part of graphics test 1, which I think shows this card severely underclocked and possibly underfed in terms of voltage. For reference, I'm the QHD+ 512GB model, no OC, no throttlestop, nvidia 375.70 driver, all power plans set to maximum, fans set to cool mode.

    So this is no OC at all correct?

    How do I access / create this file? I would like to try this after work on mine. Looking at my Firestrike result that I posted back a couple pages, my GPU clock was 1873mhz. Even assuming that was my peak clock, your card's hitting 1607mhz peak. We are both at stock settings, this doesn't make sense to me. Unless it is a driver issue and the stock Razer one is more stable? I'm so curious to see my card's performance over the course of the test.

  6. No OC at all.

    This was created using Nvidia Inspector It has options for creating a CSV and turning on various sensor monitoring. I set it up, turned it on, and then ran Fire Strike.

  7. Just went back to look at your original post with your Fire Strike score. I would be totally content if mine would have scored almost anything above 9k straight out of the box. The fact that it's nowhere close and that its clock seems way below others just baffles me.
  8. I'm not sure how relevant this would be to what's in the Blade, but the following article did a pretty extensive review of the 1060 Founders' Edition compared to an Asus OC variant. For the FE, seems like idle voltage should be around 625mV, whereas mine seems to sit around 550mV when idle, but the big difference seems to be in boost voltage. They're reporting boost voltage at 1060mV, and I never break 900mV, averaging around 840-850mV. On a parallel note, boost clock would be in line with JLP209's 1873Mhz, averaging 1790-1890 in their tests. I never break even 1650Mhz for graphics test 1 of Fire Strike...

    It would take a VBIOS flash to unlock/increase the voltage, of course, it MUST be official and come from Razer.
  10. Yep, I'm just adding to the research pile. I figure it'll help others and possibly Razer in doing something about it.

    Doing a Vbios patch is so simple it hurts, but i wont risk bricking a 2 days old system which should not need oc'ing. Hell im so mad.

    If I did not like the machine I wouldnt be wasting my time doing all this. Just give us what we paid for.

  13. This is exactly my sentiments. I LOVE everything else about this machine. It feels amazingly well built. It looks stunning. That said, I won't settle for getting less performance out of it.

    Ok after MUCH experimenting... here it goes:

    188 on the clock
    750 on the memory

  15. If it's such a simple thing for Razer to patch, it should only be a matter of time before we get an official fix. At least, that's how it should be, right?

    At any rate, the machine is superb in every other aspect, and this seems to be a software issue rather than hardware. That's a bit comforting, in a way.

    That's a fantastic result.
    Edit: What do you mean by "experimenting"? Experimenting with the overclock values? Or is there something else you're doing?
  16. What are your temps running there? Also, I'd love to hear your experience gaming for a prolonged period at those levels.

    So the max temp I reached is 76 after hours of bench after bench after bench. No real gaming just yet.
    By experimenting I meant trying different clock/memory combinations.

    I started until the clock was at max, then added memory little by little until it did not improve anymore. Also q good paramerer y that if you set the memory to be 800 and the max read is x799, then you can go down. I am using 750+ and the read is 4752.

    All stable, havent seen an artifact yet. At all.

    Any suggestiins from experienced overclockers?

    For what it's worth I am running +165 on the clock and +400 on the memory and when I run Firestrike both my CPU and GPU are about 71-72 degrees max for each, only prolonged gaming I have had a chance to do so far on my unit is CS which I played for 2-3 hours last night and highest temps were 75 and 74 for CPU and GPU respectivley (One core hit 77 degrees according to hwinfo).

    Edit: I am only running a few, maybe 3 tests back to back it's not like I am spending hours running the test over and over again.

    I will look into spending some time in Skyrim SE and GTA V, even if it's just opening and getting in the game and letting them run for an hour or so while I do other things. I spent maybe a total of 30 minutes last night in Skyrim (loaded the game up and had to go AFK during the opening cutscene/character creation. When I got back my temps were low, 72 max for cpu and 71 for GPU. Will let it run more today later but so far everything been great for me in terms of thermals. I won't be spending 5+ hours in various games like I might on my desktop but an hour here, an hour there at times so for how I plan on using it I have had 0 issues.
  19. I really do think I just lost the lottery on my Blade. I'm hoping Razer will reach back out soon so I can go for round two.

    Just wanted to reach out to people in this thread, is the ability to turn off the Snake logo on the lid of the screen removed in this model Blade? I posted on Reddit and some other users shared screenshots of what their synapse looks like from the Stealth or previous Blade and in synapse under the brightness option there was an option to disable the lid logo which I do no seem to see on my Blade anywhere. I got a popup from synapse the other day that there was an update available for it and I updated it so afaik I am on the most up to date version. Just curious if any of you have been able to shut it off or if it's just running all the time now,
