    There are some images that have gone offline, and it would be nice to be able to reupload those and fix it. Can't do that without editing the top post though.

    Hi there,
    I wonder if my experience is something worth sharing as I was also suffering from the 20/25W power throttling after installing the EC update but no more...after almost giving up on any chance of solving the issue having read your post, I decided to try and install the bios v1.02 file on the Razer site as apparently my bios is v1.01.

    After the installation hung at close to completion, I managed to get out and since then I have been able to achieve 40W power for up to 30secs whether it is on creator/balanced mode. Is this rather unique (perhaps I just stripped back an update and returned to an original state?) or has there been some change since you last updated this post?!

    Thanks for sharing, jason. That's interesting! I'd be a little scared to intentionally cut off an update as essential as the BIOS. You could do some serious damage if you messed those up. But it sounds like your result may have been unintentionally awesome?

    I'm curious what your temperatures are like, what clock speeds you're achieving at that wattage, etc. And I wonder if anyone who knows more about BIOS and power management could weigh in on this, too.

    Yeah I was a little worried however I suspect the fact that I was always in Windows throughout the successful portion of the update helped to mitigate any consequence.

    As for the temp, when running cinebench multicore, it will reach 75C after 10-15 sec @3.9GHz and 39W before boosting to 40W and 4.1GHz which will then max the temp to 80ishC before dropping back to 25W and the usual 65ishC. All very respectable still although I feel I suspect the temps would be 5-10C higher were the system allowed to stabilize at 40W and 4.1GHz for longer.

    P.s. that is all with a -100mV undervolt

    If you don’t see this yet hidden intel new feature on Stealth 2019 1080p.

    Some updates that I'm not able to include in the original post due to word limit constraints...

    A possible fix for issues with MX150 drivers needing to be reinstalled after eGPU use:

    Interesting info about thermal throttling while on battery power, and how to overcome it:

    Hi, I have done the BIOS and EC Firmware Updates to solve the coil whine problem, but then my laptop is frequently disconnecting to the wifi. I am not sure if that is the update problem or my wifi problem, or maybe just a problem of this unit, but if there is anything you know to help me I will appreciate it.

    With this problem, I updated the intel wifi driver but still the same, my model is the graphic one, 1080p with mx150.

    That's strange. I didn't have any WiFi issues after updating BIOS and EC. I'd suggest trying to troubleshoot the WiFi some more, unless others chime in and have noticed a similar problem.

    Issues With Unresponsive Touchpads

    Some new Stealth owners have reported issues with the touchpad intermittently becoming unresponsive. One user noticed that the default sensitivity for the touchpad in Windows was "Medium Sensitivity". A possible fix is to increase the touchpad sensitivity setting to "high sensitivity" or "most sensitive".

    Hi, I solved the wifi problem, it was my router. But today I came with another problem TuT.

    I temporarily used the touchpad, and it suddenly didn't work, it works in some little area on the touchpad, but overall useless, I don't know how to fix it, I only restarted my computer.

    I was by default with high sensitivity, and I changed to most sensitive but it did not work.

    That does sound like a faulty touchpad - if you boot into a live Linux distro, does the entire surface work, or just the same small patch?

    Make sure that you go over the simple stuff first-

    • Restart the laptop.
    • Make sure that you haven't accidentally toggled off the touchpad in Synapse
    • Make sure that you haven't accidentally toggled off the touchpad in Windows touchpad settings.
    • Look at Device Manager, and make sure that your Touchpad isn't disabled, and/or that it has drivers installed.

    yes, I did all those and still the same, I going to send it back to razer service center to fix it.

    Did you have any trouble taking the Bottom panel off? I'm partway through upgrading the ssd but can't workout why the bottom panel is stuck. I have all the screws out, were there any clips on this model? is there a trick to it? e.g pull in some direction?
    This is a great guide by the way.

    There aren't any extra clips, but there's a thermal pad on the SSD that can stick to the back plate sometimes. It's a snug fit, and it's easy to overlook one or two of the screws near the screen hinge.

    Just be gentle and once you get one end of the backplate up, peek underneath as you ease it off to make sure nothing is stuck to it.

    Ah yes thanks I thought it could be some thermal stickiness. I'll be gentle. It's good to know there aren't clips.

    Thanks for your help
     
  19. Is it possible that you can re-upload some of the images from your thread, particularly the fan curve for your GPU undervolt?

    Thanks so much :) Athy

    It's not possible for me to edit that original post anymore, but one day I'll send some images to someone who can! For now there's a good basic video on GPU undervolting here and a more technical one here. Looking at how they manipulate their curves should be helpful!

    Also, hot tip some people aren't aware of: You can drag the whole curve up at once by holding shift and dragging.
