    That is the thing about SMART errors, they do tend to come out of nowhere in a "fine one day and not the next" fashion as the drive reaches the threshold for a problem. You might seen some slowing...

    I have a G752VT and installed the creator's update. I had two issues that were easy fixes. The first issue was that the screen brightness was stuck at 100%, which I fixed by reinstalling my nvidia...

    Unfortunately not. You can change the reference clock from 100MHz to 99.5MHz, but that is about it. And you can limit the CPU to a flat 2.5GHz through power plan settings, but you cannot change the...

    The biggest difference between the two isn't going to be in their specs, but in their form factor. Assuming that you compare the 17.3" GL702 with the G752, you are going to find that the GL702 is...

    While you can't overclock it, you can undervolt the 6700hq pretty easily, and by pretty far amounts. You can also underclock it using XTU by a whopping 0.5% by decreasing the reference clock to 99.5...

    Everki makes a variety of messenger bags that fit up to an 18.4" laptop. I cannot find the exact one I have on Amazon, but both my G74SX and G752VT fit in it just fine.

    Googling the CPU fan part number brought up several options to purchase the fan. I'd recommend Amazon due to their A to Z guarantee.
