    GL502VS fps drops, not more overheat..Maybe battery?

    Good morning. First of all excuse my low level of English.

    My model is : GL502VS-FY043T (I7-6700HQ , GTX 1070, 8GB RAM, 525 SSD + 1TB HDD )

    I just checked that my computer's battery is discharged even when connected, and that it has been an extended problem .
    I always use the laptop plugged in, so this would not be a big problem either, if it was not because I'm experiencing notorious drops of fps in intensive games, and it seems that the graphics does not deliver more than 60% of its power.
    I do not understand much about electric consumption, but if the battery that is provided is 180W and the graphics can consume about 150w + 40w of the processor,... how can supply power to the entire computer counting hard disks, ram, motherboard, etc.? I do not know if this happens to someone else or it may be due to another reason and I'm wrong, that's why I wanted to share it here.
    How can we fix it?
    Thanks a lot.

    Offtopic: I am extremely disappointed with the model GL502VS, starting with the design (a screen covering the ventilation ducts, really?) Then the overheating (undervolt, bottom drill, re-paste, instability, loss of warranty, headache ) Now the battery ... What will be next? I understood that Asus was a prestigious brand, but with this laptop they have worn it..

    180W PSU is not enough to supply CPU + GPU, i had 230W. The battery problem was ... well, the least problem.

    Please check the following thread:OFFICIAL REPLY FOR GL502VS (6TH GEN. CPU) BATTERY DISCHARGING ISSUE

    Damn ... what an odyssey ...
    I'm not even in guarantee period ... so what the **** can I do.
    And that you have a 230w battery? Internal battery or an adapter, what model did you use? Then is no a viable way to did this crap laptop work as expected?
    Luck with the procedures

    PSU = Power Supply Unit, the battery itself can hardly handle power draw from CPU + GPU.

    Well, if you ready to get your hands dirty:
    - remove heatsinks and polish heatsinks
    - replace thermal compound and thermal pads
    - order new back cover from AliExpress and drill

    Everything above is described in details in this page: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...ing-Throttling

    I already did all that, and just when I solve thermal issues undervolting, polish and drilling the bottom case waiting to make the machine work right, I find the battery issues I dont know if i can take other model psu or what.. and if these can solve my fps drops.
    Thanks, and luck. I check your post daily, and, again, sorry my bad english
