    Damn that's a nice undervolt! If it holds you won the lottery! XD

    I was running at -.150v but was experiencing some strange system hangs and the occasional bsod while playing Overwatch. Dialed it back to -.130 and haven't had the problem since. Eventually I will take the time to dial in exactly how far I can push it. I'm hoping I can push at least -.140 but we'll see.

    It lasted a little over 32 hours and then during an extended XCOM 2 session, it shat the bed bigtime. Back to -0.150v.

    Vents added on bottom | -.130 UV 6700HQ | Custom 1070 boost curve

    Hey guys, providing screenshots with the following items completed.

    1. Addition of square inch vent under each fan.... Check
    2. Undervolt CPU v.130.... Check
    3. Custom 1070 boost curve (doesn't downclock in gaming).... Check
    4. Custom fan speeds and curve, to prevent "Jet Mode".... Check
    5. NO EXTERNAL ASSISTANCE (No Opolar or lap cooler, etc.).... Check, Check and CHECK!
    6. Successful Run without throttling Furmark 20+ minutes.... Check

    Previously Furmark would throttle with CPU & GPU throttling thermal points... 88C GPU and 92 CPU. Not anymore

    I can also play Witcher 3 with all options at max and DSR x4 + 100% smooth (GSYNC 60fps / fluctuates no lower than 59fps 'boost curve on 1070 hindered by voltage limitations') at 70-72 GPU & 69-73 CPU over a 1 hour and 20 minute session (Pretty but boring game IMO).

    3dMark FireStrike score is only 13100 (meh), TimeSPY 4180 (t.t but meh).

    ASUS, why no air intake for the fans? Seriously, this is a sleeper portable and you intentionally crippled this system. I am not blaming anyone as there was obviously reasoning. I just would like to know what that reasoning was.

    just curious, what's a sleeper portable?

    Apologies, mixing cartalk. XD. (Sleeper is a system you wouldn't expect to do well. In this case, the laptop would throttle performance based on it's size and thermal profile.)

    I was attempting to describe, that when this was released, it would have been the most potent portable at it's price bracket if they hadn't restricted airflow to the fans. It would have been the go to for its price range instead of being out-shined by most of the competition.

    When I purchased this laptop 6 months ago, Amazon Warehouse for $1,080 with zero issues, I was almost going to return based on what I had heard. But considering at the time, it was retailing USD 1699.99. Well, I just couldn't let the deal go. It was a one of those purchases that was a great price, but for some reason you just feel remorseful, ie. Performance really isn't that good compared to the competition..

    I kinda thought that's what you meant by sleeper and I agree. On top of the airflow issue, the thunderbolt3 JHL6240 is a pretty big disappointment too. I'd like to see a pic of the square vents you fashioned, if possible.

    Now to be fair they are not one inch squares. They are a hack-job but effective and safe none the less. I guess total it would be 2.5-3.5 square inch total across both fans.

    There are additional risers by the fans to ensure adequate airflow. Two at the bottom to keep level.

    I play wow all the bells and whistles EXCEPT 7 on view distance and ultra shadows and whatever one setting below max SSAO at 60 FPS everywhere on GSYNC. 25% on both fans max.

    This machine is a dream now. Oh and to answer your idle question...

    Thanks, hey, if it works, it works.

    With regards to the idle fan speed and temperature; I found Notebook Fan Control does not properly read fan speeds from the ASUS EC. It will report 0% fan speed when in fact the fans are spinning at approximately 1800-2000 rpm. I do not believe the fans in these laptops spin down to 0 as others have stated. If I run NBFC and use the GL702VM profile, it will report 0% fan speed when idle while the ASUS Gaming Center reports around 1800 RPM. Is 53C your idle temperature?
