    or is the only solution if i were to get this laptop undervolting? i wouldn't want it to die on me within a year
    I assume you're talking about the GL702VM. If yes, there was an improvement. The fps drops are completely gone and without any tweaking the laptop runs in the mid 80's.

    However, if you use some undervolting and disable turbo when gaming you can further improve your temps down to the mid 70's.

    I'm having occasional issues with undervolting now. I originally set the core voltage offset to -120 mV, which was the voltage at which performance wouldn't drop during benchmark tests. However, I lowered it to -110 mV when later it BSOD'd while playing Doom.

    Now I'm having a problem where the screen turns black on startup/waking up from sleep every once in a while, and I have to manually shut down and restart the computer—at which point, it works perfectly fine. After I restart my computer, if I open Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, it says "The application quit unexpectedly" and shows that my core voltage offset has been reset to 0 mV.

    I've undervolted to -100 mV, but this just happened again. Should I keep raising the voltage until this stops happening, or could something else be causing this?

    Try running without an undervolt at all. See if the issue persists.

    Have you made any other changes to your system since this started happening?

    There is a bios update tool that can be found in the downloads section of the laptops support page.

    A bit further down, under 'bios utilities' is the tool WinFlash. It should walk you through it, though there are videos and walkthroughs found online if you need them.

    Also make sure you are downloading the right bios. If you have the 702VMK you don't want to install 702VM bios, and vice versa. It is imperative that you install the bios for your exact system. Otherwise you might end up with a really expensive paper weight.

    Thanks a ton for the clarification! All the best to you!

    It would be hard to confirm if the issue persists without undervolt, since this only happens very rarely on startup.

    I have undervolted my GPU as far as I am comfortable with, so it could be an issue with the GPU rather than the CPU; maybe the voltage offset automatically resetting itself has something to do with me manually shutting it down after it froze when booting up.
