ty_ger07There is a BIOS hack to add fan control in the BIOS so that you don't need to use Precision X Mobile to control the fans. Would that be something you are interested in? By hack, I mean something that is already in the BIOS, but EVGA chose to disable/hide from you by default. There is a way to make it visible so that you can set it within the BIOS for both the CPU and GPU fans speeds based on CPU and GPU temperature.
Mayora13Btw, I'll be asking several question. Sorry for asking a lot.- Is it risky to change things in Bios? I'm afraid if something happened, I might not be able to fix it.
- Do you still use PrecisionX, Precision X1 or other EVGA software?I have to use both X & X1, because is I uninstalled X1, PrecisionX wont work. Tried it before. It requires some files from X1, not sure which one.
- Do you overclock / downclock the laptop?Is there a way to go back / check the default value? I might have played around with it when I first got it.
- I really feel that there is something wrong with PrecisionX (v.1.0.8)
Mayora13One more question ty_ger07, is the battery drain ever get any fix from EVGA?
ty_ger07Nope.I have my battery removed in order to prevent it from being damaged and damaging the rest of my SC17 in the process.
Mayora13So this laptop can power from the power brick alone?
But if battery is left alone to discharge, most probably it wont charge anymore when you eventually want to use it.
And what do you mean damaging the rest of the SC17?
Mayora13My concern is that when I took it out, if the electricity fluctuates (Less than what the laptop consume), then it would turn off suddenly. Bad for laptop.It happened with my old laptop. Battery dead, so runs only on power. But every now and then, it could turn off by itself (like when overheating, but definitely not overheating).
Mayora13So are the symptoms above familiar to anyone?
