The Noob’s Ultimate Guide to the ROG how to get rid of acne scars on your face STRIX SCAR II (GL704GW)

After literally 7 weeks of banging my head against various how to get rid of acne scars on your face walls, more bsods (blue screen of death) than I’d like to admit, and going cross-eyed reading various forums/youtube comments, I wanted to compile a place where I can dump how to get rid of acne scars on your face all the info I know/have for you to read.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: I IN NO WAY CLAIM TO KNOW WHAT I AM how to get rid of acne scars on your face TALKING ABOUT IN A PROFESSIONAL SENSE. I AM A SIMPLE WOMAN- I CLICK BUTTONS, I SEE NO BSOD, I HAPPY. WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO IMPLEMENT/TWEAK IS ON YOU, AND ANY DAMAGE YOU MAY CAUSE TO THE UNIT IS how to get rid of acne scars on your face NOT MY FAULT. IMPLEMENT THINGS TO YOUR LIKING.

So me, scratching my head, googled what average gaming laptop temps were supposed to be. Now 90s isn’t going to kill your computer, but you really do want to avoid it all costs. 80s are so-so, and 70s-below are where you ideally (and note IDEALLY) want to be with intensive games.

Add a second RAM stick if you can. I HIGHLY recommend it and you are LIKELY not going how to get rid of acne scars on your face to see the FPS’s I can hit without it or sacrificing quality. If you are like me, ASUS only included 1×16 GB RAM stick in the back. This keeps the laptop in single channel mode.

This will be your holy grail for undervolting your CPU. What exactly undervolting is I am not sure but I how to get rid of acne scars on your face know it has something to do with limiting the amount how to get rid of acne scars on your face of power that is fed to the CPU without trying how to get rid of acne scars on your face to compromise performance…That way, it won’t heat up as much.

For WHATEVER reason, these cards in the rogs can not be undervolted (or so far as I have seen) as deeply as other brands. The deepest undervolt I can do on my CPU core/cache is -107 mv, but that’s unstable. Right now I’m at -100.6 mv and it’s stable for my needs.

Some people can not go even past -70 mv. I suggest starting at around -80 and increasing by -10. Follow the guidelines in videos until you find your stable how to get rid of acne scars on your face spot. Every person will be different, just make sure that CPU cache/core are undervolted the same.

I also did not do any of the AIDA stress how to get rid of acne scars on your face testing or whatever. I don’t need to stress my computer to that degree-if it can play something as intense as BF5 without how to get rid of acne scars on your face crashing, that’s all I need. If the time comes for me to do something more how to get rid of acne scars on your face intensive, I’ll figure it out then.

ALSO NOTE: if you install intel XTU, it can NOT run in parallel with throttlestop. It’s one or the other. I recommend throttlestop. If you have intel XTU installed, do a powerful uninstall to make sure you get rid how to get rid of acne scars on your face of ALL registries and files. I used iobituninstaller or whatever.

Note: there are many, many videos on how to overclock with afterburner. For some reason, it just did not work for me. I would always get the BSOD when trying to overclock. I now use this for my OSD (on screen display) to show temps, usage stats, FPS, etc.

Now, an easy temperature control fix is literally sliding down the how to get rid of acne scars on your face GPU temp target (C) to whatever you want it. For the longest time I had it set to 77-79 and could still run about 140 FPS on overwatch how to get rid of acne scars on your face and 100 FPS on BF5, without having the GPU go over 79 (since that’s where the program will start to throttle).

However, two days ago, I learned more about overclocking. Now what the heck it does, again, not exactly sure, but it has something to do with forcing the GPU how to get rid of acne scars on your face to run on higher frequencies (=more performance) on less voltage (just like the CPU), so it’s not as hot.

If you watch, and you must watch, at the very least the video I posted above with how to get rid of acne scars on your face the overclocking with MSI afterburner, you will see the process in which you use GPU-Z to find the max voltage draw of your card. My VDDC was about 1 V. I took the node right around 900mv and pushed it how to get rid of acne scars on your face up to 1903. All the nodes following it (to the right) were then also put at 1903, forming a straight line. I did not mess with the nodes to the left how to get rid of acne scars on your face of the 900mv node. Every GPU is different, some can be boosted to 2100, some can be boosted to 1700. So far, mine is working at 1903. I may push higher later, but I have found the performance I am looking for.

Make sure after you create the profile you press save, then create a new profile (press the little + arrow at the left, name it, and press save). GPU tweak is iffy with profiles, so if you restart your computer you may lose it. I’d memorize that high 1903 (for me) value, and what node you set it at (900 for me), so you can re-create it.

Once you don’t crash, play intensive games and see if you get more BSOD’s or if your game crashes. I had several moments last night where overwatch would crash how to get rid of acne scars on your face or the screen would freeze because the GPU wasn’t getting enough power for the frequency I wanted it how to get rid of acne scars on your face at.

So friends, arm yourselves with knowledge and have at it. It’s a painful process but it is doable. I wish I had this all in one place when how to get rid of acne scars on your face I started 7 weeks ago. Again, I could be wrong in many areas, and if you have any corrections/suggestions PLEASE share.

Please note that these values are what worked for me. I think I may have been blessed with a rig how to get rid of acne scars on your face that had a better thermal paste application than others, or being able to undervolt, so your results may not be the same. But I imagine in doing all of this, you should see something way better than stock.
