I was uncertain as to which category to list this post under

Laptop: MSI GS65 Stealth Thin
Specs: i7 8750H, GTX 1070 Max-Q, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD

I am quite happy with the laptop overall though it does turn into a nuclear space heater when under load. Custom fan setting and the 'Cool Boost' helps a lot but I am still wanting to under-volt to save on power consumption and I have seen users reducing temperatures by about five degrees give or take.

While under-volting seems rather straight forward, I have never done this before and every search result on how to under-volt gives back a different opinion while I'm looking for a more definitive guide. I know that I need the Intel software for the CPU (though I am uncertain for the GPU) and I also need a stress and stability testing program.

I would prefer a step by step guide yet any advice, tips, recommendations and or tricks that can be offered in liu of a guide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Lilith
