Hi everyone, i have a problem with my GX630 the gpu underclocks itself wile im playing games, even though its plugged in to the AC, this is getting very frustrating , it must be something wrong with the laptop bios the GPU has which declocks its self to save battery, something is wrong with it, or maybe is something else, like my profiles but i doubt it, there all properly configured, so with these been said i think i might have to send it into RMA, but if you guys have any suggestions please lay them down, il appreciate it.

Regards
Rafael

Try EC Reset ==> https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=112416.0
If no change sent it back to reseller to be checked, it looks that it has some heating problem or ac adapter is damaged

Il try EC reset, i cant send it to the reseller(newegg.com), my latop is 8 months old hence its not cover by resellers warranty , if i sent it to RMA its gonna be msi RMA, heating problem yes this thing heats ups up to 90 digress F, ive already talk't to a msi tech, he said it needs to be sent into RMA but i haven't send it yet lol, and its not the AC adapter , because wile im in the OS it has never stopped charging unless i remove the cord from the back of the laptop, but anyways thanks for your quick answer appreciate it.

My GX630 heats up a lot too (it will eventually reach 90 deg C at some point) and in games, turbo will automatically turn off if running after a while. I think the best way to go is get a cooling pad (I think that's what it's called). That thing should keep it at a temperature close to desktop-mode while running games. Seems like a healthy investment  :)

Hi guys! Today I solve my problem. I went to my workplace and I clean up my notebook with a compressed air "gun" ( I don't know exactly how it's named correctly). Back to my home, I was surprised to find my notebook running cool and quiet. Now my temperatures are: idle CPU-49 deg, GPU-52 deg; full CPU - 70 deg, GPU - 71 deg. Now I can play any game I want, no more hot notebook!
