Hey everyone. I have seen where others were able to get 160 to 170 watts when doing CPU only programs like Cinebench R23. Mine seems to be limited to 120/125 watts max whether in hybrid or discrete modes on extreme performance in either Auto or Cooler Boost with max fans. Was there a recent update that limited the amount of wattage going to the CPU or something that needs to be changed in the BIOS or in MSI Center to unlock more potential?
