[INFO] Bios 1.19 on G3-572 and temps

My low use temps are pretty much like:

Low use (connected to external monitor):
CPU - 40-45
GPU - 37-42
Low use = watching YouTube videos, browsing this forum and such.

This is without any fans or laptop cooler. But I do have ThrottleStop on.

Earlier, same settings, temps were like CPU 40-50 and GPU 40-45.

Looks like something got updated in the bios that is lowering temps to good extent.
By the way, i pushed in version 1.19 released on Aug 10th (not 1.15 released on Aug 15th).

    Captured the idle temperatures for you (idle, as in very little activity included, inclusive of this forum, taking screenshot of predator sense, predator sense itself and such).

    Ive heard it does lower temps a good 3-4 C on average but Ive heard mixed reviews on fps drops/gains.

    Have you experienced either?

    FPS... I haven't noticed any difference. My monitor is 60 Hz and so my FPS is limited to 60 max (with/without vsync).

    Temp drops... certainly can see the difference, esp when on low loads (below temp... laptop woken from hibernate, on firefox typing this reply; steam open).
    It tends to settle around 40-45 and 38-42 levels for CPU and GPU.
    These are without using any external aids for cooling.

    Below is the screenshot after from RUST (limited to 60 FPS) without any laptop coolers like I used to have before. So I could say the BIOS update did help reduce the temps a bit.
