    Same here!! Predator 17 G9-793 Worked PERFECT for 2 wks, then I just installed MSI AfterBurner for the GPU (only mild 100ish point bump-up on core/mem clocks). I didn't use EVGA PrecX, which also can do CPU, the MSI S'ware ONLY effects the *GPU* Was added just B4 I saw the PS app only had dashes for CPU clock. I chk it on occasion since I want it to default to "Faster", and it drops to std spontaneously. Or else I'm not setting it right. Do I need to make a profile for the "FASTER" setting to stick?? I'm always plugged in w/ full batt charge (only on this tank for 2 wks so far), as per the PS listed guide below the selections.

    Acer Tech Sup't leaves MUCH to be desired.

    Well, as I'm new here and didn't see any Seniors signed in, I read Skelo's post abt PS, and seems it WAS the MSI AB as I suspected. And just as I was getting used to it, more complex than EVGA Prec-X, but I usually match the app to my Lappy/GPU brand. Actually only used the Older EVGA Precision. And it took abt *5* reboots to get the MSI Very Mild GPU boost to stick on bootup (still too complex, was prolly doing something wrong). I may try the EVGA, could even goto NXZT CAM which I only keep here for specs readout and am not currently using to apply mods on startup. W/ CoreTemp in my tray at all times I don't even need the PS freq. readout, which I must click to see anyway, just wondering why it suddenly only showed dashes. You'd think Acer would have a way to make a 1-Key ShortCut to THEIR PS app w/ the 1 thru 5 side keys, I can't get macros to work and they're of NO help. These boards look MUCH more informative! I could make my PS Icon a shortcut and use an F-Key, but most of mine are taken, or dedicated within certain apps.


    Some may know me from the CyberPower Boards, where I've taken a break to config this Tank to my liking, and other personal matters. I hope I didn't make a mistake buying this P-17 G9 (GTX 1070), most stuff works well, was disappointed at the low specced write speed on the 2 128's in my boot array, especially as I have a sealed SamSung 960 PRO 512GB sitting here (NVMe Write 2100, the set here is just an M.2 SATA-III pair), w/ no 3rd M.2 form factor slot to hook it to to clone the OS (and 2 wks, abt 25GB so far, of additional stuff) onto. I can't get help from Acronis, and was told by SamSung that their drives don't play well w/ a striped array. I was hoping to do a quick pump onto the spinner and then back, I thought I'd just have an image and didn't realize the RAID-0 array would throw a wrench into that plan. Any Ideas? As this tank is currently my DT replacement, the 256GB's will overfill eventually anyway, especially if I added 2 games - tho I can wait for a full DT repair for that, but still wanted to keep this Lappy longterm, so the 256 may still fill up on me down the line - 2 M.2/NVME slots inside, not 3).

    Use only one - PS or MSI. You can control overclocking GPU in MSI at a more finer level than PS, but this needs patience and some learning. PS is more simple and straightforward. Pick one, and stick to it.
