Updating bios overheating
All graphics cards shipped from EVGA after 11/1/2016 will have the VBIOS update applied.
* The EVGA Cross Shipping options are available in the Continental United States, Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, EU, UK, Norway, and Switzerland.
As many of the batteries are internal to the system, users are advised not to replace the battery themselves, and HP is providing replacements to affected machines for free.
Users can go to its website to find out if their battery is affected.
The results in both tests show the temperature of PWM and memory is within the spec tolerance under the same stress test, and is working as originally designed with no issues.
With this being said, EVGA understands that lower temperatures are preferred by reviewers and customers.
During our recent testing, we have applied additional thermal pads between the backplate and the PCB and between the baseplate and the heatsink fins, with the results shown below.
We will offer these optional thermal pads free of charge to EVGA owners who want to have a lower temperature.
Customers can also choose to get their battery replaced at qualified HP service centres.There is also a BIOS update that installs the Battery Safety Mode, allowing customers to safely use the notebook and workstation by connecting to a power adaptor and bypassing the battery.
