Yesterday i downclocked a bit the processor usin intel extreme tuning utility, CPU is not supported in Throttlestop 5.00. After lowering the multiplier to 29x there is no more throttling and no significant performance loss (about 5%). CPU much cooler and fan is spinning much slower.
I just bought it. When rendering on 3ds max the cpu keeps throttling, slowing down pretty much the rendering process. So far i haven't found any way to disable Turbo Boost, nor in BIOS nor with Win 8 power schemes (it doesn't work). Otherwise good laptop, touchpad is not very precise though. Battery will last 1hr 30 on surfing and watching movies.
