Uhm maybe Adaptive or Max performance option is not for mobile devices ... dunno . Can`t check for myself , i have an Amd gpu and the other laptop uses intel`s GMA . Sorry ...

Anyway if the video card is failing , try not to stress the laptop too much . You don`t want other parts to fail aswel .

i tried max performance and 'let the application decide' both but it didnt make any difference and those are settings for the videocard not directly related to powerconsume i think because the opposite of max performance is max quality. I contacted my dealer I suppose they know how to handle this all. Im too afraid to open the laptop myself or over/underclock it without knowing it will fix it for sure. Its sad that the original poster of this topic didnt post the endsolution. I will do it for sure when all this trouble is over!

Temp from idle to crash

Okay this might be usefull guys.

So temperatures from idle to 2minutes before crash.
How to read: 1 (2-3) would mean: Value 1 Minimum 2 Maximum 3

Idle
CPU 75 (61-93)
GPU 76 (58-80)

4minutes ingame
CPU 75 (61-93)
GPU 79 (58-83)

5minutes ingame
CPU 75 (61-93)
GPU 83 (58-87)

6minutes ingame
CPU 75 (62-97)
GPU 87 (58-90)

8-10minutes
CPU 75 (61-97)
GPU 89 (58-92)

15-18minutes
CPU 77 (61-94)
GPU 90 (58-93)

20minutes
CPU 76 (61-95)
GPU 95 (58-98)

25mins
CPU 78 (61-95)
GPU 89 (58-99)

28mins
CPU 80 (61-95)
GPU 96 (58-99)

30mins
CRASH

Conclusion: CPU temperature stays at about 80 degrees but GPU rises from 75 idle to 99 just before the crash.

hope you can read this? Im dont know how to interpret these results but to me it seems like a GPU overheat :eek:

maybe your laptop just needs cleaning ...

My old DELL XPS was shutting down when the GPU reached 100C ( about 15 minutes ingame ) . The temperature kept rising even when idling . I changed the TC and cleaned it up and no more problems .
I believe the right temperature for your GPU would be 80-85 max / full load . The CPU temp. is a bit high but it`s not a problem . If im not mistaking that laptop has 2 separate cooling systems , so basically the GPU and CPU are cooled separately , they don`t share the same heatpipe ..

Find someone to clean the laptop for you .

fixed

Okay guys. I opened the laptop following this Russian guy's guide:

How to Fix MSI GT780 Overheating Issue part 1 - Yo...

And I had the same problem as him (CoolPaste was almost gone) + A lot more dust inside the laptop then he had.

I cleaned it his way except for the 'holding the fan under the water' and now its working perfect again.

Idle temp
CPU: 40
GPU: 40

Gaming temp
not much, gpu at 65 for hitman. be sure to add cool paste in combination with an X-screw-close.

Thanks for the help everyone especially werez
