When I bought my laptop and brought it home it was acting funny. The CPU was getting hot and the thing was stuttering. I thought it was a bad thermal coupling between my CPU and its cooling system.

B&H Photo has the worst return policy I have ever seen, and they only let you know how horrible it is after you purchase. Caveat emptor.

So I was stuck potentially repairing this thing on warranty. They wanted me to ship it halfway around the country.

This laptop is never getting shipped anywhere again. So I looked up Lenovo authorized repair places in my area. Found 3 60 miles from me, each in the same city (Redmond, WA). I'd drive it.

In the meantime, I was tinkering. Finally, I did a factory wipe right as I was just about to abandon hope.

All of my problems since unboxing cleared up. I then undervolted the processor by 110mV and 100mV across the caches for good measure.

The lappy now runs benchmarks like Cinebench and TBench without redlining my CPU package, and it performs better than my newish desktop CPU (i9-13900HX vs i5-13600K) - they perform within spitting distance of each other, but I've got them both undervolted to run them a bit cooler (my desktop's 3rd p-core runs a little hot) and as a consequence they also run faster than stock.

Man this thing screams now. If you don't mind the hassle of getting it set up and you want a portable desktop these Lenovo Legion 7i Pros are monster machines.
There's smoke in my iris
But I painted a sunny day on the insides of my eyelids
So I'm ready now (What you ready for?)
I'm ready for life in this city
And my wings have grown almost enough to lift me
