    An on-the-way student, rookie, with intentions to extract the most out of Legion Y520-15IKBN Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 80WK - Model 80WK008UBM (Serial#PF0MTF9Z). Cuz i bought this crap somewhile ago, like half an year or so, and im quite irritated of its "capacity" either in gaming or just reviewing stuff.. And i'm getting the same performance like i used to get with my former laptop, asus rog g55vw with the 2gb gtx.. even worse, if to be exact.. I cannot fathom what am i doing wrong, so i did some digging and found out about those wicked overclocking techniques, either to the cpu/gpu but I can't skip to comment that at my former Asus, i used to successfully overclock its monitor's refresh rate with this CRU-program or whatever it was, now with this peace of crap i don't even get to choose my 3d nvidia options, like the 3/4 ot the content of the task menu is missing, also i had to manually set some games to boot thru the nvidia gpu, and still very wicked drops of fps all the time, for example cs go, at the most available low specs added, no vsync, lower resolution for example, no alisings, no antistropics, nothing at all (while the settings i've set up are according to alot of ppl from different communities, sharing about those settings that would make my gaming easier..) I had very high hopes of this "gaming" laptop, I wanted even to stream, and i tried, but it wasn't with much success cuz of my performance.. And yes, i know i can't expect much from a laptop, but srsly? Come on like 100-110 fps in cs-go ? from times to times when there isn't much of a shooting/passing by it goes to 170-nearly 200 if im lucky, but in melee fights it scales to even 65-80?? For some it's a bit normal, but cmon.. I've used to work the whole summer so i could afford to buy this.. So im appealing to u guys, pls help me out.. I'm in a desperate need to: Bypass this bloody gpu thing where it doesn't detects my external gpu, modifying my laptop from 0 to 100 (by that i mean from Registry edits, to Processes/Services, to Device Manager, to drivers, etc.) And i need everything that in your oppinion will get to be on my favour..after that i would love to get a nice guide on how to safely overclock my cpu/gpu in a way (or atleast in a way) that i won't screw my whole summer spendings.. And excuse me for the long review and story of my life, i'm just so damn irritated and annoyed.. I've red a thousand articles, thousands of guides, and still problems remain.. i think most people rly don't give a single ** about notebooks.. But im a lonely student in a long-way-from-home city, so no.. no external monitors, nothing.. just my gaming mouse and this peace of crap.. So Please guys! I'm begging for your help.. Here'r my specs.. and BIG THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    Your system is based on MSHybrid, where you have an Intel iGPU and a NVIDIA dGPU. (otherwise known as Optimus) The Intel control panel controls which GPU is used for apps and games. W10 will have an update coming, as it's in the Insider's Preview atm, which will allow you to select which GPU to use as well.

    When in MSHybrid mode, most of the settings in the NVCP are disabled, since they are controlled by the Intel CP. Some gamer laptops have a muxer, which allows the BIOS to disable the iGPU and then operate as if you only have the discrete GPU. I do not know if your system has this option, as you would need to check your documentation and/or BIOS.

    What may be happening in your low performance cases is that your games are running on the iGPU instead of the dGPU.
