  1. Thanks for the all the advice! Sorry for the late response. I got my hands on a ge75 9sf a few days ago (sadly not from hidevolution due to time constraints, still has great temps though). I started undervolting and I'm not sure if I'm doing this right anymore as I've undervolted the core by -1v and haven't carshed in the witcher 3 on ultra. Cores are also running at 3988Mhz at this undervolt. Temps hover around 71C to 81C on any undervolt ranging from -.5v up to -1v. Temps for -.250v runs a bit hotter around 86c. This is all with a cache undervolt of -.125v.
  2. I'm not the biggest fan of the looks of the Alienware m15 when opened, too much gloss for me. Though the battery life definitely makes a compelling reason to buy. Would you say the 2070 max q is sufficient on the Alienware m15? I like the looks of the gs65 and gs75 but am weary of inverted motherboards on the gs65 and much flex on the gs75 (perhaps this ins't an a issue with careful handling). The GE75 is definitely something that grabbed my attention based on a review I saw where it had liquid metal applied. Do you know if MSI also offers anything where warranty can be transfered from one region to another? Do you know if any of the EVOC systems are good/worth the money? Or if their warranties go outside the US as well. I'm not as worried about warranty this time arround as I expect good things from HID based on reviews.
  3. Is the motherboard on the gs75 inverted like the gs65? I might end up imitating that setup if I can't find a good gaming laptop, hopefully I'm not that unlucky lol
  4. Thanks for the reply! I've heard some good things about that model and I've seen they have a refresh out. I've yet to see many reviews on the refresh though, but it looks like an improvement over the older design including the classic
  5. I need help finding a laptop that would be good for both computer science and gaming. I plan on ordering something in a few days as I will be going to uni soon. As of right now I live in Maryland USA but in a few weeks I will be going to Germany for school. My budget is about $2000 to $2400. I've already tried a Razer Blade 15 advanced (i7 8750h and 2070 max q) but returned that due to loud coil whine and have also tried a Asus gx502 (i7 9750h and 2070) but returned that as well due to a few physical defects. Due to this I am somewhat afraid of having issues with another laptop. I would prefer something that isn't too heavy (I'm willing to carry up to 6 pounds around) and I'm not to concerned whether it is 17" or 15" as long as I can carry it around if needed. I don't intend to use it in class but might use it for class work on campus. Battery life isn't too much of a concern as I am not expecting to use this sort of laptop in situations where I'm far from a outlet. 4 to 6 hours would be considered a bonus in my opinion. I would prefer something that is max p but I'm open to max q as well. I'm looking to buy from a place such as hidevolution as I've heard many gaming laptops aren't exactly cool and I'd like to do all I can to keep temps reasonable and fan noise not too loud (I'd say 58db is getting too loud for me but I can live with it if it means better thermals). I'd consider both thunderbolt 3 and Gsync as bonuses and not essential. I did find this on amazon, the Acer Triton 500 with 2080 max q, but I'm a bit weary of the inverted motherboard. I'd like to be able to easily access ram and M.2 slots so this wouldn't be ideal, but I can't find anything as small for the price. Thoughts? Is there any major downside to getting an i7 8750h over an i7 9750h? Thanks in advance!
