  1. I guess the DS/3DS library will live on with emulators. I mean, playing them on something like a Surface Duo (or V60 dual screen) sounds amazing: The lack of shoulder buttons might be an issue though
  2. Am I the only one here that actually likes the design? Assuming the sliding screen isn't heavy enough to make it feel top heavy, I think this is brilliant. I can think of 3 things that people spend majority of their time in which this massively benefits over traditional design -Watching videos (top video, bottom whatever) -Playing games (top game, bottom gamepad) -Text editing (top text, bottom keyboard) And this is far less clunky than a dual screen design. If LG can get the software side of things done well, I honestly might get this
  3. Not sure whether to put this in Troubleshooting or here. Does anyone know any well regarded general laptop board level repair services that accept laptops worldwide (in this case, from Spain)? I've got a Sager NP7850/Clevo N850HP which a non-functioning dGPU. Everything else about the laptop still works, but as soon as I try to enable the GTX 1060 from device manager, it bluescreens. I've contacted the seller, but it's out of warranty and it seems the repair would be a full board replacement (they estimated the cost would be anywhere from $200-1000). Given
  4. Hey all! Just wanted to share my experience. On my quest to ever make my system more quiet, I've decided to replace the stock intel TIM under the IHS with liquid metal (conductonaut). Before pic right after deliding, I used this delid tool to do it. Fairly straight forward, although I accidentally nicked a bit of my IHS when jamming the screw in. After cleaning it up, coated SMC's with nail polish. Gave it 3 coats cause it's my first time and I don't trust myself: Finally, the liquid metal application, huge thanks to tech jesus' incredibly thorou
  5. Interesting, I didn't know there was a non conductive TIM better than kryonaut out there. Thanks! Thanks everyone! I'll stick with TIM between heatsink and IHS after all
  6. Added it now, NH-D15, and yea, that's what I thought, I do wonder what type of temp difference there are though

  8. Hey all! Finally decided to delid my 4790k, going to use Conductonaut between IHS and die. Now thinking what I should use between the IHS and the NH-D15. Anyone know the performance difference between: Die -> LM -> IHS -> TIM -> Heatsink and Die -> LM -> IHS -> LM -> Heatsink ? My main concern is I've never used LM before, I'm worried about leakage and bricking something. Whereas I'm more comfortable with excess Kryonaut squished out the side of IHS and freely dangling around the motherboard. If the temp differe
  9. Whenever I search something on google, the page finishes loading but the results are not clickable until a few seconds after. Happens randomly, anywhere from once every hour to once every 5 hours. Here's a video where I managed to repeat it (took like 5 tries): I've tried disabling uBlock Origin, still occurs. I'm trying to use Firefox whenever I need to google something to see if it occurs there too, so far it hasn't. Any idea why this occurs and how to remedy this?
  10. Quick! Someone post something racist on LTT and get ALL the news press! /s
  11. Good lord, I think I know why his sounds like a vacuum LOL Dang thing only got 1 fan to handle both CPU and GPU: The 17 inch does look a bit better with 2 fans: The 1660 ti version is 100 grams heavier with a few more heat pipes I believe. I can't seem to find any picture right now though. Those higher end models also seem to lack in-depth reviews. No idea if they would be louder or quieter than the 1650 MQ models.
  12. Haha I see, interesting. Do you remember which model he has exactly? Or at least the screen size and GPU. Not saying I don't believe your readings, but there are several models of the GF series. 15 and 17 inch, 1650MQ to 1660 ti. The one I mentioned is the 17 inch 1650MQ model which might be quieter given the much lower power consumption.
  13. Well, yea, that's to be expected given it's 500-700 grams lighter than most other 17 inch laptop lol. And honestly I'm in for an improvement. Notebookcheck reports 41 dB(A) during gaming. My current laptop (Clevo N850HP6) gets to a whopping 46 dB(A). My main concern is the 34 dB(A) on idle. No idea how bad that is. Could you ask your friend how tolerable the "silent mode" is for his GF model? As in is it a low pitch hum, or more of a high pitch whine? Or something else?
  14. @5x5 @Enderman Honestly after looking around I'll probably end up picking up an MSI GF75 Thin and chuck the 2.5 inch drive out for a total weight of around 2.1kg. The 9th gen one seems to be decent and much cheaper than other 17 inch laptops. I'll still wait for the Dell XPS 17 9700 review though What do you guys think? Also, in the name of more weight saving, any idea if it's possible to swap out a laptop batteries for a smaller capacity one? Given the voltage and current rating is the same, just less capacity, is it safe to do so? The MSI GF75 rocks a 51
