  1. It was still 128W, I am not sure why it shows it as a huge spike. It did initially show 131W, but only for a few seconds so not the entire length of the spike, the whole thing is still about 128W. The cooling seems pretty solid on this machine.
  2. Ok, all done. This was tested with Cinebench R23. Ignore the initial spike, I stopped cinebench for a moment. It seems like I get an initial spike for the first pass that puts my temps up to about 95C, after that it remained a steady 72C for the other passes. My power draw was actually consistently around 128W, even in the first pass despite it showing up as a spike. Interestingly though, there are little micro spikes in the purple graph that tank and shoot up for a few seconds, and random up/down spikes in the temperature. Not sure what causes that. M
  3. I got a 1080p panel, speaking the monitor is only 17.3", I don't think it would make a huge difference while gaming as opposed to higher refresh rates. However, I am not even out of luck there, as far as I know Thunderbolt 4 can do 4k @120Hz easily. If I want to experience my games on a 4k monitor, I would save it for a bigger screen. Those are nice features to have, I got this laptop for the long term. I hope so as well because this 3080 Laptop card has a lot of wasted potential, I really hope Nvidia stops arbitrarily power limiting cards. I can do that, what app do y
  4. I finally received my laptop, and right out of the box with NO overclocking, its actually pretty close. In fact your CPU runs faster. I am still happy with it none the less, even though I don't have much of a desire to overclock it. You can see here though that the RTX 3080 does its job, just not so much better than the RTX 2080 that it is a must have. Personally I only got it because my current laptop just had a GTX 1660 Ti in it, its soul purpose was to bridge me to the 30 series laptops where I would get my first true gaming laptop.
  5. Ah, I see you are looking for a career change, I know this is a bit of a derailment. Yes, I drive company and I easily rake in over $4,000 a month, and all I do is go back and forth on the I-40 to the I-44 dropping trailers at company terminals. Its mindless ... Just watch your health, it goes very fast if you don't watch what you eat and refuse to exercise when you can. I didn't and now I am obese with high blood pressure, I am fixing it with exercise and diet but just don't get there in the first place. Other then that, its pretty chill. I recommend you go to a trucking company w
  6. If Angry Joe reviewed laptop makers, he would just be dead ... That's probably why he will never do reviews like that! Ship them a box where you use black widows as packing peanuts, the email would be HILARIOUS!
  7. Honestly, if you have the time and patience, just do it yourself. There are plenty of good reasons you may want a pre-built, but the way these companies treat their expensive machines it just may not be worth it. Personally I would love to learn how to build my own PC, but my life style as a over-the-road truck driver renders desktop PCs pointless for me. I have to opt for desktop replacement laptops if I want enthusiast levels of power.
  8. My laptop isn't exactly this, but I assume its pretty close, tomorrow my Sager NP9672M-G1 (Clevo X170KM-G) will arrive. I saw what you claimed about the 2080 Super Mobile being similar power to a 3080 Laptop GPU, perhaps with this machine I can put that to the test and we can get a more 1 for 1 comparison. I don't imagine my laptop will perform much better, but I wonder what the results will be. My laptop is coming with: RTX 3080 16GB GDDR6 Laptop GPU Intel Core I7-11700K Processor ( 8 CORES, 16MB SMART CACHE, 3.60GHZ BASE / 5.00GHZ MAX ) 32GB D
  9. I have watched a lot of secret shopper videos, and the companies who make pre-builts almost NEVER get it right. The shipping aspect can easily be remedied by properly packing the PC, there are multiple ways to stop it from getting damaged. If people can successfully ship glass, you can easily ship a PC if you are smart about it. That doesn't guarantee it won't be damaged, but the current rate at which computes show up broken or disfigured doesn't make a whole lot of since. I have often thought about it, and I am not sure why PC builders always build their PCs weirdly, and with part
  10. Ok that's good to know, so I should still expect it to outperform standard laptops of similar spec, just not be quite a full blown desktop which would probably initially confuse me when I test it. That explains why there is multiple OEMs claiming their PCs are a (CLEVO X170KM-G) variant. The config I posted above is perfect for my use. These things have very wild amounts of upgradability too, some of them can even have the CPU swapped out! I am not sure about the CLEVO X170KM-G, but I know it has 4 M.2 slots 2 of which are SATA. No actual SATA ports though, as a m
  11. It would seem both the Origin PC EON-17X and the XMG Ultra-17 are valued at about $5k, but the SAGER NP9672M-G0 seems like a pretty good deal. It is valued at just under $4k with similar specs to others. Display: 17.3" FHD 300hz GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 16GB GDDR6 CPU: INTEL® CORE™ I9-10850K RAM: 2x 16GB DDR4 3200hz However information on the SAGER NP9672M-G0 is scarce, so if anyone has an idea on how good these Clevo laptops are, feel free to let me know.
  12. So I recently seen Linus's review for the Origin PC EON-17X, and it looks like a really top notch system. It got me thinking though, does it get better for those type of laptops? I am a truck driver, and a PC enthusiasts, but ofcourse tossing around a desktop in and out of a work vehicle is hardly ideal. So laptops are my only true option here, and I have my money down on a MSI GE76 Raider RTX 3080 ... since February ... The original Raider I had ordered had actually gotten so back logged MSI stopped making them, and now my laptop is gonna be about $4k anyways because of the 11th g
  13. Are you seriously going to ask this question now, using a monitor, on a tech forum!? Lol. I am messing with you. You got some good answers here, so unless its ionizing radiation, not really. Even the UVs from the sun is extremely mild, farmers rarely if ever get skin cancer, and they are outside almost all day everyday. Even if you do get exposed to ionizing radiation, it takes a lot in order to have a high enough chance of triggering cancer to even be considered dangerous. You are a lot more likely to die from a plane falling out of the sky, then you are to radiation of any kind:
  14. I can't seem to remove this streak, I have tried scrubbing with microfiber cloth and some lens cleaner (Just what I have on hand) to no avail. I have even tried lying it down, and scrubbing it with a clean soft sponge and some distilled water to no avail. This is still smaller then it was previously, so I have worked it down but I can't seem to shrink it further. Does anyone know the best solution for this? What chemicals should I use? Anything specialized for this kind of problem?
  15. You don't have to worry about that so much, almost all gaming laptops have expandable memory. MSI will definitely let you swap out the ram sticks, ofcourse I know that for a fact on the GL75, but so will ASUS, Alienware, ...etc. On a set up like mine, you could easily get 120 or more FPS on both games at Ultra settings. Now you might find diminishing returns on titles that are very new, 2020 titles and up might have to start lowering the settings. AC: Origins was kinda the limit on an Ultra quality modern game, ofcourse not all new games will be up to the same graphical standard
