amazing performance, runs things on max easy,
95° C while gaming... got it dropped to 77° C max.. do NOT use turbo boost or the performace mode, you will see mid 90°'s if playing games. custom profile in Armoury Crate. apu Sppt set to 35 watts Do NOT exceed 45W, you are then in the overclock realm.. do this at your own risk. Platform sppt 95 watts, do not exceed 115 or again into OC territory these are both UNDERclocked now. set fan to go to 100% the second it hits 70° C and ambient air temp of 24° C should stay under 80° C, note I also am using a thermaltake cooling pad with dual fans.. shaves an additional 5 ~ 9° C off. happy gaming on ultra :)

Beautiful led layout, im usually fairly impartial to these but this one is pretty nice Excellent speed sound and a quality gaming experience. Access to discounted games through the ROG Armory Crate app, nice interface to keep programs and bios up to date.. excellent t overclock potential, and runs pretty quiet overall
-Well, I've added ram to laptops before and this ones bottom panel seems difficult to remove to the point that I will bring if back and pay the $50 to have it done in store to not risk a mess up.. not really a product weakness but yeah, hard to add the extra 16 gigs I got, I'm mechanically inclined and know when it's best to stop and let somebody with greater exp lead the work. -No Webcam, although I like this as I don't have to put tape over it like I always do on others. - doesn't assist in house cleaning and having it means I also neglect this duty more often :)
Coming from a 10 year old gaming desktop it's crazy that this laptop is so ...SO much more powerful in such a smaller package. It's like being at the helm of a star ship.... I love it.
