    Yep - the 1060 model has serious heat issues at stock.

    Because NBC don't look at only one criteria but the whole. It's a decent device with poor cooling. If you are going to use it at stock, expect 95*C thermals and throttling. It needs a repaste and undervolt.

    Will it solve the problem with temp? Or, anyway, it will be terrible, will it?

    It will help but it won't be a cool-running device.

    I own this and while it does overheat, it's not to the point where I don't use it. I undervolted the CPU and that helped a bit. I have thermal paste that I'm just too lazy to put on haha but overall, the device is pretty decent.

    I plan on getting a cooling stand for it to set up a little gaming station on a desk but when I need to take it elsewhere it's fine. I found by lowering some of the graphic settings on games it runs well. I play Elder Scrolls Online a lot and found by putting the graphics on low when I'm using it on my lap, the GPU never go above 64 degrees which is perfect since it functions as a decent portable gaming station. When I want to fire up the graphics, I keep it on a desk or a lap stand and it's totally fine.

    So while yes, there does seem to be a heating issue, it's really not the end of the world. I say if you find a decent deal on it, get it. If not, if you can find something with a bit better cooling for around $1k get that.

    Just my two cents!
