    Hi guys.
    Long time member, first time posting.
    I've just purchased an Aorus 15 X9 (RTX2070). This thing is impressive and more specifically the thermals.
    I could not get the temperatures of the CPU or GPU go over 70 degrees C (fans at full speed). I did an undervolt but no repaste, cooling is 100% stock.
    My best Fire Strike- Graphics Score so far is 21197 - here
    My best Fire Strike overall is 17991 - here
    My Cinebench R15 CPU is 1240cb back2back

    I so want to break in the 18000+ Fire Strike :D

    How is the performance and temps with just a undervolt and stock fans?

    That's a pretty good score. The 2070 in the Scar II only got like like mid 16000s.

    After some more playing around with ThrotthleStop and Afterburner...
    Woohoo 18154 in Fire Strike - here :D
    Graphics Score - 21452!!! Actually higher than the 21340 Aorus are officially stating.
    Cinebench R15 1261cb
    Max CPU temperature during tests - 67 degrees C at the 2 hottest cores and 65 on the other 4. No throttling.
    Max GPU temperature during tests - 57 degrees C. No thermal throttling but it hits power limit.
    I wonder how to raise the GPU power limit? Any ideas?

    Update!
    Fire Strike score 18390 - here
    Graphics Score - 21817
    Fire Strike Extreme 9644 - here
    Time Spy 7909 - here

    Update 2!!!
    Fire Strike score 18592 - here
    Graphics Score - 22116
    Fire Strike Extreme 9756 - here
    Time Spy 8039 - here

    There's an option for it in XTU, not sure about TS.

    Very impressed by the performance, are the fans fairly quiet on the Auto fan profile when gaming and how high are COU temps when gaming on auto fan?
    Is it true the screen does not have Gsync? Would suck if not. Some people have mentioned that you really don’t need Gsync with such a high refresh rate but the only people that say that are people that don’t have a Gsync screen. It’s a deciding factor to me.
    Thanks

    On Auto fan, the laptop is very quiet. HWiNFO reported maximum CPU 85C, Average 70C NO Thermal or Power throttling!
    Maximum GPU temperature - 77C, Average 62C, NO Thermal throttling, but it hits power limit. Max GPU power is 117.690W but I've seen it as high as 120W. And this thing is tiny! Slim and light too. So it is in fact possible to design a powerful laptop with good cooling solution cough alienware cough dell

    And yes you are correct, NO G-Sync. I honestly don't think it's such a big deal, considering the price of the laptop and the performance you get I'm quite pleased. I currently have an Acer Predator laptop with G-Sync and comparing it to the Aorus, I don't think there is any difference. I just wish there was an option to use the Intel GPU (for longer battery life), but it looks like it has been disabled because I can't see it in Device Manager.


    I was looking at the Alienware Area51m but I just can't justify the cost. Here in New Zealand a configuration similar to the Aorus (i7-8700 & RTX2070) costs $5300NZD ~ $3610USD and the 9900k & RTX2080 combo "starts" from $8800NZD ~ $6000USD!!! To me that's insanity.

    Yes PB Tech, they are the official distributor for Gigabyte. And no, no units on display, but if you ask them, they'll probably open a boxed unit for you. They won't let you install any software on it though (I tried :D )
    Cheers
