    Might be just me but I can't see any fan noise data. Can you point me to the correct graphs? thanks.

    I guess heavy load does make it a loud machine. Though it also has 42dB(A) listed as minimum load noise so I guess it depends on the load. I imagine it will be around 50dB(A) in most cases. Still loud but along the lines of most others.

    Doesn't look promising. Looks at this GPU Temps.

    Maybe the R5 1600 + 580 model will fair better but yes, it's a hot machine.
    I wonder how a repaste and undervolt will change things, though.

    I don't know but do the engineers at Asus not know how to design a proper thermal management system?

    Yeah, It's scary that engineers working in team can't do it any better. One engineer can approve it and mean it's good enough, but more than one engineer working on projects like laptop design.

    The GPU temps are 81c/85c on a heavy load test, not bad, certainly not worth those comments.

    Coming from the Clevo world I'd expect you all to be very happy with those numbers :)

    Personally I've never owned a Clevo. I know it's not good to base your purchases off of looks but damn they are ugly. A little to ugly for me. That being said, the PA70 is the first Clevo design I've liked.

    I've always been an Asus/MSI type of guy but lately, Asus is worrying me with these thermal designs. I was all set on a GE73vr but I don't game as much as I used to and I feel like the 1070 would just be going to waste considering the only games I play are Counter Strike, Hearthstone and Overwatch. I think the added thermals and fan noise of the 1070 would be pointless. The 1060 version is too expensive at this point.

    Honestly I don't know what I'm doing at this point. I've been researching my next purchase for the past month and I'm constantly going back and forth between multiple models. I've came to the conclusion that there are no perfect laptops but I don't know what I'm waiting on.
