    When gaming my GTX 1070 always seems to reach 18xx MHz and my CPU always remains at 3.9 GHz. It’s normal. My old GTX 1060 does the same.

    Sorry didn't get this. So it's 0,5mm thickness but do i need another height or just those for example for the cpu vrm's?

    0.5mm works fine for all components needed to be covered

    You're in luck. Running Linux on this laptop is quite trivial.

    Can do. On balanced (note that this needs you to set fan modes and GPU switch from within Windows), with both Optimus and discrete GPU mode, the system is quiet on idle.
    Usable in a library, etc without being much of a bother.
    Under load, especially with the GPU, expect it to get loud. Note that the special keys (such as fan control, etc) do not work on Linux.
    Battery life is wanting. Carry your charger with you.

    Dennismungai - Thanks for work and info on installing Ubuntu 18.04 on this machine. It helped clear up some of the bugs I was encountering in my previous attempt to get that perfect install.

    One question - Have you figured out how to control the keyboard backlighting and the screen backlight from the keyboard as well?

    Unfortunately, no. Not yet.
    A while back, I came across this program, Light, that has such an ability, but its' a bit daunting to use. With it, I could even dim the ROG lights on the hinge. Still learning how to bind keys to it, etc.

    Is it possible to hook up an external GSYNC display to this laptop and have GSYNC function, over a thunderbolt to displayport cable I'm presuming?

    (My apologies with the cross post with the GX501 thread)
