    Did you notice the fan noise while having a headset on? Just curious.

    I will try with headphones. I would assume you can't notice the fan noise as they are no louder than any other high end lap top with fans at full tilt.

    That is the trade off typically for high power, you need high power fans to keep it cool too. But with headphones it is typically not as noticeable.

    It's possible to lower those temps and keep the funs a bit more under control.
    Try undervolting the CPU via ThrottleStop. You can also lower the GPU voltage/frequency curve via MSI Afterburner by holding Ctrl + F. Just be careful!

    Just unpacked my Zephyrus M today and I have to say the quality control is pretty poor.
    I immediate noticed the my unit had a loose bezel on the bottom right corner and on both sides further up plus the lid along the right side isn't straight.
    There's also a bit of play when I lightly tap on the track pad.
    It's a shame cos the built quality and material used is great.
