    HOT! But don't let anyone tell you that their 8750h is running cool in a chassis 1" thin or less. We're talking upper 90's in 5 min of Overwatch.

    5.5lbs with good weight balance.

    I would take the Sager over this based on $400-600 cheaper, LAN port and card reader which the Asus lacks.

    Not surprised there, for whatever reason that game seems to generate way more heat in GPUs than what I would consider more demanding games.

    do you think that with liqiud metal and Fujipoly Extreme Thermal Pads + undervolting cpu and gpu that the device can run well ?
    Its because the asus pack the full power 1070 while the sager packs the 80W max q 1070 . The 80w max q performance is only 10%(5% with esports titles) faster than a laptop 1060 and can't be either overclocked or undervolted(due to running at below 0.8v all the time). The performance hit from gtx 1070 115w to 80w max q is around 26% stock and should get even larger when the Normal 1070 runs at 1850mhz @ 0.9v through msi afterburner


    * note : there are two versions of the max 1070 an 80w version and a 90w version. The 80w boosts around 1200~1316 while the 90w version boosts to around 1480~1544. Sager and MSI use the 80w version while gigabyte uses the 90w version

    I personally do not like the liquid metal, if improperly applied or if ANY leaks out it can short your mobo. I like the thermal pastes like IC diamond or Thermal Grizzly best.

    I agree even though I make LM videos. I also don’t claim otherwise.

    Thermal Grizzly is the brand. They have LM and non- conductive TIM too such as Kryonaut.
