    I recently got a Alienware 17 R4, but wasn't happy with it, so I have started to look for something else.

    It seems like a Clevo is more or less the only good option at this moment, and I made a "test" config of a P870TM1 at HIDevolution, but there are some options I don't know what they really mean:

    1. Prema Custom BIOS - Is the only option, but what is it really? Just a BIOS?
    2. Under Volted CPU. Is this good? Shouldn't under volt bring lower speed?
    3. GTX 1080 + Vapor Chamber Dual GPU Heat Sink - Is this better than standard? Why?
    4. System noise - I read it's loud, but then all gaming laptops are... is it really bad thou?

    Prema bios is like, the must for every clevo laptop, it stops throttling, and have like tons of other exciting features!(stock clevo laptop bios is crap)

    Undervolted dosent reduce cpu speeds that much but reduces heat VERY MUCH!!

    If youre going for dual gpus, or have plans to upgrade to afterwards, then only go for vapour chamber, if only single gpu, then there isnt much difference!

    Yeah, system noice would be something noticeable! But it performs better thrn what it sounds!

    @Phoenix and @Mr. Fox can help you more regarding @Prema 's bios

    Thanks.

    Are there customizable fan curves to help with noise?

    I dont think so, but i believe the noise is acceptable as if you see the fan is cooling a freaking desktop cpu and gpu!

    Anyways just use a noise-cancelling headphones nd you're ready to rock!!

    You can adjust the FAN curves (within limits) with Clevos Control Center software...

    Thanks. I have good headphones, but I have very small apartment, and the wife need to be in the same room to watch tv.

    What's the difference on these three?

    P870DM3
    P870TM1
    P775DM3-G

    They look kind of the same to me...?

    That G means G-sync
    DM3 use Z170 motherboards and kabylake cpus
    TM use Z370 motherboards and coffee lake cpus

    P870 and P775 use different chassis
