    My regional supplier is selling the CLEVO PA71EP6-G, a 25mm laptop, with the option for an 8850h cpu. Given the heat issues i've read about concerning the 8th gen mobile chips the option for this CPU seems just crazy. It is overclockable, but seems like no one will be able to take advantage of this because of the thermals. I've not read any in-depth reviews of this laptop - a few comments on forums complaining about the heat (and that was with the 8750h, not even the 8850h .. at stock) - but nothing which opens it up, repastes or attempts to maybe undervolt it. What's the deal with QC here...i mean I may be jumping the gun since there are no actual reviews (at least none that i can find), but heck systems like this will surely just be sent back and ultimately be a loss for the company? Any thoughts anyone?

    (and just so i'm clear, other clevo laptops may manage fine with the 8750h, but the 8850h in this relatively thin chassis seems flagrantly careless.)

    This is the link to my suppliers config options for this model are here - https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/defianceV-17/

    I would like to think so, but the 8850h is more powerful (hotter) than the GS65 chip, and it's overclockable. My concern is that even with a repaste (liquid metal or otherwise) that laptop will not manage stock speeds, let alone an overclock. Really just waiting until people can post their experience with the machine.

    It's an incredible system for the price, but maybe too good to be true. Are you interested in the 8750h or 8850h?

    If you can get in the US then do it, i guess if it doesn't work out you can get a refund.

    Have you talked with the seller? They might have benchmark data on it.

    Depends on what you mean by stock speeds? Base clock is fine, but no 8th gen i7/i9 laptop maintains its full all-core turbo under load without raising power limits, and only the MSI GT75 can handle full-fat all-core turbo after raised PL without overheating.
