    I have a Max-17 with the 2080 Max-Q arriving tomorrow afternoon (with eluktroboost and liquid metal). Will run some tests on it that night. Not sure if i will keep it. My alienware m15 OLED while weaker is oh so hard to part with...

    if only there was a 17" OLED (120hz would be nice too). or even that MSI Creator 17 HDR minled display maybe.

    I would have held on to the blade pro a little longer if I were you and waited for the 30 series of laptops to launch. It would really be a shame if a laptop that is 50% faster with a 120hz oled display drops just in just half a year.

    Using Eluktroboost and then only a mild overclock on the GPU I can get Firestrike total score over 20k (but just barely). While I am happy with the CPU thermals I'm not pleased that the 2080 Max-Q can only be overclocked about 110 on the core and less than 250 on the memory. Compared to another owner here in the forums who had a massive overclock I feel a little ripped off. Not sure Eluktroboost is actually doing anything for my GPU at all.

    actually my Alienware M15 R1 gets a better graphics score with its 2080 MaxQ (non-super, and can overclock better). Its the CPU that is showing its age.

    I have ordered another max 17 (PCS Vyper) as i though some of the issues i had with an early model might be ironed out in later batches. Touchpas rattling is indeed gone but the control center is still crap, especially the fan profiles are unbearable. The fans ramp up stupidly as soon as 65°c are reached which is absolutely unnecessary. Is that a specialty of the PCS configuration or is that a Tongfang issue? Is it somehow possible to edit the profiles? I wouldnt mind to run at > 75 degrees for less noise.

    Many thanks for your help!

    Hi @Jdoe84 I would recommend you to ask directly in the pcspecialist forum as it seems to be more BIOS-related!
    https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/forums/forums/laptops-notebook-pcs.12/https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/forums/forums/laptops-notebook-pcs.12/

    One question: have you tried to use your laptop with the battery? did everything worked well? check these topics for more info:

    I just ordered the same laptop, so I hope it works well! :) good luck!
