    *This is an ongoing review of my experience with laptopparts4less *

    THE SHOP

    laptopparts4less is an online shop in the Netherlands, offering barebones systems (Clevo, MSI, Tongfang). They do not offer a PREMA bios, but they do offer LM repaste, delidding, and an 'upgraded heatsink' for the P751TM and P775TM. Their site is also quite 'barebones', but they offer the cheapest prices for Clevo systems in Europe and @Frits@LaptopParts4Less who is their (main? only?) contact person is very kind and helpful.


    MY ORDER

    I've ordered a P775TM-G with the 144hz FHD screen, gtx1080 with TGC repaste, delidded 8700 with TGC repaste, 16 GB 2400mhz G-Skill RAM, 500 GB Crucial MX500 SATA, Win10 PRO, USB stick with drivers + OS, and 3 years pick-up and return warranty for less than €2600.

    Update:
    After delivery I got the 8700K with 16 GB 2400 Kingston RAM without any comment on the changed configuration. All in all I'm not complaining.


    PRE-ORDER EXPERIENCE

    I began looking around for a new laptop in July 2018. I sent my first mail to Frits on 19 July, inquiring into the P751TM as I wasn't sure whether I would go for a 15inch or 17inch size laptop. Frits replied 15 minutes later. Over the next months I sent six more mails asking for more options and details. Frits replied each time very quickly, always the same day except for in the weekend.


    ORDER & DELIVERY

    I've placed my order on Friday 5 October. According to Frits the laptop will be sent on Thursday 10 October with the post.

    Update:
    The laptop was sent on Friday 11 October and delivered on Saturday 12 October in perfect condition.

    Once u got the notebook, show us the temps. The "upgraded heatsink" part is interesting.

    I know the thread, I started it ;-)

    But that was about replacing the P751TM heatsink. I eventually bought the P775TM, which also comes with an upgraded heatsink - or is it the same alternative as the one you posted? If so, then I paid a little extra for a standard option, which is not really cool. We'll know soon enough :)

    Correct. Unlike the P75xTM, there is only one standard option heatsink on the P775TM:

    great! What games do you have around to benchmark it? :)

    as for benchmarking tools I'd suggest the classic ones such as:
    cinebench R15
    ungine valley
    Prime95
    3dmark firestrike/timespy

    You could also show us temps in the "extreme scenario" by using prime 95 and ungine vallye for 10mins.

    Considering the single component testing you did (GPU only and CPU only) and the shared heatsink design, I'd say you're in for a suprise. Witcher 3 will probably run fine, but games like AC:O, AOTS, Mafia 3, Crysis 3, Far Cry 5, Tomb Raider etc. will give much higher temps.
