    I just picked one up at the Microcenter with the 3080.
    I'm going to test it out for 2 weeks and decide whether I'll keep it.

    So far the speakers are much improved over last year's GS66.
    Looks like it needs a repaste.

    I'm not a fan of these plastic builds.

    The screen is decent I haven't noticed any backlight bleed.

    Does it have Thunderbolt?

    Hi, I currently have MSI GE75/RTX2070/i7-10750h laptop and I am allergic to noise while I navigate through WWW or write documents, therefore I use Dragon center to keep Fan 1 and Fan 2 around 1500-1600 rpm. I also undervolted CPU. I use this laptop as desktop PC replacement.
    Now I read that RTX 3070 GPU has much lower TDP than my RTX 2070 and I have questions regarding GE76/RTX3070/i7 10870h:
    1) is it possible to keep fans almost inaudible using Dragon Center or whatever? I mean during a low workload - like writing documents?
    2) is GE76 with RTX 3070 cooler and quieter than GE 75 with RTX 2070 during gaming? RTX 3070 has much lower tdp...
    3) is CPU undervolting still possible in GE76? (it is not popular procedure so I understand if you don't know).
    4) coil whine absent?

    1: Dragon center still has "Silent" under "User Scenario" and there is a "Noise Cancellation" tab which uses your speakers/microphone to do noise cancellation like ANC headphones. Given that, with Silent mode select and the noise cancellation on while writing this post, I can still hear the fan and it's going at 2400RPM. This could be improved with liquid metal. I have a GS66 w/2080 Super with liquid metal and my fan speed drops to 0 in Silent mode. Further, there is a User mode where you can set your fan speeds.

    2: I don't have a GE75 to test.

    3: CPU undervolting is available however, when I try it, the system crashes while stress testing.

    4: I have not noticed any coil whine but that's probably luck of the draw.

    Thanks for the reply. I think I will be able to afford GE76 in April. I will get one and if it suits my needs I will keep it otherwise return it.

    I've had one for a week. Got some impressive benchmark scores. Broke 34k gpu in firestrike and 13K timespy!

    I'm not seeing anywhere close to that.

    Low 12k consistantly.
    Any overclocking on the gpu or gpu mem causes a crash.

    Strange. My GPU clocks very high. Does yours have Samsung Vram? I'm sitting stable in games at 8000mhz on the memory memory and 1800 to 1845 on the core.

    Samsung memory as well.
    I'll try a few more time to OC.

    Did you repaste?
    I'm considering liquid metal or mx4.
