    I am a idiot, the temps get that higher cause i´ve not connected the fan for the GPU

    Now with the plugged in fan ;O) i´ve got expeced temps on wooden table with a book on the back of my notebook after a gaming session:

    I´ve ordered some "grams" more of the Kryonaut and will replace also the thermal grease between the memory modules and IC`s which are currently using "stock thermal grease" to see if i can improve temps further.

    I hope (...) there´s not too much space between the ... lets say memory modules and the copper/allu pad as for me it looks like the stock thermal paste was pretty thick on some (but maybe it´s upon perspective).



    Does anyone else already had the chance to tune a little on the P56XT? In general seems this device not has that velocity it should have (k, up on price and maybe upon the Aero15X as option for some ... )

    Almost buying Aero 15 when I stumbled upon this.. unfortunately, this model not yet released in my country.
    Any throttling issue?

    Hi,

    spoken for my europe device, I had no throtthling with stock thermal paste but fans kicked in earlier and run frequently higher stepped under load - than after I´ve did a thermal repaste with kryonaut (but upon guarantee you must check that before as you may loose that).

    For my personal needs in comparison to the price within my country

    P56XT (7700/16/1070/FHD for 1999 bugs)
    Aero15 (7700/16/1060 for 2099 bugs)
    Aero15X (7700/16/1070maxQ 2399 bugs) (was not available those days)

    I´ve selected the P56XT because I can update little more (m2/2,5") and for me personal Its not a problem that the notebook has a slightly larger footprint than the Aero15 (P56XT is still thin and looks "smaller" than other 15inch devices alike Clevo´s).

    I rated the 1070 over the 1060 those days upon performance, but seems (notebookcheck) that the 1070MaxQ performs pretty well too, which i´ve did not expected those days back.

    Also I hoped P56XT runs quieter than Aero15X as more space for cooling available, but I have absolutely no idea upon that I have no chance for a direct comparison on this.

    If you have the ~300bugs for the Aero15X and need such a small machine, then I guess you need to get it. If you invest the 300 bugs to something else (memory or SSD´s) and you not have a problem with the slighlty larger footprint, then I guess the P56XT is an excellent choice too (by just comparing those two devices).

    Regards
    aVa

    Hi,
    After much searching, I have just ordered the P56XT and am looking for a docking station with Ethernet, USB, Display port and ideally one that will also charge the laptop? Does anyone have any recommendations? Alternatively I was going to just buy a second power supply but haven't been able to find that either is there a specific part number I could search for?
    Thanks!
