    Well that is not true in this case, on the new Omen the issue is idle temps of 50 degrees , whistling fans and fans that spins up and down the moment you open Chrome. Its just a poorly made laptop. PR poorly made is to harsh. It is quite nice otherwise.

    If your card is idling at P2 or P0 then 50c idle on the CPU is pretty normal. Especially without all the bloatware removed.

    Just ordered mine today, should have it by the end of the week!
    I got the 15.6" with GTX1050ti and thunderbolt.
    Wanted to go for the GTX1060 to be VR ready but the sku is not out yet, and it is many hundreds more and you only get a Max-Q, not the full 1060.

    Have you had a chance to try it out yet? I can only find reviews of the 1060 configuration, and I'm curious how the 1050ti version handles heat and how noisy it is while idle and during load. Also interested in battery life and overall performance!

    Would really appreciate it! Cheers

    The 1050ti version will be less noisy and it'll handle heat better because its a lot weaker than the 1060GTX and it doesnt use G-SYNC which means the IGP wont be disabled which you'll gain more battery life.

    not having g-sync doesn't guarantee optimus/mux
