    Did OP get his x7 DT laptop yet? I’d love to have the gtx1080 version.

    I was actually looking at the P750TM1G and P775TM1G.

    Ultimately decided that they were a little dated looking. And to bulky. They are beastly though.

    Pretty sure they have the Toshiba GX3 nvme ssd. Seems to get 2200mb read/ and 1400mb write speeds.

    My Aorus X7 V7 included the GX3 in it. But, I thought it would include a SM961

    But did you get it from HID? Because he ordered HID-approved. Hence why I asked him. But probably he got his unit and vanished from the forum as many do. Or maybe just forgot.

    Also, to your statement above... what GPU is so cool it'll make you think it's in a desktop? xD

    I’ve owned a desktop gtx1070 and a desktop gtx1080.

    I’d say my own gtx1070 in my Aorus breaking 20,000 graphics in firestrike while running about 66c at full tilt while 4K gaming.
    Running 1080P these temps drop to about 56C while gaming.

    What does as desktop gtx1070 offer over this?

    Overall is 16,260.

    This is beyond impressive.

    It would have been nice buying from HID but, I’m all about saving money.

    That's really interesting, Notebookcheck showed the unit hitting 77c in just Witcher 3 at 1440p after an hour. I wonder what you play that keeps it so cold at 4K

    After getting use to the laptop, I’ve gotten tired of hearing fans. And since I have some temperature head room I decided to see if I can have a silent gaming experience. So, setting the lowest fan speed at 30% is inaudible to me. This is also the lowest fan speed on custom. With my gpu at +100/+785 running BF1 at 4K it averages right at 79C-81C.

    The cpu also hovers around 80C-82C it is undervolted. And running totally stock right now.

    This laptop is totally silent! And very nice, because I can pause the game and hear nothing..

    I think I’m going to leave it like this. The cpu is running stock but I really don’t care. It’s 100% silent.

    If I return my fan back to auto and allow it to speed up and become audible or noisy my gpu hovers in the 60’s and cpu drops to the 70’s

    This is my first laptop, and I just don’t see the “laptops run hot thing”

    My brothers a desktop guru, like I use to be. And it runs AS cool as his MSI gtx1070 aib card with a good cooler.

    The Aorus x7 V7 is unbelievable! I’m so impressed with it, I’d be hesitant to try something else in the future around upgrade time. Engineering has gone in to this laptop. A lot of it! The gpu runs ice cold while overclocked with a moderate fan profile. And will maintain better than average laptop gpu temps while running virtually silent!

    Phoenix, actually I wasn't aware of the above mentioned guides and installation tips. Now I am! I guess I know what I'm doing on the next rainy weekend! Benson881, thanks for looking out, but I understood where Phoenix was coming from. I've just gotten lazy in my old age!
