    Hello Everyone ! I'm planning on buying one of this big beast laptop with one gtx1080 or even the sli one... but I have some questions... I'm not a gamer but I make 3d with blender, & I'm also a musician so I need a quite environment when I'm recording music.. I mean really the minimum of noise possible (a little low fan noise can be acceptable but reallly quiet...)
    So I'm wondering, I saw that those beast have an option to switch off the gtx, so if I do so I guess there's no noise at all since the fan are useless no ??
    And maybe you know if the SLI beast has this option also ?

    In fact I don't need the graphic cards when I make music, but just to make 3d....

    Any advice or help are welcome, thanks ! :)

    You can't eliminate fan noise if you are going to use GTX 1080 with or without SLI when GPU is under load. So the higher the load is, the louder the fan generates.

    Just don't stress the GPU when you are recording and it should work out fine.

    My guess is you aren't going to be playing games at 4K with Max details or using blender heavily while in a recording session.

    If you can configure blender using CPU only without CUDA then it's possible to shift the load away from GPU but if CPU gets hot then the noise will still be there.
