    So my GS60 has this problem where when I press a specific spot on the laptop its makes kinda of a cracking sound. It's not that big of a deal but is a bit annoying since a lot of times I just pick up the laptop with one hand from that side to put it in the bag and makes that noise.. Here's a quick vid of the sound it makes : https://vid.me/rqlL

    Do you guys know what might be happening and would it be a easy fix?

    It could be that the plastic clip on the inside broke, and the two sides of the cover are clipping each other to make that sound. can you see any movement of the cover when you apply pressure?

    The movement seems to be the same on the side that makes this sound and the other side of the laptop which is ok. Looking from the outside it doesn't seem to exist a visual difference when applying pressure on the two different sides.

    Are all the screws tight that hold the bottom plate including the keyboard screw and the bottom plate securely snapped to the case.
    Is the bezel around the screen snapped together all the way around

    I have this problem because I broke a clip on my bezel when putting it back together. It's only on the right side of my computer and only when I grab it in the middle.

    All the screws seem to be ok its probably the same problem as yours..
    So there's no way to fix it then ? I doesn't bother me enough to RMA it but would be nice to fix it

    Hopefully it is a major leap in performance, but price will definitely drop for existing platform.

    I installed the 2133Mhz ram and ran some benchmarks. I'm still working on my review, but to make a long story short, don't waste your money. I ran numerous benchmarks and games and could not tell the difference at all. It did run at 2133Mhz though but keep in mind I installed it on a Broadwell machine and I still am not convinced it would work on Haswell.

    My current GS60 has everything in terms of performance but I don't like the matte screen, I would like to to get it with a glossy screen and my RMA has been accepted. I was going to get the 4k version which is the only one that comes with a glossy screen, but I only just found out that it has a 48hz refresh rate (even though my resolution will be set to 1080p only). Has anyone got the 4k version and what do you think about the refresh rate? Is the 12hz difference noticeable?
