    Get the EVOC, supports up to 3200mhz ram, can upgrade to kabylake +possibly cannonlake, and gpus can be upgraded too

    Jupp, you'll be more than happy by getting the EVOC! As there is no german reseller providing the Prema Bioses, I'm stuck with my good ol' Panther.

    Would luv to get my hands on one! :oops:

    Oh yeah, they pulled of the nos ******** with the gt72 too...

    I thought msi use 230w brick to fix the gt60/70 180w problems, guess 230w isn't enough...

    Can't you put 2x Samsung 950s in raid in a P870DM?
    Superior cooling to the GT72S?
    No undesired features ( battery boost? )

    The mechanical keyboard he's thinking of is only on the GT80S, right?

    yep but ... why not just use an external mechanical? my current external mechanical keyboard has lasted a good 4 years despite me spilling watermelon juice on it. numpad + is sticky but the rest all work fine

    In this case, if the budget is not the problem, I'd take GT72S if I were you. Main reason would be whoever considers GT72S, this person should play lots of heavier loading games. other than the spec, GT72S should be equipped with more joint game features than SAGER, such as Nahimic, Steelseries, Dynaudio, Gamecaster free trial which I forgot for how long, etc. Rumors said Sager has the same inside hardware, but they should not have all these gaming features here.

    Oh right, it does have a steelseries keyboard on the GT72S just not the mechanical keyboard.
    One's faster but you lose some features you may or may not want.

    The 2800mhz ram is only CL18
    The 3000mhz ram is CL16 and the upcoming 3200mhz ram is CL16
    If you get the EVOC, you can use DDR4-3000 mhz ram and up to 3200mhz ( or however high the prema bios supports )
    You can preorder the DDR4-3200mhz ram from them too I've heard.
    Skylake scales very well with increasing ram speed. The ram in their video is CL16 I think.
