    Benchmarks:

    Note: The benchmarks were run with HWiNFO in the background for monitoring the temps. The scores would be higher by around 10% if I didn't have HWiNFO in the background

    Love the m.2 drives heatsink on this laptop, covers all the three m.2 SSDs to ensure that they don't overheat:

    Just ran a 3DMark11 test with the CPU overclocked to 4.2 GHz on all cores. GPU at stock speeds. GSYNC = ON. FAST SYNC = ON. Texture Quality = HIGH. Power Management = Adaptive

    I can obviously get a higher score by setting the GPU to High Performance and the texture filtering to High Performance but I wanted to show you how performance would be in a normal users' usage scenarios, that is, with adaptive power management to not make the GPU always work on the highest clock speeds which wouldn't make sense if you're watching a movie or browsing the web, and I also kept GSYNC enabled but with FAST SYNC enabled for the Vertical Sync. that way, the max FPS isn't limited to the screen refresh rate but you still won't get any screen tearing.

    BTW, in the above tests, the fans were on auto not max speed. I could barely hear them spinning. This laptop's cooling is awesome and it's very quiete

    I initially wanted 64K but then a user here posted an image from the MSI manual where they suggest 128K for SSD m.2 RAID 0 so I went with that.
