    Hi All,

    As I have upgraded to a new clevo p751tm1, I am considering to sell my MSI16L1X laptop. It was purchased from cyberpower computer UK approx 1,5year ago, I have the invoice. There, it is called cyberpower fangbook extreme v4. It is fully the same as Eurocom Tornado F5, however there is no sign or any brand on it.

    Parameters:
    • i7 7700k delided with TGC, works flawlessly on 4,6Ghz@1,239V resulting in 75-80C max in full stress (chosen out of 5 pieces of 7700k)
    • Kingstone 16G 2400mhz ram (2x8G) - they are under the keyboard, so further 32G upgrade is pretty easy
    • upgraded to 1080GTX (200W model) used @0,9V 155-160W resulting in 82-84C under full stress (brand new heatsink purchased) - superposition 16k, firestrike 23k
    • Micron 512G M600 M.2 SSD + heatsink included - R560/W510 - 1x M.2 slot is free
    • Toshiba 500G HDD
    • upgraded to AUO 1080p 120Hz screen (I can include the original 60Hz IPS g-sync screen)
    • upgraded to 330W
    • upgraded to Svet's UNLOCKED bios (brightness control, everything works fine)
    • Steelseries RGB keyboard - I like it very much, one of the best laptop keyboard imho
    • Battery is round 92%, however I almost always use it plugged
    • Bottom cover modded with 50mm holes for better cooling
    • the warranty expired as it was 1 year
    • Comes with original box and stuffs
    The computer is in good condition, always carried in second skin. It has a very small minor dent on the bazel, when it was removed. It can be seen only when the light breaks on it. (after vbios upgrade driver install works like a charm). All my upgrade posts can be found in the thread (delid, bottom cover, 1080GTX, bios, screen).

    Thank you for your price proposals,
    Cheers

    No answer is meaning, that F5 is still priceless :) OK I have checked some benchmarks, so I have figured out something :)

    This one's hard to price out (in my eyes) as you've got all the bells and whistles.. Although the machine is seemingly just now entering into its phase out stage on most sites, so the discounts are pretty solid. Looks like that same config on Eurocom would be around ~$2,300, but they are now offering a 20% discount on the site for that model in particular. Seeing as how most of the single GTX 1080 775's and P870's with 8700K's go for about $2,000. I'd probably say you're in that ~$1,500 range for a quick sale. My opinion of course, but I just don't think that it calls for a $2,000 price when the other models are being phased out and sold for the prices they do.

    I spec'd as close as an approximation as I could to your system and I'm coming up with $3208USD. 20% off w/ Eurocom special = 2566.40. But it is last generation's model. Usually at this stage, the longer you hold onto it the more it depreciates but don't take a bath on selling it too cheap though.

    Thx for your ideas, its hard to price as it is not new, however it is maxed out pretty much, all bios, vbios, silicon chip is inside, as cooling, bottom mod whatso ever... to be frank my 751tm1 does not go better under gaming or the difference is not that big.. anyway I will list around 1900USD and I will see...
