    Hi all, I'm a new & proud owner of a Gigabyte 15 classic laptop. According to Best Buy, I bought the 144hz screen, 512GB, RTX 2070 non-max-q variant (CLASSIC-XA-F74ADP) even though I think they mis-labeled the item specs.

    I have concerns regarding the longevity of the machine.

    Q #1: The laptop gets VERY hot when playing AAA titles at max settings, even at max fan mode (fn + Esc). Does Gigabyte use thermal paste on the CPU & GPU? Which kind? I can apply Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut or something to help, but I was just wondering.

    Q #1.5: The rear of the laptop is very low and I don't think it's enough room for air flow. Any quick way around this?

    Q #2: The battery charges all the way and I was wanting to keep it in good health by limiting max charge to 80% or something. But it seems the Control Center doesn't have an option for that?

    Q #3: The laptop wakes up from sleep mode every 4hrs or so all on its own. Is this a bug and how can I go about fixing this?

    TIA for any help
