    Those are massive differences! I'm considerring ordering this one over the Gigabyte P37x. When ordering from you and requesting the IC Diamond, do you check the temps afterwards? Or could/would you if I asked for it? What would be the wait time?

    Has anyone tried using Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra? There should be no risk of corrosion, as Aorus states that their heatpipes are made of copper and HIDevolution has it as an option.

    Ok guys - placed my order with Gentech this morning. Should have the machine by late next week. I had them add the IC Diamond paste as well. Will let you all know how it goes once I receive it.

    Can anyone measure from the top of the touchpad to the bottom(before the textured part)?

    I want to know how much of usable touchpad space there is.

    FIY, the Video Capture board on one of the M.2 slot can be replace with M.2 SSDs:

    As of yet there hasn't been any info on that. TBH, the 3k screen on the X5 is gorgeous, so an IGZO 4k isn't really necessary. That and I don't think there is a 4k IGZO with G-Sync, at least not at 15"'s.

    When this model was announced it was in every write up in had a 4k izgo screen.
    Is it true that one with g sync does not exist?

    In January of this year when they had announced it, it was supposed to have a 4k display but no g-sync. I'm assuming they ending up adding g-sync and only the 3k panel was available with g-sync.

    So as of right now there is only one display, the 3k g-sync model.

    Like ssj92 said, the Aorus X5 will only have 3K screen with G-Sync.
