    Hope you'll enjoy it. Don't waste your time with an unboxing video, just take some pictures so we can see the quality of the case.

    Anybody got a clue what could be giving me this water mark that says "Windows 8.1 SecureBoot isn't configure correctly Build 9600" All I did was update my Bios firmware.

    Also my turbo / stealth buttons arent working.

    Isn't win 8 tied to the mobo? Try a bios reset to default. There are a few win 8 options in the bios. Make sure that they are turned on.

    Happened to me too after installing windows 8.1. Should be an option in the BIOS to "Install Secure Boot Keys" or something similar that you need to select. These "keys" have to be uninstalled to install a different OS (8.1 in this case) and I guess it didn't automatically re-install after 8.1 update completed

    I also seem to have lost my dGPU. Windows 8.1 drivers are buggy.
    *Fixed it by downgrading my GPU drivers to 9.18.13.2683 (326.83)

    Still don't know how to get rid of the watermark issue.
    *And fixed by going into the bios and deleting the "keys" thanks hu1.

    Blk, fyi disable fastboot if you want to have the chance to go into the BIOS.

    Now to study for my mid terms.

    Is the shiny bezel made out of plastic? I'd like to paint it black, but I'm concerned about the area around the hinges.
    Could you please make a video while running some CPU & GPU intensive game so we can get a idea about how loud it really is?
    I'm wandering if we could upgrade the display to an IPS panel. As there aren't many IPS panels using LVDS it would be nice to have an eDP interface. AIDA64 should give us an indication regarding the interface used hopefully.

    I can't really comment on the bezel, it might be metal or a really heavy plastic. Although it wasn't icy cold this morning so it might not be metal.

    On the box they had an area that identified the color of the unit, yellow check box and a black check box, so perhaps in the future they will have black unit to ship.

    And sure ill make a video after my midterm, showing the fan noises.

    I'll post a system info and AIDA64 tonight.

    ---- battery info ----- (meant to post this yesterday)
    Quick update,

    I took my laptop to the library to study for my midterm, and I got some pretty decent battery life.

    I got 4 hours 23 minutes, out of the laptop.
    Scenario
    - %20 Brightness (Lights up the display just enough to show deep colors)
    - Wifi on, downloading games at 10mb/s. (BF4+Steam)
    - External HDD transferring files to onboard HDD. (2 hours. Internal HHD got HOT, 50C)
    -Light web browsing, (power points and some youtube)
    -10% - 30% CPU (Low 50C high 60C)

    Overall I stressed the laptops well enough, I'm pretty confident it can reach the 6 hour mark, if you do nothing but word process. Youtube perhaps 5 if you don't multitask.


    I will try under-volting my CPU soon, hopefully it can reduce my CPU temps.
