    Let me know what you guys think ?
    is this good, or great ? (or too long in the waiting...)

    Now this is a stock clocks and stock driver with with Optimus (switchable) even though it's a Extreme CPU.

    I always like to give standard results for the baseline so you know what to expect.

    I leave it up to you to figure out how crazy this can go, but the temps were good, as this card is only 115W instead of like what we had with the other MSI 1070 Card that so many of us were chop-shopping our laptops to run hahaha (which was 150W, and only in Alienware's did they run perfectly, because Alienwares have so much power for the MXM slot its nuts)

    Same as you would expect, the 115W 1070 put outs less heat then a 980M would.
    As for the 4940X it's as expected.

    Your not attempting to troll me are you ?

    Maybe my expectations from the laptops I configure are different then yours, but I have always been able to manage the temps better than that without going EXTREME.

    When I do, well, there's a plethora of people who have reviewed my services, hope they speak for themselves, as for what I expect temps to be, should be about 90C actually on the i7-49xxXM when at 4.0Ghz At stock 3.8Ghz/3.9Ghz depending which one, should stay at 75-80C in the AW17/AW18.
    Undervolting to barely achieve those clocks (not to be confused with undervolting Skylake or Kabylake, for different reasons), you can remain at 65C, with incredible pasting and low ambience maybe 55C or 40C at Idle. It's all relative really.
    However, the AW17 with an Extreme Haswell can got as high as 91C I think before it trips/throttles. (If I am recalling correctly) It actually was one of the first CPU's I found throttled very well.

    interesting... because when I take msi 1070 vbios and open it with TDP tweaker... it shows 115w TDP by default!
