I've been having an ongoing issue with the GTX 980 in this thing overheating. Soon as it hits 70c it's basically done and black screens. I've tested a wide array of things and am at my wits end. I've reached out to XoticPC regarding this (whom I purchased it through) and they've been less than helpful except for only recently due to my public display of frustration over their customer support. I'm hoping perhaps some of the professionals here have some experience with this or something more to test? I've tried underclocking and that works for awhile as long as my game settings are low enough to never push it to maximum load, which generates too much heat. Primarily low settings with VSYNC is the only way I can manage to keep it from overheating so quickly. Below is my XoticPC topic with everything I've tried. There's also HWINFO dumps in my topic with my most recently reply containing 2 temperature dumps showing it crashing at 70c. Even with fn + 1 maxing the fans out it still overheats. http://xoticpcforums.com/showthread.php?18528-NP9870-S-Nvidia-980-Overheating-nvlddmkm Getting the feeling this GPU just flat out does not belong in a laptop.
