    That's a lot. That's for the CPU and GPU together or just one of them on the AW15R3? I thought one tube should be enough?

    I just want to post again that according to a Chinese site 45w kaby lake should hit retail in mid December. Thus we should expect to see it in the laptops by Jan.

    Currently you can not have the top end CPU option with the top end monitor option (gsync). Do we think that when kaby lake releases we will be able to buy the high end kaby lake cpu with the gysnc monitor.

    Also maybe they are going to keep the paste bad until they switch to kaby lake. Then they can claim that kaby lake has lower thermals as to drive sales.

    I'm no expert but I think this guy is messing with you. Which isn't very helpful when you asked a serious question. I too would like to know...

    There seems to be a new BIOS in the making (beta version is available), which updates the fan behaviour and seems to solve the problem.

    Since I'm getting mine this week, what are the best tools to check temps, framerate, etc? I will do those tests.

    My less than 24 hour old 15" with 1070 and 4K died on me :\



    As a side note, the 2 2280 slots are both NVMe now and are able to be raided! I bought 2x 512GB Intel 600p ssd's and will RAID0 them and use that as my Boot drive then get a 2.5" SSD as my storage.
