    Good one. I cheaped out at 16gb ram, but that's just because it's so easy to upgrade anyway if I need it.

    That's just marking words. Of course there's a difference between 1440p and 1080p, but that was not what I meant. Gaming at 1080p works just fine on a 17-inch screen so I don't miss the extra lines. And as a bonus the high framerates are easier to maintain @ 1080p.

    Is there something wrong with the drivers?

    Also, I have a similar config coming soon, 9700k/2070. Haven't been able to find any benchmarks on the A51m 2070 yet. Would you mind running some games @ultra and let me know the fps/temps and userbenchmark.

    I'd appreciate it, as I'm contemplating returning it for 9700k/2080 as it would be cheaper than upgrading later and I'm not sure if the 2070 can handle 144hz on ultra.

    If you look a page or two back I posted a pic of battlefield V on ultra with dx12. I'd say on average i've been running somewhere around 100 with spikes up to 144 and dips down to about 72ish. Of course i'm doing more playing than monitoring my fps though.

    HID is expecting their next batch in by the 12th. Mine will be built out of that batch. All they had in stock when I called and placed my order were models with the 8700. Donald assured me that they would have it in, built, and to me in Afghanistan before I leave to go on R&R on the 31st.

    Be safe over there man.. And you’re crazy, I don’t think I could bring such a laptop over there.. I’ve been a few times and they always came back choked up with dirt and dust.
