    These machines are poles apart :biglaugh:, build quality of the Aorus is far superior than the gigabyte, the thermals on the Aorus are far superior, like it was mentioned by another chap the battery is bigger, the SSD is faster, the CPU is superior, more memory slots, more storage slots if i am not mistaken, i could go on but you must have understood by now the premium price tag :biggrin:.

    Noted. Still hard to justify the $500 premium, imho.

    According to their respective sites, both are listed with 2000Mb/s for the hard drive.

    p.s.

    Anyone have open-case pics of both to compare heatsink/fans/cooling?

    p.p.s.
    for reference, this review looks nearly identical to the reviews I've read about the p35x. So different chassis, but same cooling performance & noise?

    $500 price difference is style, you can't put a dollar figure on that.

    If you are happy with a standard looking notebook get a Gigabyte, if you want some that looks awesome get an AORUS.

    I would also like to know how you got temperatures like that. Even the best cooled lappies I ever saw had a hard time not going above 70 in gaming.

    To be fair a 6 hour session, with the fans at a reduced level (not wake the sleeping woman) saw a peak of 91°C. But normally I'd allow the fans to run on auto at the best speed to keep things cool.

    There's also some review sites putting the standard stress temps much higher than 80.

    This looks like a great model but looking at how it's built I can't help but believe the people who call this a running train when it comes to noise and a toaster when it comes to heating.

    The laptop is actually not as toasty as u think I would get. Temps are under control. Fan noise is the only issue. They get loud, but a headphone should do the trick.
