    Question: what's the difference between the sanded and brushed metal chassis?

    Maybe Prema would have more info, but I think the current idea is that it's just the appearance.

    its just a different way the metal chassis was manufactured. the upper layer was either sandblasted, which results in this almost black (and i guess kinda rough/non-smooth) texture, whereas the brushed metal would have a rather shiny and smooth finish.

    PREFACE: First time poster. Please correct me if I have overlooked some rules.

    I really like how Mythlogic breaks down the M.2 options in the Clevo P650Sx, including offering the Plextor M6e x2 and Samsung XP941 x4 options. The XP941 seems to be the clear winner, and the only one really worth going for if one is going to go for PCIe. However, I am a bit concerned with some of the heat issues that some articles are starting to cover when it comes to PCIe connected M2 devices.

    Anyone else heard anything?

    Usually if you want a config that's not offered on the website you can call and ask for something specific.

    concerning the heat issues, afaik schenker includes thermal pads with M.2 devices that allow them to use the chassis as a huge heatsink. i guess when push comes to shove we users have to come up with our own solutions in order to keep those M.2 drives cool n stable :p

    welcome to the humble P6x0Sx home my friend ;) im also already counting the days until all components will be available at my reseller. so far it looks like ill have to be patient until end of november/beginning of december. BUT: my trusty old P150HM has been revived and is already on its way back, so theres something to pass the time with :)

    Are you waiting on the 980m? Or just the 970m? From what a couple of resellers in the US here have seemingly noted, the 970m will arrive first. I'm fine with the 970m personally.
