    Not just yet for most people, looks like it's on the cards (unofficially of course).

    So this is an odd request. I travel with my NP9873, and the display had developed a black spot in one small section. When I sent it into support they said it was due to too much pressure on the back of the LCD. I'm not sure if this was due to the heavy gear in my laptop bag and pushing in on it. Support has fixed my display, but I have two questions.

    1) What can I put in between the screen and keyboard to keep it from scratching the screen. Do you recommend any products?
    2) Is there anything like a hard case for this laptop (or a company that I can commission to make it) that I could slip into my huge laptop bag so I can carry this without fear of it getting damaged? The damage wasn't severe, but I'd like to take this thing around again.

    1. A thin sheet of microfiber will work nicely.
    2. Pelican Cases

    Thanks for responding I'm not sure if a Pelican case would fit in my laptop bag?

    Anyone running an external 4K monitor causing excessive fan noise?

    Unless I drop the external to 24hz, the master GPU keeps its clocks above 1100mhz and "idle" power consumption at 40W, which keeps the GPUs "idling" at low 50s and the fans on a constant and audible noise.

    @Meaker@Sager
    I purchased a p870dm3-g/NP9873-S from Xotic PC a while back. I also read around the forums that XoticPC recently are Prema Partners. I was wondering if I should go to XoticPC or to Sager for a BIOS update to allow for kabylake?
