    Same as desktop then.

    5MO each too?

    Wasnt expecting much similarities due to lack of ref design.

    Due to the 4K panels being out of stock, my order with PC Specialist (UK) was delayed by almost two weeks. I had to change the order to a g-sync 1080p panel for it to progress, and it did quite quickly.

    I am pleased to say that it arrived yesterday, and to my surprise -- despite what their online and phone support staff stating that there is no dual PSU converter box and that it isn't necessary with the system -- ordering the system with two power supplies actually resulted in the dual power converter being included in the system accessories, which makes things going forward a hell of a lot easier. The 1080p panel also ended up being a 75Hz panel as opposed to the 60Hz that was being advertised on the website. If there is the possibility of a screen upgrade in the future, I can get an upgrade through PC Specialist for the actual price difference between the two panels and a nominal labour cost.

    Now, it's a matter of putting this new behemoth to use while phasing out my reliance on the Alienware 18. Feels strange, but necessary.

    I haven't seen any benefit with unified HS design. From any laptops or brands. Never!! I will almost call it worthless vs own single heatsink for cpu and gpu. The unified HS design is more made for thinner laptops with limited internal space. See the new Awbook's!! Worse fit and no advantage in benching!! For me useless. And you must rely on the heatsink lottery. And all know Clevo's Qc regarding heatsink:cool:

    Thinner laptops need to compensate their more and more thinness with better cooling. This is the wrong way doing it(shrink the laptop design). Laptops have already problem with the cooling!! See Applebook's and Gigabook's!! Thicker laptops can have a more massive cooling... See 870DM2/3. This model have now increased thickness vs first model. Why do you think Clevo increased the thickness? Because of the design?:D

    Well, maybe not. I am dual booting W10 so DX12 is doable, but @octiceps said it is a Windows Store crapxclusive. I don't let that filth on my systems. I've got no traces of Windows Store, Apps, Cortana, telemetry, biometrics, etc. I exorcised all of those demonic components at the W10 WIM file level prior to installation and I don't think that I will be letting them back in. I'd still like to get the key for it in case they pull a Quantum Break move, which would be the right thing for them to do.

    There is not a split design that can hold a candle to the thermals this beast can cope with.

    Also I applied the power mod and yes it works.

    I did not mean specifically 870DM3. More this unified HS design on P775DM2/3-G.
    How do you think the processor cooling for P870DM3 would work with fully integrated cpu cooling with gpu's? Swapped this thermal pad(pairing between GPU and CPU) on heatsink with a whole unified heatsink? Most likely a worse cpu cooling!

    Yeah, I know what you mean. It was weird transitioning from my much larger Alienware 18 to the 17 inch P870. Biggest change was the keyboard. While I don't hate the keyboard as much as Phoenix, it did take some time to get used to it. The size of the screen not so much. But I got over it. Does take some time though. I still have my 18 lying around in my office.
