    I think the 120Hz with 25ms defeats the purpose causing the ghosting. So we need <8ms to get full 120Hz experience, I might be wrong but that's from what I read recently.
    So from the Panel details posted by Prema
    no panel at FHD has that response time except the QHD one because TN, Really an FHD with that response time would be sweet else getting a higher response time 75Hz GSync with less than 15ms would be good, but I don't think that option exists (There's this panel LP173WF4 SPD1 but says 60Hz now with GSync would it go upto 75Hz or not, have to check with Eurocom
    EDIT : Doesn't matter It's also IPS)

    EDIT 2 :
    QHD seems the only option now...:eek: Waiting for those Alienwares curious about what panels they are sporting with those advertised '4ms GSync 120Hz at FHD and QHDs' . MSI (GT73VR) has this FHD 120Hz Chi Mei-N173HHE-G32 (CMN1747) with 50%Grey to 80%Grey at 25ms (that should not be there I guess, but still fast, Panelook doesn't have the data but It should be a TN) Black to White is at 6.8ms. So this should be the fastest FHD 120Hz panel for now & at 60Hz this is the fastest panel in P771ZM I guess -> Chi Mei N173HGE-L11. That LG-Philips 60Hz panel was since the ZM series, so there's nothing new with that..

    Note there is a hole in the pcb near the cpu socket that is easier to use when you have removed the keyboard screw.

    I was literally screaming this on my screen while watching @HTWingNut review of P870DM3 when he was poking the screw driver through the screw hole.
    :)
    And I learned about this hole from his own video of P870DM.

    Almost nothing, It's the best of the options. Hits the sweet spot for the people who want 4K/ high res & the ones who need proper scaling (for 17" tbh 4K is overkill & WinblowsX scaling sucks) / gaming / Work @ high refresh rate/resolution experience without sacrificing FPS with this new beastly hardware.

    But as for me I'd go with FHD 120Hz fastest panel.

    hhaha i wouldnt had these temps without ihs, needs heatsink base mounting modification for the heatsink to contact the die, with gallium on both sides, removing the ihs is pretty useless, steel has slow thermal transfer but not at the thickness of the ihs, copper and steel starts to differ at 2cm^3 afaik

    The IHS is nickel plated copper IIRC.

    can you show the resistor that you shorted to remove the power limit?
