    FYI - Windows 10 Pro (1703) is the sweet spot for having things work more or less as they should. No lag in gaming(CS:Go has rubber banding issues on 1709) or Thunderbolt connection issues, unlike when running the Fall Creator's Update (v1709), where my external keyboard and mouse would not work consistently if I had a Thunderbolt 3 drive plugged in....

    edit: also, on 1703, Remote Desktop Connections don't randomly connect/disconnect, while 1709 made remote work almost impossible (connecting to a 1703 machine)

    My P870 finally shipped after the long wait for the single gpu vapor chamber. Will post benchmarks when I get it on Wednesday.

    Wow, condolences. What were your clock settings? I've been getting 4.5Ghz across all 6 cores with no throttle (undervolt at -135.7mV), with temps around 80c (+/- 3) during heavy usage/gaming with stock heatpipes with IC thermal paste. Those temps include both GPU (stock clock) and CPU. I still get some random hiccups, but supposedly it's the crappy firmware the Samsung 960 pro's shipped with (supposedly Samsung will have a fix for it next month).

    Damn! That must have hurt. Was your 1080 GTX running on stock speeds?
    By the way; Welcome to the forum :)

    Yeah.. I died a little inside when that happened. No overclocking but was having temperature spikes with the cpu and GPU was hitting 80 while gaming at normal clocks with max fans. I should of went to a different reseller and spent the extra money there. My reseller said sorry this usually doesn't happen and we will get back to you. They didn't care about my situation at all...

    This is my worry. I have an extended warranty, but when my GTX1080 goes poof-- how willing will they be to replace it? Since I repasted it would they just blame me? My card had a glued black cardboard shroud around the GPU die. When cleaning the excess factory thermal paste, my ISO melted the glue and I had to remove the shroud. Did I void my warranty?

    80c on gpu and cpu while gaming is pretty much normal for an SLI setup on these laptops on stock cooling.

    Cant speak for single GPU cause i have dual. On Dual 80c during game play on heavy games is actually pretty cool. I get about 85c in really heavy games.
