    I am looking for a new laptop. One option is P950HP6 with i7 8750H and gtx 1070 max q. I like to play on my lap, what are the temperatures in this thing when we use grizzly liquid metal paste and some undervolting? Are they acceptable? How does noise and temperatures compare to let's say P751zm - my actual machine.

    So my system gets really warm (CPU).. peaks at 100c.. I've send the laptop back to the store where i bought it. They repasted and said it sits around 92c which is ok for this system but when I'm home it goes straight up to 100c in just 5 minutes of playing.. So what i tried: undervolt the cpu with -0.115v, disabled turbo boost. Repasted with Artic Silver 5 and now I've Thermal Grizzly Kyronaut applied and still hits 100c.. (without Turbo Boost enabled 96c) the only thing what i could do know is try Liquid Metal.. Is this normal for this laptop?

    PS: Room temps 22c, I play on a wooden desk doesn't really matter where I put the laptop. Should I put it in the fridge for lower temps? :eek:

    Let me know what your temps are.

    Okay, I need some help guys...

    I'm in the market for a new Sager/Clevo to replace my current daily driver, the NP9752. I've always been an xoticpc customer, and when looking for the newer, lighter sager designs I keep seeing the clevel p95xxx series, but I can't seem to find much info here in the forums for the sager 8954 or 8955, which are supposedly both based on the Clevo p955ER?

    The big difference, from what I can see, in the two is the screen. Both are 1080p, but the 8954 is 120hz TN panel, the 8955 is 144hz ips. Is there a huge difference in the screen quality from what you guys know from previous models? That's my only gripe on my NP9752...the screen was awful, ghosting and blurry!

    I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but the only other thread I thought to check would be the xoticpc reseller thread, but the sales reps haven't really been able to help me at all.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, I pulled the trigger on this laptop. I'm trying to replace the HDD with an SSD, but I'm having some trouble removing the bottom panel. I remove the 11 screws from the bottom panel, but it doesn't want to come off even after some light prying. I'm hesitant to apply more force, so I'd like to know - am I missing something beyond the 11 visible screws on the bottom panel?

    I have a P950HR with 1070 Max-Q undervolted with -0.125V for both CPU and GPU… Max temp is at around 84°C when playing Rise of the Tomb Raider at 25°C room temp.

    The standard differences between TN and AVHA/IPS apply

    TN = faster response time, worse viewing angles
    IPS = slower response time, better viewing angles

    It depends what you are sensitive to and what you want to do with the machine.
