    I have the 15" and leave it sitting flat and it's been just fine. It does get alot cooler if propped up, so he says is true, but even flat the temps are within the typical range for the 8750h.

    Eventually I might try to fabricate some sort of stand to attach to the bottom to lift up the back a mm or two. It sounds like that's all thats really needed if you go by the fan pitch change. But, as for now, I'm perfectly fine with it being flat.

    Sure there's thermal throttling, but it depends on the game and generally only happens sometimes with the stock voltage. With a good undervolt it should rarely occur.

    I’ve never had thermal throttling. Then again I keep my profile at entertainment and not max performance so my cpu is only pulling 45 watts. Also when I’m playing games like the Witcher 3 I lock it at 60fps because honestly I can’t tell the difference really between 60-100 and the fans stay quieter. I might even change it to be a max of 72 in the nvidia control panel and disable gsync.

    Maybe I am looking in the wrong place but I can't find the Clevo PB70ED-G / PB71ED-G anymore on Clevo.com.

    If it is not there anymore would that mean anything?

    They've replaced by the 9th gen i7 versions. Strange the 17" isn't listed though.

    They may not have it finalised yet.

    I have been playing BFV for a while now, minding temps on control center.
    80+ on the cpu, without tinkering, with stock paste, as well as using optimized settings from Nvidia.
    Very pleased.
    Years ago I thought I was the stuff with my 980m....lol.
    By the way, as my old rig, I purchased my new Sager from Midern.
    Question....Is there a break-in time on thermal paste? My temps have improved over a short time.
    Also, as previously stated, I have a fanned pad under the machine. I don’t think the pad’s fans help except to chase away heat radiated to the lower case, but why not employ it? The airflow design of this new case is far superior to my old Clevo 377 so I use low fan speeds on my pad. Probably just a placebo effect, but if it reduces temps by one or two degrees...content with that.
    I am really happy with this build.
