    Yes, but point was it will run hotter clock for clock, but being power limited that's is not much of a problem outside of tuning for noise.

    Weird no one have mentioned this awkward back to the past or the 1990s for the new and shiny... I wonder why Clevo cheaped out on the built-in PC Camera for Clevo X170: Go from 2.0M on older models down to 1.0M specs on their latest and greatest isn't exactly progress when we now are in 2020's. Less is more is the golden rule nowadays. Same way as they removing ssd slots. Sad direction.

    See also... It's 2020 and laptops still have 1 MP cameras. What gives?

    See also... Modern times. Thin instead for Thickness (Thin branding is a must to be able to sell, lool). Yeah, nice. Almost as a promo from Apple.

    An unrelated question for the experts. With ambient at 25C the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with the factory cooler achieves around 80W-85W with fan on max (1890RPM) and temps mid-90s and freq at 3.8GHz out of max 4.2GHz. It seems to me rather hot to run at 95C - can anyone please advise me on this? Considering we can extract up to 110W of heat from the much smaller i9-8950 inside the laptop and with a much smaller heatsink and much smaller fans, I cannot understand why my Ryzen is getting so hot. Maybe the factory cooler is crap? But then why would they even bundle it inside the CPU box?

    Wrong thread. This is the one you’re looking for: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/xmg-apex-15-with-ryzen-3950x.832568/

    Memory OC is looking quite good on the 10900K, so that's neat.

    Yeah, it's nice have something to fall back on when the Cpu o'clock headroom is almost nowhere. Not all will be able to push all cores equal max single/two core boost. And I don't talk about in laptops. All we have left is Memory OC'ing:D

    I'm not really too concerned about thermals. I mean, for overclocking purposes a 10700k is probably going to be better than a 10900k and a 10700k is basically a 9900k. If you could fit one of those in clevos last 17 inch chassis without crazy temps, why would this one with a higher cooling capacity struggle to cool it? Not to mention, the k series CPUs basically come pre lapped.

    I'm no expert, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    We talk more about the 10 core flagship chips:) A different animal than the 8 core chips. Remove +250w heat is a thought task even for air cooled desktops.
