    I use a P51 and this machine, while good for all my current use, is only able to cool off the core i7 7700HQ barely, and on 90's degrees, so it's at its limit. Any "hotter" or higher end CPU will definitely throttle. It simply does not have the cooling performance, as the heatsink, fan and vents are just small/inadequate.

    If you do have the money, I would definitely consider the MSI Workstation series.

    Hello, I just received GS65 (037) locally and want to RAID couple of 1TB NVMe SSDs. But I don't see the option in the BIOS, including the latest April version. I looked under Advanced->SATA Mode Selection and that only has ACHI and Intel RST w/ Optane Acceleration.

    Is is under another/hidden menu, or need a different BIOS?

    Thanks, but I have IRST installed by default and there's nothing there. The online documentation said first step is to enable from BIOS, which is missing. MSI has a YouTube video on setting up RAID, and it also refer to choosing such option in BIOS' "Advanced -> SATA Mode" menu.

    So I am hoping it just a matter of enabling somewhere, or MSI can supply a RAID version of BIOS. It will really disappoints and angers me if MSI only has it in the 068 model, which forces me to buy two 512GB SSDs while I want greater storage.

    I currently have the stock SSD that comes with the 037 configuration (Best Buy), and that's a Samsung 512GB SATA SSD. I will only buy 2 1TB NVMe SSDs if I can RAID them.

    Perhaps the bios won't show you the option without a second drive there to put into raid?
