    Hello,

    I am thinking of getting this laptop from NCIX Canada as it seems to be the only online reseller in this country that I can get it from. The only problem is that they do not have any in stock at the moment. I don't need it until the fall so it's not a huge issue.

    Since this would be my first Gigabyte laptop/computer and I am buying it online, I am a little hesitant that I will not like it and there is a no return policy for NCIX for notebooks.

    I don't think the heating or fans noise would be an issue for me as I won't be pushing it very hard.

    Are there any major issues with this laptop that I should be aware of? How is the layout and responsiveness of the keyboard? I'm sure all of the positives of this laptop will outweigh the negatives and I will get used to things that are different than my current laptop.

    Thanks in advance.

    Playing Minecraft using the Intel GPU made it crash. Lowering down to -65 mV. Hope that's the last drop I'll need.

    Alright, so -65 mV was broken by GTA IV. It took awhile though, so I'm assuming I'm reaching the sweet spot. Dropping down to -62.5 mV. On another note, you can play Minecraft on max settings using just the integrated Intel GPU at almost always 30+ FPS; CPU temperature hovers at around 65 °C (undervolted integrated GPU by 50 mV; will try to go lower on that), so the fan noise was light.

    Does anyone have the GS60 Ghost Pro to compare this to? How are the temps under load?

    It would be great if you could benchmark Far Cry 3 and Tomb Raider:D

    Cheers.

    Could you (or anyone else) tell us a bit more about fan/noise performance. I know you've talked about max db but generally how do they run?

    I had a MSI GS60 for a brief amount of time but the fan was always on and loud. I've read that there are some basic fan profiles (stealth, auto etc) but how loud is it when it generally runs. Is there ever a time when's it's actually silent?

    Thanks in advance,
