    Wait for it. The 870m is a really hot GPU. The 970m is cooler and these have been proven by the various video reviews of MSI GS60's side-by-side comparison of the same laptop but with 970m and 870m on each side. I'm pretty sure it will be the same for P35.

    If you don't need the video performance, go for the P35W v3 with 970m. Don't go for the P35X with 980m as it usually 300 dollars more expensive in the various sites that have them in pre-order listing. The 970m has surpassed last generation's flagship 880m in terms of performance so it should be plenty strong enough.

    Do all of them! Haha.

    But seriously tho, im interested in the p35x v3 with the gtx 980m, which should have similar or lower temps than the v2 with the gtx 870m :)

    A GPU with twice the power (well, 100 W vs. 125 W) can be running at a lower temperature? I now sort of feel cheated by NVIDIA. :p

    Is there a backslash next to the left-shift key? Some models seem to have the backslash while others don't.

    Anybody playing Dragon Age: Inquisition on their v2? I am wondering what settings people are using.

    I've been following this thread well, thanks for everyone's efforts
    As I browsed through, however, I wasn't able to find comparison between P35W v2 and P25W v2
    They resemble in specs pretty much (GTX 870M 6GB, Core i7 etc. etc.)
    however structure-wise it seems P25W, given it's thicker and larger ventilation design can do a better job dissipating the heat than the thinner P35W.
    Can anyone give me a link or tests to see if this be the case?

    Ugh, my friend just got the Gigabyte P35w v2 from XoticPC and her screen looked horrible. Luckily, I have a Gigabyte P35K which I know has an IPS screen. So we use the program HWiNFO64 to see what kind of panel we have. Lo and behold, I have an LG LGD03A5 IPS panel where she has a Chi Mei CMN15B9 TN screen. Seriously pissed off and just sent an RMA for exchange.

    Anybody having ethernet problems since upgrading BIOS? Since I upgraded to version FB0C / F008 my ethernet would not work after plugging it in when I have already been using wifi. Ethernet shows no DNS and if I try to disable / re-enable I will get a BSOD. I've tried upgrading the Realtek ethernet controller drivers to the most recent version, but that didn't help.

    In case anyone is still watching this thread, I have gathered a list of URLs to download driver/software updates that go beyond what the Gigabyte Smart Update program has. For some Intel drivers, it's easier to just use the Intel Driver Update Utility.
