    HIDevo has a good reputatation let us know when you get it in. My top two recommendations are to undervolt the CPU and split the raid. If you call Razer support after getting the blade they will send you a win10 USB drive for free to re-image with.

    Noticed the premium for HIDevolution RBP V2 over razer' website.

    What extra features/service are you getting?

    I'm having HID split the raid. The rest is going to be left alone. Curious to see if kaby lake is more thermally efficient than skylake.

    good luck with telling people not to chime in about the "1080 being a 1070." Pretty much gave up on the Blade Pro Owners lounge because of those people.

    For the 2017/2016 RBP you must own the Notepal U3+ aluminum laptop stand which is extremely effective at allowing fresh air intake from the bottom of the laptop and dispersing heat. I bought a few different plastic stands that fit well enough but did not actually reduce temps sustainably.

    Without a stand the RBP does fine but for long sessions of gaming or cpu intensive tasks having a laptop stand is a good idea.

    With our without the fans attached it will keep it much cooler and lessen fan noise overall for $35.

    If I play games like Street Fighter V for a long time, do I still need a stand?
