    You need to install 8.1 fresh, get it to activate and then upgrade to 10 to get it activated officially.

    Hi, my old desktop finally bit the dust and I have been looking around for a replacement. It was mostly used for general computer tasks while connected to my TV. I have decided to replace it and think it makes sense to replace it with a laptop. I would like the occasional portability. My gaming lately has been limited to an Xbox One, but I would like the option to run PC games. I have narrowed it down to the ROG 751 and the MSI GS60. I really like the GS60 (I can't imagine using the ROG to watch a movie on an air plane), but I'm concerned about the cooling intake being located on the top. My question is, has anyone checked temps with the top closed for general browsing, netflix, etc. I don't mind opening the laptop when gaming, but most of the time I would like it closed on a shelf in my media center.

    PS - I note that Gentech (and other sellers) occasionally post here and I would like to thank them for the genuinely informative and useful reviews posted on Youtube. They are a refreshing change from the normal "Unboxing the XXX" reviews. You guys are doing a great job and for me it definitely gives you an edge over buying from the "big box" guys.

    So far loving it and am happy I have the 256gb SSD over the 128gb. I think I got a good deal saw his receipt of nearly 2100 compared to the 1400 I paid. Is there a way to make the screen sharper in games? It doesn't look bad and is running at 1080p fine just looks soft compared to nice and sharp.

    Download (or look for) MSI True Color to adjust how the screen looks, lots of different settings to play with, as well as a "Gaming" screen setting

    Also make sure the resolution settings are correct and check which form of AA you are using.

    I know the laptop gets very warm with the lid closed and GPU (had an issue where it was trying to update while lid was closed). I think keeping it completely closed during light usage could work do to MSIs "Silent Fan" option, which allows you limit the fan top speed (this means that there must be some heat transfer without needing fans at predefined speed). With the CPU undervolted and GPU off, it does seem possible. I'll test later

    When the lid is closed, the heat can be trapped under therefore it's important to leave the lid opened so the heat does not bother us no more.

    Have you tried updating the wifi drivers to the latest ones? Looks like they just released the newest version on Aug 6th http://www.killernetworking.com/support/driver-downloads
