    Update on my "gargling" CPU fan noise: I didn't mention that a few of the rubber feet on the bottom were coming out of place/ were already off (specifically the back ones near the fans and the little one in the middle) because I didn't feel that was part of the problem and I used a desk anyway ,so I didn't seem much haste in gluing them back on quickly. Last night, I set some epoxy on those that were out of place/ off and this morning the fan sound is clean as a whistle! I would have never thought that these were the cause of the issue, but maybe it can help someone out there who is experiencing similar troubles! Thanks for the help!

    Hi, I have same laptop (msi gs60 6qe - skylake 6700hq+ 970m) and I asked for upgrade from stock 128gb to samsung 950 pro nvme ssd and they (store) did it for me. As far as I know changing SSD rather than HDD is harder on msi 6qe because ssd is on "the other side" of motherboard- that was main reason why I ask them to change it for me. I'm not 100% sure but I think that I read that there are also some problems when installing NVMe ssd and windows (ssd wasn't recognised when installing windows).

    Good luck! :)

    At Computex MSI told GS63 with Pascal GPUs should come to market in October 2016.

    Some GS63 version with Maxwell GPU may come earlier (I think I have seen somewhere mentioned August?), but it doesn't really make sense to buy anything but Pascal.

    I see... well I hope they're on schedule. really looking forward to get this 15" notebook.
    i actually wanna go smaller and lighter with the MSI GS40 series, but since no update announced for that line, I guess 15" will do.

    I have the GS60 6QE which came with a 128GB M.2 and a 1TB HDD. I swapped out the 1TB HDD for a 480GB SSD. That was pretty painless, just a case of removing the bottom cover, disconnecting a ribbon cable and lifting out the old HDD. I watched a video on the M.2 replacement and it's a bit more involved but not too difficult from what I could tell.

    Does anyone know how easy it is to upgrade the memory? Mine shipped with 8gb. Would be nice to chuck another 8gb in there.

    it's a bit of a chore because the ram slots are on the other side and the only way to access them is by disassembling parts one by one. There's a youtube video for it (or maybe for MSI GS70, i forgot). But since GS60 and GS70 share similar layout with ram slots on the other side of the motherboard, i believe they share the same difficulty.

    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for a gaming laptop that is neither too big nor too heavy, hence I found the Ghost pro.
    However, there seems to be some issues with it and the battery life seems mediocre. What kind of battery life do you get for non-gaming stuff, like doing some word/excel, Chrome with some stuff in the background?

    All in all, would you recommend this laptop?
    I was also looking at the Razr ones, but they are very hard to find (if not impossible) in France.

    thanks!
