    A rattling sound from a new laptop is not normal in my experience. If its a new laptop, I'd be contacting the seller for a replacement.

    Was from the Best Buy sale, they seem to be sold out everywhere now so unlikely I'd be able to get a replacement anytime soon. It is very minor, not particularly annoying or worrisome. It's like a slight ticking that happens for a few seconds, goes away for a few seconds and then returns.

    I was able to fix the noise by removing the bottom cover, pressing a bit on each of the two GPU fans, and putting it back together. Haven't heard any rattling/clicking since.

    For those of you guys that have the 8750H, I FINALLY found the PERFECT CPU clocks for the best performance with low temps. This should also apply to the 9750H users as well.
    In my testing, 3.2GHz all core turbo is the sweet spot, then 3.4GHz 3-4 core and 3.6GHz 2 and 1 core.
    At 3.2GHz, I was benchmarking the exact same FPS at the 3.9GHz profile (Shadow of the Tomb Raider and FF15 at highest preset detail. Lower quality settings will yield lower FPS since most games will rely on the CPU over the GPU).
    Since I wasn't losing FPS, I also decided to lower my fan profile to the following on both CPU and GPU:

    Level 1 - 0%
    Level 2 - 60%
    Level 3 - 70%
    Level 4 - 75%
    Level 5 - 80%
    Level 6 - 100%

    Temps at max load at 3.2GHz is now 71c for both the CPU and GPU at 80% fan speed.

    My benchmark numbers in the "Long Term Review" are exactly the same with this new 3.2GHz profile.

    Hope this helps, good luck!

    Thanks for sharing your results.

    Can you clarify what you mean by max load? Did you mean when gaming or when running stress tests?

    From benching and gaming. I didn’t run anything like prime95 + furmark so I guess “max load” was misleading. My bad.
