    Yea, but just a heads up HDMI still goes through Intel and the DP goes directly to the Nvidia card which allows you to use g-sync and get less stuttering in some games + generally a little boost in gpu performance. ( For @ptgamer88 )

    ++ This might sound weird but getting a 2560x1440 monitor might be a better idea as in most scenarios the CPU is bottle-necking the frames on the 1080p panel, you will get same frames in a lot of scenarios if you go with 1440p.

    I'm a bit reluctant with Kryonaut, I've used it a lot before and it has a strange behaviour of completely drying out within a few weeks/months, not entirely sure what it does with temps. Dow Corning toothpaste under Intel CPUs behaves similarly, when delidding a 7920X it was completely dry after like 2 months of usage.

    Regarding the panel, I'd still opt for a higher refresh 1080p than 1440p 60Hz.
    That said I've been spoiled with high refresh rate screens for years already - pg279q, FX349FJEW, GK950F and now the latest PG349Q @ 120hz. I just can't stand 60Hz anymore for action gaming and racing.

    Honestly I don't think a 9750h is bottlenecking a 2080 a lot when uncorked at let to run at ~4GHz but it needs proper cooling, that's the biggest challenge yet.

    That is weird, I have never faced that issue as I have finished a couple of those 11.1gm on my, friends and family laptops and desktops (Specially my desktop I didnt repaste for almost 2 years and when I finally did and cleaned it up it was still gooey not as fresh as it was but it was much better than the condition I used to find the MX-4 in.

    Maybe you got a bad patch (Bad storage?)

    My bad my point was not clear enough regarding the 1440p monitor, the 9750h is a bottleneck at very high frames (Specially in coreclock dependent games) as if you can test on a 1440p you will find that you are getting the same fps in a lot of scenarios.
    What I wanted to recommend is a 1440p 144hz monitor as you will still get the same performance with better quality

    My GS75 can handle it no problem so the GE75 should too. IF you use liquid metal.

    With all cores at 4ghz and running prime 95 small fft + unigine heaven 4.0 extreme I max out at 88°C cpu and 82°C gpu at max fans

    Running prime 95 only I max out at 82°C

    Yeah at stock it hits tjmax the second you hit "start" on any stress test, similar situation in games.
    I won't be going with LM because it alloys and needs reapplying.

    Hey would you mind sharing what model of samsung RAM you have at 3200? Thinking of upping the 2666 they shipped with it to 3200.

    Nice temps btw. I get about 85c with the 8 core, but at about 3.6 ghz.

    Whenever that happens on any chip that means the heat isnt getting to the heatsink properly. Are you going to repaste? I recommend kryonaut if your nervous about LM

    Ah, it's C-Die then. I thought they were low bin B-Dies. The 3000 and 3200MHz Ripjaws are Hynix C-Die and I can confirm these work fine.
    i could tinker with the OEM sticks but didn't want the hassle, loaded 3000MHz XMP and it just works.

    I will repaste my GE75 for sure but I'm still waiting for K5 PRO TiM for thermal pads. It's not that I'm reluctant with liquid metal, I just know that in the end it wil sc...w up the heatsinks anyway.

    Just picked up one of these at Costco online, looking forward to having a laptop again! My old MSI died after about 6 years and I never replaced it.

    Any recommendations on setting up the laptop other than a good undervolt?

    Costco build is:
    9750H / 2060
    512gb SSD + 1TB HD
    16gb ram
    Free 2 year warranty, plus 2 more years with Costco credit card
    $1400

    Not a bad price for the 2060!

    Thats a good pair. I'd unlock the cpu using the advanced bios and have it run at 4ghz all core, the thermal solution is the same for the 9880h, so with 2 fewer cores you should be able to ride 4 ghz all day. Lots of people have done it here. Should have pretty nice thermals and wattage room to breathe with a 2060, hopefully its a good overclock-er for you. Maybe someone else can answer here, I don't know what the wattage limit is on the 2060 variant. On the 2080 its 150 watts.
