    You can only get one monitor at high fps from the 1x DisplayPort, and if you use a hub then you don't have sufficient bandwidth.
    Currently, only Thunderbolt 3 with full bandwidth can provide that kind of performance.

    Thank you for your help.

    Looks like the only devices i can use are thunderbolt dock adapters that will do a max refresh rate of 60hz.

    Does liquid metal provide better temperature than good silicone TM, since with the GS65 the limitation seems to be the heatsinks themselves?

    Depending on how factory TIM is done, some are good some are bad as in I've had video cards fresh from the factory that had good paste that a repaste of premium TIM did a little bit of a difference.

    Now typically with GS65:
    CPU stock -> Premium Paste -> 5-10C~ difference
    CPU stock -> Liquid Metal -> 10-20C~ difference

    Premium Paste -> Liquid Metal -> 5-10C~ difference

    GPU w/ Premium Paste -> Liquid Metal -> 5C~ difference.

    Considering the density of a CPU compared to a GPU, LM will benefit CPU more hence why some people just opt CPU for LM rather than both.

    Yes the heatsinks arent that great but in this case CPU benefits more from LM... at a risk of course and losing warranty.

    Edit: Yes while you'll still be limited with the heatsink/fans, the heat dissipation will be quicker and in turn you wont hear the fans screaming or jet mode on booting up. On games and high stress it will still ramp up but you'll see it hit around 60-70C rather than say 80-90C YMMV.

    The first thing I noticed when I went LM was there was no jet ramp up at boot up when I didn't turn on ThrottleStop yet, usually it becomes really loud till i turn on TS then it ramps down. Now you just hear a little bit of air then gradually goes down.

    My unit makes a similar sound. Weirdly enough, it stops when I unplug the laptop. Did you find any solutions to this?

    Coil whine is normal when components are under load so it's not really defective. Also, it is true that not all of them do it, and not everyone can hear it so you don't get such feedback (or possibly had been ignored if it's not severe).
    If you just got the unit you can check with the reseller to see if you can swap it out, otherwise you will be stuck with it for life.

    Just bought a gs65. I noticed that the right side lid is slightly bent/curved [​IMG]

    Nothing is wrong with the screen (no dead pixels, discoloring, etc). Just bent. Anyone else’s is like this?

    That might had been shipping-related. How did the cushion looked like when you first received it? Perhaps place the laptop back into the box to see how it looks like to get a better idea?
