    It’s probably due to an inconsistent application of thermal paste… Or really cheap thermal paste to begin with... I cannot imagine it’s the heat pipe itself, as we are just really talking hey series of metal tubes… Very unlikely that any of them would be blocked.

    I would recommend looking on YouTube and you will find a tutorial on removing the entire heat sink apparatus and reapplying thermal paste... it does not look hard.

    Also people have a great deal of luck with using a tool/program called throttle stop to keep the CPU and GPU from getting excessively hot while still maintaining High performance.

    Do you have a link from where you got the installers for the control center and bios (i presume i can get the Nvidia control panel directly from Nvidia's website)?

    So the 17" 2060 is cheap right now right? This laptop also features "eluktroboost" type tech?

    The 15.6 1650 model is $650, i7-9750H, 16gb, 256gb SSD. The 1660ti model is $899 with a 512gb SSD. But at that point I should probably just get the 17" RTX 2060 with the 1tb SSD for only $100 more.

    Opinions, please?

    With a +150 OC, the 2060 on this laptop clocks and performs like an average desktop 2060. However, the keys are pretty bad, worse than the keys on the OP 15 and 17 inchers. If performance is all you care about I'd definitely get the 2060 one.

    How are the keys any worse if it's the same laptop? Did they change the keyboard in addition to the newer cpu/gpu?

    I think I read somewhere that the original OP-branded models had membrane keyboards, while the new ones are mechanicals.

    How does a mobile 1650 compare to a desktop RX580 4gb? That's my baseline, and if it can get within 10-15% of the RX580, I'd be happy. I mainly want good FPS in WoWS, STO while not at home. Maybe some of the latest AAA games at lower settings.

    The keys on this had louder, clickier switches and are noticeably more spongy. It's most likely a quality control reason with EVOO.

    Both 15" and 17" OP laptops had mechanical keys, and only the EVOO 17" has mechanical keys this time. The OP keys were a much better experience to use.

    Well, I'm leaning a little towards the EVOO 15" with the 1650. That model doesn't have the mechanical keyboard?

    The keyboards on these are the same as the OP models.
