    Also, it won't slow the other drive. And you'll likely experience better speed keeping the 128 gig drive that contains the OS in the 4 lane slot though.

    If anything you'd be better off getting a larger nvme drive when prices fall to replace your OS. Like with any SSD the larger they are the faster they can be under heavy use due to larger cache sizes.

    I don't have Windows pre-installed. Their 128gb was installed in the slot closer to the fan which, as you mentioned, is the 4x. I have HP EX920 1tb which I prefer to use for OS and I was wondering if I should have it in the empty slot or swap it with the samsung 128gb. I think yours came with the smaller battery. Unfortunately, RTX now only comes with the larger battery and I prefer to have the 2.5 SSD instead.

    Mine is a mech 17 with a 2070. I had them install the smaller battery per my request.

    But yes in your case it would definitely be a good idea to remove the Samsung nvme that came with the laptop and use your HP nvme drive.

    You could use the included Samsung nvme drive in the second slot until you get a larger game drive without issue. It will just run at sata read and write speed

    All new i7 9750h models with GTX 1650 up to a RTX 2080 at https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/category/gaming-laptops/
    https://www.eluktronics.com/MECH-17
    https://www.digitalstorm.com/gaming-laptops.asp
    Coming Soon at:
    https://www.maingear.com/custom/notebooks/pulse17/index.php
    https://www.opowered.com/laptops/
    CyberpowerPC:
    The Tracer III 17 Turbo and the Tracer III 17S Silm Models are the new models
    Both Windows Hello is standard with the IR/720p 30fps webcam.
    Both include the i9 9750h and the same shell and 5mm bezel design.
    Both have the same speakers (Possibility of another different audio chip with different drives than the last prev gen.)
    Both only have the 3 cell battery (you can buy a 4 cell with resellers but you will lose the HHD caddy)
    Both have the option of a 144hz (you will need to check out which models have the config enabled with it since cyberpowerpc likes to not put options to differ between number models)
    The Turbo has a membrane keyboard which is replaceable with a mechanical keyboard (Manufacture doesn't have the option on the website but it is possible if you want to as a future upgrade)
    The 17S's RTX 2080 is max-q (but most likely just vBIOS max-qified which means someone who want to go crazy could unlock the RTX 2080 and maybe get a higher TDP with some cooling upgrades either increase airflow and maybe upgrading the fans or finding a better paste/improve the contact with the heatsink to the die.
    The lower end models have a 150w (GTX) adapters, the mid-range gets 180w (RTX), the higher end will get a 230w (RTX 2080 max-q).
    Eluktronics:
    MECH-17 G1R has a 4 cell battery standard, 144hz standard, there is no RTX 2080 option
    Eluktronics has an option to for "EluktroBoost" which is increasing the TDP to the GPUs and overclocking them, similar like to moding the vBIOS for different speeds and watt limits.
    Digital Storm:
    i7 9750h + RTX 2070 MAX-P only.
    Maingear:
    Their stock isn't ready yet, most interesting about them is their PC subscription service you can look at here: https://www.maingear.com/solutions/edge.php They promise a new unit every 2 years.
    Overpowered:
    They expressed that their company is not dead and their new laptops units are coming around the June from the email responses. They still promise "good" pricing.

    Thanks for the help and that's a good idea to add another 1 tb M.2 since they are cheap now. I asked if they can add the smaller battery and they said it was out of stock at the time. I think they might have them now but it has to be requested. Very nice people to deal with.

    Interesting. The Mech 17 is cheaper now with the i7. I'm not sure how much better i9 is or if the cpu temperature will be an issue. I think this chassis can handle it. It will be interesting to see how much the 2080 MQ fares against 2070. Most likely they will be very close.

    And so the RTX 2080 finally arrives in this chassis! Paired with the i7-9750 it should wreak some serious havoc. But wait, it's max-q? Hmm, it's probably not worth it over the full RTX 2070. I think it's a situation of paying more for something with similar performance that runs slightly cooler (assuming lower wattage than the full 2070).

    @TheUberMedic Only at CyberpowerPC that I know of, but the 2070 from PCSpecialist is probably better. :)

    I've not been able to find any direct comparisons of 2070 max-p and 2080 max-q. But some benchmark results have let me to believe that the full 2070 is basically the same performance-wise.
