    I have the 15" inch version (I7-10875H 2070 super Max-P 32GB Tongfang GM5MPHY) sold in The Netherlands Europe but it it the exact same version sold by many other OEM's world-wide (Schenker, Sager, Eluktronics, PCSpecialist, Mechrevo, Evoo, Overpowered. My opinion sofar:

    - MSI After burner works perfect and gets to a 2000+ safe overclock

    - Beast and gaming settings works okee, but do not keep their settings on reboot

    - Fans seem less loud then Clevo versions

    - Temps are fine under ultra Ray Tracing DLSS settings. Battlefield 5: CPU 89 and GPU 70 (artic paste cooling)

    - Chassis got warm and during first session it bend so that it became unstable, had to bend it back again (Plastic bottom cover issue ?)

    - Using Elutronics Control Center: Who developped this package? As every OEM distributes their own version i.e Mechrevo, Eluktronics, PCspecialist, Sager, Schenker etc.)

    - Feels much better that Clevo models

    - Windows NVIDIA geforce Windows version issue is not BIOS problem but driver. This version fixed that issue for me: https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5022 Just deinstall all NVIDIA drivers (DDU) and perform a clean install with this version 445.98

    - Intel driver & support assistant also work and intel graphics driver also updated to a higher version

    -XTU: 120w boost and 120w peak boost also after reboot.

    Summary: Best gaming and office laptop I have seen and worked with sofar.

    Thanks @KVDNL

    * Have you bought it from laptopparts4less? Did you opt for their thermal paste upgrade or did you do it yourself?

    * The Eluktronics Control Center works on non-Eluktronics models? Good to know.

    * How's the audio? normal laptop bad or bad laptop bad?

    * How long does your battery last for light office work, movies etc?

    * How is fan control? Can you work silently when needed?

    * Which Clevo models did you have before?

    I'm also looking at exactly the same laptops you mentioned at the bottom. Both the new xmg neo 15 and the pc specialist one. I'm in UK so I will probably get the UK one. Its just very hard to make the choice because some don't provide enough information. The German xmg neo 15 one provides glass touch pad and 64gb ram possibility and the battery can be replaced.
    The pc specialist recoil iv has 94mah battery compared to 93mah, it also is made of aluminium (not sure if that's the same on xmg), and has the Intel 10th gen 8 core compared to the 6th core on the xmg neo 15.

    So hard to choose! I really wish someone could review both these models!

    Stay tuned, I think @B0B is finetuning a review? Also check out the MECH and MAX threads here on the forum, users of the new models may post their experiences there.
