    $2499.99 (16GB 512GB) is cheaper than I thought but they have a 2999.99 (32GB 1TB)

    Which versions of tests you used. I will do the same to share results. I have much less screen bleeding, but try to understand performance of my unit... notebookcheck.net showing 28000 in 3dmark 11 in 720p (free version I think). My did 20000

    For owners that actually own this laptop, how loud do the fans get when gaming? Temps?

    Not as loud as previous gaming laptops I have used. CPU temps are pretty much the same as other i7-8750H-equipped laptops. GPU temps (RTX 2080 Max-Q) are very nice and low actually.

    One thing I have noticed is that the CPU temps seem to spike quite high when idling, but it’s not a major issue. Perhaps it’s only something affecting my particular unit. Overall, it’s a great laptop so far.

    Did you try undervolting? If so did it help with temps?
    Is the 180W power supply sufficient? Some reviews say it is some don’t .
    Have you run into any issues power throttling?
