    Thanks for all the updates!

    At the moment my shortlist is down to two, Scar 733 or the Alienware X17, it's nice to read that even though it's not the best, the stock thermal of the X17 returns nice temperature results.

    I see that all these benchmarks are with the 3080, does the 3070 run cooler or it makes things worse since the GPU is less powerful and the CPU will end up doing more work, getting hotter as a result?

    I guess Ultrabookreview's Zephyrus S17 unit is not perfectly repasted. It should be clearly capable of doing more. It is currently doing 90W at 89C in Cinebench, and heck, even my Zephyrus S15 2020 with the same liquid metal and inferior cooling system used to do 90W at 85-87C on the CPU with ease in Cinebench.

    The S17 they have is fine. When they just stress the CPU only running Cinebench while pulling ~90W it hits 87-88C. You can look at it in their benchmarks.

    When you only stress test the CPU the temperatures are just fine, but when you start combining thermal loads on both the CPU+GPU you start seeing the limitations of the cooling solution. Asus did an admirable job with the S17, but it still has its limitations in combined workloads. That's most likely the reason why they limited the the GPU to only 125W+15W.

    Anyone willing to upload S17 3080 16GB vBIOS dump?
    533/733 Users are dying to test it :p

    Laptop j11 (now Red Gloves) seems to have the Zephyrus S17 with better QC, as far as thermals go. He was doing like 80C at 90W in solo cpu loads, also temps were cooler at 76C on the gpu in manual mode, room temps being 27C which is actually a worst case scenario. I'm guessing Ultrabookreview got a slightly below average unit in terms of the thermal paste application etc.

    Is there any way you can overclock the i9-11900H with it being locked?
