Looking for a Laptop: Budget 2000 - Page 4

post #31 of 40
I haven't looked into the temps on that model until now. It is a desktop CPU, so I'd expect it to be a bit warmer than mobile.

http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/official-clevo-p75xdm-and-p77xdm-sager-np9758-g-and-np9778-g-batman-2-0-owners-lounge.776183/page-204#post-10133451

...as mention past this post, it was a stock fan profile and no undervolting.

At 318 pages, the thread may provide solutions or better results in it elsewhere.

Yeah I had been reading through that thread over the past few days. It seems that biggest issue is the panel which can be determined upon arrival and inconsistent performance because of the bios used which is why everyone is sending prayers to prema lol

Otherwise it looks great overall lol

Are there BGA CPU's with an MXM GPU? Admittedly I havent had too much time to dive further because of daily upkeep in life but just curious if anything comes to mind. 6820HK with MXM with be a killer combo aligned to my interests. I like the P770DM for sure, but if I can get rid of the extra heat dump to allow the GPU more headroom then thats what I want to chase down. Closest I have seen are possible eGPU solutions oddly but that would only be preferable to home I guess...

Sager 8658/8678, 97758/9778 I'm pretty sure are MXM, and of course the MSI GT72. Alienware probably has something too.

Did you repast the heatsink when you got it?

I'm discouraged from the A18r2 as the only reason I want it is for 980m sli and even if I get it working it's hardly a portable machine after that. I would have to do the 2x 330w mod to get its full potential.

That's the other thing worth noting. I want to be able to push what ever I get to the max, so I'll likely be getting a 330w psu and modding just about everything from cooling to bios if I can get the support.

I don't mind 15.6 it's easier to carry around but 17.3 really isn't too much difference to me.

A18 doesn't have dual 330w mod

Only the 18R1 and 18R2 has dual 330w possible

Going with i5 6600k will just about let you get what you want with a 970m 6GB or a 980m 8GB and you'll have to deck it out after-market to stay in your budget now.

...plus there's Prema for modded BIOS/vBIOS.

Don't get anything that has a soldered CPU/GPU like most disposable trashtops nowadays

Fully aware. Preaching to the choir on your first note.

As for the second one not sure If I'd go that far.

The first one is BGA / BGA and the second is the Socketed / MXM

Yeah, I fully disagree with the second statement there. Soldered machines aren't trash in the slightest. If anything, soldered machines have a higher potential for longevity.

Certainly have their disadvantages of not being able to upgrade later on, however you exchange that for a much thinner profile of the machine.

Its a pro / con thing.

also I checked the models mentioned before please see the updated post that i ninjaed before imglidiminhere lol

Came out to 1913 for me.

Not sure if Eurocom sells in the U.S.? Is there one?
