    Optimus IX Review

    I'm gonna start this off by saying this laptop is great. Games run fantastic on it (e.g. with overwatch I get over 60fps at ultra 4K!). When it first arrived, however, it was slightly dodgy. There was a problem with the preinstalled control center which caused the laptop to freeze up and had to be force shut down. However, after reinstalling it from the provided disc with drivers and such, it worked fine. It's got a great build quality and took suprisingly little time from ordering to it being delivered to me. I would recommend pcspecialist to anyone looking for a gaming laptop.

    These are the specs that I went for:
    Chassis & Display Optimus Series: 15.6" Matte 4K IPS 60Hz 72% NTSC LED Widescreen (3840x2160)
    Processor (CPU) Intel® Core™ i7 Six Core Processor 8750H (2.2GHz, 4.1GHz Turbo)

    Glad the system is behaving now Thanks for the review and pics.

    How are the CPU and GPU temps under gaming load?

    No gaming laptop will be silent under load, it's just not possible. The fans ramp up under load and they're all quite noisy.
    LAPTOP: Vortex IV 17", i7 4700MQ, GTX 870m 6Gb, 24Gb Kingston HyperX 1600mHz, 250Gb Samsung Evo 850, 750GB WD Scorpio Black, Zalman NC-3500 Cooler
    DESKTOP: Homemade, Lian Li PC-09WX, Asus Z87 Pro, i7 4770K Stock, Corsair H100i V2, 24Gb Corsair Vengeance Pro 1600MHz Memory, Nvidia GTX 1080 FE OC modded with EVGA hybrid cooler, 500GB Samsung Evo 850 SSD, 2 x 3TB WD Red, Corsair K70 RGB, RAT 7 Mouse, Acer Predator XB281HK 4K GSync 60Hz, Dell S2716DG 1440p G-Sync 144Hz
    Lots of Corsair ML120 Pro fans lighting up the place and some RGB strips!

    I now have a notebook msi that is very silent in gaming mode. cpu and gpu are very frresh and the fans are at the minimum load. so i can play silently.
    now i have a i5 7300 and a 1050. it has 3 pipe for gpu and 3 pipe for cpu....

    but i want now an optimus IX with a 1060 but i had to choice between i5 8300 or i7 8750...
