MSI GT Series GT72 Dominator Pro G-1423 G-sync Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 5700HQ (2.70GHz) 32GB Memory 1TB HDD 512GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 8 GB GDDR5 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Latest mobile Intel 5700 HQ CPU
- Nvidia GTX 980M GPU w/ 8GB memory
- 32GB RAM
- 17" 1080P IPS display w/ G-sync
- m.2 SSD and SATA SSD support
- Ready for Win10
- Excellent audio quality (even has a subwoofer!)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a seriously high performance laptop MSI pretty much ranks at the top of the heap. The GT72 ranks #4 on the SIS Sandra 2015 laptop benchmarks (#1 is the MSI GT80 2QE).

Upgraded to Win10 with no drivers issues whatsoever. Boots insanely fast with the m.2 SSD OS RAID array. I use this laptop mainly for image analysis work. The display on the GT72 is gorgeous (can't say enough about the quality) and it's an IPS panel even though it isn't mentioned in the specs on Newegg. This is a fantastic desktop replacement if you can afford it. I especially like the support for up to 4 x m.2 SSDs for the OS. If you have the bucks it would be fun to load up all 4 m.2 slots with 480GB HyperX Predator drives

GIGABYTE GB-BXA8-5557 (rev. 1.0) AMD Bolton M3 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM AMD Radeon HD 8550G Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Compatible with WIndows and Linux (Ubuntu)
- Decent graphics performance for price
- built in Wi-Fi

Cons: - No dedicated graphics card (only integrated graphics)
- No USB 2.0 ports (only USB 3.0)
- No HD audio output (other than headphone jack and HDMI)

Other Thoughts: Installed Ubuntu 15.04 and using this to run Steam Linux games. Can easily run most games on medium to high settings. Note that when installing Windows 7 you need to disable USB 3.0 support in the BIOS in order to get USB mouse and keyboard support during installation since Win7 does not install the USB 3.0 host driver by default.

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent cooling performance for FX-9370 01/30/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm

Pros: - 140mm
- Closed loop
- Simple to install. Fits easily in cases designed for 140mm

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My FX-9370 CPU paired with ASRock 990FX Extreme 6 at idle is around 28C. Under full core utilization the temps only reach a max of 48C (measured with CoreTemp). Impressive.
