Pros: Superb frame rates in games. I was able to overclock it beyond the standard turbo settings and keep it under 72C. Anything 73C and up seems to crash the game i'm running. The keyboard is fantastic. Thin and light enough for me to toss it in my backpack and carry it with me everywhere. To achieve those temps you'll need cooler booster on which is significantly louder. Don't expect to leave it in auto while gaming. However, I comfortably play using the built in speakers or if you use bose noise canceling headphones you can't hear the fans at all.
Cons: The 8 core i9 can run quite hot under load but i've still seen it boost clocking to 4.4ghz. I suspect the i7 might run cooler and allow a little higher GPU temps if you don't need the extra cores. That said I don't regret my purchase. I wanted the best thin and light on the market and I feel like this absolutely is. The power brick (while slim for its 230w) is pretty big and heavy. I'm hoping with the new wave of GaN chargers coming out that perhaps a more compact one will be available in the future.
Overall Review: Love this laptop to death. I had the GS65 which was phenomenal but I wanted to step up to the 17" display and I was not disappointed. Incredibly happy with this. It easily runs everything I throw at it especially Overwatch.
Pros: bought this Gaming lap top 4 months ago I charged the batts left it plugged in, loaded EQ and it hasn't been shut down from that time until now other than updates. This is just what I expected from MSI.
Cons: The only con here is, that I couldn't afford to buy one for my hubby (made me feel just a little bit guilty) guess ill just have to learn how to live with myself, blink.
Overall Review: would recommend this product and any MSI product to anyone anytime.
