    Good eyes;) Bet it’ll be mentioned by dave2d if he reviews it.
    I like that feels way solid and well built than competitors. Sorry I can’t like it anymore today 5/5 already;)
    It is 230watt power brick bro, 20 Watt difference with on the Pro that powered GTX1080...with full of sweat;) Maybe 200watt on 1060 one will be smaller.

    What is that button looking thing on the top right side of the speaker grill? Im assuming its a power button but hoping it has a fingerprint sensor.

  4. I seriously doubt it's a fingerprint sensor but if indeed that is the power button I assume the speaker grills are some sort of cloth not rigid like prior Blades?

    The Ram is set at 2667 confirmed. I will let you know max once I figure it out. The logo CAN be turned off via synapse, and at idle the machine is pretty quiet. Again I'll get an app to see how much fans ramp up during heavy load.

    EDIT: 32gb Ram at 2667 is max motherboard will allow

    Legend. So tempted to get one but doesnt seem like itll hit australias shores till June.

    Also could you show how much wider it is conpared to the blade 14? I ask because I have a custom made laptop sleeve made to keep my blade 14 that has Very little wiggle room and I would like to know if the blade 15 would fit in there. Thank you

    He is just installing things, and answering this and that;) Be patient, battery test will take a while.

    thanks a lot. really appreciate that you take times to answer is.

    the logo off is at least a good start.

    edit: just to be sure this one should be a good option?

    if there is any other ram you would advice...

    These would be my choice when I decide to upgrade but yes the Crucial should work also.

    Just wanted to let you guys know that synapse has an option for game mode. What this actually does is OC your 1070. It adds +100 to core and +300 to memory when enabled.

    Yes another new features:), how about Fans profiles, is it still 3, low high balance? And is there any battery safety mode like using 60Hz for better battery life like on Razer Phone...okay that’s all for now, if I continue you’ll finish testing maybe next week;)

    Can’t wait to see the thermals, it’d be great if the disastrous cooling of previous blades is finally solved!

    Thursday is my game night...so i'm gonna have to take a break for now. I will say i hopped in Farcry 5 and while it ran great the CPU was hitting 90s often. The GPU stayed below 80c. I'm going to upload a video later and look into CPU thermals. I will also end up undervolting the CPU but for now ill test stock voltage.

    Hey man, congrats on the new Blade! Can you check for light bleed on the display? Razer's FHD displays are notorious for light bleed as well as a weak seal for the bezels and display panel. There is a pretty big gap on the bottom bezel of my Blade 2017, which is annoying since dust gets in.

    Hopefully everything else about it is great!

    Thanks for the update, can't wait to see the results! Hopefully there's some more when I wake up in about 8 hours :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I must say, I'm not impressed with it hitting 90 often, would've expected better. My preliminary verdict is that the new vapor chamber and high end thermal materials, etc. is nothing more then marketing fluff. Hope you can prove me wrong though!

    No gaps anywhere... very minimal light bleed at the bottom of the screen but its absolutely acceptable. Thanks! I'll have more data soon.

    Just hope you don't suffer the same fate as the other guy who got his today. His died and he had to RMA already
