    Hey everyone i'm happy to announce I received my Blade today! I will do my best to answer questions about it. Hopefully this thread gets some traction so we can use is as an information thread/comparison thread. Post pictures when you get your Blade etc. Let the games begin! Blade 15.jpg

    Ditto, I want to know about the battery life and thermal performance as well. Also if the fans do ramp up how loud do they realistically get.

    I would love to see some unpacking and first boot pictures (the stuff we see online is very professional). I would like to see a real world experience of the unboxing. If you are brave enough also a picture of the interior of the blade !

  8. Congrats! Definitely most interested in thermals, acoustics (ear-level db readings) and throttling.

    A small question but can you tell us the max mhz RAM that can be used by this MOBO?
    what are the mhz by default?

    Also is it possible to turn off the razer logo on the back of the screen just like on the razer blade pro?

    as you owned a blade 14 an accoustic comparaison would be great. even just sharing your feeling regarding the noise level.

    I will absolutely stress test thermals and throttling. I don't have a way to test the db reading for acoustics but I will do my best to explain or even upload a video if need be.
    I will check about the logo and i will look into the RAM as well.

    Everyone hang in there Ill be starting my testing and taking some pics of the "unboxing" for you guys within the hour.

    Can’t you use your phone to do that? There’s a lot free dB meter Apps on Google Store or Apps Store. I usually measure mine with that and put the phone directly on laptops keyboard.
     
  12. Thank you so much! If you have an iPhone, SPLnFFT is a great db meter as is NIOSH SLM. There are probably ones for Android as well I'd think

    Can't wait! Thanks for doing this Firebat246. I am planning to acquire one myself once they reach the UK , so excited to see what you got!

    Edit: You posted few seconds before me! Thanks for the pictures! What a beauty! Couple of things more once you get the chance: how big/heavy is the battery charger? Is it a magnetic port like the macbook pros?

    Where’s power brick, did they forget to put it in;) Kiddo, how much bigger is it compared to Power Adapter from Blade 14?
     
  17. They made such a mistake with the placement of the arrow keys. They should all be in the extreme lower right hand corner with the RT SHIFT placed directly beside the ? key and FN beside RT CTRL. Can't believe they'd make such a bonehead choice :rolleyes:

    well, seems like small power brick is no more a thing for the Blade...

    It also is a 3 prong female to male plug. It does fit very snug and the cable is much more durable feeling than the old. Yes it's bigger but its also a 230w.
