    Use it for a few days. Make sure you don't hear any weird noises other than the fan, watch for freezing and stuttering, and don't update the laptop with the RBS software on Razers site. Then stress test it with Prime95 using torture test>blend. Let it run for a few hours. Fan will come on and off during this process so don't worry about that. You should get no errors within the test period. I wouldn't run prime95 for 12-24 hours like some would recommend but you can.

    I like the razer blade stealth, but i still dont know what kind of dedicated graphics it has without the core.

    Hi I am not sure if this is normal but my new stealth makes noise occasionally. It is not a very loud and uncomfortable noise but it is annoying. It sounds like something clicking or scratching inside, does sound like mechanical drive running. Thanks.

    I really wouldn't get this. Why? Because it will end up really expensive and has terrible specs (graphics card). First off if you only want it for work, ignore this post. But if your gamer don't even think you will be able to take it places and play games. And you won't even be able to have desktop graphics with out paying a lot more money. The razer core doesn't come with the graphics cards in it. It's only a case which means you still have to buy a graphics card. Lets say that the stealth costs $1000. Then an extra $500 dollars for the razer core and then if you want a GTX 1080 (like me) it will cost around $1000. That's $2500 and it could possibly be more. That's a rough estimate. That's my opinion. I wouldn't get this

    I think the idea behind this is 'feature proofing' by using its partially modular design, rather than replacing the entire unit with the GPU soldered on, you just have to upgrade the GPU card.
     
  13. 1. No...not recommended until it is unavoidable ( with Win10 Pro, you can delay it).
    2. Never tried.
    3> Yes...that's what I am doing, with the assistance of a USB-C dock.

    From what I've been hearing all of them do this. Even mine. Putting your ear slightly northwest of the center of the keyboard is where it's coming from. Once i swap out my killer network card for the intel I'll see if I can find the exact location of the noise
     
  15. Mine never made those sounds when running Prime95 for several hours. Only thing I heard was fan sound.

    Good to hear. Guess it's not all. I have a few friends with the new 7th gen i7 RBS's and all of them make this odd noise. Some more than others

    It doesn't make that sound all the time... occasionally... and you have to be really focused to listen to it. Last night i got the anniversary update. so far so good.

    Mine makes the sound and it's audible even a few feet from the machine. Also the temperature even while just surfing likes to hang around 50-60 degrees (using both realtemp and coretemp). 3D gaming is usually about 80, but even at 70 the actual laptop casing gets pretty hot. Funnily while watching certain flash vids the temp goes to 90 which no game so far does. What temps does everyone else get?

    Does ANYONE know when the new razer blade stealth launch in Australia? I've been searching everywhere but I can't seem to find anything. Also, the razer core hasn't even been released yet in Australia and I'd like to know when that will come out.
    P.S an estimate would be good too or even better, a specific date.

    Well, here we are. It's October now, i.e. Q4 2016. Not only is the Stealth not out in the UK, but there's also still no news about it whatsoever. Right now I'm just incredibly glad I bought the Surface Book a few months ago rather than try and wait for the release of the Stealth in hopes I could use it as my primary work/gaming laptop.

    I'll probably just reiterate that it's not necessarily the speed of release that's making me indignant, it's just the complete lack of information. Razer you're releasing a massive number of revised and new products on what seems like a monthly basis! Surely you could spend just ten minutes on a press release to let us know what your plans for the UK/Europe are?
