Do keep in mind that the gunmetal paint on those Mechrevo Z2 units (also available as the MechaNike F117 Break in what looks like an even lighter shade of silver) MIGHT help it dissipate heat better then the Onyx (even though the bottom is still black across all 3 versions). Theoretically, anyway.

But Furmark 80/70 sounds about rite, at least according to the "back-of-my-hand thermometer" I had while testing the sample. Also, if it ever gets too hot for you there's always the "panic-button": The full speed fan override next to the power.

That said, I couldn't help but wonder how a full 1070 would actually do IF it ever ends up inside an Onyx. Maybe 80-90 under full Furmark, sans any UV or repasting?

Oh and the speakers in the Onyx are not bad TBH. At the very least, they ARE better than the ones on the S5X, but don't expect Harman/Kadon levels of bass or anything from them.

Read the reviews of mechrevo Z2 and while I became excited with Onyx, I disappointed with one thing, the thickness is 23mm at the thickest while the weight seems to be in the region of 2kg or 2.5kg including the brick. As I haven't yet got my hand on it, hopefully it won't looks too bulky for a thin laptop.

It does look like the Onyx is bulkier while the GS at least looks sexier.

Still, I've ordered Onyx as I can't bother to wait for a laptop.

Haha if I keep hold back and waiting for promo, I won't have a laptop at all.
Just that if 1070 take a while before coming to Onyx, it might causing more dilemma as by that time it might be a few months away from gtx 2k.

Well, the Onyx is thick for a reason *wink wink*. Also the GS series has never really been "solid" IMHO, all of them are unfortunately flexy in one part or another - while I can tell you from experience that the Onyx is pretty solid indeed.

Do enjoy your new laptop bro and do post drills for us.

Hi all,

ONYX actual thickness is 19.9mm. It does have a 3mm rubber feet at the bottom to make it taller for better cooling.
