I did play some game on the laptop but not a very GPU demanding game. Haven't really test the full output of the laptop yet.

My Specs:

i7-7700HQ
GTX1050ti
G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB
1TB HDD
No OS

My Q5 Evo comes with Professional Color Calibration, compare to my other laptop the Q5 EVO screen looks warmer, White with slightly yellowish tinge.

It is normal I suppose ? hmm.gif

Hi Smurfs,

It is normal for the screen to become warmer after applying the color profile. The default windows color profile is bluish.

- rclxms.gif REVIEW- rclxms.gif
Somehow i forgot to put my review here last saturday, probably preoccupied with doing work on my Q5 Evo laptop

-Today, Boot time was at 11 seconds~
And Upon login took 3 seconds into desktop screen
SITUATION 1: AIRCOND ROOM IDLE
SITUATION 2: AT HOME IDLE-LEISURE BROWSING
SITUATION 3: AIRCOND ROOM (WORKING-2 EXCEL Instances, 3 google chrome tabs; 1 tab google search, 1 tab youtube at 720p, and 1 tab facebook)
SITUATION 4: AT HOME (GAMING la what, eg: Dirty Bomb)

SITUATION 1: 39-45 celsius
SITUATION 2: 50-65 celsius
SITUATION 3: 50-55 celsius
SITUATION 4: 65-85 celsius (so i bought a coolermaster MasterNotepal Pro:65-80)

RAM USAGE:
Always use only 5-8GB for gaming
Emulation PS2 smooth like butter (Persona 4)


Story: devil.gif
My previous laptop was a Lenovo Z400 touch, but touchscreen faulty vmad.gif it was one week after i purchased the lenovo
And it is now dead due to spill damage, wanted to replace/repair but shop said "Better you go buy a new laptop"
So my journey began, to search a laptop, was eyeing Alienware 13 R3, but not yet available in Malaysia (March)
Then I searched online for secondhands, refurbished etc. Before I stumbled upon Illegear, I had also seen some other Malaysian Custom Gaming Laptops.
But somehow I am more attracted to Illegear.
Maybe because from their facebook, they have outstanding customer service, answered my questions and fast reply.


I played dirty bomb with GT740M and have only reach ~55-60FPS puke.gif
Now, with GTX1050ti, 120FPS++ rclxub.gif (higher graphic settings some more)
Was using i5 3230M, still okay for me to browse, 8GB 1600MHz no lag, but boot time for Lenovo Z400 was over one minute.
Now with i7 7700HQ, blimey loading chrome faster than fast, 16 GB 2400MHz rolleyes.gif
I took out the 1TB HDD 5400RPM from my lenovo and used for additional Q5 EVO storage.
275GB crucial SSD great, with another empty SSD slot!
Also RGB lighting I set to bluish to pair with my logiteech G402 Hyperion Fury and soon G710+
I cry everytime I see my setup. wub.gif

Some cons:
However, there is a problem existing in my unit but now important just peculiar:
16GB ram, 2x8GB RAM, so two slots right?
But in task manager show 4 slots, so two still empty.
I don't mind this but maybe after warranty expire I will open up myself and see.
Another is the AC adapter, the exhaust fan are designed at the rear back.
But the AC in is designed bent, so the 'wayar' will be 'kena' the hot air coming out of the rear exhaust.
Probably Illegear should design a 'straight' type (But with the cooler master, elevated and not a problem anymore)

Bottomline; rclxs0.gif
My little brother will be sitting for his UPSR this year,
And he is already impressed with my laptop, so he says he wants one like mine.
So, I will BERUS him, lecture him to oso get illegear, maybe TROIKA? hahaha rolleyes.gif
