    Hi, im thinking of buing this laptop. But the temperature problems make me doubt.
    While playing I do not worry about the temperatures of the CPU and GPU, because it is normal for a laptop to reach high temperatures.
    But if idel temperatures are very high would be a problem.

      Idle temps are not high, but why would you even care about that? I find the high load temperatures more problematic on a supposedly gaming device.

        Andrei, thanks for your reply.
        I´ll play games in my house, so i think that with a cooling base the hig load temperatures would not be a problem.

    Which one will you choose, GL702VM/vS
    Or MSI GT72VR DOMINATOR PRO? Budget aside. And why.

    I have this later version of laptop with a 7300hq CPU, I have throwed everything at it and yes it says its at 84 degrees c CPU and 85 c GPU all on ultra settings but these later models outer skins dont get hot to the touch either at the bottom, top or even at the fans.
    There are not that many reviews going around for these later 2018 models and I did play with a 2017 model and the build was very suspect but not this later model!
    I bought this one off ebay UK for $820 checked with ASUS and registered it and now have a 24m warranty after owning both a G750JS and then a G752 this is without doubt the best gaming laptop bar none.
    I have noticed one very strange thing though this comes with the asus gaming centre yet the generic tweak II ROG software makes this run quicker and alot cooler so perhaps its the wrong gaming centre software causing this overheating rather than the notebook its self?
    Only thing I hate is the red backlights, trackpad is best ever no problems so far.
    just remember guys 1060 is the only card you will ever need a 1070 is great but the screens cant cope with the frame rates not even 144hz screens, this 75 g-sync screen is perfect for ultra gaming at a smooth 50-75 fps gaming anything higher is for ones ego for the next 5 years your future proofed 3 years ago we were all told a 5500u would last us the next 5 years a 7300hq is nearly 100% above that performance, get real guys get this notebook and save yourselves lots of dosh?
