    What are the ambient room temperatures during thermal testing? Also, can you please check how well they have applied liquid metal to the CPU? I've seen some people point out that they've not applied it properly.

      24 C for all our tests.

        Thanks for the reply. Also please let us know, are the fans at max speeds during Cinebench/prime95 run in turbo mode? Because I noted this behaviour in my Asus Scar 3 – the fans won't ramp up to 100% unless I'm gaming or have both CPU and GPU working hard, and fans will be around 75-80% during Cinebench workloads. And manually setting fans to 100% did help reduce temperatures during prime95 and similar CPU only workloads like Handbrake, etc.

        they're working the same ay you're explaining, and that's normal

        Also, the RTX 2060 offered on the Scar 15 G532LV is 115W, instead of 90W. So kindly make this correction in the review.

    I feel that the previous Scar 3 was much more cooler on the GPU. Ultrabookreview's last year Scar 3 review shows a lot cooler temperatures on the GPU. Do you know any reason for this? Actually I saw a few chinese reviews which said that GPU is even thermal throttling at 86-87 degrees on the Scar 15. Can we have a word with Asus regarding this, somehow? Because this feels abnormal to me.

      I noticed that as well. I thought there might have been something wrong with my early sample, but if other reviews confirm it, then it might be something else. I'll ask Asus about it.

    I am very nervous/curious about the problem with dpc latency. Is it that much of an issue or can you feel the spikes during gaming,watching etc. It would be great if someone gave info regarding that

    I have a G15(G512LV) i7-10750H and RTX 2060(115w). It has the same body as scar 3 just with liquid metal now. Stress-testing withh Aida64(cpu only) + Heaven gets my gpu to 86°C(thermal limit) and even after undervolt(-80) and TS limits my cpu goes well above 90°C. I am sure there's an issue with new models as even Scar 15 is not showing that great results as Scar 3 did. I would love if you can take this to Asus and give your thoughts on this too

    Can you review the Strix Scar 17 with the i7-107875H and rtx 2070 super?

    He has reviewed the Scar 17 with the same 10875H cpu you are talking about.
