    *For some reason, the system kept defaulting to Extreme Performance while running 3DMark, despite selecting the other modes, so we couldn’t properly test 3DMark on Balanced or Quiet here.*
    MSI Center has weird option game mode (*dont remember name exactly) which automatically enables Extreme Performance mode if you start games, it can be customized a bit like choosing apps to behave that way, but I disabled it right away as its annoying.

    I see MSI still uses their noisy fans with thick fan blades (whereas some other manufacturers have switched to more quiet fan designs with thinner blades a long time ago). I bet they also have their "famous" idiotic fan control logic even on this model, where only CPU fan spins and GPU fan idles unless you're doing GPU-intensive tasks like playing games, which also adds additional noise (because single CPU fan has to spin at higher RPM compared to making both GPU and CPU fans spin at slower RPMs at all times, even when it comes to light 2D tasks).

    Hi, You do such a good job on reviews I look forward to reading them just as soon as they are ready!! Thanks alot for your hard work and your professional manner in writing! I am considering a Asus Scar(2024) G18 W\4080 the 2024 has the Mini LED as you know.Price now 2,999
    Then I found this:
    MSI Titan GT77HX, 17.3", 144Hz, Intel Core i9 13th, 64GB DDR5, 2TB SSD, RTX 4090, Mini LED @ 144mhz

    So I come to you about build quality. The 2024 Scar has the MINI LED @ 240mhz This MSI has the 4090
    Both Laptops $2,999.00

    Either way is good I am just wondering what you think , and especially what do you think about that MSI Price?
    Its Open Box
    Thank You
