    *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.

      Thanks, In wasn't aware Gaming mode works this way at the time I ran the review.

    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).
