Thinking about pre-ordering this or the 15". My OverPowered laptop fans are loud because the i7-8750H CPU runs super hot even with Throttlestop tweaks. And changing out the CPU thermal paste will not really help unless I want to change it every month.

Just because it's a preorder doesn't make it a slick deal. What's the world coming too?

I have the same issues with the i7-6800HQ and i7-8750h - I returned a few Lenovo Thinkpad P73's with i7-9750H and 9800 (I think?) that were soo hot you couldn't keep it on your lap.

You can try undervolting, but I found that repasting the i7-6800HQ and i7-8750h machines helped quite a bit - 20oF change from pre and post when running Demigod as an example game.

For reference I used IC Diamond and redid both the CPU and GPU.

Back on topic, I am very interested in upgrading my main laptop (Alienware 17 R1 - i7-4900MQ / GTX 780m) with one of these new machines. My concern is all of these GTX 1660 video cards and some latency I have seen with playing with a buddy who has a Ryzen 7 1800X.

Amazon says the Ryzen CPU is quad-core but AMD page says it's octa-core. Amazon needs to fix that.

Why WiFi 5 instead of WiFi 6 to make it future proof for a laptop that's coming out soon? I guess as long as we can swap out the WiFi card then no biggie.

Otherwise, specs look solid for the price. Too bad no Thunderbolt 3 support.

Because TUF lineup is not the top of the line from Asus and WiFi 5 is still more than sufficient for all kind of usage. WiFi 6 is obviously better but the people or use cases who can benefit from that over a Gigabit WiFi 5 (WiFi AC) is extremely limited.
