Hello there !

I am currently looking forward to purchase a new laptop for (mostly) gaming use.

I have looked all around the web, to finally stumble upon this one : http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00165427.html

It's mostly everything I want, GTX 860, 8GB RAM, I5. (I don't want an I7 cause they tend to heat up a lot more)

But I didn't manage to find any review of this laptop on the web, so, is it good ?

Is the cooling system powerful enough ?


Thanks for all your advices :)


(excuse my English, I'm french)

Hi, the reason why you're unable to find a review for that laptop is because it is a custom built laptop from a small laptop builder but based from the specifications on the website, it seems pretty decent considering the GTX 860M can provide a optimal playing experience. The cooling system should be fine as the thickness of the laptop is most likely due to the bulky heatsinks that are inside of it, so overheating should not be a issue at all.

Thanks a lot for your answer !

You're clearing the questions I had :)

 

If the cooling system is OK, I think I'll order it

I have a photo of the cooling system. Based from the photo below, it seems the CPU and GPU are individually cooled rather then sharing the same heatpipe which is good and the temperatures should be well within it's safe operating range.

I believe it is just 3 screws that are holding down the fan, so in theory it should be fairly easy and straight forward to take it off and clean, same goes for the heatsink itself. Although i recommend a notebook cooler to reduce the amount of dust that gets inside the fan and heatsink itself since you do not want to take it apart in the future as it may void the warranty.

Perfect cooling pad as it is made out of aluminium meaning it will have a cool surface and the huge 25cm will certain assist the cooling system to draw more airflow to keep it cool.

Last question, a little off-topic, but what case/satchel should I buy to protect it ? I don't know any famous brand or product of that type

Well, there isn't any better models for the that budget on the website linked in the initial post unless you know a different online retailer that might sell high performance laptops.
