Solid spec, good price. Heat
Good price for the spec. CPU could be a little better, especially for higher end gaming but good deal for the price.

The 7700HQ will be fine when paired with a 1070, especially a 1070 with the thermal constraints of a laptop.

Are you saying the cooling is bad? ;-)

For around £200 more you can get an i7 8750 with a 144hz g-sync screen from pc specialist. Seems to have around a 30% improvement over the 7700HQ Each to their own though. As I said the price is good for what you get, I'd just want a little more muscle personally.

You specifically mentioned wanting more CPU grunt for "higher end gaming".

How often in higher end gaming scenarios can that extra 30% actually be made use of when paired with a GPU like the 1070?

I bought the Defiance v from PCS (i7-8750h, 1070,144hz) and the laptop was nothing but issues, and the chasis itself cannot cool the cpu and has huge thermal throttling even with liquid metal applied and a huge -0.200 undervolt.

I got a new bios update which supposedly "fixed" the issue and all it did was reduce the thermal limit for the cpu form 96 to 85, so it just gimped performance even further.

Would not recommend at all. Sent it back for a return and hopefully will be refunded even though it's outside the window.

I like PCS before, but for a laptop that supposedly went through 3 rounds of testing to be sent something that gets to 90-99c before bf1 even has done loading is a joke.

That's a shame. My 3yo laptop is from there and it's been alright. Granted it has a mobile GPU rather than a desktop one so doesn't draw as much power. The Defiance V was the exact model I was considering, might look elsewhere now.
Look at that guys. Better cpu, better gpu for less than £100...10% drop now, looks better, what do you think?
