The only comment I would make about this, and take it as criticism to better your tutorial next time, is to use a more precise measuring tool. Small metal rulers with very precise measurements can be had for $1 at hardware stores, and they would be invaluable in most of the pictures compared to the broken school ruler.

Again, just some constructive criticism. Otherwise this is VERY informative and well written.

I take it you didn't have any issues swapping out the 680M for the 780M then?

Yes its true, sry about the broken school ruler, i was a little bit lazy to buy a better one, i think main thing is the information and not the optic here  but you are completely right  :biggthumbsup: :smile:
I didnt changed to 780M because i found some posts in different forums where people wrote that 780M become hotter as 680M and my 680m getting 80 - 85?C in games like BF4 (without OC), by the way what are your max temps in graphic intensive games? ( I have GT70 0ne, same model like you)

It is a bunch of good info for notebook users. I will surely have a look again if I ever afford to buy MSI's notebook  :laugh:

As you can see by my signature, my temps are VERY low compared to the norm. I'm usually maxing out at around 75C on a VERY graphics intense game....with a high overclock....

I love my GT70 0NE, and I honestly would NEVER trade it for one of the newer GT70's. They just run too hot for what they can do. I'll stick to my older model.
