I did make several changes to how my system came configured. It arrived with a 512 GB NVMe SSD set up with a 280ish GB C: partition and a 180ish GB D: partition for Data. A couple of other partitions are system reserved (tools and recovery). However, the C: and D: partitions were separated by a 900 MB tools partition and Windows doesn't let you move it. I had to disable Secure Boot and run a Linux rescue tool to move the partitions and expand the C: drive. Everything went smoothly, but I highly recommend backing up before trying.
I also installed 32 GB of RAM (a Crucial Ballistix Sport LT kit, DDR4 2666 at CL 16) and a 2TB SSHD (Seagate FireCuda). Installation was fairly straightforward. It did require removing about a dozen screws from the bottom panel and some plastic prying tools to remove the bottom panel. There are only two SO-DIMM slots, so dual channel/dual stick kits are the only upgrade option. There is also an open M.2 NVMe slot available; the PCB states it's a PCIe 3.0 x4 capable slot. 2.5" drives need an extra piece of mounting hardware included in the box (a small metal bracket with 4 screws, 2 each of 2 different sizes).
Overall, I'm really happy with it. Upgrades are simple enough. It runs cool and quiet at idle and the Dragon Center gives plenty of options for controlling performance, cooling, audio tuning, and screen color settings (anti-blue mode, sRBG, etc.)
I replace a Gigabytes p57 for this and I never seen over 80c temps.
The 144hz screen is real easy on the eyes. I have notice less eye strain while using this laptop.
You will want to get another internal hard drive and another 16gb stick of ram.
Will updates if anything else stands out to me.
BTW, i add two of these:
Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 2666 MHz DDR4 DRAM Laptop Gaming Memory Kit 32GB (16GBx2) CL16 BLS2K16G4S26BFSD (Gray)
* COIL WHINE. Yeah its pretty bad. Its coming from the CPU I called MSI and they said they cant do much about it.
* There is white dot on the display, its circular with a radius of like 5-10 pixels.. Its basically brighter and whiter at all times except dark backgrounds. SO those few pixels are responding weird. Also if you watch some video on youtube that has gray contents, you can see vertical gray pix-elated lines. Its not always there. But mostly on gray.. (especially if you're saving battery with 60hz)
* I find the build quality to be cheap. But it does keep the laptop surprisingly light.
* sleep and wake up works slow. Its almost as long as shutting down your laptop and restarting it. It could be a windows thing so I disgrace.
Wish I went with the macbook pro 16 inch. Apple does not have this many issues and they fix their issues. My previous macbook pro 13 lasted me 5 years with no issues. This one, within 2 months there are too many issues.
This laptop is very thin and light for the performance it gives. As a result the fan profile is aggressive and you're probably not going to want to use this for gaming without headphones. Battery life while gaming is about 1-1.5 hours. Screen is good, color is a bit overdone but you can turn the settings down. The drive is split in an annoying fashion where you can't combine the partitions. The keyboard is a bit meh but overall the machine is solid and doesn't have a lot of flex. Note there is no CD drive so if you have older games you'll need a crack. Overall pretty good for gaming and at a decent value.
As any modern machine, this comes with WindBlows 10 which decides to restart while you're playing, watching a video, typing a paper (etc) with 0 warning regardless of the settings you choose. 0 stars for MicroSuck.
