      Hi Dave! Love your vids! You have a very professional but friendly disposition! 2 quick questions sir! Would liquid metal cooling help the heat problems and would this play cod mw and similar games as well as vr? Thanks so much and keep up the great work!!

    Hey guys, I recently bought the Prestige 15. I decided to reinstall Windos 10. Since then I couldn't find to download MSI Creator Center to control the fan speed. Googling didnt help at all.
    Can someone help me out?

    14 inch?
    6 core?
    GTX 1650 Max-Q?
    Black & Blue? _(one of my favorite colour schemes)_

    It sounds like a perfect laptop for my needs!

    *_Why oh why is it single fan 😭!!_*

    Is there a huge difference between the 14" and 15?
    Portability is important, but i also want to be able to do some light gaming and im ok with playing in medium settings. Struggeling between the 2. Help me Dave!!
    Great video by the way!

    Would this be a good laptop to run autocad 3d? Also looking at the dell xps 15 and asus zenbook 15.

    An external fan would ruin the portability factor of the laptop but would it help with the thermal situation?

    The thing with windows laptop...once you use a macbook's hard to go with something else. This laptop's spec is amazing, but I hate this rectangular trackpad design and it's a deal breaker for me.

  • Aleksi Räsänen
    Aleksi Räsänen 23 days ago

    Why no mention about trackpad drivers? I think it's quite crucial information for a lot of people in search of a new laptop.

    Has anybody experiences with the MSI and a eGPU set-up? Would love to hear if that solves the thermal issues. Also, any recommendations for 13"/14" + eGPU set-ups are highly welcomed :)

    Excelent review Dave! Very detailed. I'm terrible sorry for asking this but: I'm a content creator, I'm a software developer / medium intensive user, would you recommend me this laptop? (Context: I'm from argentina, and I'm travelling to spain, and the houses that I'm visiting have this laptop among others like ZenBook 14/15 - which I dislike for the issue of the RAM, so long story short, this is a huge candidate)

      Yes. I own the i7 version and there is no way possible to cool that in this chassis. I should have bought the i5 version and saved some money instead.

      I got a pretty stable undervolt of 125mv on core and 90mv on cache.

    Hey Dave and others, I am looking for a laptop for a 3 year business marketing course with some light video/photo editing along with it, can integrated graphics work for those needs? Looking at this and Asus Zenbook 14, do I need an mx50 or can an Asus Zenbook i5 with integrated graphics meet my needs. Thanks

    Im between Lenovo Y540 RTX 2060, i7 and MSI Prestige 15, I need light and easy laptop for college with great battery life, BUT I like to game alot, I can sacrifice graphics but I want still smooth playing experience like in BFV, CSGO, Destiny 2 etc. Damn, decisions, any help is welcome!

    • Preetish HS
      Preetish HS Month ago

      I'd go with MSI Prestige 15 if being light weight and battery was important. And you can play CSGO and other similar less demanding titles easily on it, with High settings. You can play more demanding games like Witcher 3 also. In medium settings with pretty good frame rates.

    3:09 "I undervolted the CPU, I undervolted the GPU - like I said - to a lower clock".
    Undervolting is reducing the voltage, but maintaining the same clock.

    Dave, I know it was a simple mistake.
    But it is this kind of things that mislead people when talking about undervolting.

    Nevertheless, I loved your tutorial on undervolting, and I congratulate you on that.

    ARGH - so close to a perfect product for me, this is super-frustrating! I want something that's slightly more-capable than a ZenBook 13/14 for light content creation and occasional mid-tier gaming, preferably with a MicroSD card (as I deal with a lot of devices that utilize MicroSD, on a regular basis). The thermal issue is just a huge disappointment! I don't want to pay a price premium for this device and yet not get the full potential out of the high-spec components... The Stealth 13 (FHD version) is now down to $1300, but uses an older CPU and has fewer ports... Gah! :-(

    • Preetish HS
      Preetish HS Month ago

      With undervolting and repasting you can get pretty decent performance for the size, performance better than the new Razer blade stealth. But definitely not to its full potential. Even the 15" version cannot get its full potential.

    I am looking up to buying a MSI Prestige laptop. My main concern is costumer support, and quality and durability of MSI's products. Having lost almost 800 bucks on an Acer laptop that died a little more than a year later, and not getting any kind of costumer support, I do value durability over price.
    Is MSI worth the risk? This is, by far, the best laptop under 1100 bucks that is both portable and light, and gaming capable. Is there a better choice?
