Temperatures, Cooling and Noise
The MSI GT70 is a huge laptop. As such, it should keep temperatures and noise to a minimum. Even with all of the hardware stuffed into this laptop, the palm rests should remain cool to the touch.
As you can see, on the front of the system, we logged a maximum temperature of 91.5 degrees Fahrenheit. This high temperature was located right underneath the WSAD keys, which is bad news for gamers.
Moving around to the backside, temperatures were higher. The maximum observed temperature was 112 degrees Fahrenheit. The high temperature was located right over the heatsink, which explains why the heat was concentrated there. Using the loaded system on your laptop would likely be uncomfortable.
The maximum observed GPU temperature was 92 degrees Celsius. The CPU reached a maximum of 92 degrees Celsius. The GPU was towards the top of its range of acceptable temperatures and was one of the hottest running systems in our chart. The CPU was much warmer than I'd like.
The MSI, despite running hotter that the ASUS, produced a sound level of 48 decibels in our measurement, making it one of the quieter machines we have tested, but not as quiet as the ASUS that was cooler running. Our measurement is taken in front of the laptop at roughly head level. For comparison, 30dB is a totally quiet night time in the desert, 40dB is whispering and 60dB is a normal conversation.
