I had a question pertaining to "Supports external displays up to 4K @ 60Hz, 2K/1080p@120Hz"
 
Does this mean the laptop's display supports 4K @ 60Hz, 2K/1080p@120Hz, or does this only apply to external displays?

With the 7820HK CPU, what are the base/boost clock speeds on it?  Also, how good is the cooling inside of this?  It seems very thin for such a powerhouse of a CPU/GPU combo.

Well this is awesome, kinda the opposite direction I had hoped for.
Any chance a 15" max-q edition might be on the way?

I love your laptop design but I'm looking for a smaller, thinner setup with a 1440p monitor and a 1070/1080 maxQ setup.

From Intel website,
Base should be 350Mhz and boost 3,9Ghz.

This machine looks pretty nice, I spend 1/2 of my time gaming on a laptop and I'm currently using a GT73VR equipped with a 6820HK/1070, it bulky but its a power house. The SC17 seems to be a bit more mobile and has piqued my interest.  I do question the PSU wattage however, my current machine pulls 228W at full load with my overclocked settings, adding a 1080 to the machine would put it over 240W.  Is PSU that comes with the machine strong enough to OC the CPU/GPU combination and would a stronger PSU be available?

This is a very nice looking laptop and if my 4th Alienware has problems then I will seriously consider purchasing one of these instead.
 
However, I have a question and it pretty much echos what DukeCLR has said. Is a 240W PSU enough? The AW 17 with pretty much identical specs and no "true overclocking" advertised comes with a 300W PSU. I would think that bare minimum for a laptop that does advertise "true overclocking".
 
Any info or response to this?

This is only for external display support.

Thank you for the heads up, we are updating the spec sheet for sc17 1080, it DOES comes with a 300W adapter.

Sorry, not to ask the same thing over and over, but before I purchase this glorious beast I want to be assured that all sc17 1080s will be sent out with a 300w adapter, correct? I don't see anything related to power on the spec sheet or even the main product page any longer.

It does say that under specs but in the write up it says:
 

Breaking away from the conventional brick form factor, a unique in house EVGA designed power supply delivers up
to
240 watts of power
when needed, without sacrificing function and aesthetics.

This was in the 3Dguru write up as well, that's what caught my eye.  It will be interesting to see what kind of OC people are getting.

This looks great.  Does the 300 watt PSU have the same form factor as the current other SC 17 models?  
The only thing that's missing is an option for a lower resolution 120hz refresh rate display.  I have the SC17 1070 and the 4K screen is fine but even a 1080 I don't think would cut it for the best gaming experience.  
 
I am also glad to see the lack of USB ports issue is resolved!

I was about to buy one but looks like auto notify. I guess I am out of luck, since the same price looking decent. I won't buy in regular price, so hopefully they add more stock for the sale.

Indeed the 1899,99 was a great price for this machine.

I'm definitely interested to see what* temps people are hiting after an OC.

This is Aida64 stress test for 30 min at 41x (CPU, FPU, Cache, Memory) high temp of 84C.
 


 However if doing the torture test with Aida64 with GPU as well then the CPU overheats, GPU is fine.  But on normal loads, an overclock on stock paste is doable up to 40x or 41x.  Can't really go beyond that, not only because of thermals but of the PL limit 60W fixed by the EC firmware, which can't be changed in the Bios or XTU.  I will sometime try a repaste, but this heatsink is very difficult, have to disassemble the whole motherboard to get to the screws.
41x on all cores, Aida 64 torture test (CPU, FPU, Cache and GPU) high temp of 98C CPU and 74 GPU
 


 Same torture test but using stock clocks 35x on all cores.
CPU, FPU, Cache and GPU high temp of 85C CPU and 75C GPU (25min).
 


 Edit:  I guess external links or uploading images doesn't work.

Overall, I am happy with this machine, especially with the well built design.  The cooling is pretty good with stock paste compared to some other machines.  Performance wise also decent, but the EC power limits are frustrating if ones to overclock beyond 4.1GHz on all cores.  Even after unlocking the Bios, I can't get the PL limit to exceed 60W.
This is the best I could get in Firestrike,
https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/24233352
 
The main issues I have, other than PL limit, which is by design and I can live with that, is the back light bleed on the bottom of the screen and the coilwhine coming from the GPU side.  I would of asked for a replacement if I lived in the US, but I had only 5 days there and it was a present, so I accepted it as is. My other concern, is that EVGA says they won't service the laptop after the warranty, even as a paid service, so if anything gives after 2 years, I am just out of luck.  I really hope they can at least pass the contact for the service center they use to be able to purchase parts if necessary, such as battery, fans and PSU, since these parts will be hard to source since this is such a niche product.

any idea if the 4k/60hz display can be upgraded *yes upgraded* to 1080p/1440p with 120hz?
4k/60hz is not gaming. it's masochism
