Yes I can RMA, really don't feel like sending it in to get a refurbished laptop back. If they'd send a new one or mine fixed alright, but I take very good care of it and worried if I do send it in ill get a refurbished with scratches or something all over it.

    As far as optimism every game/program I've run needed to be run first before I could even add it into the 3d settings.

    Ambient temps are in my house should be around 60 Fahrenheit. I took temps on first boot, then first min of burning/rendering, 4 min in 10 min in and just randomly throughout the entire 3 hour process, temps pretty much identical the entire time. Been happening since I got it. Idle is high, with one tab open I'm at 10 percent CPU and 55-65c. Gaming gets me 75-80c CPU and 75 gpu. That's titanfall or cod on ultra.
    dblkk, did you purchase using Prime? They are realllly lenient to let you return long after the normal date if you bought on Prime. Give it a try.

    If that fails you can pierce through to the seller, and ask them if they would take it back or swap it for a good one - explain your situation with this laptop - I wouldn't bring up the other 3.

    60F is pretty chilly, are you wearing a sweater?

    idle means nothing is running at all, like 0%. Normal usage is hard to nail down to a shareable number, as there are a lot of variations on normal. Same for gaming. It is best to share totally idle, and then running the exact same software / template during a fixed / static run. Like prime95 or furmark or another fixed benchmark.

    Those gaming temps seem ok to me... but the fact that you can make it go into thermal throttling isn't good.

    If you have an otherwise good example of the JS, I understand why it is difficult to go back to the well again.
