Reviews for the Aorus X7 Pro Sync
Aorus X7 Pro-Sync looks great and delivers fine gaming performance however the cooling in this slender laptop is marginal at best. The result is that the cooling fans are horribly noisy. It doesn’t help that battery life is unimpressive but we can forgive that in a gaming laptop. The issue here is that Aorus has put the emphasis on making the X7 Pro-Sync very thin and this has impacted on the usability and performance. When you consider the high price of this laptop it is quite a problem. It is a crying shame that Aorus could have made the laptop a few millimeters thicker and the result would probably have turned out better for the paying customer.

There’s no denying Aorus’ latest gaming laptop is fast, but the fan noise really is a major issue. We can’t imagine gaming with such loud fans, hour after hour, is going to be a whole lot of fun, though a pair of active noise-cancelling headphones would go a long way to solving his issue. Perhaps Aorus should consider including a set in the box…

The Aorus X7 Pro Sync is arguably suffering from a mild case of form over function. Its slim dimensions and reasonable weight given the extreme hardware inside means that it's actually a fairly portable unit. However, the slim chassis also inevitably gives way to excessive noise levels as the smaller fans need to ramp up to deal with the heat.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
