It's not too late to grab a new gaming notebook before the start of the new year. Canadian barebone reseller Eurocom will be running a promotion on its current 15.6-inch Tornado F5 and 17.3-inch Sky X7E2 extreme gaming notebooks on Boxing Day this December 26th where buyers can shave 10 percent off the final retail price on either one of these two models.

Both the Tornado F5 and Sky X7E2 have LGA 1151 sockets that separate them from most other gaming notebooks currently available. This allows the systems to accept standard desktop CPUs including up to the overclockable Core i7-6700K. GPU options include Maxwell and Pascal with the larger Sky X7E2 able to accept up to a GTX 1080. The GPUs are upgradeable as well since the MXM 3.0 cards are removable.

We recommend checking out our review on the Sky X7E2 for more details on the Clevo chassis and its performance. We'll also be checking out the Tornado F5 soon with a full overview in the weeks to come. The customization and raw performance of most Eurocom notebooks shouldn't be understated, but all that power comes with some major caveats in terms of core temperatures that buyers should be aware of.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
