MSI GP65 10SFK Laptop Review: 10th Gen Intel Core i7 Leaves its Mark
The fans are always active no matter the setting for a minimum fan noise of 31.9 dB(A) against a background of 29.3 dB(A). It’ll be audible in a silent room, but essentially unnoticeable in offices spaces.
When running the first benchmark scene of 3DMark 06, fan noise would steadily increase until reaching 47 dB(A) towards the end of the 90-second benchmark. Results are much louder than what we recorded on last year’s GP65 with the slower RTX 2060 GPU. Thankfully, fan noise remains steady at only 33.5 dB(A) if simply web browsing or video streaming.
When running Witcher 3, fan noise would stabilize at almost 54 dB(A) to be louder than most gaming laptops under similar conditions. If Cooler Boost is enabled, fan noise will jump to almost 57 dB(A) no matter the onscreen load.
We can notice no electronic noise from our test unit, but the constant fan noise would have drowned it anyway.
