As you said, the fans are quiet thanks to its bulkiness (attributed by the hefty ventilation.) I will say that the G752VT seemed to be the most silent out of the laptops I've tested so far. I can't really compare it to the laptops MJ and Derek have tested since I haven't had my hands on those laptops myself. Your mileage may vary, though; I think all G752s have the same ventilation, but different internals (like the VL with a 965M or the highest end VY with a 980M and 6820HK) means the heat and noise will be different.Alexander
How did the fans sound to you during benching? Please do share and compare with the other three laptops.
I'm assuming the Asus would be quieter due to its bulkiness, which I also assume was a conscious decision.
