Double fan, double wind tunnel game, a lot of fan, four wind tunnel design game, but not a few, then With a 17.3-inch 144Hz narrow-edge large screen, dual fan, four-window game, I am afraid that only the mechanical revolution X8Ti Plus.
On September 10, the mechanical revolution released a piggyback 17.3" screen 'small body' gamebook - mechanical revolution X8Ti Plus Because this model has a narrow bezel design, so Its body size is almost equivalent to the traditional 15.6-inch game book, easier to carry in the bag.

Configuration aspect, The mechanical revolution X8Ti Plus can be equipped with the eighth generation Core i7-8750H six-core twelve-thread processor, GTX1060 6G discrete graphics And equipped with dual DDR4 memory slots, dual M.2 SSD slots and 1 mechanical hard drive slot.
The mechanical revolution X8Ti Plus has a computer lock on the left side, a left air outlet, an RJ45 cable, a USB interface, a headset interface and a headphone jack (from left to right).
The right side of the fuselage has an SD card slot, 2*USB3.1 interface, right side air outlet (from left to right).
The other interfaces are set on the rear side of the fuselage, with 2*mini DP interface, HDMI interface, Type-C interface and power interface (from left to right). In addition, there are two cooling air outlets on the rear side of the fuselage. There are a total of four cooling air outlets on the fuselage.
The old saying goes, 'Knowing people knows what they don’t know,' Today we are going to do a disassembly evaluation of this notebook, to see how its four air duct heat is exactly, what is the 'core'.
X8Ti Plus has a slim design The mechanical revolution also Thermal configuration has been further enhanced . We can see that, There are 6 large-area hollow grille air inlets on the back of the X8Ti Plus. At this angle, we can easily see the two internal turbine cooling fans. I believe that this design will definitely increase the amount of air intake. The other two speakers are also placed on the sides of the bottom of the D surface.
Before disassembling, we prepared various tools. When we finally got it, we found that it was enough to use only one screwdriver. The whole process is relatively simple. First, we need to unscrew all the screws on the D side and then lift the rear case. .

The interior design of the X8Ti Plus is very neat. The cooling module occupies nearly one-third of the area It shows that the mechanical revolution has indeed made a certain amount of effort in heat dissipation.
In addition, if we look closely, we can see that the back of the back shell is covered with a layer of metal shield, one can increase the toughness of the back shell, and the other is to indirectly increase the heat dissipation efficiency.
There are 2 turbo fans in the whole machine, and each fan is equipped with 2 heat dissipation air outlets. There are 4 heat dissipation air outlets in the whole machine.
↑X8Ti Plus cooling configuration: 2 fans, 4 heat sink fins, 5 copper tubes, 4 air outlets
It is understood that The mechanical revolution X8Ti Plus uses its fourth-generation thermal design. The fourth generation of heat dissipation mainly extends the heat-dissipating copper tube to the side of the fuselage, so It can set up two more sets of cooling fins and two air outlets than the regular game book, thus achieving 4 channels of heat dissipation. In addition, the height of the X8Ti Plus's cooling grille is increased by 16% (16% increase in air volume per unit time), and the heat dissipation efficiency is significantly improved compared to previous models.
In addition to the above hard core structure, the X8Ti Plus also uses a right-handed corner heat dissipation design to avoid hot air blowing. In addition, the fourth-generation cooling also changes the one-button strong cold key to one-button switching performance key (game mode and office mode). Switch).
Copper tube layout, X8Ti Plus has a total of 5 cooling copper tubes Each of them has two copper tubes around the CPU/GPU. It takes the heat generated by the dual cores more quickly, and another ultra-long copper tube traverses the fuselage to improve the heat dissipation of the dual core and the heat generated by other components.
After 10 minutes of 'double copy' test, we found that The power of the CPU of the X8Ti Plus can be maintained in a high-performance state of more than 65W for a long time. At this time, the core frequency is 3.3GHz. And its The GPU can also be kept at high frequency for 'full blood' for a long time, and the temperature is maintained at around 70 °C. , this means The X8Ti Plus has a good cooling effect and can tap the full potential of the computer.
From the thermal map measured by the Fluke thermometer, the surface temperature of the fuselage is controlled quite well. The hottest place is in the middle of the notebook, close to the keyboard 'Enter key', but the temperature is only 43 ° C , And the temperature at the WASD key is 35.8 ° C, which is basically similar to human body temperature. The feeling of playing the game is quite comfortable.
Let's take a further disassembly to understand the internal structure of the fuselage.
In order to avoid the accident of disassembling, first we have to remove the battery of the notebook.
Then unscrew the screws that hold the battery and unplug the cable that connects the battery to the motherboard. The battery can be easily removed.
The X8Ti Plus uses a 4100mAh/46.74Wh battery with a standard voltage of 11.4Vdc and a charging voltage limit of 13.05Vdc.
The X8Ti Plus has two built-in memory slots, and the memory slots are protected by dust-proof and anti-static stickers.
We have a Samsung 8G DDR4 2666Mhz memory on this machine.
The body has a 2.5-inch hard drive bay and is secured by a metal shield. The mechanical hard drive can be removed by removing the screws from the shield.
1TB Seagate mechanical hard drive
The X8Ti Plus has two M.2 slots, which means that this machine can expand an Intel AoTeng memory or add an M.2 SSD. This machine is equipped with a Samsung 128G NVMe PCIe SSD solid state drive, transfer rate It is three to four times that of a normal SATA SSD.
At this angle, the heat dissipation part of the fuselage can be clearly seen. The fan is equipped with heat-dissipating fins on both sides and has two air outlets, so that the heat on the copper tube can be faster when the fan rotates. Discharge. Below we disassemble the thermal module.
First remove the screws on the heat sink module.
Secondly, unplug the cable that connects the fan to the motherboard.

Disassembled cooling module
Although the mechanical revolution X8Ti Plus is a 'small fuselage' gamebook with a 17.3-inch large screen, but after we dismantled it, its internal materials did not shrink, and the heat dissipation performance is indeed in place.
