    How effective is undervolting?

    How effective is undervolting? I'm considering getting 980M SLI instead of only one 980M in my new laptop but I'm worried about the heat that they will produce. Should I bother undervolting or try a different method to keep my laptop cool? I've never tried undervolting before so I'm wondering if...

    I'm trying to figure out whether I should get a new gaming laptop with one GTX 980M or two GTX 980M in SLI. I know that SLI uses more power, generates more heat and costs more so is the performance boost worth the extra heat and money for a gaming laptop? Would I have to get a laptop cooler...
