      Mind if I reference your AW 17 repasting guide on my review of the laptop? I plan on doing it myself as well.

      Hey iunlock! Could you make a tutorial for the LM repaste on the Asus g701? Receiving mine tmrw and wanted to do this. Also; any tips on overclocking? Wanted to make sure I do it right so I don't mess anything up. Thanks!!

      Hey,

      I heard you're based in Seattle and could do LM jobs? I have an Alienware 13 R3 that I would love to drop off if you could work on it. Quote me a price for the job and let me know :) Send me a PM

        I have the program Discord but I don't have an invite to the "notebook review" one if there is one. Send me a link and I'd gladly send you my username! (Which would be MintFresh)

        I'll be in San Francisco until March 27th for work but I'd love to plan something for a repaste once I get back into Seattle

      Do you think there is a good order to screwing in the alienware 17 r4 heatsink that would maximize the pressure on the bad side of the CPU?

        Great question. I usually work outside in and screw down about 50% then apply the whole X pattern method. The rule of thumb is to never screw down the screws 100% on any given side.

      Thanks
      1. iunlock

        Yes you can put LM on the die(s).

        was thinking if possible not to delete my old files inside the boot drive and the drive D too.

      Hi iunlock.

      My AW 17 r4 with GTX 1080 is arriving next week.
      Which thermal pad you recommend? I saw something like 11, 14, 17 w/mk and im a bit confuse of what's the difference..

      Also planning to repaste it,
      It would be my 1st repaste. I wanna go all in to Liquid metal

        Hey there, I would go with either 11 or 14. They work great. 17 is almost double the cost. As for repasting with LM, if this is your first time, I'd recommend holding off and going with Grizzly Kyronaut. It's pretty fail proof.

        Even if I put tapes? Like from your tutorial repaste?
        Is it really hard?

      Someone on Team LHz has stated that if you do not have the .1 mm pad that you could just use nothing on the Chokes and it will be fine. Do you share that sentiment?
      1. iunlock

        Using nothing would be better than using something too thick. I personally still would provide a medium between the chokes and heat sink for my own personal reasons lol...which consist of spending hours and hours testing varies set ups and recording temp data. It's completely up to you, but no it won't hurt to not use anything. It's just not optimal.

      iunlock, do you do a preliminary tweaking with the heatsink (assuming it has the new 0.1mm pad) and cpu arm mod to ensure flush contact before installing the new thermal pads and applying LM?

      I would assume tweaking around w the original pads would prevent the new thermal replacement pads from being unnecessarily squished...
      1. iunlock
        iunlock
        Yes. That is one of the steps, but the actual aligning part can vary depending on how bad it is... It takes me several hours to get it just right..we're talking the use of heat, pressure paper, vice tools etc...

      Do you believe it will ever be possible for someone to make a mod that increases the TDP of the 1070 and/or 1080 in the Alienware?
      1. iunlock

        It's not impossible. Only time will tell. :)

      Hi iUnlock,
      I repasted with Conductonaut. Temps went down to 60-75 under heavy load. With stock clocks OCCT hits throttling down to 2.7-.8ghz within 60sec.
      I had 1 temp spike to 97C playing GOW4 yesterday. Prime95 or OCCT cannot recreate it. Should I open here up and add more LM?
      1. iunlock

        You could, but be very careful when lifting up the heat sink.
