    I guess Black Ops III has been optimized for newer gen core processors and your 3rd gen cpu bottlenecks it.
    That is the only explanation i can find to this.

    Yeah, that's what I thought first. But then I saw two laptops with the same hardware, same 7700HQ and GTX 1060, one running around 100fps (like my Alienware...), and the other one around 140fps...
    Both with a clean Windows 10 install, same recent Nvidia drivers, same game folder, same settings. That's why I don't get it. Something is wrong somewhere, but I have no idea what it is.

    Anyway, back to the topic. I shoud receive the full copper heatsinks next monday. I'll see what needs to be done to make them fit my laptop properly, and then I'll make a comparison between the stock heatsinks, and these.

    Next step, buy the M18x 330W PSU.

    why only swap the m14x fan blade and not the whole fan?

    isn't NV_Dispi the old file we used to mod like 2 years ago, now do we not mod the NVCVI.inf instead ?

    Just make sure you get this part of the clearance done :

    without clearing room for those tiny coils and junk, the heatsink will not make perfect fitting.

    Btw, I also ordered this fan a week ago or so. Waiting for it. I saw your post, and I was thinking about doing the same thing, it's way cleaner that way. Did it change a lot?

    It keeps the temps of my overclocked 3920xm in check, which was way more difficult when i had the stock fan. So, i would say yes. All at the cost of a bit more noise.

    Allright. That's amazing the number of upgrades that can be done to this laptop... Even small upgrades like that, that can still be really helpful.

    Next thing I'm going to do, that has nothing to do with processing power, is upgrade to WiFi AC. I already bought the Intel 7260AC card.
    The stock antennas are designed for the 2.4GHz band as far as I know, so I dismantled the Asus antenna from my desktop computer, I don't use it. It's made for WiFi AC, so it should be fine.
    I'll keep the built in coax cables, desolder the stock antennas and replace them with the ones from the Asus thingy.
