    Hello I am looking for someone in Toronto to help me fix my Alienware.

    - PCH chip modding (Grizzly Kyronaut)

    - CPU and GPU repast with Liquid metal (Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut)
    - Modding required so it doesn't leak
    -show clear demonstration how they did it​

    -CPU overclocked to Dell respective spec for kaby Lake (4.4) and maybe GPU
    - Difference between highest and lowest core should be 0-2c max at all times during a stress test (less than 5c)​

    - Repadding (Fujipoly)

    - Stable temperatue not exceeding 85c
    -Temperature cannot keep rising during a 3-4h of Battlefield 1 or Overwatch game play​

    - Bios Update
    - most stable version.​

    I don't think there's anyone doing that here in Toronto. That would have been one of my solutions too.

    Also, I think you meant 1080 for the driver updates.

    No i meant 1080ti drivers due to external gpu, its the only way I can play on it for a extended period without worrying about it overheating. Think if anyone that does this, comes to Toronto and even posts that they will be picking up orders there entire week will be filled with every Torontonian that ever bought the latest Alienware laptops lol.

    (that is why they keep themselves hidden)

    Hey, I live in the GTA area and have a substantial experience with the 15R3.

    I worked on my own machine, and if you want I can post my temps here.

    Let me tell you a few things:
    1. Forget gaming at 4.4GHz. be it conductonaut or whatever, its heats the processor enough to call a BSOD in game.
    -I play BF1 extensively and it is MY Best test of stability as that is what my computer runs for hours. I play stable, max CPU Temp 75 C and GPU 65C without cooling pad at 36x.
    2. Laptop doesnt overheat and shutdown, i have run it upto 94C and not had any core throttle at all

    3. PCH is modded with Kryonaut and Home made contraption as heatsink, max temps are 70C.
    4. I run all games else than BF1 at 41x, 4.1GHz, Witcher 3, Crysis 3, Dishonored 2, no crashes whatsoever. Only BSOD when playing BF1. Processor undervolted by 0.120mV, my temps dont exceed 85C

    Please see: I dont think someone can guarantee 0-2C between hottest and coldest cores either. After working on three different models, two 6820HKs, and one 7820HK, i believe that the best i could align the CPU, provided a 4C to 6C differential range.

    Regards

    1: the 4.4 is so all cores are even. as it currently stands it looks like this

    As for point 4, if you are running at 4.1Ghz bring the prosssor undervolted to -0.75 instead of -0.120 this it would help.
