Is GTX 780 the best GPU upgrade for a M18x R1?

    Second fan has different temperature table. It starts spinning on 62C or something like that. Unless your GPUs exceeds 85C it's fine.

    For pad thickness and tutorial check my signature. I did it before.

    Ah ok I run my fans max all the time with a program called HWInfo64 (Disable EC Support) as I have always preferred performance over a little bit of sound, I use my PC with headphones on so u never hear it anyway

    That clears things up. I thought it was some weird temp. issue. What's the reason behind it?

    I don't know. Maybe they wanted to prevent turning on 2nd fan randomly while in Windows.
