    Interesting. 12K would be crazy, probably never going to happen. That must have an Inspiron 15 7000 on LN2 or something

    I know right? That's the first thing that I had thought haha...

    BTW just broke 6K in Fire Strike:

    Clocks? do they hold up during continuous stress without any throttling?

    I'm running a Fire Strike loop with the graphs on hwinfo64. As soon as I have all the data I'll update the OP(s).

    The new XPS reminds me a lot of the AW13 with the GTX 1060. It's just so small and compact that it can barely handle cooling the chips....although the CPU temps are great for what it is, the GPU I'll be working on more extensively throughout the day.

    Your CPU volts seem really high... I know the 7700HQ is a beast seeing that physics score... definitely beats mine..

    I can hold steady 1860MHz on the GTX 1050 during gaming and benchmarks. Also my CPU undervolt of -0.145 reduces my CPU package power by a full 10watts on the CPU alone... you need XTU and some good undervolting. I see like 0.950v under load in games and something like 0.895v in prime95...

    Hi,
    got the 9550 i7, initially pretty miserable but now okay repasted with Cryonaut. I had thoughts about Conductonaut but seeing things out of alignment wasn't reassuring.
    Mind explaining a bit more about heat sink alignment you did?
    I'm curious why LM wouldn't be better for the GPU. Wouldn't LM help dissipate the generated heat at lower temperature? Alignment problem (LM not filling the gap everywhere)?
    Unlike you, most gamers seem to focus on making the GPU run as fast as possible, perhaps even throttling down the CPU (iGPU) a bit intentionally to avoid joint thermal long-term overload.
    For work, some folks would be better off with getting some more out of the CPU, which might be feasible when the GPU is idle.

    There's a secondary GTX 1080 there ;)

    I'm just getting started and haven't even got to tuning yet. There's always a bit of head room on these CPU's as Intel over volts the lights out of them to create a buffer for stability. Once I get this thing running at its peak, the results will be updated in the OP(s).

    If using traditional paste the only paste that I would recommend is either Grizzly Kyronaut and/or Gelid Extreme.

    I've had better GPU temps on my gaming laptops (AW17R4's, 15R3's and AW13's) with traditional paste over liquid metal, however, with the GPU (die) being so small on the 1050, I'm still experimenting with a few tweaks to get the most cooling. I'll keep a log of updates in the OP.

    I'm curious what machine that is...a Dell __________.

    Check out my Flickr album for cooling mods: https://www.flickr.com/photos/30149337@N04/albums/72157680615207736

    Been using it for the past 2 weeks now. Liquid metal paste is awesome! This is coollaboratoy Liquid pro. I actually like pro better than ultra. I've used 2 tubes of CLU and just part of 1 tube of CLP. I'd say you'd get 3-4 applications of CLP with a full 1.5G tube on both the GPU and CPU of the XPS 15...
    My temps are awesome. In Prime95 any test, I max out at 62C with the fans at 2500rpm. With the CPU and GPU going things get much hotter around 70C but still that's really good for 0 throttling in this laptop...
