    I was thinking of grabbing one of these - what are the thermals like vs say a Razer Blade?

    Thermals are bad with stock paste, acceptable with liquid metal repaste. I have 15" model, the only difference is slightly longer heatpipes. If you are not willing to repaste - consider other laptop models by other brands, like Lenovo Y740.

    What makes the Lenovo thermals better? How are they in comparison to a RB15? Mines burnt out at 100 degrees solid after a year of use.

    Lenovo Y740 has larger heatsinks, with more fins and larger air exhausts. Dell G7 and G5 has really small heatsinks and small air exhausts. Lenovo also uses better thermal paste, the paste Dell uses is really poor.

    Are you saying you think the Lenovo gaming laptops have the best thermals atm? I don't see how a single heat pipe config could be "best" by any means.

    Number of heat pipes is irrelevant if the heatsinks are too small or have small amount of fins. And yes, if you want best thermals and don't care about display quality or battery capacity - Lenovo Y740 have the best cooling out of similar laptops.
