    I am using Targus City Gear 17.3". It offers a lot of space and good protection with dedicated pocket.

    So this laptop runs plenty cool, but I opened up ThrottleStop to see what it was doing. I just can't get thing to max out the CPU with TS Bench. It's not throttling, but it's only pulling 17-18w during the test. Windows performance shows 100% Usage. I'm surprised it's so low. Runs at 31x99.768 during the bench.

    EDIT: Running some games and monitoring things, it looks like it pulls a load and acts normal. Disregard my last issue.

    Anyone has tried newer drivers for the Nvidia 1060 Max-Q? The ones from DELL's website are very old...

    Sure, simply install the Nvidia ones.

    Well, it seems that my unit with i5-7300hq and 1060mq runs nowhere as cold as the one tested at notebookcheck. With only Prime95 maximum heat testing it hits thermal throttling. I tried changing paste, but it didn't help much. Undervolting only makes it last longer before hitting 96C and I tought this laptop should be pretty cold while running at stock settings...

    Checking your paste and pads again. One solution is replacing original VRM pads with thinner pads. You can take a look at my post here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...ls-pics-of-internals-optimizing.811380/page-9

    Use GeForce Experience app to update your drivers.

    No, that did not work either, since GeForce Experience app won't install, even after a previous driver wipe.
    DELL drivers install just fine, only the ones from the nVidia website do fail, checked multiple versions.

    I use GeForce experience to update my drivers. I don't know why you're having issues. The only thing I did was clean install Windows 10 pro x64 when I got the laptop.
