    Sounds like a lot of people are reseating the heatsink with better thermal compound? (Because of the initial spike, overall hot temperatures, or wanting to outdo what was done at the factory?)

    Using Ubuntu Studio 16.04, with the Linux version of Prime95, on a stock 7559 I bought (but later returned):

    The CPU initially spiked to 92C, but soon went down to ~74C. Half hour later it seemed to stabilize at ~76C. All cores were in 5C of each other. Apart from initial spike, I was impressed with the results (and overall build quality despite display issues). Idle temps were in the low-30s (32~35), which seemed fantastic.

    I do mostly CPU-intensive work, but I ran a quick GPU test -- I playing a 3D game with all max settings at 1080P, which got the GPU up to ~85C. A lot of shearing/tearing artificating was visible, regardless of vSync setting. I'd read elsewhere the nVidia 960M apparently has problems with tearing... :(

    I just installed on a perfect working system and dont see any difference. Anyone see or experience anything new? Whats the white LED below the touchpad supposed to do? I saw it flash on and off once but that was a while back.

    No, I used Google for every little step when something went wrong. It was not necessary to make the boot flag changes permanent. Have you tried nouveau.modeset=0 ?
    nomodeset i915.modeset=1 does the same thing :)
    The guide you found may work nicely.

    Yeah. But it's a bit hard to understand for starters.

    You called Dell and they are shipping you a Samsung display? I too received the LG panel in mine. Earlier posts suggest that the LG panel isn't too bad. Quite good actually. I must say that my screen looks pretty good looking straight at it. But has very poor viewing angle. I would consider a better matte replacement if I could find one.

    It made much more sense after that first cup.
