    I couldn't run a business if I had to go through all this. Doesn't matter where you buy it. I can't rely on machines who have a flawed cooling design!! It would ruin the business!! @tilleroftheearth :rolleyes:

    It does matter where you buy.

    Ford's cars aren't garbage just because Yugo's cars are garbage.

    Right?

    The manufacturer I bought from uses a 4 bolt system on the CPU and GPU. It doesn't have a tripod heat sink design.

    You're right though. The tripod is garbage.

    Would be nice seeing how they can attach 2x 4 bolt system as the MB is designed for use of 7 screws. 4 for gpu and 3 for the cpu. Strange I haven't seen @iunlock mentioned this before. Could you post a picture of HS and MB?

    It's not an Alienware.

    It's another (different) company.

    I see. But Alienware design and produce the MB!! I suppose we talk about Alienware Laptops. You talk about another (different) company manufacturer.
    Edit. I re-read your previous post. Yoo skp Alienware!! Sorry for the misunderstanding. And yeah, TRIPOD HS design is garbage:vbthumbsup: All too many have started with this awful heatsink design. Thin and flimsy + the love for mini sized MB even in the bigger 17,3 inches chassis is the culprit.

    So you guys definitely recommend I skip the R4? Such a shame because it's so nice looking.

    What would you guys recommend instead? All I want is a 1070.

    Some people have not had any problems, some people have had lots of them (personally I haven't had any issues with my 13 R3).
