    removed the heatsinks on top of the heat pipe, they were causing more heat. also removed the copper heat sinks off the gpu heat pipe, and placed them on the aluminum plating like before. also kept the aluminum heatsink on the gpu but turned it 90 degrees so the fan could blow on the coils more effectively. there was too much going on and it was causing more heat, removed a little and we are back down to 77C max cpu temps while playing dues ex

    it appears dx has a stutter bug issue and I'm noticing it pretty bad in my gameplay very annoying

    Hmm, interesting that it was raising temperatures by putting the heatsinks on the heatpipes. Maybe the heat was dissipating along the pipe but didn't have the fan to cool it off effectively.

    the additional heatsinks on the heat pipe basically acted like an air damn and wasn't letting air past it. The computer felt warmer to the touch, and air wasn't escaping properly. this should prove that the front air vents are actually very functional. It should be noted that the pc now feels considerably cool again.

    If you drop Anisotropic Filtering down to 4x, you'll get about 5 FPS gain with almost no loss in image quality. Also, if you have an external monitor, you can get better performance @ higher resolution with antialiasing off than at lower resolution with AA on.

    Aniso gives you clarity at a distance but not sure if it's really all that necessary in Deus Ex.

    This looks pretty cool. Are any of the visual distortions corrected or improved with better cooling as well? I still can't get over the grainy, compression-type of look that this laptop gives on certain colours (and poor lcd... I can see the "matrix" of pixels in the monitor, reminiscent of old VGA monitors; which further contribute to graininess) I may return it for a laptop with just the plain 6520g.

    Have you updated your BIOS?
