    Meanwhile repasted the laptop. Used GC Extreme and now temps went down around 10C.

    has anyone replaced their SSD yet? If so, which brand/drive? I was on another forum and someone said y540 is single sided so we can't use the double sided ssd.

    You mean replace the M.2 SSD? Personally I would leave the default M.2 in place for the OS and add my own 2.5" SATA SSD.

    Like I did myself.

    Switching to PCIe x4 won't change a thing. Stick with the original SSD.

    Yeah, because my configuration is only a 256gb, I am thinking about getting an external enclosure to use that and put in a 512gb or 1tb. Also going to swap out the 1tb HDD to a sata ssd, more research to be done...

    Yeah, just upping the size but wondering which M.2 people swapped to.

    No, mine's totally fine. The speakers aren't so good as my previous ASUS UX533FN but still enough for me.

    Connected with a 55" TV Samsung KS7000. Works great. No problems here.
