    Hello, OK thanks for the link. From what I read so far, it seems solder has much better thermal conductivity than thermal adhesives, see here for example: http://electroiq.com/blog/2000/10/lead-free-solders-vs-conductive-adhesives/ but the good thing is it can be more convenient to work with. So for better efficiency of cooling VRM inductors or any other component, anyone building a modded heatsink should consider using solder I think, since better thermal efficiency also means longer lifespan of this expensive MXM pascal GPU.

    Anyway, this is indeed a great job :vbsmile:

    Easier said than done. Using solder is nightmare, unless you put the whole thing in an oven and everything is arranged so it wont fell apart. AS Premium Adhesive is still the best thing for stuff like that. Then there's MesoGlue, but I'm losing hope that it would hit the shelves.

    Just to let you know, got the 2133MHz kit 2x8 sticks and surprisingly the RAM boots and runs at 2133MHz without any hassle.

    Yes. Like I said. Regular i7s can't usually run anything above 1866. Because it's a laptop I don't think overvolting the memory controller is possible either. My 2133 ram was unstable in my aw 17 with my 4700 and 4710 cpus. It runs perfect on the 4930mx.

    Yes you're right on this one. I found a trick to avoid unsoldering parts you don't want to when heating somewhere, I put the other side on water to avoit it can get too hot. But soldering this is really hard.

    Thanks to you loafer, this thread helped me a lot making same kind of mod successfully on a M17X R4: https://www.techinferno.com/index.p...x-r4-another-socket-victory-against-bga-crap/

    Great job! how much job should we do because Nvidia didn't want to build pascal in mxm 3.0b...

    btw: I see you have a lot of aw17 spare parts and I'm looking for an 3d ir emiter (cheap :p) if you want to sell one send me a message
