    If your ordering it from the vendor, they do IC thermal which proves to give it a couple degree's cooler when compared to stock thermals

    I already ordered my laptop. I want to do it myself since it is way cheaper and does not look hard at all. I've read that IC Diamond isn't designed for laptop dies because their die is a mirror and diamonds scratch the surface, they are for desktop cpus which have an alloy surface. I don't know if this is true. Should I just get Arctic silver 5 or mx-2?

    I used arctic cooling mx-4 on my p35w v2 and my temps drop a few degrees on full load. I didn't want to use IC diamond for the sane reason. I don't want any scratch on my components.

    Question about deciding between CF5 and CF6:

    The price difference between these two in the UK is around £300, with the CF6 coming in at just <£1000.

    Is £300 worth the difference between the two, for what is essentially a 256GB msata ssd and extra 8GB ram?

    I can buy a 256GB msata ssd for ~£120 and ignore ram upgrades until necessary. In the interest of saving as much money as possible, is this a good idea?

    If I did add an msata ssd I would prefer to move the OS installation and recovery partition onto it from the hdd - is there an easy way to do this with stuff provided with the laptop? Any decent guides?

    What memory does the laptop take, and is it better to get 8GB now (saving money) and add a second 8GB stick in say a year, or just get 16GB upfront - but the price difference between CF5 and CF6 doesn't seem worth it to get 16GB upfront.
    I will be playing things like star citizen modules as they're released - which I'm managing ok with 4GB in desktop at the moment anyway. Think 8GB should be enough for that for the next year or so.

    Thanks. :)
