    I know, but the above mentioned Tt fails for the sake of it. While doing my research I found couple of guys confirming it, and one of them even got 2 and made absolutely sure that the second time there was no air - it still failed.

    I'd never use Thermalfake products in any quality build, especially not after they basically stole Caselab's designs and marketed them as their own.

    @widezu69 , I'm also planning on watercooling one of my laptop. My first step has been established, which is choosing either my m18x-r2 or Alienware 18, and Alienware 18 is the subject.

    I'll follow this thread in the meantime. :) good luck.

    As far as I can see it has only one quick-connect and it is for expansion, not complete removal of the unit.

    So I'm pretty much settled on using one of those expandable AIO coolers either from EKWB or Swiftech. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can elegantly mount the radiator close to my laptop? I don't just want it to be loose at the side.

    @widezu69 - While brainstorming my Acer's cooling there was a plan to make a big ass radiator on the lid (twisted refrigerator tubes and etc), and hope that passive cooling would do, but the whole thing would've been too fragile for my needs. Might suit you though.
