    You don't get any help in the deep end.......

    ;)

    See post #3100 (or around there, he's currently working on something with great results! Top bloke)

    As to the LM, there's a great guide on the forum. Just search liquid metal showdown! :)

    Hey!

    Yeah actually Doug2507 tipped me about these bad boys:

    http://www.mouser.co.uk/new/versarien-technologies/versarien-lph-heat-sink/

    Got them today by dhl express and going to replace my existing PHC/ssd heatsinks today.

    You'll need the 1 25x25x5 on the PHC and 15x15 and or 10x10 for ssd depending on the drive chip size (4 pieces).

    I have high hopes for this heatsink! It has been tested to be the best passive cooling heatsink on the market in regards to size. The things we do for our children (AW13) haha...

    The owners that received new machines last week. Make sure to check your batteries. My battery had 20.4 wear level just after 5 days. The initial reading I had from the time I started the laptop was 5%

    My battery was defective and is getting replaced tomorrow.

    Hey guys,

    It's been 2 week my computer overheating with shutdown on game. I had a mail from dell and they change it now with a upgrade (7700HQ instead of the 6600HQ one and 512GB SSD instead of the 256GB SDD one). It took a long time but i am happy with this (thx dell).

    The new one coming the 16/02/2016 and i can keep the old one for work during the swap procedure ;)

    I hope that will be the good one haha.

    Anyone seen this before ? o_O
    [I've seen it only in Witcher 3 so far..]; Could that be Tobi related ?

    edit: nvm, it's the sound control panel 3D indicator [FYI - apparently it affects performances a bit]

    Undervolt, min brightness, prefer intel graphics, keep processes running to a minimum.

    6 hours may be a bit of a stretch but I have gotten through 9am to 2pm without plugging in.
