    See my old post for thermal pad specs. I used the Fujipoly 17mw/k pads and they turned out to be amazing. :)

    No but read a review witch compared them to traditional heatsinks. It quite the temp difference. I'm rolling around the the same temp as fujipoly and custom made heatsink with this heatsink and the original thermal tape. I am happy with this...

    My ssd is in the 40-50s with full load and my PHC in the 60s (Celsius).

    Is it possible to charge the laptop through usb type c? I am getting mixed messages through google search. I tried using razer blade stealth charger and it didn't work.

    Thank you for sharing these mate. I plan to do the same. Curious what temps did you have stock?
    Are all PCH/SSD heatsinks 5mm thick? That's rather thick, so they will touch the bottom cover by design?
    Also curious what exact sizes do you put on the SSD. On the memory 15x15 on the controller 10x10?
    Thank you again!

    15x15x2mm on memory 10x10x2 on controller. 25x25x5 on PHC, shaved off 1mm to get enough room. But there's hardly any heatsinks out there with a lower profile. Though you can use the 15x15x2mn on the PHC too and avoid any fitting problem but it is a lot smaller surface area vs the heat that gets produced in PHC.

    My stock temp were in the 80-90s on load both on CPU, GPU and PHC. I'm down in the 60s now...

    There is thermal tape on them from factory, I just used them as is... There is little to no room for even a 0,5mm fujiploy pad so I just said f it and applied them. Got the same temp as With my homemade solution, but this looks better and its secured in place by tape so it will be easier for all to apply them. This is work in progress though, so I might change the tape for pads or paste later on. Now I just want to use the machine haha.
