    The color accuracy is a matter of taste; I thought my TrueLife screens were awesome until I ran a calibrated color profile; after that the difference is night and day.... I can't stress this enough... you will almost always be surprised at how far off the screens are from as accurate a color as they can reproduce...

    I could be wrong, but I think he got these :

    http://www.mouser.com/Versarien/Thermal-Management/Heat-Sinks/_/N-5gg0Zscv7?P=1yrii3c&FS=True

    " @s4lem0nsen
    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."

    Keep it in mind that there's a maximum height clearance of about 0.5mm from the plastic cover shield down to transistors and all other components

    I would have gone for the OLED screen if it was matte. I hate the glare on glossy laptop screens.

    Not sure I think it possible with touch screen with a matte finish. I could be wrong but all the screens I have seen with touch screen is glossy

    There are quite a few 13.3" antiglare screen protectors that are quite good. I had one on my AW 13 R2.

    Antiglare is just a coating anyways

    I didn't get one again because I never use the R3 outside anymore

    Sharing color profiles is useless; even more so for OLED

    Each panel is very different due to manufacturing process.

    Few question guys.

    1: Anybody tried the graphics amplifier? Is there any serious bottlenecks?

    2: I got the option of a refurbished i7-6700HQ + Oled for $1400 or a new i7-7700HQ with oled for $1700. With my general interest of an amplifier in the future, and my worry of cpu bottleneck is it worth it?
