    HAHA. Imagine I would inform a DELL bot (Aimy is 'its' name?) that I have no problem after flashing higher TDP Bios, and temperatures are better than stock and I keep voltages in check, so my laptop will last longer.

    Seriously. A very cool guy here from A13 R3 forum has just installed a heatsink bought straight from DELL, having more fins and pushing 50% more air. He purchased it with his own money for under 100 EUR from DELL.
    I can't wait to see results, but sounds promising.

    Hi, I have an Alienware 13 r3. The usb-c port on the back wont connect to a mouse using an adapter. it works fine on the side port. Is there a way for me to check in the software whether it's recognised? Thanks

    Buy directly from Dell. You should receive the newest version of the heatsink. 5H8Y5 is the part number.

    That´s the same Partnumber my heatsink has since the purchase back in 2017.
    How high is the CFM value on the fans?
