    Guess we need to wait and see more temps from people. Go go go @Mobius 1, you should buy one to test. :D
    Seriously though I fear the cooling system on the 15 is borked. Though indeed there have been a couple of AW sources that confirmed and issue with the paste on a batch of the first shipments.
    Guess we shall wait and see. :D

    How much thermal paste do we need for a repaste of the AW15?

    According to Dell you should use about 4 tubes of paste per die. Maybe a 1 gallon bucket to be safe

    Unit incoming next week. Probably gonna repaste it, and add copper shims. Heard alot of the 15 having really high temps. I'm gonna need all the cooling I can get if I'm going to OC the 6820.
