    It seems that one 1gm tube should be enough. Also remember to keep some thermal pads. You might have to replace the ones present when you open the system up.

    That's disappointing.

    That can happen :(, sorry for you, but a good point is that you'll have a unit that should ship with the latest bios and fewer early manufacturing quirks ;). No one will have a perfect 0% defective rate, sh#t happens.

    I know nothing is perfect. Just sucks I waited a month for the laptop then now have to wait another 2-3 weeks. They can compensate me for my time at the least. I still have to wait and see what they do. They started the replacement process.

    Laptop enroute. This double talk I keep hearing from alienware is so ****ty. "they have fixed the problem they deny having".
    I know most people here are concerned with thermals but for me the biggest issue is the noise. Repasting would help in this right?

    I would think your biggest issue would be hoping to have a product that functions for longer than 24 hours. For that your going to need a repaste or for dell to actually fix things that is says are not broken.

    I will say though, I did play Rocket Arena for about 15 min on mine and it was fine. GPU never went over 62C and the computer was not getting hot or anything. This was also on 4K and no screen bleed.

    Except now the motherboard is bad LOL

    Yes, my laptop ran well with the stock thermal compound I changed it 4 days after receiving it to make sure that there were no big problems.

    repasting directly your computer I don't recommend, always wait a little to see if the computer performs correctly and is not defective.
