    Did you tape or plasti-dip around the core before applying LM? Could easy have shorted the gpu.

    So, I bought a lightning to tb cable for the alienware 15r3. Since there is only 2 usb ports i was going to use it to charge the port. The tb3 in the back dings like something is connected, but it doesnt charge the iphone. Is there a block on it?

    Hey guys,

    I need your advice for a desk monitor.

    I have the AW 15R3 HK7820 with the GTX 1070 and I was thinking about getting the Asus ROG PG348Q. It's a 34" 3440x1440 G-Sync IPS panel.

    But my question is, will my AW15 be powerful enough to get the most out of this screen in gaming ?

    Has anyone purchased any replacement chargers off of Amazon? I just ordered the AGA so I want to keep a charger at home with it and keep one in my bag for traveling so I don't have to keep unplugging one charger. Do any of the 180w chargers on Amazon work? My 15 R3 is 7700HQ and GTX 1060.

    I have a charger at work that I found from an older dell. Its a 130w and I have a 1070 in it. It might not get as many fps, but for youtube watching and the occasional paragon game it works perfect.

    Anyone have the i5 6300HQ w/1060 model? How are the temps and the performance difference compared to the i7 6700HQ? It's on sale for $949 new + free shipping + no tax on ebay daily deals, thinking about biting. Returned my 13 R3 OLED this morning due to really high temperatures (high 80s-92C) on the GPU.

    Are you getting one from delaware? I also dont see anymore discount on the dell outlet store for alienwares. Anyway its a lottery tbh. I got a 1060 with 6700hq and temps are great for me. Max cpu temp is 84c and gpu temp at 73.

    It also helps tremendously if you repaste the CPU and GPU yourself.
