    They seem to be just fine.

    So I'm all done.

    I have 3 extra screws, so that's troubling, but everything seems to be solidly back in place.

    Had WoW running for around 5-10 minutes now. CPU is averaging 55ish degrees, peaking at 75-79. I feel that should be lower, no?

    You can run WPrime. Right click and run it as Adm. Click Advanced settings, select 8 threads and run the 1024M stability test. Follow temp with Hwinfo64 or similar tool. Post results:)

    Temp seems ok. Because the fan profile in Alienware 17 and and 18 is slow to start up.

    Awesome. Such a relief. Never done a thermal paste job on a laptop before.

    Run the same benchmark after a couple of weeks. See if temp is the same. Good luck:vbthumbsup:

    Nevermind, just found a whole mess of comments on facebook cautioning me against them. Sigh.
