    Repaste with liquid metal and see how much better you can do

    Yes indeed. The PC felt much snappier and temps were down as well by 1-3C. With VSYNC not noticeable and w/o VSYNC you can feel it finds it difficult to push past 80C.
    FPS was around ~3-4 frames higher.

    I just tried QHD and 4K, they look good, but text are so small that I cannot even see. On Linux, I see a spot in older distros w/o HiDPI support. Text and icons are very small just like ants.

    Liq. Metal on IHS and heatsink voids warranty. He might need to use traditional paste to have warranty.

    Finally arrived! I gotta give it to them, they managed to get it to me on the original shipping date, rather than the new one from after cancelling. Unfortunately I didn't foresee it arriving so soon, so my SSD and RAM is still on the way from Newegg. I guess for now, I'll check it to make sure there's no QC issues and maybe just admire how it looks.
