    Omg:) and there I was thinking how do I get an air conditioner chilled air to the bottom of the laptop, lol, well done!:) I also searched for frozen mats etc no luck hahaha.

    The desktop cooling was another level entirely though! Kudos to you Mr.Fox.

    I see, thanks, and what temps are you getting with stock cooling at 4.4?

    70s under load on the CPU. The M18x had good cooling, just needs a decent paste.

    That's really low for load conditions, is it fans on full blast or not yet? Reason I say it is for gaming that would not just annoy me but wake up my wife and kids too:) for benching it doesnt really matter I guess.

    The CPU runs in the mid 70s on load, for peak it can hit low 80s. This is all on auto fans.

    When I am benchmarking, I put the fans to 100%

    Naw I got the regular LTE model. 5G isn't ready imo with AT&T yet. Maybe next year I'll get the Note 11+ 5G lol

    I didn't like the iPhone 11 Pro Max so I am staying with Android. So much more fun and flexible.

    Agreed. Noooice was about you m18x rather than the phone though:)

    I am thinking about getting a new palmrest as mine is kinda scratched from the previous owner.

    That would transform the look of mine:)

    I recommend checking eBay. I basically got a brand new palm rest and complete lcd assembly (better 1600x900 display) for my gf's M14x for like $80
