    As I said it's done to increase M.2/ram airflow below the keyboard. The machines have to work to all environments they are shipped.

    What about cutting thin long slots in the foil from front to back all the way along instead of removing it completely, maybe still draw some air across the memory too, might even stir the air up a bit.

    You will drop the air pressure through the keyboard significantly by doing that and may as well open it up.

    So which exactly are the pieces of foil to remove? I recall seeing a diagram at one point but can't remember where. Also, is this only beneficial when used with a cooler, or will it help even on a static surface?

    I think I wasn't clear, I meant the same foil you removed, slotting it should keep some of the vacuum compared to removing it (the foil) completely no? Or am I visualising it like a retard?

    Are the 120Hz screens G-SYNC certified yet?

    Just out of curiosity: I am wondering which Screen resolution might be best for 1080 SLI? I would assuming that 1080 SLI should top out FHD w/ 120Hz easily or am I mistaken? Even for the most demanding triple A games? If so, then - Performance wise - a 4k (60/120Hz) should be the "better" choice then?

    Any fps datas from 1080 SLI with 120Hz FHD? GTA V, Deus Ex, etc. on Ultra settings? Sorry, if I might missed some Posts earlier.

    Easy math for a quick answer
    4k = 1080x4
    1080 @ 120hz = 248,833,000 / Half the GPU but almost double the CPU.
    4k @ 60hz = 497,664,000 / Twice the GPU but almost Half the CPU

    The reason you want GSync for both is at 120hz you will find most games are not optimize to run at that level so they won't in all situations. With 4k @ 60hz the pure amount of GPU required to maintain the frame rate of only 60fps.
