    Thunderbolt 3 is mainly for those intending to dock their machine.

    Yeah, that was in my plans. I'll probably abandon it now.

    Why is this? We got a dock that we're running 4 displays on (including the laptop display) with an extra DisplayPort output if needed, but as far I can tell it's just a standard USB-C dock since it works in both ports despite only one of them being TB3. What's the added benefit of TB3 in this regard?

    I wonder how good one of those 3m matte filters would work on an 8454? Anyone had any experience with that?

    Any displays on regular usb are software rendered (on the cpu).

    Doing an OS reinstall on a new SSD. Is the Speed Shift driver recommended or no? I never installed it on the old OS and it still seemed to work fine in TS.

    EDIT: PS, can't recommend the Sabrent SSDs enough

    Having the latest driver will ensure the CPU can turbo up and down as fast as possible.

    What thickness thermal pads are used? Unfortunately I don't have caliper now, and pads are seems not 1mm nor 1.5mm. Also, are there any hidden screws in cooling system?

    I havent been able to figure out the size, but there arn't any hidden screws. It's all pretty straight forward. The only thing is there may be two screws for the bottom panel beneath the keyboard, so it'll have to be popped off to get at them. Not all units came with those screws installed.

    If it seems between 1mm and 1.5mm then it will need a squishy 1.5mm pad.
