    Wouldn't doing a repaste void the warranty?

    Check with your reseller if you are unsure.

    I've not purchased yet. What's your policy if ordered directly from Sager, or a reseller that just redirects to you for service?

    As per our warranty page damage caused by doing a repaste ,(you knocked a thermal pad and a vrm blew up because it was not cooled or your paste was conductive and shorted it) would not be covered. If you repasted properly then no.

    I’ve been looking for a lot of videos/tutorials and the vast majority seems to recommend to do just the dot/pea method..?

    After seeing a picture from another user showing how he got drivers on USB, I need to ask: did anyone that purchased their 1520 at Microcenter also receive this ISB drive with drivers? (Or any media type with drivers?).

    On the larger GPU die it can be really hard to get the right size, the X method while leaving a little excess usually is friendlier to the less experienced. The CPU should be a thin line due to the shape.

    Got it, so while what they say is usually true, the line and cross is better for this particular case simply because of the processors shapes?

    Exactly, you are looking for the best spread pattern with as little paste ideally.

    Hi everyone, I'm interested in buying the vortex IX from Pcspecialist here in the UK. They offer a thermal paste upgrade so I'm hoping they apply it well, as they are very reputable here. My question is, although it's been proved to be a powerhouse with gaming, what are its stats regarding video/music production? Lack of thunderbolt sucks from a music standpoint, but can this system roll with those demands? I'm looking at an i7 9750H, 16GB 2666MHz (2x8GB) and an rtx 2060.
    Any help appreciated and this thread has been incredibly informative towards my potential purchase and for that I thank you all!
