    We sell the sn750 1tb with it but I believe that is still single sided. I do think it will fit just fine but most stores you would order it from would have a decent returns policy just in case.

    Anyone here got liquid metal for their laptop? How well does it improve thermals?

    EDIT: No idea why I asked this when I had some spare liquid metal xD
    Temps dropped to 77C max using automatic fans during CB R20 run. Score increased by 80 points while being quieter. At max fans, it reaches a max of 73C. Pretty god damn nice if I do say so myself.

    So long as the contact is good LM is always going to improve temps about the same amount.

    Decided to mess with the fan curve since CC3.0 has a somewhat decent custom option. Temps now reach a max of 90C on the CPU but it's now a simple hum when under load :D

    Yea WD Black is single sided up to 2TB along with Samsung. Is the whole problem whether or not there's enough height? The actual thickness between single vs. double is less than 1mm. I'm more worried about whether the components underneath will be damaged by the heat or close contact. There is no information in the manual either. Not sure why the answer is hard to find when double sided M.2 sticks are much cheaper than the default Samsung/WD Black options offered by resellers.

    It's all about physical space yes. Heat should not be an issue as the PCB of the motherboard can dissipate heat.

    I repasted my powerspec 1520 with mastergel maker and undervolted to .125 and wasn’t getting thermal throttling but was being power limit throttled to 3.6-3.7ghz with cool temps. I unlocked the tdp and can now pull 3.9 on all cores but thermal throttles. Should I keep it at 3.6-3.7 or undervolt more and keep the 3.9ghz? How would this impact performance?

    Only you can answer that question. Nice job on your testing so far!

    How you use your laptop and preferred tolerance of things will be different than someone else’s.

    Depends. If you're playing a lot of GPU bound games, I'd take the lower temps since the heatpipes are connected so you wont affect the GPU as much. If you're doing more CPU bound tasks, take the higher boost clocks
