    Well the PB51 I have stays pretty cool.
    Using it on my lap (so youd get better results if you put it on a desk and proped it up) I got 89C on the CPU and 88C on the GPU. The CPU stayed at 3.9GHZ and the highest the GPU got was 1875mhz. Keep in mind, I do have it undervolted and have liquid metal on the CPU and kryonaut on the GPU.
    The PB71 should get you even better results since it's bigger.

    So are there any 1440 or 4K panels available that would swap into this yet?

    Nothing 1440p I am aware of, 4k potentially but that usually murders battery life and response times.

    Hey !

    Thank you for this insight, did you remove the heatsink to liquid metal it ? do you know the thickness of the thermal pads necessary for the VRAM ?

    Yes I had to remove the heatsink to liquid metal it (as in, I had to take it off, apply liquid metal and put it back on) but I dont know about the thermal pads. I kept the original ones on.
    This just makes me sad. 1440p makes much more sense than a 4K screen in gaming laptops yet manufacturers are pushing it cause "moar pixels = better"

    I agree. If there was a 1440p 17" panel available I'd jump on upgrading from the PB51 to the PB71 in a hearbeat, even if it meant swapping the panel in myself.

    Battery life isn't a huge deal imo. I wasn't aware of the 4Ks having a big response delay though.

    Liquid metal does need a level of contact usually requiring thermal pad adjustment for the best results.

    Any idea on the thickness to use ? or at least the size required and number of pads ?

    I believe there does exist an older 17" 1440p 120hz panel used in old alienwares. Dunno if the PB51 supports it though.

    Due to the tolerances it's best to do a fit.
