    Yeap its quite simple. Just some T6 screws to get past and you're in. Alsp when you repaste, check how the wireless antennas are routed. Mine were directly contacting the bottom of a heatpipe so i changed it a little

    And yea it can go 100hz easy. Got it running BO3 at 100hz atm

    I cant really say how big my difference in temps are because i initially bought and used it in Malaysia for a few months before moving to the States to study so the ambient temp difference really doesnt do me any favors since its much colder up here. But i can say roughly a 10 plus celcius drop with an aggressive undervolt. Your results with the indervolt will vary depending on how much voltage you can take away from the CPU. I've been lucky to get mine down to -.165 and squeeze plenty of extra battery time and thermal headroom. I dont OC my CPU though, only the 1070

    Pm me if you want more details! Always glad to help someone out :)

    gotcha thanks for that! I will likely be ocing the cpu all the timeI couldn't find much info on temps when its oced to 4ghz vs any other cpus. At stock its about 5-10% faster than the 6700hq but thats all I can figure.

    A full OC will def push the cooling system to its limit. I almost managed to overwhelm it doing a loop of Firestrike so i would say a 3.8 is a good level

    dang I was hoping to keep it at 4ghz whenever I had it docked at home.

    I havent tried out 4Ghz in games. ONly in Firestrike. But that is not indicative of what games will be running at so i would think that you'll be fine...??? Just be wary of the fans. They are uh...pretty vocal

    I am using it more for video rendering so cpu will be near 100% a lot of the time. No worries you have offered me a ton of info I appreciate it.

    Is it possible to play games with low fan noise with this laptop? EX. I set CPU to 50% Speed at 60c, will it stick?

    I think its doable if you set the max CPU clock to something like 2.7GHz and the GPU to 1650MHz@0.8V.
