    After taking apart my 1640, it looks to me like the southbridge is the culprit for the heat....

    That uses a 4500 series GPU which is a far cry from the 4670. The GPU in the studio 15 is weaker than the 3670, don't be fooled by it's name.

    Check it out for yourself (ie take off the bottom panel).

    Also, google is your friend if you want to learn about chipsets:)

    In the touch pad area, yeah.

    Of course when the system is stressed, it is a combination of things (cpu, gpu, ram, etc).

    Thank you. That brought back my hibernate function. I forgot about that and it's exactly what I needed.

    My SXPS 16 has recently begun beeping. It stops after a while and everything seems normal. Could it be that my HDD is failing?
