    I'd stick Gelid GC Extreme into that list, much better than MX4, on par with IC Diamond but much easier to apply. MX4 unfortunately for me always lost its performance after a while, I suspect bubbles or cracks would form in the compound.

    If it stays put like ICdiamond does then it would be great as applying that stuff on a rectangle if not spreading it manually is hoping for some magic from the light pressure mounting systems of alot of laptops. and spreading icdimaond well is easier said then done as it is like spreading gum and trying not to get a bubble. Its working well for me on my laptops. but depending on the cooler lottery some may have better or worse for how flat there cooler is so they might be able to use a slightly thinner or need just as thick of a paste. my laptop also gets put into a bag quite often for travel so it sees more movement then say someone who just uses it as a desktop which I think plays a huge role into pump out of thinner pastes

    Upgraded battery update: had it on battery most of yesterday, managed to get nearly 7 hours out of it yesterdayat work, before it started beeping at me with brightness @ 20%. If working with brightness at 0% (if its dark) I've seen the battery guessometer show few ridiculous predictions of 12+ hours... Still though @ 7 hours its well worth the £60 spent on it as I can take the laptop out for a few hours without needing to pack the power brick

    Well no improvement on the raw power since the OP bios, actually a bit less CB15 scoores. But now we have the dedicated FAN - MODE switch in BIOS.

    Try contacting any company that sells the tongfang laptop for replacement switches, some might only offer blues, some could offer browns.

    If anyone can make a 3D CAD file of the keycap (stem most important), might help out anyone that wants custom keycaps.

    Well I haven't flashed the bios on mine but I can tell you that the files you are trying to boot off of won't work. If I were you, I'd download Rufus portable and use it to create a free-dos bootable drive and then copy the files over to it. From there you should be able to run the batch files.

    So after I've added another 16GB of RAM, I've noticed my temps are through the roof. Are these the Aida64 stress settings people are using? This was with fans on turbo. It was pulling 75w plus or minus under load.

    I'm going to repaste again. Just using mx4. Kryonaut is in the mail (I hope it isn't the fake stuff)
