    When I called the other day about warranty repair the rep said you would have to pay for the shipping and the turn around time is 1-2 weeks (which I thought was suspiciously fast, considering they might not even have any new stock).

    I just checked some of my pictures and I do not have that tear, not sure how that happened on yours. My curiosity would be if they will warranty something that you likely damaged. You may want to see how much replacement keyboards are since the cable is likely built into it.

    Good point. Any ideas where I would find a replacement keyboard?

    As was recommended to me when I asked about fixing my keyboard that has a few rgb leds going off color: try contacting any company that sell this tongfang laptop.
    --------------------------------------------------------
    So here are my results in attempting to even my core temps by wrapping a little foil around the top mount screw, in order to increase pressure on the mount. MUCH better. I see that some people don't have this problem, but I just couldn't get it to even out before doing this. Maybe my heatsink is junk. I'm pretty happy with things now.

    You have to be very careful when removing the ribbon cable from the battery as it is glued to it with some sort of mild adhesive. I managed to do the swap without any issue. Bob said you can remove the cable by removing a tape that is holding the SATA cable to the mobo but there is a spot under the 1st M.2 slot where you can fit the sata connector under there and remount the 1st m.2 drive so you do not have to worry about losing the cable.

    Did you end up finding a tongfang vendor that you used?

    I have the GK5CN6Z with xmg 1.03 bios, 1.33.09 EC and runinig Win 10.

    Some posts ago it was said that the m.2 PCIE slot is 2x and m.2 PCIE-SATA is 4x.
    So I run Anvil, AS SSD and ATTO benchmarks, puting the Samsung 970 EVO 512GB on slot #1 and then on slot #2.

    The results are realy strange:
    - both slots give practically the same speeds!!
    - seq read speed is around 1200 MB/s
    - seq write speed is around 2200 MB/s

    I don't understand why the seq read speed is about half the seq write speed (clearly vissible with ATTO and AS SSD), and far from the 3500 MB/s read speed on the specs sheet... See imguir post https://imgur.com/a/1K0vS61

    Any ideas why this is happening?

    No, I haven't even looked into it yet. It's fairly minor, so I'm not too concerned about it yet. I was hoping there was a fix I could do without paying for replacement parts originally.
