    What you're really looking for is a UK Keyboard layout, some vendors have other keyboard layouts and can swap them, some might need to order from Tongfang depending on region. The whole keyboard frame that holds the key switches needs to come out, keycaps won't help if you need keyswitch placement moved around.

    I originally repasted with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut as soon as I received my 15+ and was getting great thermals for a month or so, nothing above a mid 80 even under heavy load. Eventually I think the paste pumped out and my temps would rise up to 96 after a single CB R20 run and 10+ degrees between max core temps. I just repasted a second time with IC Diamond and so far I haven't seen over 81 with only 5 degrees between cores. I'll update again in a month or so when we can see if the more viscous paste prevents pumping out.

    Just thought I'd add my experience in case anyone was curious about a repaste with IC Diamond.

    Has anyone seen the larger capacity battery in stock anywhere recently (for USA)?

    But did you check your thermals with the stock paste?

    So I ran into a few things new after installing Intel UHD 630 driver 24.20.100.6287 dated 8/15/2018..... I now have the Intel Graphics settings program back installed (it has been missing for quite some time now), and I just noticed I was having an error code EDP Ring all the time, instantly after clearing it in TS.

    Changing the power profile from max performance to balanced removed the instant happenings, but it would show up in less than a minute.

    Changing it to best battery removed the EDP Ring until i hit thermal throttling.

    Any insight on what is going on here?

    With stock paste I was getting low 90s under load, never quite hitting the thermal throttle.
