    That was the AW 18, if I recall correctly.

    Did you check, improve your CPU fan also?

    Yes, this same fan I have in my m17x, it's working super.

    Your shutdowns seems to be due to CPU overheating.

    I had also read about the quality of this heatsink being not soo good, then I didn't buy it.

    First of all, try sanding and use Condu again (or use your stock heatsink with Condu).

    Not overheating I think , because with autofan mode , I hadn't experience that.
