  1. It is portable, just take the laptop off, wipe the pipe of a bit and put the bottom housing on. Personally I dont mind putting on the 5 screws.
  2. And I'm not planning something like milling or what LTT did. Something like a loop and a long copper pipe as a block should work. Add it into my laptop stand and have the weight of the laptop pushing the 2 together with some thermal paste in the middle.
  3. I was thinking if I can get the heatpipes exposed, stick a block onto those pipes and just run a simple loop, I think I can give the thermals some headroom. Since alot of heat will be put away from the pipe by the loop, relying less on the fans and rad.
  4. I did repaste and undervolt, and I got down like 10C. Was thinking of some other ways
  5. I was trying to get the temp from my Alienware laptop down. And I found this black plastic wrap covering the heatpipes. Does it have any functional purpose and is it ok if I just take it out? I was thinking take it out, expose the heatpipes and maybe slap on something like a fan or a block to cool the pipes, getting my thermals better.
  6. I do try to mod it as much as I can but within the original package (being that it's still portable and within the same housing). However, buying an Alienware I never planned to put it on my lap (obviously it's thick, heavy and way too hot). I did plan to buy a desktop but portability is too important.
  7. I monitored with 2 software just to be sure - NZXT cam showed high 80s to 91 - XTU shows mid 90s Thank you, I honestly did not know about the power delivery circuit issue.
  8. So I have the Alienware 13R3, it has the i7 7700HQ with a gtx1060. It does run hot while gaming tho. I did redo the paste with mastergel nano and I used XTU to undervolt the CPU (-0.120V so far). During stress test it runs completely fine with 85C avg and max of 95C. However, during gaming sessions, the CPU does throttle here and there quite frequently( which I think might be the GPU heat adding up). Here are some questions I have: 1. I see that there is a thick plastic wrap around the heatpipes, can I remove them? (Linus' new vid suggested that it was to keep it comfortable for human laps) 2. Is there something else I can do? (adding a fan to the heatpipes, "water cooling", etc.) Thank you so much in advance.

    Soundcore vs airpods

    I'm deciding between the soundcore liberty 2 pro vs the original airpods. I have an ipad with s10+, both pc and mac (use it for phone mostly). I do make phone calls so airpods' mic do really appeal to me.
  10. I'm building a PC for streaming PUBG, I was thinking 9700k pairing with a 1660super, 16gb ram for 1440p at somnewhere 90-120fps. For cost efficiency I'm thinking maybe move to a 9600k but idk if the lower core count can handle the streaming part.
  11. He said it was laggy, occasionally overheat, draw lots of power, crashes alot yet slow as heck. He ended up returning his entire build for an intel build.
  12. From my friend's past experience with Ryzen, we're leaning more towards Intel, personally I have no experience with Ryzen either.
  13. I'm building a PC for streaming PUBG, I was thinking 9700k pairing with a 1660super, 16gb ram for 1440p at somnewhere 90-120fps. For cost efficiency I'm thinking maybe move to a 9600k but idk if the lower core count can handle the streaming part.
  14. If I get the note 10+ and sell my s10+, I'd have to pay $400USD though. As a student, nah.
  15. thanks but, no. I'll stick to my S.
