CPU was bad and santa didn't give him a heatpipe nor a 4th screw.

 

I don't understand the point of these models. They must think consumers won't even consider buying a laptop thicker than 1" but have no problem with a janky watercooling setup.

This might eb an unfortunate for you or not. But the pipe has slightly changed

I saw this earlier today too. Why did they make the cooling setup WORSE than last year?!

People might argue that last year's cooling was worse because it had to tame both the CPU and GPU, but it's not really a problem as the pipes are being cooled by both the internal fans AND the water. I hope to see some detailed comparisons of the cooling abilities of this year's model and last years.

Also, why couldn't they run the pipe for the GPU VRM's over the PCH? I know its not that big of a deal, but in laptops where most of the airflow is directed to the heatsink, it would be a bit better to get the PCH while you're at it.

Here is their reasoning:

Die size, lower nm, more power is for the gpu than the vram. This means the 4000 series is hotter and more of a power consumer chip wise in a vacuum.
