I've been researching graphite pads as a potential replacement for thermal paste for my laptop, and I saw that every single application out there just dump the pad straight on the die/IHS.
From what I understand TIM were used to fill in microscopic holes on the surface of the IHS/die and...
As titled, I'm torn between just getting the Dell Inspiron 7677 now with I7 7700HQ and 1060 6GB MaxQ, or wait for mobile Coffee Lake with 6C.
My understanding is that we should see mobile Coffee Lake show up next year, maybe Q1/Q2, since desktop parts have launched. Benchmarks have been leaked...

The reason I'm asking is that I just found out that a...
LTT just did a short vid on driver performance over time for a 480.
Pretty good I must say.
Though 3 years is a long time to wait for an extra 20-30% performance. But then again, I guess it's gonna be the norm from now on, what with the...
