There was NO thermal paste on my CPU --'
#1
Just want to let you know guys that Alienware (or DELL) did some really great job with the thermal paste on their laptop. 
Most of us are using HWinfo because we want to slow down our fans or because the pc is overheating, which is my case.
So i decided to repaste my CPU and I saw that there was nearly nothing --'.

Now my PC is really quiet, and temp averages have been decreased by 10 °C.
So if one of you have thermal issues I would recommand to do the same.
(I'm using an Alienware 17 from 2013 which is maybe why I had some problems).

Have a good day, sorry if my english in not perfect.

Thanks for the information. It would be interesting to hear feedback from other Alienware users, as it's hard to believe that DELL would just forget to apply thermal paste on all notebooks Confused
You should make a photo when you removed the cooler and send it to DELL.
