I just got a Lenovo Legion 7i with an i9-13900HX and an RTX 4090m

It is a beast. However, it craps out even on older games like Fallout 4 due to thermal limiting.

This thing gets hot. Putting it on a laptop cooler tray is basically necessary for gaming.

My plan is to rip it apart, and upgrade all the thermal solutions inside with the best money can buy, and maybe add more on the GPU and NVMes

Ain't technology grand? We're down to 5nm lithography and PC thermal situation has only gotten worse despite that.

Now I'm not sure if I want to gut this expensive new machine myself or make Geeksquad do it.
There's smoke in my iris
But I painted a sunny day on the insides of my eyelids
So I'm ready now (What you ready for?)
I'm ready for life in this city
And my wings have grown almost enough to lift me
