Did you put heatsinks on the vram? Vram temps were one of my concerns about using that bracket.

yes, I put solid copper heatsinks on the VRAM and aluminium ones on the VRMs. I wouldn't be worried about putting heatsinks on either unless you're mining, but the VRMs are more important than VRAM if you were going to do just one

This is a bit off topic, but I'm looking to buy a gaming laptop for when I'm on the road for work. I've been looking at Cyberpower. Any of you have a preference and why? There's many companies out there to choose from.

Thanks in advance for your opinions.

personally, I wouldn't buy from any of the "custom" manufacturers for fear of how technical support/warranty would play out. I'd be more inclined to go with a reputable manufacturer like ASUS for a gaming notebook.

Agreed. The ROG laptops are the balls. 4 ram slots, good cooling, and the ability to add another gpu on some models. Other manufacturers offer these things as well, but I agree with jchap. A good gaming laptop is an investment.

I don't have a Storm Stryker yet....currently I have it's little brother, the Storm Scout 2 Advanced. But I'm considering going with a closed loop WC, like the H100i or H105. Seems like the H100i fits well on the top, but has anyone tried mounting a H105 yet? Just curious since the rad on the H105 is thicker. I like everything about the Stryker, but seems like it can be just a tad more taller in the interior.
