    Hi Niek,
    I ordered my Zalman NC1000 a few weeks ago (and still waiting) as my XPS M1530 was overheating and shutting down after 30 min of gaming.
    Yesterday I came across your article and today I went to get the thermal compound and followed your instructions.
    Result: CPU 48°C and GPU 56°C
    Thanks for sharing this with all of us!!

    PS Also canceled my order for the Zalman.

If you want more information about letting your XPS run cooler, please follow this link. […]
