Good Condition as the lappy is perfect condition and still in Warrantee with Dell and has been looked after properly. No OC has been done, only UV (Under Volting to drop temps even more).

Can do most games on Ultra still with no Frame spikes, GPU Latencies or unwanted shutdowns. (Still playing the Battlefield series till date |BF3, BF4, BF1, BF5|, casual Dota 2, Titanfall, Fortnite, CSGO, Cyberpunk.

Temps without Undervolt is 96 degrees stable on Performance Profile, with Undervolt 86 degrees stable.

Stress CPU Test was done after the Heatsink+Fans replacement for 4H, and it reached 103 and still did not bomb out, avg temp on prime95 for the duration was 98 degrees on 100% on all cores. (Prime95 Used, and Firestrike for GPU)

Paste that was used was Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut (realtime about 200H before it Cures and due for repaste) for the IC's and chips, the heatspreader pads was replaced with a Dell OEM brand which is 12W/mK (Similar to Arctic and Gelid) which is rated for -40 to 200 degrees so they should have about 400H lifetime on them before having to replace.
