Default Could us some advice on my eon17x 2015

So I just had origin make me the new eon17x with the i 7 4790k, gtx 980m, and two ssd's (tb and a half). I also overstocked it. This thing is a power house and I can't wait to game in ultra settings . My question is I forgot to add their extra thermal compound stuff.... I know these laptops are supposed to handle heat well with the larger heat sink. Is there anything besides a cooling mat I can apply myself to help the heat?? I have not received it yet but it's on its way...

It will already have thermal paste on the GPU/CPU heatsinks. Not sure what kind of "ugprade" to the paste they were trying to sell you...but you could do that yourself if you really wanted to later on down the road; $8 or so for a tube of good thermal paste will last a loooong time if you don't use it often.

Thanks, I was worried given that this laptop has the 4790k in it... That's somewhat new territory. I'll probably just get a cooling mat for it and itl be fine...
