    I gonna buy Alienware 15 r3 , i7 7700, ram 16gb, gtx 1060. Did they fix temperature issue? I heard someone review max temp can reach 92 degrees. Is it true?

      I can't speak for the 15" version, but for the 17" version, it's true. Their heat sinks appear to be a mixed bag because the variability in temps people are getting is pretty bad. I suggest checking out the forums on the Alienware 15 and see if it's the same for them.

    I had same freezing issues on my Alienware 17 R2 (2015)… Turned the web upside down looking for answers, had the unit checked up by tech support who found nothing wrong as the freezes would happen randomly and not during the testing. It severly undermined my affection with Alienware (long time owner of different Alienware laptops).
    Two years passed and I guess Dell did nothing to rectify the problem.
    Well… Farewell, Dell…
