HI
I have read the post earlier, most of the people recommend XPS 8940.
As i watch from youtube, most of the XPS 8940 having cooling problem, if i wanted upgrade how should i do it ya?
I am planning to buy 11700 with 3060TI.

Open the case and check the can size. Most likely 80 or 120 or 140mm fans connected to the motherboard. Order a better fan online and swap it. Easy as ABC.
