I am on my 2nd Alienware laptop this month as I returned the first one that had the identical issue and the retailer thought it might be a bad laptop.  With a strict 15 day return window I was running out of time to troubleshoot.     THIS LAPTOP vs the one I just returned: Alienware 17 R4 GTX 1080 (previous GTX 1070) i7-7820HK

Staring a new thread with some more updates and new issues. Upon receiving this machine, I removed the i3 6100 and put in a 6700k cpu. I used the stock air cooler while waiting for my Corsair H80i GT to arrive. First off, upon shipment, the CPU fan has been stuck at 100%. (CPU temps between 20-30c and idle machine).
