    I've looked at the tear downs and there doesn't seem to be any way to cool the Nvidia GPU on this machine.

    What do you mean? The fans (and the case) do all the cooling.

    There is no heatsink. The surface area is too low to properly dissipate heat.

    There is a heat sink on the 2012, step 14 and 15 I can't see why it would be any different on the 2013, but I can't find a teardown of the 2013 15" with a dGPU in it.
