    tjmax is for CPU, not for soldering.


    Oh, that's what I already do most of the time, when I'm not developing (programming) or playing with SketchUp - no gaming, mostly web browsing, sometimes...

    I don't pay €2000 for a laptop if I'm going to use it for no more than 2-3 years. I expect it to be usable for at least 10 years. Yes, it won't run the newest games after 10 years and won't be any...

    Black screen, some LEDs turn on. No logo.

    Good for you.

    When I saw something that probably was a BIOS update screen, laptop seemed to be unresponsive, so I just turned it off. Not the best thing to do during BIOS update, you know... Now...

    Available in Microsoft Store too, just search for "asus battery".

    I have GL702VMK for slightly more than a year. Too bad I couldn't find this app earlier - HWiNFO64 says that battery has had only...

    djbigbear, did you remove the sticker from the SSD? Or did you leave it to keep the warranty?

    I've read that many use Prime95 when stress-testing CPU after undervolting. It didn't seem to give any reliable results to me, though (i.e., when Prime95 can run for many hours without issues, other...

    What a PITA… :D



    I can't confirm that. It looks like 1.0mm is way too thick for samsung chips and R22 components.
    Here's how it looks on R22 components. Also, see the next image (it's also...

    Here's how stock thermal paste looked in my GL702VMK (before cleaning). It looks like memory chips and inductors(?) also had some thermal paste on them (similar to the paste on CPU and GPU), cleaned...

    Repasted my GL702VMK today. Looks like stock paste didn't do well on CPU. I don't play games, only Entropia Universe occasionally, but it's annoying when fans spin like crazy when they shouldn't :)

    Hi!
    GL702VMK (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060) owner here. I'm willing to replace stock thermal paste and thermal "something" with Kryonaut and thermal pads from Thermal Grizzly.
    Can anyone confirm that 0.5mm...
