    Regarding warranty: depends on where you bought, but generally 2 years.

    I think in 2-3 years the GPU will be the bottleneck, not the extra cpu speed.
  3. Yes, you paid for it, but disabling turbo doesn't...

    Yes, you paid for it, but disabling turbo doesn't make any difference in games. With turbo on and throttling I actually had worse performance. However, if you want to retain full turbo speed, I...

    Personally I haven't ordered a bottom cover yet, but earlier on this forum someone recommended this site.

    Last week I brought my GL702VM to the official Asus repair shop, to repaste the CPU and...

    Hi,

    Is anyone using thermal grizzly kryonaut here? What improvements did you see?

    Yes, it's worth it. I use cooler master notepal u3 plus. It's fans are completely configurable, so I placed them under the ventilation holes. It generally means 5 degree difference at least.

    You can download the bios file from the asus gl702vm driver page

    I'm glad that you could reduce the temps. Can you please share the afterburner profile?

    New bios update is out for the GL702VM.
    BIOS 306
    Optimize system performance

    Damn, you are precise. Nice research.

    I would like to do drilling and repasting down the road, too, but I am not sure whether there are warranty stickers under the hood preventing me from...

    Thanks for your detailed post. Nice results. Did the screws of the heatsink have warranty stickers on them?

    I have never experienced that. What kind of uv have you applied?

    I bought a generic vacuum cooler from ebay and before bios 305 it helped a bit. After updating the bios, using the vacuum definetly increases the temps. The fan curve might have been changed.

    The...
  14. Yes.

    Yes.

    I assume you're talking about the GL702VM. If yes, there was an improvement. The fps drops are completely gone and without any tweaking the laptop runs in the mid 80's.

    However, if you use some...

    Did you click on the Apply button?

    Nice video! Do you know what does the chip do that has the extra heatsink, which you installed?
  18. I think by "4/5" he means 0,8C in the video :D...

    I think by "4/5" he means 0,8C in the video :D It doesn't seem to be that useful, but it's a fairly inexpensive mod, maybe worth trying.

    what chip is that btw?
  19. Disabling turbo doesn't affect performance in...

    Disabling turbo doesn't affect performance in games at all. Just try out. However, in regular desktop apps the extra clock speed could be useful. I set up hotkeys to disable/enable it on the fly....

    Try out throttlestop. I don't think this behavior is normal

    Cheers bro, it wasn't rude at all :D

    I agree with you, especially what upsets me the most is the poor implementation of the ventilation holes. This machine could have been a dream out of the box...

    I see. I made a lot of assumptions, thanks for clearing this out.

    Sorry StarJack, it's my bad, i thought you had a GL502VM. :D

    When I was deciding between the GL502VM and GL702VM I clearly remember that the only difference between them (other than bigger screen, more max ram capacity plus one more vent) was thunderbolt 3.

    The Gl502vm wasnt advertised as a tb3 capable device, so why expect high speed controller in it? Only the GL702VM has tb3 according to Asus
