    I did pretty much as OP asked about, i masked the resistors on the gpu with thin tape and replaced the thermal paste with Coollaboratory liquid pro on both gpu and cpu, now the temps is down to around 75c and no throttling.
    It should have been applied from the factory imo, why hardware companies is willing to gamble their reputation with termal paste never made sense to me.
    Edit: And where is the idea from that liquid metal needs replacing?? I never replaced it on my 8700k and temps are just fine.
    Manufacturers usually play on the safe side. Liquid metal on a mobile device can lead to problems.
    Also, cost.

    I think all GL models have this problem, they are light and thin, mine is very smooth in throttling so not very noticeable, it goes down to around a GTX1070 MaxQ or oc'd gtx1060 when really hot and up to a gtx1080 MaxQ when cool. I did swap cooling paste and put heat pads on the vrm's (warranty breaker), biggest plus on mine its silent almost all the time except on some games.

    But with what i know today i would have bought a G-series not a GL-series. I don't care if it's a kilo heavier i use my laptop as a stationary.

    I have the gl503ge with same specs as OP and mine stays in 60s/low 70s while gaming...both cpu and gpu.

    Well probably I have a hotter version of 8750H .

    Some sources recommended to do this every half a year. And yes, as said before, liquid metal could be fatal for notebooks. After some time it may stick very strongly to radiator, so you probabaly will need to heat it well to disassemble (tools like heat gun will help).
