    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.
