    Your doing more than you realize in bringing down generated heat. Problem is the laptop is happy letting heat get out of control before demanding more from the fans (I'm betting after the cpu/gpu undervolt you've now applied your fans are turning slower than before). Part of getting the temps under control is maintaining the fans boosted at least 20-30%. Drilling holes under the 2 main fans makes a nice difference as well.

    btw that curve you posted above has a jump at the 1025mv mark, that's towards the upper end of voltage so it will still make a decent amount of heat with that curve. Also, how did your measure the watts used by the GPU?
    The curve keeps the voltage at 850mV actually. I have tested that by running tomb raider benchmark repeatedly.

    I keep the fans boosted at 100% actually when I game. But it is annoying to do so manually before and then reset it after. I was thinking it would be good if I could let the fans hit a boost of 100% as soon as temps hit 70. But seems like it is not possible.

    I was monitoring the power in HWInfo.

    I am at -135mV at CPU and the system is stable. I will go -140mV soon.

    Don't want to drill holes right now, but if it comes to that, I would rather drill a neat pattern with a 1-2 mm drill instead of going gung ho and drilling a 45mm hole and then cover it with a speaker grill.

    Nice!

    Hey, what did you used to glue those things? these are like sound speaker protector or something like that? i did some small holes, my computer performance improved, but i'm still getting it at 85 degrees, so i will probably do the same, but i'm thinking, i will use a screw with rubber head and a nut, probably.

    Powerglue glued from the inside.
    you have to pay attention to the grill thickness, sometimes it curves too much it became longer than the laptop feet. i fix mine by using rubber feet that came as bonus when i bought the opolar vacuum.

    here's a picture of the grill cover, maybe you could reverse google search to find sellers.

    How did you test? For how long?

    And what were the previous temps like on the same tests?

    my test is using ROTTR:
    - 1 benchmark directly
    - wait on menu until CPU temp touches 70C then benchmark again.
    I find this quite accurate to get max gaming temp since the other games never touched that high.
    CPU temp is always higher than GPU temp, and usually about 5-6C difference between them.
    to be honest the score is more or less the same than before the mod. but usually i test at night when it's cooler(i live in tropical climate) and the result you saw was tested at noon, so I need to conduct a test 1 more time later when it's night.

    *update*
    tested on 8.30PM

    I think I've hit the limit on how low these laptop air cooling temps can get.

    is this with the highest settings? My ROTR benchmark always hits 80, i have a gtx 1070.

    when you say before the mod, is it with opolar vacuum or without?

    I would say that is pretty good temps.

    Not highest, it's the highest my GPU allows since mine is 3GB, going higher settings would just be counter-productive. usually medium-high with benchmark fps averaging @ 95 fps.
    before the mod is with the opolar vacuums. i have to say, having 2 opolars and turning off turbo boost are by far the methods that bring down the temp most. and please do note that my opolars aren't attached perfectly so they're not performing at their best too.

    I honestly believe 2 Opolars installed have just as much an effect on temps as drilled holes and may even work better. In conjunction with the bag of tricks of course (undervolting/disabling turbo).

    yes, this i can confirm, but i have to try one more thing. the ventilation of the grill covers i use seem to be too tight, it blocks much of the cool wind from my cooling pad. i need to try benchmarking without the grills later.
