    Sure i can here's a screnshot of my oc curve and a zip of my afterburner profiles folder.

    Hello,

    So I managed to pick up around 6 months ago a GL702VM with the following Specs for £580:

    i5-6300HQ
    16GB DDR4 Memory
    GTX 1060 6GB
    1TB HDD
    500GB NVME WD Black


    Pretty good deal for the money considering the additional cost of the NVME drive memory upgrade and overall cost of the 17inch laptop itself new. I have been using it for the past few months I must admit not as much as maybe I should (I have a gaming pc) and one of the reasons was that whenever I tried to play any game that really tested the system e.g. PUBG the CPU would hit the high 80's then 90c same with the gpu and for me it just seemed like I couldn't game for a period of time without A) being distracted by the fact the laptop was trying to take off and B) the high temps over a long period of time. Idle temps were around 45 which didn't seem so bad but again maybe didn't help.

    I decided to good found these forums and looked through setting an underclock of the CPU to around -130 and using MSI's profile 1 (somewhere here) I managed to pick up a laptop cooling pad which did drop the temp's down to the mid to low 80s's depending on games and then over a period of 40 mins or so the temps would slowly rise to just touching 90 but at least my lap felt cool.

    I finally decided my only option was to repaste the CPU and GPU along with putting pads on the memory chips in the hope of making the machine better. Here is what I brought all from amazon I ended up paying slightly more for thermal pads than using the suggested Artic Pads which are rated for thermal transfer of 6W/mk. The reason I did this was because these pads are rated with a thermal transfer conductivity of 12W/mk making them in theory twice as conductive which can only be a good thing.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I ordered 1 x 0.5mm 80x40 and 1 x 1m 80 x 40


    For thermal paste I was going to get thermal grizzly but I recently applied this to my desktop build and found it a bit of a pain so stuck with the trusted Artic Silver MX4

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


    Here are some pictures of the process. I completely forgot to take photos after I had cleaned it up and applied pads / paste but here is the mess I uncovered. You will see that the CPU basically had no thermal paste on the chip and had been discolouring the copper heatsink so I think it was wise to do this.








    Results time !!!!


    So after spending around an hour cleaning the laptop up which was a horrendous job measuring and cutting pads applying paste and reassemblying it was time to run some tests to see how the laptop performed after I had spend so long and around £18 quid on it.

    On idle the tempatures have dropped to 34c which is a reduction in 11c so I am very pleased with this.

    Gaming - I loaded PUBG played it for around 40 mins or so and the CPU hit around the 62 mark and gpu just over 70 again not touching anything else just the repaste work which I was really pleased about. The fan noise has dropped a huge amount the laptop feels very cool.

    For the ultimate test I can Furmark along with a CPU stress tester to really see what would happen now to the laptop if it were left at an unrealistic load for a period of time and the below image are my results.




    Again really pleased averaging around 72c on the cpu and 74-76 on the GPU. Ignore the lowest temps as I had rebooted the laptop and started the testing straight after playing pubg so the temps were slightly higher to begin with than the claimed idle.


    Overall I am extremely pleased and would recommend anyone who owns one of these laptops to consider a repaste and pads. Again I opted to spend alittle more on pads in the hope that if it made 2-4c difference it was going to be worth the slight increased cost and could mean the difference between a cool system with no throttling and one that was still just about throttling.



    Any questions please feel free to let me know I will try to help where possible

    You achieved great results. I am now planning to do the same as my warrantly expired.
    Because it will be the first time I am doing a repaste, my question is probably dumb but `How can I remove the old messy paste from the memory chips, CPU and GPU´?
    Is there any special technique or any special chemical I should use?

    Thank you and good work!

    Actually it would be very helpful and useful to see the photos of your system, especially the pics of the applied cooling pads.

    Thanks, but for some reason I can't download the ZIP file, because the forum kicks me to the login page. Could you please upload it to any external file exchanger?

    Thank you and good work!
    For cleaning suprisingly I used alcohol wipes that you use for injections as a friend of mine had 100's of them laying around. They worked pretty well I ended up using about 30 however they did take some cleaning on the memory chips and due to the mess there was alot of thermal past around some of the little capacitors. I ended up wrapping a cotton bud around a wipe and just gently wetting / rubbing the paste away. Anywhere that wouldn't budge I wrapped a wipe around a very very thin flathead screw driver only to dislodge dirt and not clean.


    Unfortunetly the laptop is all back together so I can't show photos however I used the below image for pad sizes and fitting

    Be careful with those sizes from https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...e16#post676891.

    Here's my question if those 0.5mm and 1.0mm thicknesses work well - https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...e24#post735152

    And here are my results after putting 0.5mm and 1.0mm as in that pic - https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...e25#post736875

    Try to download from here: http://www.filedropper.com/msiafterburnerprofiles

    The undervolted (overclocked) profile is Profile 2 the others (1, 3, 4, 5) are just default voltage curves.

    Had heating problems with my new GL503VM ( i7 / gtx 1060 6fgb / 32 gb ram ). After reading through all this forum i finally decided to do something about it. During a few hours of Fallout 76 i would have a constant 83-85 degrees Celsius with 90 spikes.

    Undervolted the CPU only to -0.110V. Opened it up and repasted with Noctua NT-H2. First time ever opening a laptop. Was s**ting bricks . Cleaned the old paste, applied the new one ( reconnected the ribbon for the lights which was disconnected from the factory apparently ) and hoped that my laptop will start again. Pressed the power button...nothing..dead. Of course i forgot the very thing i was repeating to myself - don't forget to reconnect the battery. Died a little inside, reconnected the battery and started it.

    2 days of intense gaming and so far:

    - idle temps are almost same 45-50 degrees
    - intense gameplay temps are way down. maximum i am seeing right now is 70 with peaks of 75 degrees.

    Couldn't be happier with the Noctua NT-H2. I highly recommend it to those that (like myself) are too afraid to use liquid metal pastes.

    Great results did you end up putting new pads or anything on the chips ? I am not sure how much the 503 differs to the 702 but mine as you could see was really poorly done and I think (no real evidence) that the pads have made a massive difference in temps and performance
