    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. This way, when I'm gaming, the laptop runs quite cooler (like 5°C), otherwise I keep it enabled so I don't loose any performance when it matters.

    If you're interested, I made a guide.

    No thanks, I paid for 3.4. And I'm fine with the temps I have now. Disabling turbo isn't worth it.

    A user posted a video in another thread of a small heatsink mod he did on the GL502VMK, claiming an apparent 4-5 degree Celsius drop in temperatures on his GPU. I'll post the link to his video here because I think it should be in this thread:

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

    what chip is that btw?

    I'm the author of the video. After doing this, I also tried to do these things:
    - undervolt + 99% CPU with -100mV
    - undervolt gpu
    Now playing rainbow six all ultra siege and the temperatures are:
    MAX CPU: 70 °
    MAX GPU: 68 °

    Do you want me to make a video for you to see the temperatures?

    Nice video! Do you know what does the chip do that has the extra heatsink, which you installed?

    There was a change on the gpu so I think it is part of the data management that the gpu processes.
