The biggest change for me is idle temps. I never had idol temps lower than upper 50's (upper 60's before undervolt). Right now my temps are 45cpu and 52gpu (after hour of use).

    Not a huge win, and having to open the laptop is not for everyone, but there are gains to be made by doing this. I'll do more testing and report if I notice anything else.
    Yes i agree with you here, but i don't really think its too difficult, since you don't even have to take the heatsink/fans off, but im sure there a people that don't feel comfortable even taking the bottom panel off.

    Also of note, I just covered the huge gap between the top of the fan and the copper pipe, I did not look to block every gap.
    I did the top and the sides, the gap on the side was fairly large

    I figured the more air that can be pushed through the fins "should" reduce the temp or a more consistent temp... I am going to remove my electrical tape and use the tape thats used for heat vents. its a little more sturdy and ridged and can handle higher temps.. Thanks again for trying this out.

    On topic : I will test this the next days, today i repasted again and after 1h of p95+furmark i got max 81c on cpu and 71 on gpu, 4C difference than previous.

    PS: but my turbo boost is disabled, else i get to 95+ C on cpu )) i really blame the heatsink, lol

    It looks like this . It's OK in my opionion. Kinda loud, though.

    So i did a more permanent fix using the tape used for heat ducts, its sticky and holds its shape. this work truly works. I even put tape on the bottom of the heat sink. I play Crysis 2 max settings around 78 degrees C. The house is about 73 degrees F. If anyone has any recommendations on a game to test the temp's let me know! (Idle Temps)

    Try GTAV or Battlefield 1.

    Both really push Temps upwards

    Just an idea, but Ricardo from www.coldzero.eu makes really great custom stuff like backplates and custom parts for pc cases. It might be possible for him to built us something for the GL502VS with a little more built quality than tape.
    Somebody from Portugal here by chance? Or one who has the laptop already would have to measure everything really well so that Ricardo can build it without having the laptop at his place.

    Something custom built would be nice. At least i didn't use Duct tape! hahaha :-) I have to say though this tape works very well.. is stiff, forms to the shape well and is sticky!.

    I wonder if there is a way to get better fans?

    That's a decent temp difference!

    Yup, can't complain, remember that i have turbo boost disabled )

    You can get fans/heatsinks and everything else here
