    Red face Add a heatsink on gl502vmk

    I also made a change on the gl502vmk which reduced the heat by 5 degrees.

    Without the need to take my back cover off, can someone identify this chip which Nevortic applied the heatsink to ?

    Oooh this is interesting!! Did you stress test it with a high demanding game? The laptop usually goes over 90°C at certain games without a cooling pad. If this little heatsink helps during gaming I'll buy it instantly.

    After adding that dissipator I noticed that the video card has dropped 4 degrees with strong stress on it. I'm making a heatsink so I can cool all that part under the cpu and gpu where there is no heatsink.

    Is the chip you added that little heatsink to part of the graphics chipset? what exactly is its function?

    In very few words....
    Is a support chip that manages the data the gpu has to handle.
    By testing, I noticed that the chip was very hot.
    So I decided to put on a heatsink and see the effects.
    It's a passive heat sink so it does not do miracles.

    I'd say 5 degrees off the GPU under load is pretty close to a miracle for the effort involved in that mod.
