    That's not normal, even on full load and fans on auto. It sure runs a bit hot out of the box, but nowhere near thermal throttling.
    You probably have a physical problem like badly a badly seated cooler. Removing the back cover won't void the warranty but removing the cooler will.
    If you don't want to RMA it, you can try reversible mods like raising the back of the laptop from the table (5mm is more than enough and it gives you a better typing position), taping the gaps between the fans and heatsink, undervolting, etc..

    Repaste

    I'm reviving this old thread because I've decided to repaste my laptop. I've never done this before so I need some advice from you guys.
    I'm planning on using Arctic MX-4 for thermal paste, since it's non-conductive so it won't cause any shorts if I mess up. I've seen some tutorials on youtube. The main doubt I have is whether I can use the same thermal paste for the vram and chipsets around the gpu and cpu, or should I buy separate thermal pads for them. If so, what thickness should I use? I won't overclock since the processor is locked, but I would like to turn turboboost back on. Can I just not repaste the chips and keep the factory paste there itself?
    Can anyone who has repasted their GL502VS give me advice, and tell what other stuff I should look out for? Thanks in advance.

    Posted this again so the thread would come to the front.

    You cannot use the same thermal pads, por the VM modules you need an specific thermal compound or maybe thermal pads 1mm and .5mm as I remember

    Which one should I buy, 0.5 or 1mm? Or which thermal grease should I get? K5 Pro isn't available on amazon in my country. What other compound is good? Is it important to use good quality grease for the vram and chipset if I'm not overclocking? Can I use Arctic MX-4 itself for the vram and chipsets?
    And what is ISOL 6? Can I use that?

    I tried to go down the pad route but wasn't confident in the pressure between the VRM and the heat sink so swapped it all to K5Pro.
    I re-done the CPU and GPU with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut and the VRM with K5 Pro.
    CPU is undervolted by -0.135mV and GPU 1850mhz at 0.950mV.
    When playing Battlefield 1 with ultra settings (Frames limited to 60hz to match the display) I'm seeing temperatures of low 60deg sometimes dipping into the high 50's.

    That's a concern of mine too. If I use thermal pads it might reduce the pressure of the heatsink. K5 Pro isn't available in my country afaik. Can I use MX-4 itself? I saw a youtube video of a guy doing liquid metal repaste for his gl702vs, and he used arctic mx-4 specifically for the vram and chipsets. In another video from a guy called 'Matt Sweeney', he used the same thermal paste for everything; cpu, gpu, vram and chipssets.

    I guess you could try it. The reason K5 Pro is recommended is due to the viscosity of it. When a normal paste is heated, It gets a bit more malleable which may cause issues with contacts between the VRM and heatsink.
    Which country are you in?

    I'm from India. K5 Pro isn't available on Amazon or other online shopping sites. What about ISOL 6? Is that better to use for the chips than mx4?

    I've just had a look and your options are quite limited. You could just use the existing stuff if it isn't dried out then move it to build it up enough for good contact on the heatsink.

    I've never heard of ISOL 6 so couldn't comment. There is also something called ascension Thermal Grease Paste for CPU and Chipsets.

    Either that or you buy various thickness of pads 1mm, 1.5mm and 2mm.

    Can i use this? It's also non-conductive.
