Trying to mess with MSR this morning on my Intel laptop :
Well, ok. Time to build an AMD rig.
Here's a french tutorial explaining how to undervolt with XTU
Maybe its voltage regulator is overheating, it could be a missing / misplaced pad on one of those modules.
You should be used to fix improperly mounted heatsink by now with this kind of overpriced Alien Stuff.
Repaste alone won't be enough, you need to balance the heatsink pressure too.
Those are GP Gelid Extreme pads, 0.5mm and 1.0 mm are fine for the VRAM modules and most of GPU's Chokes and VRM.
For CPU Chokes and VRM i suggest...
It wasn't really the extra pressure who helped. Graphite pads are pressure sensitive too.
First try, cores 0&2 were 90°C+ and cores 1&3 where...
Here's some results with my 15R3
Both GPU and CPU are undervolted (CPU -150mV), ambient temp is about 28°C
First with OCCT
Samsung's memories are more stable and OC better. That's all.
Here are my Vbios :
GTX 1070 86.O4.54.00.1C
GTX 1070 86.O4.39.00.36
I was busy (workplace) after he tried to extract the connector, maybe he changed the lid with. When i was back he had finished and was about to...
The wireless card connector broke when i removed it with tweezers for a mandatory day-one repast, the connector and parts of its circuit track...
6820HK + 1070 15R3 bough in October 2016 here:
In its first year i had :
2 Mother-Boards swap
1 wireless card and antenna
1 1080 IPS screen...
Just to confirm what you said about the dust:
I cleaned the side heatsink before taking this shot.
Easy, copy the whole 17R4 owner's Lounge thread and replace 4 cores by 6 cores.
Good thing is the missing parts was more of a cosmetic than a really effective piece of heatsink:...
With a CPU core reaching 88°C... I think the fans are very very busy... And loud, very loud.
It was re-pasted... And it's running at 3.9Ghz...
B-b-but they said improved cooling system and Up to 5GHz ! What'll hapen if OCed out of the BOX...
First screen shows 10°C diff WITH Power Limit Throtlling (See the little bump in OCCT's frequency chart in the up-right corner ?). Your expensive...
Yeah 800 pages and still heating issues... Sad :(
