    No throttling, highest temps in the 80's...why are you frightened?

    The cooling is a shared heatsink design (hence cinebench only 74c and in games much hotter) causes massive issues on games such as AC:O, Shadow of the tomb raider etc. As you can see on the video, far cry reached 87 and 87c on both GPU and CPU, this was with a rather low CPU usage but high GPU usage, with the mentioned games (which are far more CPU intensive) it easily reaches throttlingpoint and that's actually really scary.

    So the problem with the cooling design of this is the shared cooling design?

    @Donald@HIDevolution have you tested the 1060 in terms of temps?

    Almost all newer laptops come with shared heatsink. All this design does is puke heat over from GPU to Cpu heatsink and grills if both graphics and cpu is fully loaded. They make this design due thinner and slimmer chassis design. + GPU with high TDP need better cooling than the thin and flimsy heatsink grills for the GPU part can provide. Puke heat over to cpu grills can lower GPU temps. They can still use maxed out W/hr battery size but the battery has to be in bigger footprint. With the results... MB PCB design have to be smaller to fit in the slim and thin chassis with the bigger battery who eat up the space.

    Just look at Alienwares flawed TRIPOD shared heatsink cooling. Not even space on MB for needed attacment screws for the Cpu part.

    No, only with the nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070.

    After AIDA64 Stress test
    Stock: GPU = 75C - CPU = 95C
    After Grizzly Conductonaut + Fujipoly Extreme Thermal Pads upgrade and -110mV: GPU = 70C - CPU = 75C

    Yes and no, shared heatsink isn't bad if your mass and fans are good enough. Obviously games like assassins creed would thermal throttle the hell out of the system.

    My Hero 2 throttles like crazy on Farcry. How the hell can laptop manufacturers get away with highway robbery for so many years I will never know. I get massive fps drops in Black Ops 4, 120+ to 30 every 5-10 seconds. Not sure if throttling or what.

    Have you, or did your vendor, repaste? If so, with what?

    Have you undervolted it?
