    Anyone already know that Dreamonic shutdown his website Voltground? it is sad because I still about to do a flashing (again) in my bios and I couldn't reach him before he shutdown the site. :(
    He's the best person where I can get help and now he's nowhere to be contacted :(

    Guys, what things should I do to improve performance on my laptop? I'm planning to change the thermal paste in a couple of days, but I really want to know if there's something else I should do like flashing custom BIOS or something to have a better experience with this laptop.

    Also, I just want you to know that I've already disassembled each key, one by one, and cleaned both the underside of the keys and the clicking mechanism that had two years of dirt build up, which solved the uneven backlight effect of the already dim LEDs. It was a tedious job, but the end result was worth.

    Cutom bios for gpu. Could do that but voltground doesn't work anymore. Then CPU undervolt. And if you can you can do intake mod.

    What I recommend:
    1. Disable turbo-boost and undervolt CPU to reduce amount of heat.
    2. Change thermal paste, stock one is awful. I'm using liquid metal, but I wouldn't recommend it, because it's thermal performance degrades over time and you may need to reapply it.
    3. Seal gaps between blowers and radiators.

    But if you are brave enough, you can try some additional steps:
    1. Intake mod
    2. Custom vbios for GPU
