    Hey, i am undervolting everything to 1,65 ( as seen in my first and last post :D ).
    I would think that padding everything wouldnt be such a good thing, but when it is not throttling for you then it seems to work :O (will try it when i get new thermal pads)
    Still waiting for my heatsinks to arrive to test them too...

    Not sure, because the idea is to get the heat out by convection, so there must be room for air flow.

    Today i finally got my heat spreaders and installed them, all pictures of what i did are in imgur link : https://imgur.com/a/ScrxJEA

    My conclusion is that this does NOT help much and it NOT worth the time and hassle.

    I will still try to remove copper plate entirely and allow thermal pads to contact back plate directly, maybe it will help a bit, but i doubt it :(

    TLDR: Would not recommend since the gains are not noteworthy, just buy a decent laptop :)

    I understand iunlock padded the heat spreaders to the cut part of the copper sheet, and made some effort to redirect more cooling air towards the VRMs.

    I find it odd that you don't have any improvements. I have tons of logs showing great results from several different 9560s. What is the main issue you are having?

    Hey, i need to clarify myself here:
    I am sure there are minor improvements, but they do not stop throttling while running games (that is the whole reason i tried this mod).
    I could run hwinfo to post results here if anyone is interested.


    EDIT: i really think that removing the copper plate and trying to do wind tunnel directly in contact with back plate would help overall cooling, will try it tonight.

    Only way to get rid of throttling is to uninstall Intel DPTF and monitor temperatures by yourself.
