    There's been more activity in this thread than in a long time, lol.

    @evomod, perhaps you have a weird TS setting? Maybe try intel XTU to set the undervolt and see what kind of score you get. I did think my 112k stock realbench score was much much higher than I thought it should be. I was actually hoping for something more along the lines of 95k so I could really tout how good the mods were, lol. Not sure what changes you're referring to in your post though.

    @abujafar - if you are just using heaven and you didn't specify to use the igpu, you're not really testing your undervolt. I don't have the 9570 anymore or I'd double check that setting igpu voltage only works, but I know it does on every other laptop in the house right now, lol.

    I'm sure I missed tons of questions but am running out the door right now, feel free to repost them or whatever.

    @custom90gt I did explicitly activate the integrated card. It seems pretty ok until 150.

    What is the height of the thermal pads on VRAM modules? They look 1mm to me, can anybody confirm?

    I believe they are 1mm although they don't all make contact with the heatsink, lol.

    @abujafar
    The VRAM thermal pads are 1mm, i measured them after my last repasting

    @custom90gt
    I have tried Intel XTU, but the results don't where better and the settings are not that good compared to TS.

    But I tried some other thinks...
    1. Closed all the tasks in the taskmanager before testing, that was the biggest brake of performance.
    2. Done a new repasting with less thermal paste and added 2mm thermal pads on the heatsink directly above the CPU/GPU (some small stripes).
    3. Changed some settings in ThrottleStop > CPU-Core: -220mV | CPU-Cache: -167mV | iGPU/SA: -110mV

    Than I made some benchmarking and got good results (in my point of view)
    + Temperatures with all cores are within 2-3°C
    + 'Cloud Gate' 25692 > 26739
    + 'Unigine Heaven Extreme' 1023 > 1074
    + 'RealBench' 93354 > 104850
    + 'PCMark 8 Work Acce.' - > 5370 (did the wrong test in the first run)

    ToDo:
    a) With the CPU-Core voltage I need to make some Prime95 that I can see if it run this settings for a longer time, and/or if i can set them lower.
    b) Set up the profiles in TS for a better battery life/ performance.
    c) Look how to set up Afterburner to get better temps./ performance of the GPU.

    Thanks again to all who helped me :)

    Careful - offloading too much heat to the backplate is known to make things worse long-term.

    Hi guys!
    A lot of message have been posted and it is quite difficult to summerize all this stuff about repaste and thermal pad.
    Can someone tell me what is the better choice for thermal improvment (without taking to much risk) : repaste (which paste do you recommand ?) and/or new thermal pad (which one and where to put them ?) and/or undervolt (if so, which software and which set up ?)
    Thank you very much for helping !
    Have a nice day

    I asked him on any news on it and he replied: Ordered two heatsink designs for the 9560, but am currently out of the country for work. I will do the testing as soon as I return.
