    Sadly your image doesn't work for me. You can upload an image to the forum and post it that way.

    The thermal pads should get here by Wednesday though I'm not really sure how they need to be applied. Should they cover the entire memory stick ?

    Yeah I would just lay it across the stick. Really you just need to do the memory chips, but it won't hurt to do more.

    can I get some feedback ? Feels I'm making very small steps.

    undervolted gpu
    same for the cpu
    still waiting on the cooling pads :(

    I think you're making good headway with it all. That's a good RealBench score. Do you have specific questions though? Where are you at with your undervolt for the cpu and gpu?

    So I got to install the thermal pads on the RAM and on the chip on the right side of the ram (not exactly sure what that one is. Either way it seems to have helped quite a bit. I have also repasted the cpu & gpu

    CPU is @ -110mV and Cache -125mV (do they have to be at the same value ?)
    I did try -140mV though it seemed as the cpu speed would dip to much during high load cpu

    GPU was confusing as hell though I think I figured it out and I'm currently at -120mV

    Here are some screen shots

    Overall it seems quite the step from the ridiculous temps it shipped with.

    I would be surprised to see you start downclocking your cpu at 140mv undervolt. I've not seen it even at 180mv on three different laptops (although each CPU is different), but I'd be shocked if you can't do at least -125 on the cpu as well. They don't have to be the same but typically cache is harder to undervolt and causes the BSODs.

    I'll try to play a bit more with that. Thank you.

    This thread was super helpful. I would have never thought of adding thermal pads to the ram.

    What is the chip die on the right side of the RAM between the battery and the fan ?

    Has anyone seen any benefits from changing the M.2 to a Samsung EVO or some faster storage state device ?
    Mine came with a PC401 NVMe SK hynix 512GB (personally I have never heard of this brand )
