    I would ask Eurocom support... Have they used LM under IHS. If they confirm yes, let it be. Only repaste on top of IHS.
    Edit. NanoGrease can be used inside the CPU. But why change if there is LM there?

    Thanks, I want to reduce thermal heat on my GPU, was playing GTA5 yesterday and GPU max was 91 but average is 84c, I played for 3 hours, CPU was 84c max with average of 81c @4.2Ghz with 1060Mv. Fans were Auto and laptop was on cooling pad.

    What are your settings for GPU voltage?? I think you said you have it at 0.9V, can you post your curve settings?

    I'm not fond of locking FPS, especially for high speed action games like Battlefield, I play online with LOW settings but FHD 120HZ.

    So, I emailed Eurocom customer support about the issue. They told me to run some tests, I ran them, and they haven't gotten back to me yet. I thought I'd post the results here to make sure that it's not a malfunctioning processor, and it's actually a paste issue.

    Also, is there a chance that the paste problem is actually between the die and the IHS? I'm kind of concerned the problem is because they didn't do the delid properly and I have to redo the delid.

    Could be, but I think the results would be worse with a bad paste job between die and IHS. Start with a repaste with already mentioned thermal paste between IHS and heatsink. When you remove the heatsink check if old thermal paste is spread well. Also check if pads have barely contact with underliggend components and not more. Repaste with more or less thermal paste vs. what you alredy seen from previous paste job. And don’t forget the pads. Check everything. Good luck

    When you say the results would be worse, do you mean that other cores are likely to run hot too? If not, I think I should clarify that Core 1 (the problem core) is already running close to 100 degrees are causing the CPU to thermal throttle.
    I'll look into some comprehensive repaste guides and hopefully that solves the problem! I'll report back after (eventually) repasting. Thanks for your help!
