    After a long fight between pa71es and this laptop, I found a good offer for the msi (about 200€ less than the clevo with same spec).

    Once the laptop will arrive, I will install a different SSD and repaste the GPU and CPU with thermal grizzly kryonaut (it will get moved a bit and as far i have understood, LM is not the best solution). To avoid to open it twice, I would also like to change the pads(artic or minus pad 8), does anyone know the thickness (and in case an approximate area) of the stock ones?

    hello, recently i changed mines on GE73VR 8RF, i used 1.0 mm hope this will help, and keep in mind there is one area near the cpu where you need to use around 2.0mm its small area.

    Thank you very much! May I ask you which brand did you buy? Everything fine? Do you know approximatly how much area did you use?

    i used Arctic - Thermal Pad 50 x 50 x 1.0 mm it was more than enough to change all the pads.
