    Thoughts, advice, suggestions?

    AORUS X5V7 - I7-7820HK.

    20 minutes in to Farcry 5, fans set to gaming in C&C, GPU & CPU both set to max in C&C, ambient temps ~15*C.

    [​IMG]

    Any suggestions needs to based on using AORUS's own software/XTU (pre-installed for C&C).

    I'm looking for the best temps/performance out of the box, no repasting or 3rd party tools.

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: GPU temps max at 80*C, I can live with that.

    It's like saying you want to fix issues with your car but refuse to refill oil into it. You have to do it, otherwise it will break.

    Repaste or deal with throttle + broken notebook in the near future. It really isn't rocketscience.

    Just repaste the system just not with liquid metal. Can you set custom fan curves on that system?

    Also undervolt the CPU if you can.

    This seems as expected to me; running the 7820HK at max stock OC with stock paste, voltage, and gaming profile should result in CPU temps in the 90s. The gaming fan profile (I think all the aorus profiles) cares about the GPU temps and not CPU temps; your GPU temps at 80C are fine, hence the fans are not spinning up anywhere near 100% to cool the CPU. I'm sure if you ran the fans at 100% you'd see a significant decrease in the CPU temp. Like others mentioned (and I'm sure you know), lowering the voltage would certainly help, but I question why even bother running at max CPU OC when gaming.... it will make little difference to performance (unless farcry 5 is heavily cpu dependent). My suggestion is to run at stock clocks for the 7820, and undervolt it; you'll have similar frame rates with much lower temps/power usage and quieter machine.

    Leave the CPU at stock, if you don't want to use any third party tools to undervolt or repaste.

    The laptop simply cannot hold 4GHz or over under both CPU & GPU loads.

    The objective behind no third party tools was to present feedback to AORUS on the matter.

    However, it appears to have been a random one off with the constant high temps as I cannot reproduce the same results and today's ambient has been much warmer. :confused:

    Why not? He have learned from before and will probably do a great job with Liquid metal... MiSJAH's guide on how NOT to Liquid Metal repaste!!

    It may seem counter intuitive but you will likely have a better gaming experience if you disable the CPU turbo just while gaming. I've done this on many thin machines and have had great luck with it (including my old x7 DT V6).

    This keeps the CPU much cooler, and most games won't benefit or need a 4Ghz CPU on all cores anyway. In addition to that, your GPU will likely run a little cooler and you can choose to leave it that way, or overclock it to gain even more performance at the same temps as when your CPU was adding to the chassis thermal load.

    You can leave turboboost on for benchmarking and non-gaming loads.

    SO I re-ran the test and got similarly high temps again. I recorded the result with HWiNFO64 and sent them to AORUS.

    This was the response I got:

    Stock thermal paste is terrible.
