    The 6520g is the APU, the 6650m is the linked adapter. When combined in asymmetrical crossfire, they create the 6720g2.

    Download AMD System Monitor, it'll show the 2 adapters and the "6720g2" label will be clearly stated for your machine. Mine currently shows 6620g and 6550m, 6740g2 combined as I upgraded to an A8-3500m.

    I also upgraded mine identical to yours; however I think I'm doing something wrong with the thermal paste application OR the re-assembly.

    I used BF3 to get it hot for like 10 seconds, I don't think I should load it up again as it hit 107C.

    Does any1 know how to tell which die is gpu1 from the photo below; is it the apu or the discrete gfx? could it be that I got a little bit of the thermal compound on the resistors on the die?

    Update 1: Or could it be the thermal compound on the gpu ram is prohibiting the heatsink from coming all the way down?


    Update 2: I'm begining to think its some of the thermal compound got on some of the components on the chip the die is connected to.

    Yikes, that's pretty friggin' high! I'm pretty sure the APU is GPU1 as it's the main adapter. What thermal compound are you using? A lot of them are non-conductive, so having it on the resistors wouldn't have much of an effect. Under-application is more dangerous than over-application when it comes to heat. Surely it'll be more efficient if you are in the perfect range, but poor contact will cause major heat issues.

    Is there a manual for opening this laptop? I plan to at least replace the thermal compound...

    I got the manual on my external hd. But I can't add it as attachment because it's too big -_-

    check your pm.. I'll send it over msn

    Sorry for bumping this thread, but I have a question. Where can I get a metal mesh like the one you used? My laptop is overheating on stock without any overclocks. It reaches ~79 C when I play TF2 alone.

    I will be opening it to reapply thermal paste, but I want to make a vent for the fan like you did. I just need the metal mesh. Where can I get it for that size?

    i know this thread is a little old but i was wondering if anyone has had any luck upgrading the apu to an A8 or the video card to say a 6750m or 6770m.

    can probably get a fan mesh and cut it down to size. stores like ncix have them. or you could do what i did, if you have a drill, drill out th profile of the area you want. using a 3/16 or 1/4 bit, just drill a gridlike pattern when the fan intakes.

    from my exerience, getting a laptop cooler with adjustable fans (fans that can be placed under the vents) is the best way to cool a laptop. drilling grid-like hole patterns where the cpu/gpu is located and having the cooler fans directly blow air on them is the best way. this does raise the temps inside the laptop, BUT lowers the temps of the cpu/gpu which is what you want.

    let me know if you need help, i can post some pics of my modded laptop/laptop cooler.
