    Hi guys,
    Quick question. Got an old Medion version (Sandy bridge i7, 560M) of the laptop. Chassis very similar to the MSI GT70 - but presumably generations behind.

    Repasted it recently. When I stress it with Furmark - the laptop automatically shuts at 80 degrees (before that, the fan spins loudly and airway is clear). It's pasted with MX5 - repasted it again. Would this likely to be a card issue? or MB issue? (I think thermal pad degraded quite a bit too - but don't think that would cause the problem?)

    Thanks!

    Are you sure the heatpipes didn't get damaged?

    What is the version of BIOS & EC you have on this system? Also, what tool are you using to monitor the temperatures?
