    I haven't tried new pads yet. Someone who has says they are all 1mm except for one that is 1.5mm. They used GP-Extreme because they said they compressed better. I've seen people in discord have good results with LM. I'm just not brave enough to try it .. yet. :D
    I don't know about drives. I see a 2tb Samsung 970 Evo Plus for $280 on Amazon.

    I can't remember what stock is in the bios but whatever it is that's what I've been using. I don't understand why you can't get over +100 on the core in Afterburner.

    Thanks for the reply! Currently debating if I should LM or not, I'm down to do it since it does not seem so dangerous if you protect everything around and have steady hands (I'm also a surgeon so I think I got the hands thing down).
    Cooling pads are all over the place on the discord, gonna keep digging till i find the right specs - Also read somewhere that the VRM's have no pads on them, can anyone confirm this?
    970 evo plus will have to do, unless i can get my hands on a inland performance for 280 which might be overkill since it is gen4 but hey, e16 controller and good price make it an interesting deal.

    I wouldn't worry about LM so much but I store mine in a case at night standing upright. I've seen some good methods to keep LM in its place so I may get brave as the laptop gets older. I don't remember for certain but I think the VRM's do have pads.

    btw .. this is the stock paste. Its fairly good paste and one reason the 7i has good thermals. I ordered some a couple weeks ago just to have around if I need it. I think it takes 3 or 4 weeks to get it. https://www.ebuy7.com/item/631006993629
