    hi there, currently im using thermal grizzly kyronaut + standard thermal pads in my aw17 r4 atm, when gaming my temps are typically around the 60-63c mark on cpu and 59-61c on gpu. my question is, would i benefit from liquid metal vs kyronaut on a non-overclockable 6700hq? would the temperatures be much different, or is it only worth going the liquid metal route if i had a overclockable cpu?

    With those temps I honestly wouldn't bother. Could you get better? Maybe, it will probably depend on your ambient temps, but at those temps ( which are great btw ) then you have literally nothing to worry about temp wise. Most people would kill for those temps.

    ah ok, ty for replying, i did run a heaven + prime95 stesstest, the cpu ended up at 73c, but i think thats an unrealistic senario since ive heard thats a power virus of sorts anyways, worst i saw was 64c on cpu when playing guild wars 2 in a heavy 50+ player battle, which is a very cpu intensive game

    Those temps are nothing to be worried about. These chips can easily handle being run at 90C for extended periods. 70C CPU and 60C GPU Is even good for a desktop chip. Honestly, I wouldn't bother
