    Still getting idles of 60C despite the LM now sticking to the heatsink.. and now the GPU may be perma broken..

    Crashed during firestrike..

    EDIT: survived timespy benchmark and sky diver stress test, 94% on sky diver
    Passed a second firestrike stress test

    EDIT2: in thinking about it after calming down a little the crash may have been caused by undervolting, the laptop 'survived' firestrike EX and Ultra stress tests without crashing

    Still worried about that broken bit on the GPU

    Idle is at 55-65C, getting 90s in XTU stress test, the LM is definitely sticking to the heatsink now that its been cleaned, GPU idle is around 40-50C

    These are my temps on both 2014 and 2015 Razer Blades while playing FFXIV (since it is the game i play the most) with no cooler or any additional space between the flat surface and the laptop, just to give you an idea of what your temps should be depending on your system specs and TIM.

    RB 2014 i7-4702/GTX870M (Conductonaut)

    CPU:
    Average: 78c - 80c
    Max (short spike): 90c

    GPU:
    Average: 82c
    Max: 85c

    RB 2015 i7-4720/GTX970M (Arctic MX-4)

    CPU:
    Average: 85c - 92c
    Max (short spike): 97c

    GPU:
    Average: 75c
    Max: 82c

    Yeah.. I'm getting higher temps than your traditional paste 2015 (mine is a 2015 model) with the LM, at least on the CPU and only par on the GPU. The CPU also seems to struggle to return to 50C after running a 3DMark stress test.

    Hoping for a bit more advice on what to try before i give in and try to clean up the heatsink of the jbweld and stuff and try kryonaut on the CPU. Would removing the LM from the CPU, cleaning it, and then reapplying help possibly? The haswell CPU is also wider than the copper heatpipes, not sure what to be doing about that.

    The replacement heatsink i dont know what to do about either, is pinched heatpipes going to have a significant temperature effect?

    Fill the gaps between the heatpipes with thermal paste, use the dot method on the GPU and the line method on the CPU, you need to apply a bit more paste on this laptop.
