    Repasting the GPU & CPU with premium thermal paste like Arctic MX-4 makes a huge difference with temps. At least that's how it is for myself, as I've applied the same thermal paste to my GT73VR-286UK model. I was experiencing temps of up to 90c with the i7 7820HK at full load. But now I'm getting temps up of around 75-80c for the CPU, and 75c for the GTX 1080. Depending on load.

    Repasting with premium thermal paste definitely helps as these MSI laptops arrive with pretty bad thermal paste work. MX-4 lasts for a good eight years without diminishing performance before you need to repaste.

    If you still find the temps are not to your personal liking after repasting, you could replace the thermal pads with 3rd party ones that supposedly cool the components better than the stock ones do.
