    You think that would make a difference? Should I try and cut if off? Doubt if it will make a huge difference

    If you're not willing to try then you can always enjoy 95c gameplay.

    Doesn't look like its touching there, the problem is usually on the VRM part, there need to be some bits grinded out, because Dendrit3 has tons of thermal pads everywhere, those can't be helping neither the die to heatsink contact nor helping the VRM's due to such thick thermal pads..

    Remove all thermal pads, remove GPU from laptop, try to fit the heatsink in the GPU, see where it its, grind/file any parts of the heatsink that touch chokes and other components until you have the heatsink laying totally flat with the die.

    It does touch there. Also clevo heatsinks are very barebones, you dont need to grind off anything unlike MSI heatsinks, you need to use very fat thermal pads or stack them for them to even touch VRMs.

    It looks like that small leg(maybe its an alignment tab, not sure its function TBH) is what causing the bad temps, because the heatsink doesn't look like its totally flat.

    I would cut that out.

    We can use my method of figuring how the fit is.

    Take a very thin layer of thermal paste on your GPU, spread it around evenly, then screw the heatsink on, after that remove the heatsink, and show us a picture of the GPU die with the thermal paste on it, that way we can see how the pressure is applied on the die.

    Yeah I just cut that off, seems I got somewhat better contact, its now laying flat. But I still got bad temps at load 90c +

    You should use only a very small dot of paste with doing the contact tests, so you can see a clear pattern.

    What paste are you using?

    is that with the cooper shim?

    What is the translucent residue around the shim?

    Your heatsink doesn't hit the choke like @Danishblunt expected because you have the shim.

    Yeah I smeared a little bit too much, using kryonaut, can redo it later. Yeah it's with copper shim. If you check my post at second page, I sealed the edges of the shim with a transparent sealant, put LM between the shim and the heatsink, to prevent leakage

    I think your shim isn't making full contact with the heatsink, the shim should be free to move.

    Could the sealant be interfering with how much contact it makes?
