    replace those crappy blue pads with fujipoly extreme thermal pads. 17.0 W/mK, sexy and expensive

    That's what a lot of us have been saying.
    Though yeah our systems, that includes me,Prema, johnkssss, Fox ,etc. Have every important component making contact, since we know there are thermal pads for a reason. However stock systems have these things either way too thick or not making contact at all, which over time kills certain components. Along with the fact that Clevo heatsink QC is dog **** at best.

    I fix it for you:vbthumbsup:
    Rather use those softer 11.0 or even the better 14.0 W/mK variants. Cheaper and better:)

    yea those usually good enough. for my xps m2010 though i use those extreme ones for 17 w/mk cause those GPU are known with bad memory chip solder. gotta use the best and down the voltage as much as possible.

    Usually good enough?:D Those 17 w/mk pads aint the best one. The 14 w/mk pads is softer not so stiff, aka they will suck better around the components:eek:,+ the cooling is in fact a notch better. + cheaper:D Big win!! But FujiPoly don't advertice them much. I wonder why?:p Guess why.

    I am not complaining about my systems temps, but questioning Clevo's decision to reduce GPU component cooling with every iteration of their GRID heatsink, while at the same time they have to deal with a bunch of burned cards being returned each week.

    My reply was in regards to the reduced 'amount/coverage area' of heatpipes for the slave GPU on the TM1 heatsink compared to the Master GPU and the older (better?!) DM3 heatsink design.

    Side note: I have in-fact Fujipoly of their maximum cooling capacity in every single spot of the DM3 (the original revision which still has all the heatpipes in place, not the single heatpipe KM1 model as seen in the picture below):

    The above is the thermal pad setup, I am using:

    17.0 W/mK > 0.5, 1 & 1.5mm
    6.0 W/mK > 2, 2.5 & 3mm

    Only the 4mm pads are still stock here.

    And yes only use 17.0 W/mK version if you don't...brick...cough...have to disassemble the system frequently as otherwise they simply crumble away... ;)

    Or just like to take it apart :p the fit is far more important than the type of pad so long as it's not total garbage.
