    If you don't take it apart probably years.
    If you disassemble it frequently they start to crack after only a couple of times.

    If you disassemble, you should always check to see if your pads have degraded, and if they have, replace them.

    If you intend to leave it overclocked for extended periods I would also try and customise the pads for your heatsink, set the card and make sure all chips leave an impression of contact.

    another good reason to have separate heatsink from the CPU. doing work on CPU will result in wearing out GPU thermal pads. for me who doesnt OC GPU, 1 replacement is enough on the pads but i plan to use those fujipoly extreme pads on CPU VRMs though.

    with all that been said, i think clevo should really do a re-design from ground up for upcoming 8 core CFL-S or icelake to accomdate larger heatsinks, more fans, more storage.

    No reason for a new layout really as it's fairly optimal. It would just need to be thicker.

    thicker is about the only thing it could work, if it also mean to make CPU/GPU heatsink radiator thicker, which will mean thicker fans (in height), as well as adding a 4th fan.

    One thing that really helped with the Fujipoly pads was to cut them to size for each of the modules. They rarely broke after i did that. And we save a lot of extra broken pad waste.

    well now i thought thats the normal thing to do, is to cut the pad into each component size we're placing over. if he didnt do that then it'll more than likely to break apart.
