    In CB you tripped the PL2 limit two times (this isn't normal since your PL2 limit is 110w), but it didn't impact the clock speed.

    From here it is a mater of fine tuning and luck in the BGA silicon lottery! You need to test for your max stable UV, you have to reduce the nr. of running services, use Phoenix's guide for optimizing windows.

    You can also increase the current limit (although, this wasn't what limited your performance in CB, it was only triggered in prime and considering how stressful prime is, I would consider it normal behavior).

    You need to run CBr15 in a loop or just manually run CBr15 without pause between sessions to have a better picture of the avr. performance in longer runs (capture the scores for each consecutive run).

    Ok just fixed the OCC. Regarding how easily it goes up and down, it looks like I am not far away

    Back to business. Raz8020 what can I do to fix that?

    Ok thank you for your time. I could spend hours on that. But, I am not trying to break the benchmarks. I am only trying to make sure my machine is generally working well. This is the only reason I started running the benchmarks.

    It could still be a considerable amount of performance that you're leaving on the table (depending on the usage), but I understand if you don't want or have the time to further tweak you laptop.

    Trust me they can go much higher even with LM. I would suggest play for 1 hour. Mine were at 83C maximum as yours but today the case is different (Even though average is at 80s I get spikes). I stressed it more? How could I? Temps under benchmarks are still as posted before without thermal throttle or temp spikes.

    By the way, did you replace all the thermal pads including the white ones? Did you use the same thickness that iunlock stated? By the way, there are no 0.1mm thermal pads. What brand is your heatsink?
