    That's still pretty good, so maybe 5-7 degrees for someone without LM. Did it fit alright under the plastic cover? How thick was it? Maybe I'll try something similar ;)

    What's your max? With Phobya NG Extreme I am getting a peak of 76 degrees on my GPU that only improved to 75 with LM which is why I no longer run LM on my machine. I even have my vram overclocked to 7500 MHz at all times. No mounting pressure mods done because my temps are already pretty darn good for me.

    I have a 125MHz GPU oc and 250 MHz oc on vram. I up to now did not experiment with gpu undervolting. My gpu max temp is 78C when playing Control for hours and fans on max. Before the mod gpu temp would go up to 85C.
    The plastic cover does not fit exactly, it gets tight but it's OK. And the good thing is it puts pressure on the additional heatpipe pushing it against the original ones. The additional heatpipe I used from another project and don't really remember where I bought it from has a height of 3 mm.

    I'm currently watching a TV Series show in one window, 8 tabs open(one playing youtube at 144p) and Alienware Command Centre open and my CPU 4.69 is 100 degrees at 40% usage? Stock with Thermal performance and High performance power ON

    Why am I hitting 100 degrees with no overclock or undervolting?

    I'm sitting it on a couple of place soft mats and note the feet are indenting the place mats...is this maybe restricting the inflow of air?

    Are you running on cooling pad?

    Edit: Cancel watching TV show(internet stream) and CPU temp drops by 40 degrees instantly????????????

    Did you try undervolting the CPU? Check back on the thread, there have been a few tutorials shared in response to your comments. Not sure it should hit 100c watching TV tbh.

    I'm concerned about doing anything when normal operation should not be pulling these figures?
    Only seems to do it with watching latest release TV show that is via internet saves????

    Witcher 3 no issues, youtube no issues

    I fixed that for you, bro.

    Word! Exactly the way I look at it now. "High performance" notebooks have never been a poorer value than they are today. They are far too compromised, run hot, throttle too much, have castrated firmware, inadequate power handling and the morons that build them are too obsessed with control; so, the use of quotes in the preceding sentence is appropriate. They are not high performance, they just suck a little less than the ordinary consumer filth. This is unfortunate. It did not used to be that way and it doesn't have to be that way today. But, it is what it is. As long as they are being manufactured by imbeciles, it's not going to improve. Don't flush your money down the toilet on a compromised gamer-boy piece of junk that costs $2000 or more. $1500~ (or less) is about the most any of these so-called "desktop replacements" are worth based on how screwed up they are.

    A super-expensive laptop with an unlocked desktop CPU that sells for as much as the Area 51M and Clevo DTRs should have a BIOS that functions flawlessly, with all of the same CPU and memory configuration options that you would find in the BIOS of a high-end desktop overclocking/enthusiast motherboard like a Z390 Pro Carbon, MEG Z390 Ace, Z390 Aorus Ultra, Z390 Dark, ROG Strix Z390-E, X299 Dark or ASUS Rampage. The fact that they rely on Micro$lop Store UWP trash apps, or other buggy forms of proprietary "control center" software for partial functionality is absolutely a joke. The clowns that build this broken crap just cannot be taken seriously. They don't know what they are doing, and they don't care as long as people keep buying their broken garbage.

    Perfect thanks, I'll look into finding some that are 2mm then, even if it helps by 5 degrees I'd be satisfied.

    Well put. These new trends with soldered components, non standart parts, thinner bezzels and subpar cooling make the whole point of "upgradable" laptops quite meek. Here's hoping that that'll change.

    Well, we have hope. More companies are using LGA 95W on High-End Laptops. Also, NVIDIA managed to create a whole new cooling system to Laptop, that allowed a Quadro RTX 6000 24GB 250W on this form factor. I think we will be able to use 3080 Ti, or Atleast full TDP 3080 in next gen.

    Finally Laptops are matching performance to Full Desktops.
