    I used to have this one as my on the go charger. You can find them easily on eBay.

    Machines dont usually survive for long if they keep over drawing enough to shut the brick off.

    It seems a psu problem, so a new one should resolve it? That's what I read in your previous comment.
    Hence my recommendation for a new charger.

    It's been some time since this post, but I snapped some pictures recently of the old contact pattern and my application method when I replaced my CPU thermal paste. Gaming doesn't stress my CPU out above 90C usually (averaging 80-87C), but I regularly hit 99C throttling temps during bioinformatics work. Over like a month, gaming will eventually hit high 90s too until I replace my thermal paste.

    Way too much paste there, try a line 1/3 the thickness.
     
    onick and adampk17 like this.

    Is there a downside to too much paste, aside from wasting money? I get fairly paranoid about potentially leaving spots uncovered.

    Way too much impacts contact.

    The only way I could really reduce the temps with my P650SG was to use liquid metal paste. This essentially gets you perfect contact with the heatsink. It's not a great solution IMO though because that stuff will slowly alloy with the unplated copper and of course a conductive liquid inside a PC is a risk in general.

    The real problem is the heatsink really is inadequate to maintain these CPUs at a high load, especially any software efficiently using SIMD on all cores. This is frequently a problem with notebook cooling these days. It's something else to research before buying.

    It does not alloy iirc, just makes it into the natural pores of the metal meaning thermal conductivity is not really changed.

    I had a LMed P650SG for 3 years and the temps were great the whole time. This was after running Prime95 Small FFTs (non-AVX) overnight:
