    Tutorials? You repaste it like every other notebook. Just remove screws from bottom cover, check for optional screws underneath the keyboard (there might be 2 screws which hold bottom cover to metal frame underneath the keyboard, but not all units will have those), remove all screws from heatsink (they are numbered so it is easy to follow, make sure to remove 4 numbered screws which hold fans in an addition to screws around GPU and CPU), disconnect fan connectors and lift up the heatsink unit. There are also some photos by @Ashlander posted in this thread but he didn't show the exact steps. He did show the screws which you need to unscrew underneath the keyboard:

    He means a real-time overlay over the gameplay like this.

    Max/min numbers can be misleading. So say a graph like xtu/msi afterburner do.

    Yes, there will be temperature spikes during certain part of benchmark or during the initial game loading which may not indicate the average temperatures so it may be helpful to monitor temperatures for some time. For example, with HWiNFO you can doubleclick on something like CPU or GPU temperature which would open a graph that shows temperatures over time. Something like what you can see on attached screenshot. Also, be aware that this model gets most of air from the bottom intakes so make sure to never place it on soft materials which would restrict airflow. Just keep it raised above the surface as high as you can (you can do this with passive laptop stand or just by buying a tall stick-on rubber feet in a hardware store or Amazon).

    Right, "like every other notebook", which would be easy if you have ever done one before. Not the case... :D

    Your indications seems good for getting to it, not sure about the steps for how to add the new paste (and remove the old?)

    Graphs are fine with enough detail :) per core temps, loading and clocks would be good if you are worried about the CPU.

    A combination of MSI Afterburner (most of the data) and HWInfo (Pl1 and PL2). A third program called Rivatuner actually displays the on-screen overlay, but that download is included with MSI Afterburner.

    You can find plenty of videos on YouTube how to repaste CPU and GPU on laptops, any of those will apply to this model since you're just removing old paste with acetone or alcohol and applying a new one. There is no specific video which shows how to do this for this specific model since nobody has bothered to make one.

    Also, if you're afraid to do this personally because you have never done this and don't want to risk breaking anything - you can just find a local PC repair shop or a friend who has done this and ask them do this for you.

    Does this chassis support Windows Hello with the camera?
