    Airflow works over a bare die just fine.

    I don't see any ill effects yet at this temp. I just learn to ignore it for now since PCH can tolerate high temperatures.

    @Meaker@Sager Should we have access to voltage, fan speed, etc in afterburner? Everything but clock speeds is greyed out for me. I just did a Windows reinstall recently but don't recall if it was the same before, or if I have some sort of driver issue. The Clevo fan app controls the fan perfectly fine, so I dunno why Afterburner is having problems.

    That’s normal for mobile GPUs.

    Yes as it's the ECU on the laptop that controls these, not the gpu.

    FWIW on the 15" version PB51RF-G I squeezed two spare 1.5mm pads I had lying around between the PCH and the heatpipe above it after removing some of the black insulating sticker.

    With the pads against the heatpipe, my PCH idle temp is usually around 55°c, but when the GPU is under load, the temp can climb up to max around 85°c.

    It may not be possible on the 17" version though.

    You'll get heat transmission as above.

    Anyone have any throttlestop and afterburner settings they'd be able to share for their PB71?

    For TS I have -250mv to core and -135 cache. This runs pretty good for me, no BSOD. Only exception is Phantom Doctrine which frequently and randomly CTDs with these settings, so I also have a profile of -140mv to both, that the game runs fine with. I also have my Speed Shift setting enabled and set to 98, which seems to be a good balance between heat and performance.

    These are basically my two TS profiles;
    -140 Core
    -140 Cache
    Speed Shift at 98

    -250 Core
    -135 Cache
    Speed Shift 108

    The heat is basically the same between both undervolts, I mostly just swap between them to switch speed shifts if the CPU is running hot now.

    My afterburner settings are +165 core clock, and +350 memory. No crashes. Could start with these adjust higher/lower as your system needs.
