    Ran Heaven on extreme for an hour:
    30 minutes in it had topped out at 80c on a laptop cooler pad
    60 minutes it topped out at 84c with the cooler pad turned off for the last 30 minutes

    By the end of the test it was starting to get uncomfortably warm in this room, didn't want to throw off the test by opening the window though, so at least some of that heat drift up over the hour was increase in ambient.

    This was with fans on high, the 2 peace heatsink (properly lapped), the copper shim was lapped (really just a polish at from 1000 grit and up, it was quite good, the heatsink I had to take a few thou off, it was bad enough I could have started on a milling machine and saved myself 40 minutes and most of a sheet of 200grit), TG conductonaut used on both sides of the shim and the plastic bottom cut out over the fans and replaced with fan grills.

    It can actually be closer to 20% over in games.

    In terms of their "performance rating" perhaps but most popular titles I saw were in that 20% area.

    Hi, guys.

    Just signed up here and please need some help: I do have a second hand Clevo P15SM, seems like still a good machine to work with. And I´d like to confirm if I can upgrade my GTX770m to a GTX 1060m or a GTX 1070m. If yes, what do I need to change also (bios?, modded driver?, new PSU?). Thanks in advance and best regards from Brazil!

    If you don't already have one, I suggest you get at least a 180W PSU, there is also a compatible 200W PSU from mysn (schenker) in germany (they rebrand clevos) which might be better if you really want to go with the 1070.

    You will also need a Prema bios (maybe the V3 version).

    I'm not sure about the drivers but I think if you have the Prema V3 bios the untouched standard nVidia ones should work.

    Hope that helps ;)

    Get the MSI 1060N card from @woodzstack , he will also guide you though the entire thing and tell you what you need.
