    Recently my P650HS-G has been firing up even on idle. Around 60-70 for CPU when idle, and about 90 and sometimes 95 when playing PUBG and War Thunder, both max graphics. Once I was playing War Thunder, my computer crashed, making buzzing sound, monitor glitching out, and I couldn't check the temperature, but I believe it was very hot, even on plastic outer surface on keyboard.

    I purchased from GenTechPC 1 year and 7 months ago, and added option to use Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra. Is it time for repaste? If so, should I switch out to MX-4? (I got 2 of the syringes)

    Well, any paste is better than an overheating CPU. :)

    True, but I would like to know if Liquid Ultra expires after 1.6 years

    I've heard of it either spilling out or reacting chemically and evaporating.

    Carefully ;) with alcohol and cotton buds or pads.

    Have you tried cleaning out the fan grills, could be the case of them getting blocked on the inside of the fan, not really noticeable unless you unscrew the fan from the heatsink. Compressed air should blast it out.

    my p670 was overheating and I had small carpet but not as bad as you on idle

    Good point, shine a light through and make sure it looks clear.

    I opened up the bottom and cleaned out the visible dust, not the internal fan. Thanks for letting me know.

    It could have fully sunk into the pores and become much less liquid to the eye. Sort of bonds with the metals after a while from my experience and then becomes much less paste. You just maybe need to add a tiniest drop. But if you repaste with something else, you have to completely clean it up, which might not be as easy as it seems.
