So I redid my pads and repasted, it did look like the contact after my last re-paste wasn't good, I also took the time to pull it out and without any pads or thermal past screw the heatsink to the GPU and see if there were any gaps, it seems that the heatsink contact to the GPU die is good. I have Thermal Grizzly Minus Pad 8 1mm ones that I was using but also noticed the VRAM chips don't get full contact with the 1mm pads, they need to be thicker. After that I ran Cyberpunk 2077 @ ~1800Mhz again and it took longer than before to warm up, but with autofans still hit 87C after roughly 7min. CPU @ 4.3Ghz wasn't an issue, but when it is at 4.6Ghz all core with the undervolt it will hit low 80s. I also noticed that if I did frame cap at 60 the game wasn't as smooth as if I just put the frame cap at 80 or so - and the panel is only 60hz. I'm going to have to try the combination of K5 Pro & 17 fin fans - no LM for the GPU for me as I move the laptop around too much, for the delided CPU it is under the IHS so that is fine. But swapping out for one of those copper IHS I see might be worth a try? My fans don't have the the annoying high pitch you mentioned previously, but I am definitely looking for the performance. I can't believe you can manage 78C with 190W ~ 1950Mhz to 2000Mhz for the 20min Time Spy stress test, with the RTX heatsink, that is super impressive! Especially considering with my larger heatsink I can only manage around ~130W @ ~1800Mhz for 7min on auto before it hits 87! It would be nice to be able to run 190W with full fans and keep it under 80C - that would be a real achievement! BTW I totally forgot that Afterburner can pull the Watt also . . . but I was just playing with it and can only find CPU Power - for Watt, not the GPU, what option did you use to get that? My GPU also currently can't handle a +170 core offset, I have been playing with the curve itself.
