    Looks like it's beginning to come together! Should get even more impressive temps when the contact between the components gets better.

    Hey bro, yeah man I am glad I checked.

    I'm waiting on a few parts now.
    Smaller IHS
    New thermal paste
    Smaller GPU shim, 0.9.

    I'm thinking it might be pretty good once I bet proper alignment

    After I got my first Clevo, I had to get a dedicated room for all the extra parts, fans, shimms, tools and whatnot.

    Nice.

    However if there's a big rise in temps when all components are in use, it's more than just die contact.

    Connect the water backwards and compare the cpu/gpu temps to see the temp rise through the block (could also test with the thermal probe on the exit side). They may indicate you need more rad or more flow or both.

    Hey bro since this post I ran both again and it's the cpu die not sitting even see my screenshot peaked at 70 on processor at 4.5ghz with gpus running as well, I'm not doing any more testing until I get the new ihs and shims and paste

    Hey bro - still waiting on the stock height IHS to arrive, question .

    If i was to use LM as a bridge for the shims, will this decrease temps quite a bit vs Kryonaut - is the Mw rating a big thing when it comes to WC and the transfer of that heat?

    I don't want to risk the laptop for a mere 2-3 degree gain.

    I am just very cautious as it's obviously still a very expensive system.

    It won't be night and day difference between the two. And you wouldn't need much LM to have both shims stick, remember the surface tension of LM will pull them together, even with a tiny amount.

    Still waiting on this copper IHS to arrive guys, should be any day.
    Then i can finish the final testing and see if this is worth it.
