    Well I watch a Pbhenry3 video where he mentioned having some VRM failures where it seems like the VRM heated up quite badly and the pads melted down, I don't trust razer's OG pads.

    Here is the Video:

    Arctic thermal pads will work fine, but I don't remember the thickness needed. 1mm for sure, but not sure if 1.5mm or 0.5mm is needed as well. Some places Razer just used thermal paste, so perhaps some k5 pro as well would help.

    Hey guys, I got another question.

    I was thinking about flashing the 2017 vBIOS on my 2016 blade using nvflash as proposed by sproyd
    I downloaded nvflash 5.287 but if I type nvflash --list on an administrator command prompt, I get a "No NVIDIA display adapters found." error message.

    Anybody has any idea on what I am doing wrong?

    EDIT: Well I solved the issues by using the latest version of nvflash on techpowerup (https://www.techpowerup.com/download/nvidia-nvflash-with-board-id-mismatch-disabled/)
