    since owning my (SAGER NP8658) clevo p650rs-g i7-6820hk (per-ordered for the release of gtx1070), i haven't re-pasted it lel.
    was so caked on, was like a biscuit. i read a lot of posts about bricked laptops and desktops, but just do your research. I also replaced all my thermal pads (last pic, which isn't mine gives an idea of sizes). some of the measurements are wrong so just measure yourself the mm.
    overall idling and gaming i am down approx 20°C.

    here are the steps i did:
    1) unscrew heat sink in reverse order, remove caked up thermal paste with 99% isopropyl (wax paper, q-tips, paper towels)
    2) apply 3 coats of clear coat top nail polish (20min dry between coats)
    3) kapton tape the all areas in case of spillage
    4) apply thermal grizzly (test on aluminum foil to see how it comes out), swap it around with the q-tip it comes with to make it a shiny, sheet, liquidy film.
    5) put a but on the copper heat sink also
    6) put screws back on in proper order

    And how good you are at applying LM too, remember it needs a tiny amount. There is a bit too much in those screenshots I think.

    thx m8!
    i looked into those alread. laptop stays at home, moves around in the house only and will make sure to keep it FLAT
    .

    the "light" + angle in pic make it shine moar. if anything i under put compared to all the youtube vids i watched/threads i read. it's an extremly thin sheet like foil, with no bubbling.
    thx for advice.

    Just to clarify, for step 4, you used Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut, correct? Pictures and steps indicate this was the case, but just wanted to point that out to other readers.

    Also, curious if you kept the foil around from the test. Did it disintegrate?

    i totally understand, and read followup threads days later of bricked cpu's or gpu's.
    i made sure to research intensively, last thing i'd want is a bricked gamin laptop lel
    always owned (sager/clevo) never had a problem.

    It does run so easily when it gets out, not everyone is as diligent as you have been.

    A little upd8, played around a bit with oc, got it to stable 4.00 and overclocked gpu. max temps in intense gaming situations like high 80's.
    here is some fun benchmarks. for 2+year old laptop pretty impressed. still able to play every game maxed out.
