    Could somebody tell me the difference between the P650SE and the P650SE-A? I know the second one has a Broadwell CPU instead of a Haswell but is one considered an update to another? Also would the P650SE-A still be a Sager NP8651 or not? Thanks

    No, Sager did not release the broadwell models so there is no equivalent sager model. The only difference is the different CPU soldered on but that has implications on the BIOS for instance.

    Oh because I have a P650SE-A Sager laptop. The CPU frequently hits 90 degrees celsius with no dust and Arctic MX-4. I heard that most heat issues are caused by warped heatsinks. Is there anyway to fix that?

    I would try a fresh coat of IC diamond too :)

    You can check the contact pattern and see how good it is too, if you are not sure post a photo here when you remove the heatsink what the spread looks like.

    I thought TG Kryonaut was the best non-liquid metal paste?

    ICD is less likely to wear out quickly compared to Kryonaut... I personally have tried Gelid GC Extreme, ICD, MX-4 and won't use anything other than ICD!
