    Hi everybody! i ve finally decided to share my finding on making the cooling better for the Clevo p775dm2/3 better while still keeping it simple and easy.

    a while ago i have made a post about p870dm/dm1 thermal pads layout that helps to make a better heatsink/die contact. but that was a bit complex task and does not always give the best results, especially when it comes to unified HS like p7xx does!

    recently i have found a much better, simple and effective way to do it, without even changing the thermal pads.

    so far this has been tested on all p7xx models and p870dm/dm2/dm3/km models except for the GRID sli heatsink(this need some more thoughts to be made)

    i attach the pictures, i am pretty sure it simple to understand what have been done, so i will not go into much details, but if you will have questions - feel free to ask!

    I get what's going on in post #1. You are using toothpick segments on the CPU spring arms and plastic coated paperclips under the GPU spring arms as a fulcrum to increase contact pressure. What a slick way to increase pressure on the CPU and GPU die. Great idea. Thanks for sharing it.

    I don't understand what I am looking at in the photograph in post #2. What are the three metal strips? What purpose are they serving and where do you get the materials for that? Also, why only on three sides instead of all four? Are they glued down, and do you have any insulation on the bottom of the metal strips to keep them from shorting on components underneath them?

    the picture did not fit in the first posts 5pic limitation, so i had to post it separately to show the TIM "footprint"

    Oh really? That must be only for the the GPUs install in the P7 machines. I have never seen those on a 1080 in a P8 machine.
