    Camt go below 26 on the 9th gens believe me a tried...also i had to repaste like 7 times, this meant board out 7 times at least..stress test and go back,clean and do it all over......on both gpu +cpu so trust when i say take ur time....also i ended up using ICD when my first few tried were with CM Maker Nano.......in the end with me getting the hang of repasting and ICD under combined stress test 45w+80w at 3.6-3.7ghz mine settle 88-90 on 3 cores adn5 degrees difference with the other 3..something i tried to correct with every repaste but i believe this is a problem with my heatsink at this point and the ony solution would be to lap it and didnt want to void the warranty on it.....i ordered an extre heatsink and might mess a bit with that one later on and see what i can find out......also just use the TPL in TS set ur turbo limit to 20-22 when ur going to gem just set it to 42 i found speedshift setting helps alot alos C-state when it cme to battery and thermals i have 4 settings on mine 1.bench/stress testing 2. Gaming
    3.internet and regular use 4.battery..fan curve is set to max 110 on cpu and 100 on gpu

    Hi,
    just repaste and change thermal pads on my laptop, very good news ! it took me 3h because i took the time to get every little parts of thermal pads well positioned and in contact with the HT.
    Results are excellents ! On full load now I reach my goal of having it steady 3.7GHz, the temperature are 87°c Max. I can probably reach 4GHz steady but I might have to look at my fan profile and change the undervolt. The good things is that I am not reaching any limitations now keeping my turbo ratio at 37 on all cores.
    For the test on battery, I don't see a big difference with the one before repaste. It seems that the NH2 thermal paste is good on high load. My idle temperature are probably a little lower now because even by writing this comment on battery with 2 additional screens plugged, fan are still off ! (very good)
    Before repasting, I tried really hard to get the heatsink perfectly fitted on the CPU and GPU, I did some print of the contact surfaces by putting very thin tape on the Heatsink surface, add some highlighter on it (the tape), put a thin peace of paper on the CPU and GPU. Assemble both part to get the print. I bent the heatsink depending on the results. This time, I applied the thermal paste in thin layer instead of the drop as usual on the CPU.
    Even with that method, I still have 7°c discrepancy between cores, when on heavy load. I believe this heatsink is not that good.
    I also add the thermal pad with the copper on my main ssd, I don't see big difference.

    If someone can explain me how to load the pictures on this forum, I will post screenshots and picture of the method to do the print.
    Thank you guys

    Well the GS66 is out and seems like a marginal improvement in build quality, i do like the flat black look...definitely conforms more to the stealth name.....one thing to look out for will be if later in the future we would be able to use these newer fans on our gs65 that's something imma look into further down the line as from the pics i could see in the presentation seems like the same heatsink design and would make sense as they improved material thickness but most probably kept the same molds...

    On another note..My CPU temps....though 6-7 degrees lower than stock per core on average and 200-300,Mhz more after repaste and repad and UV with TS (22 minute run of combined aida+unigen) is still crazy uneven say 5 degrees per core, ive repasted like 7 times trying to figure this out tried that 0.5mm pad instead of 1.0mm on the chips above the cpu , but found that they made ver lil contact to heatsink like that and didnt really improve anything...anyone here try bending that little arm where the lone screw on the heatsink cpu part goes to try and get it to apply more pressure? i bought a new heatsink/fan assembly so i can have a stock one on hand as i will at some point try to lap the heatsink and maybe try bending that little arm a bit to see if i can get it to apply more pressure...if i can get that to work and have the hotter 3 cores within 2-3 degress of the rest that'll mean a 10 degree drop and most probably no thermal throttling..also GPU never goes past 75...duvk we have to go to these extremes to fix what MSI could've done on their own (also i did do all the bios tweaks) need to do the intelgpu one to remove edp other limit

    I bent one of the arms, it's only a temporary fix.

    After about 2 weeks temperatures start climbing again, and 2 months it will return to "stock".

    Feeling like an idiot. I have the rtx2060 model, and just added a second SSD. After putting everything back together, I now get no response at all from the display. No flicker, no post. Nada. I can connect an external monitor via HDMI, and that works fine. I assume I accidentally pulled a connection on the MB or similar. I've disassembled and reassembled the thing multiple times and haven't seen any bad connections. Same result each time. Dead attached display.

    Does anyone have a schematic of MB and/or display connections? Msi support gave me a an illustrated step by step teardown guide for an earlier model, and again I can't see any missing connections.

    Otherwise I'm stumped. Open to any other ideas.

    Thanks for the response. Yeah, that's the main one I keep trying to reseat to see if it was off slightly.

    I'm going to do another tear down and take some pictures.

    hi,

    is there any way software wise, to limit the Battery Charge to 80% while plugged in?
    I had this option in my former Lenovo, and I would like to set it here also, because I use the thing usually plugged, and I don't want to stress the battery at 100% all the time.

    best regards,
    Alin

    I believe you can use Dragon Center and have it charge under 70% to 80 or 50% to 60.

    Then I think you disable the program if you don't want to use it and still have the calibrations.
