    Hey thanks, I seemed to have been a little stupid here, I reverted back to an older version of the EC which has seemed to solve my orange light, and I also found out my fans were on 50% on the lowest setting, which I guess is default, and makes it so even if the CPU/GPU are in the 30-40 range for temp. the fans are always running.

    What should by my fan curve be for regular use? Like for me right now its, 0%, 50, 60, 70, 90. is that fine or is the gap between the first and second too large?

    The 115w 2070 super Max-p should be within 5% of 80w 2080 super Max-q performance. The 90w 2080 super Max-q will be faster than the 2070 super Max-p.

    So I’m out of ideas, for the life of me when I roasts I have cores 2,4,6 running super hot on my GS65 9SE with the 9th gen CPU.

    does anyone know what could cause the contact of the heat sink to be insufficient? This is using kryonaut paste.

    If its brand new you can RMA it, but you'd probably have to send your laptop away for a few weeks.

    I have heard of people sanding down their heatsinks to flatten them out so they contact better but its risky, liquid metal is also risky because i believe it voids your warranty.

    It’s not brand new unfortunately. Maybe I get get some LM to use to try and cure the issue.

    Lapping the heatsink helps or using really thick paste in my case ICD did the best job

    Mines not brand new either. Got it used. Might do LM before going ICD. Right now I only have MX4 due to my A51m as my main machine and the GS65 as my work, school, etc.

    Does the thermal paste on the VRMs work better than thermal pads?
