    with that temp and voltage you can prob aim higher, especially fan not on max. try to see if u can get a stable 4.4 or 4.5 with just under 1.25v

    1) Set Dragon Center to 42X on all multipliers
    2) Open Intel XTU
    3) Set core / cache voltage offset to -0.1V (-100mV)
    4) Processor Core ICC Max = 100A
    5) Turbo Short Power Max =/ Turbo Boost Power Max = 200W

    After you save, if it prompts you to reboot, some settings won't stick so you have to reset them again, then they would stick

    no way, on a stress test, temps reach 89C. not running any higher and risking anything. I'm happy with these clocks.

    Last time I tried 4.4 GHz it corrupted my entire RAID 0 Array, never trying anything above 4.2 GHz on this CPU

    Thanks mate.
    I noticed that your battery wear level is 0.5% which is very good. I checked and mine is 2.4%. I've been using it for just a week now, so that's not good. How long have you had your laptop and how do you maintain your battery so well?

    There is a calibration tool in DGC, I ran mine although it took some time.

    Cool Laboratory Liquid Ultra is LM and only for pros and enthusiast...ICD only make difference of 1 to 2 degree if applied properly....you can find my posts between 150 to 250 pages...real test results with snapshots comparison of MX-4 VS ICD vs Thermal Kryo VS Stock TIM.... also comparison with other users who have tried ICD...Thermal Kryo beat ICD and stock paste performance is almost equal to ICD and ICD may and will dried out....in my case it dried out and another user also reported it dried out after 3 to 4 weeks......I don't believe what re-sellers says...they don't do re-paste for free and they will never say that stock paste is better otherwise how they can sell the re-paste feature....:)

    oh did I forget to mention...ICD does scratch die....;)

    I've had it for like a month

    the reason it's still like this although I've used my laptop on battery like 3 times is because MSI BIOS doesn't allow the battery to overcharge, once it reaches 96% it says plugged in (not charging in the taskbar power icon)

    He probably wanted to make me pay some extra money. Hopefully, it doesn't dry out. Repasting is gonna be a pain in the ass.
    I know ICD scratches the die

    nothing as painful as repasting LCU. IC Diamond is super easy to get off and reapply.

    Use this.....

    The X Cross method is the best in my experience as once the heatsink is fitted, it provides the maximum coverage with the least air bubbles

    Applying the paste is alright. But removing the heatsink and screwing it back is what I'm nervous about.
