    Remember I told you to unplug the battery before removing the GPU HS, that was the reason....even with Kryo if you remove CPU / GPU HS...the TIM on HS when break it's bond with die and you pull and slide the HS....same will happen....

    Yeah it's LM on the tape....no doubt...with this laptop, you cannot pull GPU / CPU HS straight up, you have to slide it so HS exhaust fins get out of their cabinets and gives you enough room to lift the HS straight up....but during the slide the TIM or LM spread outside the die....totally normal...happened to me multiple times....no matter how less amount of TIM you apply...this always happen....

    I pulled the battery as per your recommendation. Immediately saw why.

    The die is missing coverage on all corners, not just in one direction like you would expect if the only problem was the sliding HS. Plus liquid metal shouldn't be applied thick enough to pool like that regardless. I'm fairly certain that there is a relatively large gap between the HS and the die, which leads to a) application of far more than necessary and b) pooling of the LM due to surface tension after application. I also suspect that the heat sink wasn't primed with a coating of LM first, which can contribute to pooling due to insufficient adhesion to the copper.

    I cannot say anything why coverage on all corners are missing....may be applied it cross or pea method......:rolleyes:

    Personally I haven't tired LM yet but it's on top on my list...any day now.....

    also @Badhand386 can share his experience in brief how he applied LM so we can reach on a conclusion....

    I figured out the real reason why my idle clocks were all messed up too. If you enable DSR or gsync for windowed and full screen applications, it keeps your GPU clocks higher.

    no, the inbuilt screen that comes with the laptop. You will find the option within the advanced display settings in the resolution tab
