    Mine had IC Diamond on it and used to run cooler before I sent it in to MSI to replace the ram. I'll probably take it apart and repaste one day.

    That's a myth...no solid proof, only user provided information...some says yes the actual temps are always lower some says opposite and there is no accurate way to check but only relying on thermal sensors for the real time temps.....

    that day is very near, as weather is changing and with Kryo, I noticed rise in idle temps 3 to 4 degree in last couple of days, cold boot temps are still same so paste is still intact but idle temps are now around 40 where they were around 36....summer is upon us.....

    My Killer Wifi in AC (5 ghz) and also in N (2.4 ghz), next to the router, it still has 4 signal bars and not the all 5. I dont understand why? I've also installed manually last drivers for Killer wifi from Phoenix thread. Is there some tweak or setting to get the 5 bars? With 4 bars and in AC mode I can get an average of 30 mbytes per second of transfer rate, which is very good, but two or three times when I could get the 5 bars, I've got 50 mbytes per second in transfer rate!! My router is an ASUS RT-AC58U.

    Strangely, the Killer card has been completely flawless for me. Like, I haven't had a single hiccup or connection issue since I got the laptop.

    The one I had in my GT72 was a different story.

    @Phoenix bro whats your take on this? I am talking about games like battlefield. Laptop is constantly pushing more than 100-120fps. However having both CPU and GPU around 74-76 C looks like a concern.

    Overclocked? The CPU seems fine if playing a game such as Battlefield and clocked at 4.0GHz+ on all core... I get slightly below that when I'm playing a game while streaming and at 4.0GHz, but take away the streaming and all the background programs it'll go down a good notch.

    As for GPU, GPU Boost 3.0 will push the card till it hits high temps/power limits then clock back down. In the past GPU Boost it will hit its designed boost then go a little bit more from there but with 3.0 it seems to be the new "auto oc" built in feature that nVidia cooked up, so even if you're at stock clocks you'll probaly be seeing it hit 1700-1900MHz+on the core unless you specifically downclock it and such.

    For me personally 70s is fine 80s is getting there... as long as its not 90C then you're good since we're limited to laptop cooling.
