    Ok stop running it.
    Enjoy your laptop for a week
    test temps in same ambient 1 week later.
    I'm very impressed with those temps without LM.

    Very nice. When did you repaste? Is that paste LM or no?

    Today and posted the result right after....first cinebench result was little better temp wise 69/69/66/68 and 2nd run gave above result 72/72/69/70. Fan on Auto.

    I was following your and @Falkentyne conversation and thought to change the 1.0mm pad to 0.5mm pad and lap the HS a bit where core 2 and 3 has better contact (note I lapped the HS many times in past, have my own reasons so do not do it unless you know how to do it right) and end up with above result. may be will give another lap to close the gap

    btw I use 3M thermal pad, I like it more over Arctic Pads, it has one end sticky so very easy to use but Arctic has better thermal w/mk, will be ordering Minus 8 Pads

    Thermal Kryo is non conductive paste (not LM), 100% safe to use.

    Congratulations on the excellent results :)

    Saving us the time looking up your previous posts, what were your original out of the box results doing the same tests? Or if you were testing using different method, please post those out of the box results along with a run now with the re-paste. Thank you!

    What is the reason you avoid undervolting / tuning for correct voltage?

    I also repasted yesterday and had 4 c difference but today is almost 10 C :( I hope is going to stay there. With lap HS you mean sand? I think that ia only solution how @Falkentyne said.

    I cannot recall out of the box result, using the laptop since Sep 2016 but I remember I was happy out of the box result, not any major difference in core temp, though there was difference.

    Didn't take the before snap shots but temp was above 82 with 6 to 8 degree difference between cores while running cinebench test. possible reason I did re-paste 3 to 4 months ago the paste dry out, also I change the thermal pads to Minus 8 (1.0mm) which may be causing the poor contact between CPU and HS causing higher core temp difference and paste dry out quickly.

    I'm bit lazy, I did under volt but lost settings multiple times when ever I have to hard reset the BIOS for any reason so I stopped...now only using DGC @4.1 and temps mostly stay under 60 with full work load and while gaming temp stays between 65 to 70 (not doing much gaming these days)
