    So I replaced the stock thermal paste on my Acer Predator with Grizzly Conductonaut. Stuff works great and now in games my CPU usually runs at 67c and never goes above 70c.

    Since my CPU temps are so low I have been messing around with ThrottleStop trying to see if there is a way to get better performance. I know the 6700hq series doesn't support normal overclocking but is there a way to get it to hit 3.5 ghz more reliably or anything?

    ThrottleStop is very complicated and there is a ton of contradictory information out there.

    No there isn't. 3.1 ghz on all 4 cores MAXIMUM. There is no EC or Bios hack that can bypass this. It's a hard limit in the CPU.

    No the CPU is locked, there is no way of OCing it. Why would you need the extra performance tho?
