    Repasting with MX-4 dropped temps by only 2-3C, testing with AIDA64 stress test for 30 minutes before and after. The heatsink assembly screws were really tight from the factory though. I stripped one and might have slightly bent the pipes in the process of getting it out. I went ahead and ordered some Conductonaut. Hopefully, liquid metal will drop the temps even more.

    Could people share what is the hwinfo64 sensors PL1 and PL2 values?

    I have two 15+, both Oct build date, same bios/EC/GC but one is 45/56 watts and another is 55/65, and of course the one with pl1/pl2 55/65 out performs the other one

    Any input or thoughts?

    Just install Mojave 10.14.2, put the EFI in, and you are done.

    I wouldn’t use it for travel though, the battery is too limited.

    I found the culprit behind the down-clocking to 798 MHz while on low battery! It was MSI afterburner all along! Disabling it removes most of CPU throttling on battery and the laptop becomes usable once again, no stutters and even 1080p YouTube works fine!

    Edit : This is until battery saving mode kicks in at < 20%, where it goes back to 798 MHz, however, this much more tolerable.

    Edit #2: This gets weirder and weirder... at 15% the throttling is suddenly gone once again. I'm not even going to try to understand this any further.
