    I was thinking of trying your idea of using the bulk white thermal paste. Any ideas what brand and where I would find this? I found too many different types to know which was the one you were suggesting

    I used gelid solutions extreme performance GC-3 without any issues. Oh boy is my laptop chilling 32-35 degrees doing everyday surfing and normal non gaming stuff.

    Hey mate, congrats. What happened with games? Did you overclock? I have still little problems with gta V. Fps drops while driving. Did you try with Gta V?

    Right I had to reinstall everything but just got gta v installed without the overclock on my 7670 I'm getting min of like 22 odd times in the really built up area's I drop down to 16 for a split second but most of the time up at 30 but I'll post back more when I've got the gpu over clocked. I think its really just a driver issue though or game issue as the cpu is more than powerful enough and so is the the gpu tbh. I'm also going to test other games to see the improvement as I'm convinced it's just gta v that's being a donky for amd users

    I am getting same fps too with gta V. I agree with you. It looks like game isssue. Because cpu or gpu usage isn't %100. I thought maybe if you overclocked 3 or more ghz and you don't have this problem. Maybe this is ram or hdd problem, i don't know. While driving, ram or hdd can't read so fast maybe.

    What driver do you use? I installed 15.5, a little bit better now. Maybe with some old drivers or settings, we can get over this problem. I will try with other dx versions. But i don't have much hope :D

    Well I can rule out the hdd question as I'm running a Intel ssd. My cpu is hitting 100% but its running at 2.4ghz gpu is only hitting 80% tops which is odd but can't tell where it's pulling the figures for the gpu in game from as I've got a 2gb 7670 not a 1gb so that's quite a concern that even in duel graphics it's only showing as 1.5gb vram. Not got round to overclocking yet but if it's not using the vram as it's ment to then that's going to be limiting the frames. Someone tell me if I'm wrong but turning off duel graphics means it's using the 7670 not the apu right? That's the way it always appeared to me anyways when running other games and benchmarks.
