    Ran AIDA64 with the CPU and GPU going simultaneously, and the spread was 4-5 degrees. In just the CPU test, the difference was 1-3

    Run Aida64 as the guide and post your results with screenshoots. Run it with and without CPU and GPU going simultaneously.

    @iunlock i am new to this forum your contribution to this forum is amazing and helpful. I wish I could avail your service don’t have to go through the hassle which I am going through now. But it’s impossible as I live in Pakistan shipment, taxes charges would be this much I can buy a new laptop.

    I need your help please guide me.

    As i just bought alienware 15 r3 (7700hq with 1070 gtx).

    And its 1 and 3 core difference form 2,4 is more than 25 and these 2 cores continuously touch to 90+ after 2,3 mints even in ideal state and drop to 50 round about . When i do gaming it sometimes shutdown too so i stop playing and started to find guide how to fix this issue one important thing is to mention here there is no dell service center in our country i need to do fix this issue myself.


    It’s very hard here to get anything which u mentioned on your repaste guide from my country
    I read almost your every guide things i grabbed is
    I need to do repasting, repadding ,pch mod and tension the screw to reduce differential core issue.

    I can order all things (thermal grizzly conductonaut, 33+ tape etc) from aliexpress as other sites don't offer shipment to our country problem is i can get only get arctic pad.

    I tried to find pressure paper on aliexpress I am unable to find if u can give link where I can get that pressure paper that would be helpful too.

    Please can u mention what pad size should i be needed?

    Or should i follow your this guide line

    Greetings to all, I am new to this forum and although there are many pages, I have tried to read and get acquainted.
    i7 6820HK
    I have my ASUS ROG G752VS and I have problems the same problems with the speed of my CPU that is blocked at 800mhz, has a thermal choke at low temperatures and this generates low FPS.
    Reinstall windows 10 from scratch
    Update BIOS to V310
    Update video drivers and others
    Replace the fans
    Replace the thermal paste
    I have read other forums about it but I have not been able to find the solution.
    THROTTLESTOP: When you turn off BD PROCHOT the clocks go up to 3400mhz but the fps only go up to 30fps, the performance is still low and the game shows a bit more stable but it does not work as it should ... I change the voltages to -100mV but nothing of results
    MSI AFTERBURNER: I change cpu frequencies and I do voltage curves but it's not the solution either.
    I'm going to use liquid metal and try to see if it works.

    I HOPE YOU CAN HELP ME FIND A FINAL SOLUTION, I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE ARRIVED AT ANY CONCLUSION OR RESULT IN THIS FORUM.
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL.

    I would recommend against using the phrase "final solution" (especially in all caps) - people may get the wrong idea..
