fricknbot Posted June 23, 2022 Share Posted June 23, 2022 So, after a whole year of waiting I was finally able to upgrade my P751tm-g from a GTX 1060 to an RTX 2070, oddly enough the thermals on the graphics card are fine, but my CPU temps seem to be quite high idle anywhere between 42-47c, Im not sure if my thermal paste application was abit too liberal or if the thermals paste is just bad (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B092C7NXCZ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share) this is the one I bought it says it has a high thermal conductivity 13.8 W/mK which is slightly higher than thermal grizzly it was quite thick to spread out with the spreader so I am unsure if I have done anything wrong as I made sure to apply an even layer on both CPU and GPU dies (CPU is not delided) are there any other things I can do to improve thermals, I already have my laptop on a cooling stand with 5 large fans so I'm unsure what else I can do. The CPU is overcooked to 4.8GHz although that's a single core bost it tends to sit around 4.3GHz it's also undervolted by -95mv. I'm also wondering whether my 220w power supply is enough and if I should sell it and buy a 330w power supply this would increase temps but more performance in theory if I could give both the CPU and GPU abit of a boost, if anyone has any tips on bettering my thermals and maybe undervolting my GPU as well it would be greatly appreciated!!!
