[Liquid Metal & Traditional Paste] - Clevo P775DM2/3(-G)/P75xDM2(-G) (Sager NP9152/NP9172)

Recommended Posts

Thermal Paste Complete: Mandatory. Not an Option. :)

* Don't mind the MX4 LOL that was just left over from something... How about that toothpaste that is rated at 401w/mk...which happens to be the thermal conductivity of copper.

 

Greetings,

 

I will be repasting the P775DM3 very soon and will be posting up the results w/ a lot of pictures for your entertainment. My liquid metal paste of choice will be Grizzly Conductonaut, however, I'll be experimenting with other pastes as well to satisfy any curiosity as to if one can get by with just traditional paste. (Highly doubtful, but I am curious about GC.)

 

Traditional paste wise, I have a feeling that GELid will hold up pretty well.

 

While I'm at it, I'll also be replacing the thermal pads. Depending on how warped the heat sink is, I have pressure paper handy to be able to test the contacts of the die and IHS against the Heat Sink. If needed, I have copper shims standing by of varies sizes from 0.1mm to 0.3mm+ ...

 

Below are the conductivity numbers for the top Liquid Metals and Traditional Paste:

(As we know the numbers don't mean everything, however, from all my tests done so far, Grizzly Conductonaut has always topped CLLU by an average of ~3C. Results may vary and it can be the case where it's the other way around. However, the thing here is that with these beasts, every drop in C's count. It could make all the difference.)

 

Liquid Metals:

Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut - 73 W/mk

Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra - 38.4 W/mk

Coollaboratory Liquid Pro - 32.6 W/mk

 

Traditional Paste:

Gelid GC Extreme: 8.5 W/mk

Grizzly Kyronaut: 12.5 W/mk

ICD: 4.5 W/mk

Project 775 Journal:
 

Straight out of the Box:

The temps when running OCCT on the CPU reached 99C on all four cores. Even on F1, the CPU temps all maxed out. Yikes right? As for the GPU, when running Unigine Heaven and Fire Strike the Temps were also in the high 80's and 90's. Repasting is a must IMO. 90C's is not okay and there's no justifying that. I know it's such a shame on Clevo's part for poor QC and lack of engineering (as demonstrated by the crap ADDA fans that are used), but it is what it is. If you want something to just work out of the box without any modding, then a DTR is not for you. Simple as that. Yes, it should work within normal operating temps right out of the box, of course, we would all agree. A DTR is for enthusiasts and those who have the willingness to get under the hood. Some of us thrive on this fact, while others don't, but at the same time this doesn't give Clevo an excuse to go cheap on us.

 

Project Delid + Liquid Metal Magic: (9/22/16)

The Repaste and Delid are now complete. I've been gathering temp data non stop, along with fine tuning the machine to find where it is the happiest. The temps have been amazing and I'll be posting up a full review shortly. - Stay tuned...

 

Fine Tuning: (9/25/16)

It's been a blast fine tuning the beast and I think I've got it to near optimal range. The CPU is a winner in the silicon lottery, thank goodness. I'm holding 4.6GHz @ -200mv Core / -200mv Cache and it's very stable with gaming, running benches, video encoding etc...As for the GPU, it's a working progress. After about 100+ runs...yes really :) of fine tuning and recording data on a spreadsheet, I think I've found the GPU's sweet spot. It's not a massive overclocker chip, but it's good enough to get a great boost out of it. Then again, my expectations are very high so anything sub par is not good enough. I'll be running more benches tonight and hopefully the tuning will pay off to take the #1 spot int he P775DM3 Class for Fire Strike, Unigine Heaven, Cinebench R15, Time Spy, wPrime (already recorded and sitting at #1 in this class) etc... I'll keep you all posted!

I haven't really focused too much on Cinebench, although I did run it a few times. But here's a run I just did now....Temps are great.

 

Liquid Metal is doing its job.

Awesome review. Did you put Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut on the GPU as well?

Guys,

 

After 2years and half,finally upgrade my stock termal paste with conductonaut, and got an average of 20ºC lower on both Cpu & Gpu (4790-non K and 980m). In games both CPU and Gpu hovering around 59ºC-63ºC. Really magic this stuff.

      Hi all,
       
      I'm debating whether or not to replace the thermal paste in my Lenovo y510p. I've started overclocking a bit, and I have an external fan, but I would like to not have to run the fan as fast because it is a little loud. I have been reading a bit about different thermal pastes, and I'm wondering if there is even a big difference between stock thermal paste, and something like the liquid metal from thermal grizzly. It sounds like it'd work better, but I don't want to fall for a good marketing scheme. If anyone has experience with this and has or hasn't seen big differences, your input would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      I was looking to open up my y50-70 and replace the thermal compound with liquid metal, but I can't find any information on the heat sink. I know you can't use LM on an aluminum heatsink, so how do I find this info? Didn't see it in the user manual- does anybody know if it is safe to use liquid metal on this heatsink?

      Hey guys,
       
      I have a MSI 16F4 with a 970m GTX and an i7 4800MQ. I get around 80C on my GPU and CPU if I play a game like Darksiders Warmastered, but 90C on my CPU if I play a CPU heavy game like Dota 2. 
       
      So I applied some thermal grizzly conductonaut liquid metal paste on my CPU and GPU about 2 months ago. After I applied it, I noticed that there weren't any changes in the termperature, so I applied a little more paste again and still noticed no changes. I decided to let it be and give it time to settle in. 2 months later, still the same.
       
      Well, last week I thought I'd have another look at it, so I opened it up and sure enough the paste was still liquid and not dried up. I added a tiny droplet more just in case, and yet again I see NO CHANGES in temperatures. I'm fairly sure the paste has been applied correctly, as I've had a look at how several other people have done it on youtube.
       
      Can someone help me with why my CPU is heating up so much? The vents are clean, my laptop is dustless. Sure, I turn up the turbo boost on the fan, but that's just so noisy.
