Lenovo Y580 Disassembled + Repasting the GPU and the CPU

Recommended Posts

I opened my Y580 twice and also noticed broken screw slot on the bottom plastic bezel. I probably applied too much force on this screw the last time I was closing my laptop. My advice - do not apply too much pressure on the screws :) This is not a top quality plastic.

Thats right.

Not the best quality, but really durable if you're a little careful in using it

I bought thermal pads a few days ago and repasted my Y580 again.

I updated the first post with new pics and where i placed the pads

The temperatures are ~10°C lower now, thats amazing for my system with that overclock.

check it out

So happy now :)

Schranz, would you care to share where you purchased the pads and which ones you purchased? I'm getting up into the 80s and need to repaste/repad.

Thanks!

Yes of course :)

I bought ''Softtherm - 86/600 Kerafol 86/600 50 mm x 50 mm 6 W/mK'' with a thickness of 1 mm and 0,5 mm''

(you need 0,5 mm pads for the backplate of the 660m)

I bought them on conrad .de ... But there are better thermal pads out there on internet...

But this ones are working like a charm for me

Thanks alot. Is there any recommended thermal paste application method?

I didn't elapse the paste on the die's with a credit card, like some people do it...

It worked well for me to just apply a single little dot of thermal paste on gpu and cpu and let it spread by the pressure of the heatsinks

So you applied the pads on the backside of the motherboard right? The gpu and cpu cores have paste on them?

Mine did, and i didn't have pads so i just re greased with as5 worked ok, but my hdd is still getting scorched.

Yes, you should change all thermal pads, even the ones on the backside of the motherboard (backplate of the 660m). And yes, thermal paste on the core of the GPU and CPU

For me the HDD doesn't become that hot like before...

Thanks for the awesome write-up! It's distressing to see that amount of thermal paste, but unfortunately not abnormal, regardless of the manufacturer you're looking at (including Apple). One nice thing I see here is that it doesn't look like an awful process on the whole, aside from the number of screws on the bottom of the chassis...

You deserve a lot of credit for tearing down a pretty pricy laptop to do this type of work. As you note, it should go a long way toward extending the life of your equipment!

Shranz, did you only purchase one of each sheet? I can't remember how big of an area I will have to cover. Just want to make sure I get them all in one purchase. thanks!

I'm looking at these:

I just did a small mod to my Y580 two days ago.

post-10385-14494999605532_thumb.jpg

now GPU temperature maxes out at 69 °C (@ 1200 MHz core and 2800 MHz memory)

and CPU temperature maxes out at 75 °C (3,2 GHz with Throttlestop on all cores) :witless:

Perfect for gaming

nice! i was looking for that. after doing some cleaning, and changing the thermal paste, my maximum temps got lower

anyway, i still think 580's cooling scheme is pretty bad

i had to use an cooling pad otherwise all my games gets low fps

did you just attach heatsinks to the fan? any particular order, or....? how did you get them to stay? what were temps before you modded with the copper heatsinks? and does it push against anything once you reassemble? thanks in advance!

At first i used some Tesa tape to test where I can place the copper-heatsinks. As you can see on the picture, this are the parts where the heatsinks fit in the laptop without pushing against anything when reassembled.

I get them stay at its place with ''Arctic Silver Alumina Thermal Adhesive''... It worked great so far. I created this mod to use the laptop without the back cover and a cooling pad under it... Thats why the small holes in the plastic you can see on the second picture. (I used a small drill for that)

You can see my temps before that mod in my first post of this thread

My temperature-Information is always when running the Y580 at full load on GPU and CPU.

When i play less demanding games like League of Legends, the temparature of the GPU stays at 63°C and the CPU at 74°C maximum. I think that is a pretty good result, if you take a look at my overclock (and CPU clock, btw) :)

Thank You!

Yes i also think that the cooling scheme isnt good designed... Thats why I wanted to do this :) A third heatpipe would be still nice :D

Thanks for this threat!

I repasted my Y580 a while ago and the results are awesome. I didn't expect so much dust in my notebook, although i'm using the dust removing tool at regular intervals. The temperature dropped more than i expected and the perfomance is great too. I'm looking forward to overclock this baby. ;)

To all of you who suffer from overheating or performance drops:

Repaste it and get a USB cooling pad in case you're using it as a stationary PC (like i do, most of the time).

@schranzmaster: Can you tell what thickness are the thermal pads you used?

Btw: Does anyone have experience with this coollaboratory liquid metalpads, could these be used instead of thermal paste on cpu/gpu and instead of thermal pads?

I used 0,5 mm pads for the backplate of the GPU and for the other parts i used 1 mm.

Sorry, i never tried these metalpads

hi,

I'm about to change thermal paste and thermal pads in my Y580...My processor without overclocking throttle in games like Diablo 3 :) it reaches 100C and then it drops to 80C.

For now I restricted power to 85% and my temps are lower (~88C) but I need to change paste.

I've ordered Gelid EC Extreme 03.

But i'm not sure how many thermal pads I should order?

I saw You said that 1 set of 50x50x0,5mm and 50x50x1mm is enough ? So only 2 pads needed ? On Your pictures I can see much more pads used.

i want to buy these ones:

GELID GP-EXTREME TERMOPAD 12W/mK 1mm TP-GP010-A (5723533091) - Allegro.pl - Więcej niż aukcje. 80 x 40 x 1 mm

GELID GP-EXTREME TERMOPAD 12W/mK 0,5mm TP-GP005-A (5723533150) - Allegro.pl - Więcej niż aukcje. 80 x 40 x 0,5 mm

how many peaces of each should I get ?

btw. In throttlestop You overclock all of Your cores to 3,2 ?

This is amazing,

I did repasting and before my CPU was throttling at 100C very quickly (few minutes after intense gaming), my GPU was reaching 88C all stock clocks..

Directly after repasting within 1 hour of gaming my CPU reached 66C and GPU 77C.Now after all night of gaming my CPU sit at 62C and GPU at 71C. (stock clocks).

I used Gelid EC Extreme 03 and Gelid termopads (12W/mK) 1 packahe mentioed above was enough.

      Hi everyone, I'm looking for the modified bios Prema of the W3x0ET (GTX 660m + i7 3630m) for months, the performance of the notebook is excellent despite its age, but it has already reached its limit and I know that it can deliver even more if someone being able to help me will be very grateful.
      Thanks!

      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!

      Witam,
       
      właśnie pracuję nad tym aby ulepszyć chłodzenie GPU i CPU w swoim lapku.
      Plan jest prosty, zakupić heatpipe'y i radiatory w pełni miedziane odlewane i na razie plan przetestować złożenie takiego zestawu z pomocą kleju termo i drugi lutowany. Wszystko przystosować frezarką aby całość pasowała pod oryginał. będę próbował jeszcze dołożyć po jednym dodatkowym heatpipe do każdego układu. Generalnie laptop jest po wymianie pasty na standardową i temperatury wynoszą dla CPU 48 i dla GPU 44 stopnie C. Zaraz będę wymieniać pastę na miedzianą AG Thermal Grease. Potem pójdzie w ruch Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut i też podam wyniki i oczywiście po całej procedurze wymiany układu chłodzenia. Podam również wszystkie koszty i umieszczę zdjęcia z tworzenie i wymiany układu dla chętnych zwiększyć możliwości lapka.

      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!
