Re-pasting y510p

Recommended Posts

For people that have experience in re-pasting CPU, GPU + ultrabay GPU in y510p to give some more info:

What paste have you used?

What are expected gains in re-pasting(temps)?

Is it hard to get to the CPU/GPU/ultrabay GPU?

Thank you!

P.S. I am planing to follow the instructions in:

I have non SLI version, so I don't know anything about ultrabay GPU, but repasting cpu and internal gpu was pretty easy, compared to my older asus g73sw. I used noctua NT-H1 and the cpu is now around 10-15 °C cooler under heavy load, it was reaching 100°C before and thermal throttling. GPU is also few degrees cooler, but it wasn't overheating before.

You can download y510p hardware maintenance manual from here http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_y410p_y510p_hmm.pdf where you have step-by-step disassembly guide

Also you will void your warranty, because there is a sticker on one screw under the keyboard

10-15 °C difference - that is great! I would be even happy with 5 °C difference. :smug:

Thanks for the link man.

I used GELID GC-Extreme and temps difference is 15 C degrees, and if undervolting, even 20 C degrees so it was worth it. To get to main gpu and cpu you have to dissasemble pretty much whole computer :D. Just follow the video you posted and you will be allright.

PS: It took a day or two for paste to get optimal effect but you can turn computer straight after repaste. So far I am happy with this thermal paste. Just dont miss out any cooling pads when you take off heatsinks.

I repasted the ultrabay with Arctic MX2 and did the "unshrouding" of the vents, as shown on this thread:

http://forum.techinferno.com/lenovo-ibm/7346-unofficial-y5-410p-cooling-thread-well-mx-4-notepal-x3-testing.html

I got zero results. GPU was still maxing at 97-98C. CPU and main GPU were always below 83C so I never touched these. I hear it's a bit more complicated to repaste because you have to disassemble all of it.

Repasting the ultrabay is super easy though.

Regarding the temperature of the ultrabay, I only managed to bring it down by flashing the unlocked VBIOS and undervolting it -112.5mV with nVidiaInspector. It now maxes at 82-83 without any significant performance impact.

Hi, do you have a y410p with sli? How do you get it working? I'll flash the unlocked VBios and undervolt the graphic card, because my laptop gets too hot too

I have the single-GPU Y410P, stock everything. So it's pretty close to the stock Y510P.

Disassembly and access is easy. I repasted the CPU and GPU.

I repasted with Arctic Silver MX-4. I saw no change in idle temps, and about 2C drop in CPU under load, but it still reaches the point of thermal throttle. The GPU dropped about 4C under load, but I have never used it at 100% anyways.

Overall, not a big difference. I'd look into other methods of cooling along with repasting.

Well 2°C here, 1°C there .... when we combine 10x methods maybe we will have some noticeable results :01:

Same here, stock everything... even the thermal paste. When i run Crysis 3 sometimes get thermal throttle... I want to undervolt but i'm not sure if i know how...

You need the modified bios which comes with the modified vbios for the onboard gpu and then you have to flash the vbios for the ultrabay gpu, if you have it. Then you have to get nvidia inspector and set your voltages. I use -112mv but i was able to get to -125mv stable which reduced my temps from throttle 97C stock voltage to 84C at -112mv. Using IdeaFan would probably reduce this by another 1 or 2C and the case mod would probably reduce it another 3-5C of so.

Edit: My ultrabay was the one that was maxing at 84C, my onboard would stick at about 82 or 83C

Deepcool Z5, generic thermal paste 5 degrees of celcius reduction. i'm thinking of arctic mx-2 or mx-4 for next repasting. well, opening your laptop voiding your warranty, do this if you sure enough. opening y510p quite different from another laptop, a bit confusing first time but i get used now. remove the screws from back cover and take it off, loose another screws behind. then take the keyboard off. flip your laptop and take off its inner back cover, you should see the heatsink behind it.

I recently repasted my y410p with Arctic Silver 5. You can get it from radioshack if there is still one around you for about $12 or go online and order it for about $9 and have to wait. I had 10 deg less for cpu and 5 for gpu. I did notice that there wasn't much in the way of how to lay the thermal compound on the mobile intel chips and just settled on a straight line down the middle from parallel to the longest sides. I also cringed when I saw videos of people smearing the paste around with a plastic bag or credit card. The best method is to let the heat sink spread it when you screw it down. That way there aren't any air bubbles that trap heat. And as I finish typing this I noticed that this is a post from a month ago so I guess its more for archival purposes.

I repasted CPU/GPU with noctuas NT-H1 and temps are down ~5-10 C

dissassembly was easy enough using a video I found on youtube:

hi guys! What cooler pad would be better to cool the y510p? Does notepal Coolermaster ErgoStand II or notepal Coolermaster X-3? , sorry for my bad English.

1. Paste - MX-4

2. - 5C.

3. It's not hard.

Bjulkes is right: "Ideafan is still the best option against overheating"

I got a drop of 10C with Arctic Silver, and almost ~15c on the GPU. My paste was quite dry and way overapplied when I opened it.

how this is working for you ?

how great is the difference in temperatures ?

Working fine, and better with cooling pad.

-10C for GPU if you raised laptop over the table. Without raising GPU warms slowly.

Guys, i've got the solution!!!

Thermal repasting or cooling pads do not help that much and aren't a acceptable solution. By undervolting your graphics card (which are factory overvolted or something) you will get lower temperatures without crashing and performance loss. Here the link: http://www.mediafire.com/download/mdlmr2zz9kbzzbv/<wbr>NvidiaInspectorForY510p.rar. just double click on the file for your card. Thanks to the creators of this files... it fixes the Lenovo y510p. :D

I finally got around to repasting my y410p (very similar on tear down) and got some great results. CPU is temps dropped nearly 10c and GPU was a few C lower. This allowed me to bump up my throttlestop multiplier to 32T with 4 cores running (modified in XTU) while gaming. I run -80mv undervolt on the CPU and it hovers around 85 C while playing witcher 3. Made a huge difference while gaming.

I used Gelid GC-Extreme and cleaned the old stuff off with articlean. Took about an hour to tear down and repaste, and the results were pretty much instant.

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?

      Hello, A couple of days ago I got a new GPU but when I installed it into my computer I was unable to use it but now I know why. When checking the device manger I went into the events tab of my GPU when I went to view all events, I noticed an error it said " event 411 kernel PnP " and It also said Problem Status: 0xC01E0438. I believe this is why my GPU hasn't been working on my PC. If you know how to fix this problem or have info on how to fix this problem that would be greatly appreciated. I'm also using a EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660.

      Hi
       
      Currently I am using Nvidia 376.44 version for SLI functionality. On trying to install any higher version , SLI wont function & only 1 card works.
       
      if anyone is using higher version Than the one mentioned above for SLI, please let me know
       
      Thank You

      hello everyone, I have a MSI GT683R with a dying (pretty much dead actually) GTX560M in it.
       
      I am looking to upgrade it to a new GPU, I have found a AMD Firepro M6100. (I first wanted to upgrade to a GTX970M, but that's too expensive for now... and corona is also making things difficult) I have already ordered a second heatsink to modify because I didn't want to modify the original heatsink it came with.
       
      But, my question is. Does it even work in this system? I have heard of people getting it to work in the barebone variant of this system. But I am not sure if it would work in the 'fully loaded' variant.
       
      Also, my games are mostly RAM/CPU dependent and I am looking for a little extra power in this system. I have found a I7-2860qm and I want to upgrade to 32GB of RAM, is it possible on this system? the sticker says 'max. 16GB of RAM' But I have feeling it says that due to the limitation of the cpu that's already on this system (I7-2630QM, 16GB RAM max.)
