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.
Does anyone have experience with this? Some threads I've seen have done it on a 17 inch laptop, I was wondering if it was possible on the 15 inch version as well. What issues will I face? I read about having to have a custom BIOS and vBIOS..but also HDMI/audio issues. I guess I should also upgrade my CPU, which runs really hot (i7 4800MQ), but not sure another Haswell chip will run any cooler. I've used liquid metal and even that hasn't changed temperatures much, it still reaches 93C pretty easily.
Hi everyone, I was looking into overclocking my 4800MQ, so I installed XTU. I'm more or less a beginner at this, however I noticed when I try to benchmark my CPU, the ''current limit throttling'' is almost always occurring. I've tried increasing the processor current limit and undervolting as well but it has no effect. Also, the package TDP doesn't seem to go above 39-40W... Could anyone help me with this? Why is my CPU throttling without reaching its limit?
