  1. Are the IC graphite thermal pads any good compared to Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut? On a thin gaming laptop? I have a Zeohyrus and my CPU cores get to 98° when gaming sometimes. I've never had it lag or have any performance drops whatsoever but I've replaced all the thermal pads with Thermal Grozzly Minus Pad 8 and the thermal paste with Thermal Gri,zly Kryonaut and let the computer sit overnight even though there was no set time needed just to be sure and it still runs fu***** HOT. When I play certain games for a long time, I wouldnt be able to use the WASD keys because of the heat on the keyboard. (I use a controller mostly). So I'm wondering if the IC graphite pad would help if I used that in place of Kryonaut. I would go liquid metal but not trying to risk it. Even linus' team ended up getting sh** everywhere by using the wrong tip during a video shoot. My plan is to use the IC graphite and replace the pads again oth fujipoly super extreme or whatever with 17 w/mK conductivity. Will this make any difference you think?
  2. Gotha thanks. Before I bought the laptop, it said I could upgrade the memory. It didn't say that one stick was soldered. I assumed upgradeable meant I could take out parts and replace them. But only 1 of the sticks were removable.
  3. Okay so I have a zephyrus laptop and I'm sort of confused. It has 16 gb of memory. The first 8 gbs is soldered to the board and I have 1 sodimm slot that came with a 8 gb stick installed. My question is how do they expect me to upgrade the memory and keep dual channel mode ? Wouldnt they have realized if I upgrade my memory to the next level up, I'll basically be slowing down my pc? Or is there something I don't know about soldered memory where I can upgrade my ram and keep it in dual channel? Or does asus not think that far ahead that maybe I'll eventually want more memory and I basically won't be able to upgrade because I'll be giving up dual channel, at which point it better for me to never upgrade it because it will be pointless to have more ram if it's not running in dual channel? Smh so disappointed with asus. What happened to them over the last few years. I was a huge dan and now the more I use this zephyrus, the more and more disappointed I am with them. What kind of pc manufacturer doesn't give me 1 stick soldered and 1 stick open to let me upgrade memory but at the cost of such an important feature such as dual channeling memory sticks. Why not just put me out of my misery and just solder both sticks!?!?!? This is fu***** bu**s***. Never again will I buy an ultra slim laptop. Especially an Anus RogPOS. (Yes, it's bef spelled correctly)
  4. After tweaking with this crap for hours, I finally figured out the issue. So the intel i7 7700HQ (Kaby Lake) processor is set to automatically over clock due to the shitty stock asus comman center app. Once I set my max processor to 99% in power settings and undervolting a little using Intel XTU, I'm getting 85°C average on all cores. I can run Doom Eternal on Ultra Nightmare at 120+ fps and maintain under 90°C. Turns out I probably never needed to even replace the thermal paste in the first place. Asus just has horrible software for controlling the cpu overclock. The only available options are "standard" and "extreme". There is no way to completely disable overclocking except by undervolting and setting processor max to 99%. Thanks to everyone who replied and I hope this helps the next person who has an issue with Asus Craptops!
  5. I'm pretty sure copper is fine with liquid metal. Its only aluminum that gets corroded
  6. But when I run Doom Eternal*** And I used Kryonaut for the CPU and GPU and thermal pads just for the GPU Ram chips.
  7. Okay so I replaced it all with .5 pads. Made sure it was all touching and it's all on point. But why I run Doom Eternal on top settings, my CPU still get super hot.... Core #0 hit 98° Core #1 hit 93° Core #2 hit 95° Core #3 hit 92° I made sure I applied the right thermal paste and cut the thermal pads to the correct sizes. Is there a reason this it's still running so hot? Specs are: Core i7 7700HQ NVIDIA GTX 1080 Max-Q Any reason this is happening? Maybe it's just the layout of the laptop is horrible. The cpu and gpu are right next to each other in the middle and so are the gpu chips. I'm really not sure why it runs so hot.
  8. Thanks for the quick reply. I had already order more Kryonaut and .5 mm % Thermal Grizzly Minus Pad 8 and it's about to be here today. I also did google what size pad I need and didnt find anything. If .05 doesnt fit, can I stack them on top of each other? I'm assuming not since air bubble will most likely get in there but just wondering so I dont have to re order them. And is thermal pads better than the putty stuff or do I need to get more thermal putty? Im mainly doing this cuz my cpu temps hit 95, max 98°C when I play doom eternal on the top settings. It doesnt lag at all but my laptop gets super hot after a while. I use XTU to undervolt and it still got to 95° on 2 of the 4 cores. And I assumed it would be a bad idea to use liquid metal on the gpu chips. Again thanks for the help!.
