MSI GS65 8RE Liquid Metal Mod

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, so I'm planning to put liquid metal as my thermal paste in between my CPU / GPU and heatsink. I just want to know if anyone has already done this and can give me any suggestions. 

 

I know that it is dangerous (copper will be partly ruined from the gallium, short circuiting, etc.) but I'm willing to take that risk... for the temperature gains! (basically, don't tell me not to do it. unless there's a legit reason ty) :pp

 

If anyone has done it with any other laptops, I just want to know how y'all did it and what the results were. 

Also, please give me tips on how you guys did it because this is going to be my first time messing with liquid metal + opening up a laptop this complicated. 

 

 


"May your frame rates be high and your temperatures low"

I misread titles/posts way too often--correct me if I don't.

Spoiler

"High-End Gaming Rig"

CPU – i5-2400

RAM – 12GB DDR3 (1x4GB; 2x4GB Ballistic Sport)

GPU – GTX 750 (w/o Ti)

STORAGE – 1xWD 7200RPM 1xaddLink 120GB SSD

PSW, CASE, MOBO – Those are relevant?

it might be different on a laptop but for desk top gpus don't have a heat spreader so the heat sink attach to the cip. were as a cpu has a heat spreader and in between the chip and the heat spreader they some times cheap put on thermal past so replacing that helps alot.
