if the rest of the machine performs fine then reinstall minecraft.

Careful. Liquid metal will corrode aluminum, and FAST. I'm speaking from experience here. If your heatsinks are aluminum, which they might be, they will likely have corroded and lost contact.

Nothing terribly damaging, you just might need a new cooler.

If temperatures are good, then troubleshoot until you identify the actual problem. I doubt it is liquid metal unless the coolers are corroded.

i know that's besides the point but why would you risk your laptop to liquid metal when you have only a 1050 ti???

there is a reason that these modifications are usually done on huge power hungry laptops

liquid metal is expensive. Don't tell him to remove it unless it is 100% the problem.

Liquid metal has the potential to reduce temps by over 20 degrees celsius. Even if his parts aren't power hungry, I'm sure they get hot. Hot laptops are no fun.

the nitro 5 is good when it comes to the heat sinks they are solid copper and not copper coated  yes its a odd problem
