36 degrees drop with liquid metal Alienware

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so about a month ago i used liquid metal to cool cpu which was always at 99 degrees and was hoping for like a 15 degrees drop but turns out it dropped temps by about 36, the temps are still the same since i did that. all though this thread might be useless im just pointing out how well liquid metal does for a cpu. for some reason it doesnt go to 3.7ghz but at 3.5ghz instead and cinebench scores still arent the best but im able to keep this alienware cool as can be :)

I think you have to take into account that the 99c temp meant something was wrong.

 

You didn't improve temps as much as you fixed a problem.

Dell also just a completely abysmal job at thermal paste application, even on their highest end laptops

 

That is quite significant though

my cpu is a i7 4710hq which only has a 200mhz overclock with a graphics amplifier, but under full loads it rather stays at 3.5ghz instead. bios up to date and the only overclocking i could find on this cpu was someone getting it to 4.7ghz, i'll search up BLCK

Very likely to have been bad paste or a bad application... Or not mounted securely enough... So yeah, I don't think the liquid metal is the primary factor for getting temps that are this much better.

i've had an asus laptop where the orange insulation thing for bare die CPU was overlapping on my CPU die, causing my cpu to idle at 70c and pin at 99c while browsing the web

 

cpu didnt die, even after 7 years of 99c 24/7 pretty much (i never shut down)


Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I quoted @Moonzy. I had that exact 70c at idle and almost maxing out on simple tasks.
