GPU temperature didn't drop after re-applying thermal paste

Hey!

I have changed the thermal paste of my laptop, the cpu temerature dropped from 70-80 to under 60 in gaming but the gpu is still 92-95. I used 99,9%  isopropyl alcohol to clean and Arctic MX-4.

What should I do?

dont bother yourself with this type of stuff

that 6% gpu at most gives you one or two more frames you wont notice it

if it was useful give it a like :) btw if your into linux pay a visit here  and i will be thankful if you send me an opinion here

Did you compare clock speeds before and after? It might clock slightly higher, but the temperature target is the same and since it is a laptop, will hit that temperature target.

Couple of C can make a huge difference, especially when it means hitting the threshold for throttling which naturally is a lot lower than the theoretical max safe temps. 

 

It can mean 25 fps with dips or 30 stable, *huge* difference. 

 

I can only assume you don't game on a laptop, or you just didn't figure this out yet.

Depends, tho using a laptop cooler with at least 4 fans is a must in my opinion, unless you have AC cranked up to absurdum, which works too, although runs the risk of condensation damage long term (theoretically) therfore a laptop cooling pad is preferable.

Totally agree, that's possible and would at least help to figure out what's going on, though as said above, gaming on a laptop without cooling pad will likely always run into temp issues...

Fudge, didn't think about doing that...

Now I think of it, did you try setting a temperature target in MSI afterburner for example? This will reduce clocks and fps though, but keep your system cooler.

I can't, the slider is locked, can't move it...
