I'm buying a Lenovo Y530

Hello, 

So... I'm buying a Lenovo y530 and after looking at some reviews, I saw people saying that the laptop tends to overheats a lot.

And I'm thinking about Repaste the GPU, CPU and possibly also undervolting it, is this a good idea?

My knowledge of tech is purely theoretical I've never taken apart a laptop or desktop, and while researching possible solutions I couldn't find a Repaste guide or full teardown of the y530, does anyone here own this laptop and/or has an idea of how to Repaste it?

Check first if they are soldered on, you may not even be able to repaste anything =/

 

You could undervolt it in the BIOS but you will lose some CPU speed if you're ok with that.

Why buy a laptop that overheats?  I mean, they all get hot but overheating is an actual negative impact thing.  

 

Buy a better laptop.

Huh? I didn't know that laptop heatsinks can be soldered on. interesting..

But, I found one person who Repaste their y530 on Lenovo forum, so I at least know that it's possible.

Pretty much anything in my budget will overheat some more than others, this and the nitro 5 were the only ones that I found decent.

Y530 has a good cooling solution. Only thing is the bad stock paste (I mean, really bad). Models with bad cooling will still have throttling (minor throttling also counts) after undervolt+repaste

 

I'll do a repaste soon in my Y530 so stay tuned

 

Even the CPU is soldered, you still can do repaste. Please know what you're saying before commenting
