Liquid Metal Inspiron 15 7000 gaming 7567

Would it be worthwhile to liquid metal my laptop as I have overclocked GPU? And GPU before overclock got up to its 74C threshold and thermal throttles.

Sure. Just be very careful not to let the liquid metal seep out from under the heatpipes and make contact with other parts around the GPU. Put electrical tape all around the GPU die before applying the liquid metal.

New Build (The Compromise): CPU - i7 9700K @ 5.1Ghz Mobo - ASRock Z390 Taichi | RAM - 16GB G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 3200CL14 @ 3466 14-14-14-30 1T | GPU - ASUS Strix GTX 1080 TI | Cooler - Corsair h100i Pro | SSDs - 500 GB 960 EVO + 500 GB 850 EVO + 1TB MX300 | Case - Coolermaster H500 | PSUEVGA 850 P2 | Monitor - LG 32GK850G-B 144hz 1440p | OSWindows 10 Pro.

i agree with @Phentos you could get away with a better thermal paste like kryonaut from thermal grizlly and do a thorough cleaning.

Just use a high quality thermal paste, I did it on my XPS and dropped temps by 10c with some kryonaut.

 

Btw you haven't actually overclocked your GPU you just applied a core and memory frequency offset because they're quite conservative by default, the voltage and power draw is exactly the same, so there'll be no extra heat.

Well no... a higher clock speed means more clocks per second, aka more transistors firing per second, each firing of which creates more heat. So yeah even if it’s not overvolted it can still make more heat

My Build, v2.1 --- CPU: i7-8700K @ 5.2GHz/1.288v || MoBo: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E Gaming || RAM: 4x4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 2666 14-14-14-33 || Cooler: Custom Loop || GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Black, on water || PSU: EVGA G2 850W || Case: Corsair 450D || SSD: 850 Evo 250GB, Intel 660p 2TB || Storage: WD Blue 2TB || G502 & Glorious PCGR Fully Custom 80% Keyboard || MX34VQ, PG278Q, PB278Q

R.I.P. Asus X99-A motherboard, April 2016 - October 2018, may you rest in peace. 5820K, if I ever buy you a new board, it'll be a good one.

Proof? I'm pretty sure if I drop my CPU clocks in half and keep the voltages the same I will draw the same power and subsequently produce the same heat.

I’m the one that based my answer in fact so you’re the one that should be providing proof...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU_power_dissipation

 

TLDR for those who care voltage will move the heat much more than frequency but they both have an impact in general 

 

P = cFV^2

P = Power 
c = capacitance
F = Frequency
V = Voltage

Well the thing is is that it doesn't need cleaning. There is virtually no dust (except for on dust filters on bottom vents) I just need better heat dissipation.

Ok there was dust and the paste was just paste and not liquid metal. Improved thermals by a fair bit and the computer is overall cooler.

how did you find the dust?

Tore down the entire system down to its core components. Put it back together and it worked first try! :D First time thats happened with me and a laptop that happens to be worth more than an iphone XR. Now it takes at least twice as long to heat up to REALLY HOT temps.

Would be sick tho. Kinda like that $9k laptop that has an I9 cpu in it

true but at that point on its bigger than that predator laptop that looks like a drone strike mobile command centre.

Welllll..... You COULD jerry rig something up for water cooling but then it would just be a desktop at that point. lol

And laptops need everything to be connected for them to work for some dumb reason.

 

its a portable desktop.
