G75 Changed TIM + TPADS. With tests. (with pictures)

G75 Changed TIM + TPADS. With tests. (warning many pictures/well links since I dont want to resize them)

I decided to swap TIM + TPADS today just for the heck of it, did not feel my laptop was running too hot to start with, was a fun project to take it apart and put it back together, overall I do think I got some decent temp drops.

So I´ve swapped TIM + TPADS on the GPU and CPU, I used Gelid GC-Extreme as TIM, and some 0,5mm Tpads rated 14W/mK. In my pictures if there is no + infront of the blue numbers, it means temp has decreased. Room temp were 21C when doing all these tests.

I did test with default idle temp, idle temp with new TIM+TPADs, and idle temps with new TIM+TPAD+ No Backplate.

I then did Heaven 3.0 benchmarks to stress the GPU in a realistic way I did 3 consecutive runs for each(All set to high) Like befor i did tests with. Default, new TIM + TPAD, and new TIM + TPAD + No Backplate.

I then did prime95 for 2min (thats what it took to complete one task) with default, and with new TIM + no backplate.

And here is pictures of the teardown, and showing how I kept the screws arranged. Reason for keeping the screws like that, is that it just makes it a lot easier. And i like to make sure each screw gets back in the correct place it came from, even if the screws look alike.

The only void warranty sticker I found was on one screw for the CPU heatsink, so if others have this laptop and are afraid of warranty, don´t be, you can still change TIM on the GPU

(I´ve made this topic on the ROG forum too, just feel I have to say that incase anyone will say I ripped it from that forum)

Please use imgur or photobucket.
Drop box image macros are irritating and out of the way for most users.

hitting almost 80C max temps on your CPU default, new stuff only 45. nicely done/.

Seems like a nice improvement. Though I prefer the newer Alienware machines in looks, this is a surprising development as far as cooling goes. :3
