I'm using the laptop to post this. It's been on for the past 15 minutes with an external laptop cooler.
Both Speedfan and HWMonitor report temps as such:
Core: 49-56 (it jumps between the 2)
TZS0: 50 44 65
TZS1: 50 47 68
AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile TL-62
Core 0: 53 50 68
Core 1: 47 39 62
Airflow: 43 39 43
It would seem that new TIM and some modding will help this thing greatly. Also, the sound doesn't work. Doesn't detect the chip at all.
EDIT: I think I fixed it. Sound, too. I took apart the laptop. The engineers probably thought that they would have a good laugh.
Got to the heatsink. Problem was apparent from the second I saw it. In between the heatsink dip and the GPU was, I kid you not, a solid 3mm of open space. What made contact? A thermal pad that I mistook as cotton.
I replaced the 16 ml of TIM placed with a healthy amount of AS5, and placed a penny to close the gap for the GPU. Changed the power settings to ACTIVE COOLING as opposed to passive, and changed max CPU to 80%.
That alone dropped temps to 35-40. I'm gonna be throwing a bunch of tests at it. See how much it can handle at this point.
