There are two / three things you can do.

First is to change you thermal grease and replace it
with some liquid metal, BUT be carefull or better find
a dude / company that does this for a living It may give
you some degrees celsius, but since you live in the foregarden
of hell, the benefits of this could be too small.

The next thing you can do is manually set the minimum and maximum
processor load state in the windows power settings.


You gotta play a bit with the settings, but you do it right, i´m sure.
Try 75% (max. load) and see how it works.

If you have an i7, the CPU still will have enough juice to fully utilize the GPU,
it "may" also work with an i5.

Also, go to the NVidia control panel and set the GPU to adaptive, if it isnt already set.
You could also use VSync or any Framelimiter to readuce the load on GPU and CPU.

If the stuff above doesnt work, you gotta throttle it more. Go to Dragon Gaming Center
and set it from sport to comfort, the laptop will throttle automatically, but you MAY get
microstuttering if it throttles up and down all the time.

The next more radical method would be to let somebody mod your Bios and VBios
at the MSI Forums. The dude there charges a small fee for that.
This will allow you to set the multiplier, vcore, ram timings and all other stuff in the
normal bios like on a desktop machine. You will be able to find out if and how far
you can undervolt your device (exactly)! Also it will allow you to change the Voltage
of your GPU but beware, you will get BSODs until you found out the proper voltages.

This is all i know to prevent overheating on laptops, hope it helps a bit.

In schā'a llāh my friend!

Thanks I will give those a try, this is helpful information, I might need further research on some of the things but thank you for helping.

You´re welcome.

You may also try Intels XTU (Extreme Tuning Utility)
If your device is not locked, which should the case,
you can set the voltages abd multipliers directly in
windows. But BEWARE, you may get very fast
some BSODs if you set the Voltages/Offset too low!

This is the reason i am goin crazy atm. Im trying
to unlock my Bios, but it is a bit tricky.

I will share my knowledge here as soon as i found
out how to do it properly.

Simply blowing more air at the machine is not always going to help it. Any laptop will have a cooling design in place, a cooling pad is a factor that is not considered in the design of a heatsink simply because its not guaranteed that every user will have one.

If at all possible I would flip the fans on the cooling pad and center them to extract the hot air while allowing the fans to not have to fight air flow.

Also doing a tear down of the laptop to reapply the Thermal paste will be the single largest gain you will be able to get. If it bounced around too much during shipment to XYZ destination (be it your house or store front) then its possible for the heatsink to not be secure as well as the OEM applying too much thermal paste to begin with, which is a common practice sadly.

Other than that I would use the center grill as exhaust and leave the fans clear to pull in as the intake unobstructed.

From over at the notebookreview forums... Go with some CLU




Can't go wrong adding the #1 highest thermal transfer paste...

I decided to put Liquid Metal in the machine. Should be done in 1-2 weeks. I will post
my experience with it.

cheers guys!
