im so tempted to try n repaste mine with Honey which is already waiting for me in the cupboard lol but then I have this laptop for two months and kinda worried that if i reapply and something messes up MSI Poland won't accept the warranty

Ok i was asking because i ordered the same thermal pads and im curious to know your temps. At moment i repasted with thermalright tfx and i have good improvement compared to stock paste. But i read in many post that ptm7590 pads are better than thermal paste.
PTM it doesn't have to better temperature than tfx, but this is for lon life thermal solution.

I repasted my raider with i7 now. Best decicion ever. temp spikes are much less and fans stay quiet durin desktop work. See pictures for pre and post re-pasting. Did the time spy benchmark and also a view other games tested. Thermal throttling almost not happening compared to before. I used thermalright tfx for cpu and gpu and k5 pro for all others.

That’s the best results i think, thermalright is the right paste for this laptop this is sure now. How did u apply spread method or what? Ths

The K5 Pro i spread all over the VRMs etc to fully cover them. For GPU and CPU i used spread method with a small pea in the middle and before applying the heatsink back I heated up the spreaded paste with an hairdryer for potental better spreading while pressing the heatsink.

Nice, though i think some body said to not do vrams for some reason, cant remember why.
BTW do you have any photos of how the original paste looked like before cleaning?

Does anybody has experience what happens with K5 Pro in case of again re-pasting only the cpu/gpu? Do I have to clear and replace the K5 pro as well or will it stay mostly in it's shape when removing the heatpipe again?

Hi, I would like to reduce the temps while gaming.

I have read all this post and I would like to try this undervolt configuration:

Where can i found a tutorial to do the undervolt?.

My laptop: MSI GE76 Raider i7 12700H, RTX3080Ti 16GB.

Thanks in advance!
The i7 can't be undervolted. Only way to reduce temps is limiting the CPU in Power (PL1/PL2), Frequency (FIVR Multiplier) and TCC. Once diasbled to CPU CFG lock in Advanced BIOS you are able to use Throttlestop for settings PL1/2 Watts and FIVR multiplier in different profiles depending on you needs. for office work i have an profile with turbo completely off which keeps the CPU <60 all the time. for gaming i have PL1/2 at 50w and CPU speed at 3.5 - 3.8 GHz at all cores which is not affecting FPS in my games and themps stay <90 (avg 75-80) without any thermal throttling. Ofc some benchmark scores are affected, but I don't care about numbers if my games still perform good.

yeah its quite funny how turbo messes up the temps, and how stable the temps become with it OFF, luckily usually its enough for my daily work basis to have it off, but I am considering repasting more and more, since with turbo ON, I noticed that after sleep/hibernation when I wake it up, despite no load, the fans crank up to 2400 and stay this way, until i switch the profile back and forth, can any of you try and replicate this as well?

just let it go to sleep using a custom fan curve at 20% fan like this and when the device wakes up and you log back into desktop the fans go to around 2400 (at 20-30% fans should stay around 2000-2100 and be almost silent, its the minimum value they can go before being OFF). At 2400 they are notable louder

Thank you so much Stefan, but, Is there a tutorial to do that? I dont know exactly what I have to modify in BIOS, and also, I dont know how to do that on Throttlestop.

Could you attach some pictures with the configuration? Or give me more details about how to do that. I have installed Throttlestop and there are a bunch of options.

Thanks in advance!

1. (Re)start the machine
2. Keep hitting 'DEL' to enter the bios
3. Hold Right shift+ right ctrl +alt +f2 to show advanced bios
4. Go to
>Advanced
>Power & performance
>Cpu - power management control

Then go down to 'cpu lock configuration' and set both to disable (see attachment 1)

Then save, exit and boot up to windows.
Open throttle stop. Now you can disable the turbo in the main screen for office work. And you have FIVR and TPL buttons (see attachment 2)

To limit pl1/2 open the TPL and set the values for Power Limit 1 and 2. 45 or 50 is a good value(maybe first uncheck the 'disable controls') (see attachment 3)

For reducing the speed open FIVR and set the max speed for the cores (see attachment 4) 35-39 should be sufficient for most games without sacrifying FPS but you can go up to 41 for all cores but then temps will be higher

Additioanlly i recommend disabling the turbo directly in the bios to keep the cpu cool during startup and autorun throttle stop with the 'turbo OFF' profile and when start gaming switch to a 'turbo ON' profile in throttle stop (can be set up with shirtcuts in Throttle stop settings)

That is one sorry looking LM Patch you have there. Can you not see that it is ripped on the top center? Clean that off completely with Acetone till it is spotless.
Is that the stock LM I am looking at in the picture? Looks like you been playing around because a machine does not do the job like that. If thats the best you can do for workmanship, your lost my friend ."IT SAYS NOT FOR USE ON LAPTOP" when I read the link.
And here is one of those Poorly Pasted From Factory Jobs that you claim "Dont Exist:

one thing I noticed recently, when the laptop goes to sleep or hibernate, not sure, when I load it up again, login etc, the MSI control will ramp up the fans on its own despite no load and custom fan profile set at max 20%, and that happens until I switch to a different profile and back again to my custom one then it stops, anyone else had similar 'issue'?
