    Liquid metal stains on cpu and gpu die

    Sorry for the confusion, I removed the heatsink because the ram was under the heatpipe, lm was applied. Adjusted the lm with the qtip as I did the previous 5 times and closed it. Temps were about +7c so I opened ot again and added more lm, same result. Cleaned it off with 90% alcohol and took...

    Liquid metal stains on cpu and gpu die

    Used paper towel and cotton sticks but it feels like that the surface has bumps, like the lm dried up and hardened somehow. Atm normal thermal paste is giving me better results than lm, so I'm guessing that the heatsink didn't make proper contact and the lm hardened and with the later...

    Liquid metal stains on cpu and gpu die

    So, the other day my notebook started freezing and buzzing so I had to take it apart only to discover that it was the hdd. Before taking apart my temps were just great 73c max on cpu and 66c max for gpu with lm, cleaning up the old lm with 90% alcohol and applying new lm raised the temps by 7c...

    My Liquid Metal Experience

    If you take look at the gpu heatsink you see that it didn't make good contact if I'm not mistaken, how would I proceed to fix that?

    My Liquid Metal Experience

    A couple fo weeks ago while rendering a video 100c on my cpu caught my eye, I knew that it was time to do something about it and after a nice research on google I decided to try them all. Undervolting, fan profile and replacing thermal paste, but I still wasn't happy with the results. Then I...

    1.6v on gpu core?

    I read many tutorials and none mentioned what the 1.6v slider were, just wanted to be sure that it wasn't a bug otherwise I would flash 1.6v and kill the card lol

    1.6v on gpu core?

    Thanks for the guide, I read it but the voltage table is different than mine, and still doesn't explain what the 1.6v values are.

    1.6v on gpu core?

    Svet said that gpu bios is separated from the main one, and I flashed a gtx 880m a couple of times.

    1.6v on gpu core?

    Well that is why I'm asking here :) but in case of brick I can just flash the original bios from a bootable right? Also gpu-z never showed more than 1v over long periods of full load at 1038mhz, but in the bios tweaker is full of 1.2mv values, I'd like to know what I can adjust and what not.

    1.6v on gpu core?

    Hello, I'm trying to understand the voltage table in maxwell bios tweaker 2, as far I know the card runs at 1.2v right? Then why is there 3 columns with 1.6v max??

    Need help to unlock medion laptop bios

    UPDATE: So got help from Svet and now I have an unlocked bios! Undervolted the cpu and other stuff by -100mv and I got a -6c drop in cpu temps :)) Now the only thing left to do is undervolt the gpu as well and get some liquid metal :toast:

    gtx 970m 3gb custom bios

    2-3c reduction would be great, I did flash custom bios on mobile gpu before but it was for overclocking not undervolting :^)

    gtx 970m 3gb custom bios

    Hi, because I want to bring the temperatures as low as possible. Tbh I would prefer to unlock the bios and being able to control the fan and voltages. But the msi forum is bugged and won't let me post there, therefore I'm trying to settle with a simple vbios flash atm.

    Need help to unlock medion laptop bios

    Hello and thanks for answering, forgot to mention that xtu gives no readings and even ts has no control, that is why I want to unlock the bios. Also I'm not happy with the default fan profile, basically it lets the cpu cook at 88c and gpu at 78c when pushed to max, while with 100@ turbo fan...

    gtx 970m 3gb custom bios

    Hello, I have a medion erazer x7833 laptop and I would like to make a custom vbios to undervolt the gpu but, at the voltage table there is many voltage sliders. Does anyone know which one I have to adjust? Also gpu-z says that the max vddc was 1v at 1038mhz. Thanks in advance for any help!
