    Yes its that video that's me thinking. Especially about the heat spreading.

    I find it ridiculous that all of this troubleshooting and maintenance needs to be done on a brand new $2,400 + laptop. We shouldn't need to be opening this thing up for thermal paste, graphite pads and whatever else. The only reason we should be opening these things up is to upgrade them. This is holding me back from ordering.

    Cyraxus,
    I read what your saying and its not that the laptop or any others won't perform or protect them selves from excessive temps.
    What we are discussing is to lower the temps even further so the fans will come on less if at all and reduce throttling.

    Benchmark stress testing is not a normal activity and you will probably find what ever your normal usage is, it will perform admirably. Example, I don't know what equipment you currently use but how often (if at all) is cpu/gpu at 100%
    The only cooling I would say is a please consider and wont void or challenge anyone is to put thermal pad on the SSD.

    Can I RMA it and have razer repaste the thermal? I never re-pasted only applied it to a new CPU and motherboard.

    Im very afraid to take it off and I don't want to void the warranty even though its one year since im hitting such high temps

    I doubt it, I would think that they're not setup to repaste, just for the sake of repasting. Besides one reason that many people repaste, is to use a higher quality thermal grease, so having them re-do it, may not give you the results that others receive.

    I agree but for me, its more about lowering the heat. While I don't have a RB15 yet, I'm looking at what steps I can perform to lower the temps, so if they're in the 80c, I'd like to see what options I have to push them down to 70c.

    I personally won't be re-pasting the RB15, I've done it before but I'd rather avoid it this go around

    Playing monopoly or solitaire, maybe you’ll get 70c, Kidding;) You can lowering max processors state on power option like to 80 or 70%, i think you’ll get lower cpu temperature but with lower cpu performance as trade off. Low 80ish is okay on long term usage. I saw Razer support even said over 90 is okay, but not for me, and I won’t also opening my Blade, maybe in the future for upgrade only.

    Ran 'Forest' (horror/survival game) and it hit mid 90s - 99/100C even on low settings.

    What is considered 'long term' usage lol.

    Playing on low setting won’t help cpu temperature down it’ll maybe even increase it because the FPS will be more and cpu have to rendering things more. Especially on such open world games. Limiting performance like disabling turbo boost or limiting FPS will help better. Or you can’t just go back to under 100ish FPS;) It’ll be better for lifespan your laptop imo, unless you have that 4 years MS store super protection plan, in that case you can play all maxed and heat the cpu everyday lol;)

    I tested D3 for you.. was usually sitting in the 70s sometimes low 80s for CPU temps. I feel like you just got a bad paste job there's no reason for your temps to be this high. Reach out to support and they should take care of you. Some games WILL hit 90+ and that's ok. But if you are getting super high temps all the time then something is wrong.

    I’m proud finally see Razer laptop on top 1070 and 8570H Firestrike benchmark :big_grin_::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye_::cool_::rolleyes:

    Just giving a hope to rb6freak on 32rd place to get to to higher place, he took also his setting review on egpu.io somehow...and also quite boring seeing MSI laptops on top;) I’m still seeing improvement possibilities since graphics score should at least 20K, hope this could be addressed with software update, like windows or intel update.

    Guys how's the Blade 15 temp when just doing light work load like coding after like 4-5 hours straight ? Is it easy to get warm even when not gaming ?

    Android dev here.
    Temps are okay? Haven't been of concern. Of course, it depends on what you're doing. I just put the Blade into regular mode/not performance mode when coding so my fans don't spin up when building.

    I still think gradle secretly mines bitcoin when "building".

    Mine is typically mid 40s to low 50s with low end work. I don't code, but if I'm web browsing, working on a Word doc, Excel sheet etc.

    That's what I'm seeing as well.

    Hmm. I’m concerned with how hot these things are running. What’s the product life of a laptop running in the high 90s if you game on them regularly?

    My old blade 14 2017 sometimes hitting 90 on gaming (AC Origins, FFXV) but never had hardware issues after over a year usage. My Blade 15 now runs in similar cpu temperatures with Blade 14, low 80ish with disabling turbo boost and undervolting it. Performance in real usage isn’t so different with max setting and ultraboost enable, it’s out of box, no repasting. I can make it hitting mid 90 on gaming by maxing all default settings on Far Cry 5 but FPS difference isn’t huge, prefer cooler on high and turbo boost disable, still butter smooth hitting 90ish FPS.

    Give me one!
    The 13.3" 2k stealth i don't know haha, i want a blade because i'm a Windows Student BUT i haven't money for a second laptop.

    I precise that i only have an 2015 Acer with a 960m 4gb :/

    These CPU's are very good at withstanding high temps. Unless you are pegged at 100c most of the time you will be fine.
