    what program do you guys use to monitor temperatures?

    Mostly HWINFO64 but @TukuiTukz showed above temperature graph from 3Dmark.

    Interesting ... too bad they can't do a decent job before shipping the units.

    What thermal paste did you use?

    Firebat, nice to see you on here mate. What non-default settings did you run to get that 17k gfx score? I hit c.16k using Synapse gaming profile, but no other mods.

    Shoot, I just put my ear to the power supply and I also noticed mine is buzzing (sort of inconsistently too). Should I raise this with Microsoft store or call Razer directly...?

    I have messed with OCing my gpu up to 200/600... I don't remember what exact settings were tuned for that run. I will say that at a certain point in OCing the GPU you stop seeing gains. Make sure to run windows power settings on balanced not max performance.

    Some ARCTIC MX-4 that I had already at home. It's not conductive and seem to do the job. I don't want to deal with liquid metal, it's conductive and risky in my opinion.

    Here are some comparisons before and after the paste and thermal pad job. I have been meaning to post for you guys. First 2 are stock paste/pads. These are 30 min Farcry 5 runs with a -.140 to the core and 190/200 on GPU.

    Just my curiosity, 190/200 is overclocking value core and memory like on afterburner right? Is it always should be like that or can you run with no OC both on memory and clock (0/0)? I think for some demanding games, OC could crash the game.

    Correct done through afterburner and it does not always have to be like that. You can run totally stock if you wish. Note that putting synapse on gaming mode will auto OC it to 100/300.

    Im hitting around 100-103C on my CPU when running games. :slightly_sad:

    am i damaging my processor?

    What games, AC Origins & FFXV & PUBG?

    I'm maxing out everything, Anti-alisaing , etc,etc literally everything on ultra or extreme

    on Diablo 3, Battlefield 4, Starcraft 2, ARMA 3, DOTA

    EDIT: Any advice? I want to play on the highest settings possible but i also don't want to harm my brand new razer blade

    Joikansai Well-Known Member VANGUARD

    Hmm, those games...
    Did you try limiting Turbo boost by setting processors state to 99% on power option advance setting? You did also undervolting right? This CPU seems running hot, intersting...can't wait to get mine...yes I think you're hurting the CPU on that temp, i was also limiting performance on my blade 14 for better temperature, I understand though with 144 panel anyone wants Max experience. Did you get extended warranty btw?
  14. TimDogg

    TimDogg Member

    extended warranty wasnt offered.

    where is advance power options?

    damn playing D3 right now and again hit 103 C after lower settings need to lower more
  15. Joikansai

    Joikansai Well-Known Member VANGUARD

    Lowering setting doesn’t lowering performance, it’ll only increasing FPS and could make temperature higher as my understanding. Right click the battery, power option, change plan setting, change advance power setting, on processor power management, max processors state to 99%.
  16. TimDogg

    TimDogg Member

    thanks set from 100% to 99% hopefully this helps a bit.

    Well i lowered anti-aliasing 2 levels, Physics from high to low, and clutter density a level down, and MAX FPS from 200 to 144 on D3.

    hopefully this helps. just experimenting here and there, before i wasnt using a temp software so ive prob been hitting these temperatures for a week now.

    This is still new laptops, poeple search only a bad side, there’s still a lot area to discover imo...
    Damn I’m still facing payment issues and rised the ticket...why don’t they offer PayPal anymore it’s faster...well for me at least.
    For this beast I wouldn’t recommend a year guarantee though, if you still have thermal issue send it back and try to get at least 2 years, never used it since I got always “well behavior one“, but bad system will start showing problems after first year gaming usage, so if you only have a year, out of Guarantee repair costs will be expensive, just like a new car, you wont buy also for a year guarantee do you?

    I'll test diablo 3 later tonight and see what temps I'm getting.

    Hmm so I should send it in for thermal repairs?]

    edit: its hitting max temps at 95 -97 on all cores on the loading menu for BF4 on ultra, Moving down the specs to High

    I ran speed fan and HWINFO side by side and its giving me different temps. Which do you guys think is more accurate?

    Interesting thermals difference from those two softwares, I saw poeple mostly look at HWInfo 64, so check other thermal software like this to see the accuracy.
    First I would like to rise ticket and see what support said about this. Honestly BF4 hitting over 95 isn't good for future proof of the Blade, that's why I recommend extended warranty at least 2 years.
    Did you also undervolt it?
