    No ressource unfortunately. The blade 15 is really easy to upgrade. You just need to be really careful with the ribbon cables after you remove the back enclosure. There is 2 ribbons cables, just unplug the bigger one, you don't need to unplug the smaller one. There small socket lever on the large ribbon cable, don't forget to lift it carefully.

    Removing the vapor is really simple, there is 3 screws (top left, top right, bottom middle-left, see red dot on pictures) Remove those 3, remove 4 cpu screws, and remove 4 gpu screws. Pull out. That's it.

    After removing the vapor, you should have exactly what you see on the picture.

    Why manufacturers made us opening the system, isn’t that bad for them...Never opening my Blade I did that only on my Razer Edge it was also after years usage out of warranty time upgrading internal ssd ram cleaning etc, but not on 2 weeks Products. Razer make a decent thermal paste job please or it’ll come high RMA rate...including me if through undervolting and other software tweak it still stays high I’ll probably send it back:/ Because I’ve also policy on my laptop purchase, that keeps it always runs long.

    Thanks a ton, that helps a lot! What thermal paste would you recommend?

    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?

    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

    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?

    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

    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%.

    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.
