Hey folks,


First time poster here.

I have an issue with my Laptop where is randomly shutting down when running on battery power when running intensive tasks such as system scans or gaming. At first I thought that the fans may be blocked with dust build up and to my luck they were.


After giving theme clean I noticed better temperatures overall but shut down still persisted.


I have decided to do an isolation test and re paste cpu and gpu. The first thing I noticed was that the gpu heat sync pipes have been depressed on one side and as far as my limited understand extends I believe the pipes are internally under vacuum conditions.


Could this be leading to improper heat transfer or is this normal for heat sync to look this way?


I have attached the gpu pipe and cpu pipe for reference so you can see the difference.


Any help is much appreciated !
