My system is built off the Clevo p775dm3 barebone and is currently equipped with a core i7-7700 CPU and a GTX 1080, of late I have noticed that its crashing on multiple games depending on the CPU and GPU load..I used MSI afterburner to monitor temps and depending on the game the CPU hovers between 90-100 degrees celsius,which is definitely not ideal..

Things Ive tried:
reinstalling the graphics driver,using display driver uninstaller.
updating directx.
scanning for memory errors.
extensive scanning for virus, trojans, malware etc.
clean install of windows 10 on my primary drive.
Thoroughly cleaning the vents and repasting the CPU and GPU using arctic silver 5(pics attached)

None of these seem to have worked,though the repaste has made my GPU run slightly cooler.

Spoke to the guys, they are suggesting a CPU replacement..Alternatively I could also go in for a delid, but not inclined as the system is still under warranty. (CPU warranty separately covered by Intel)

Here is a video highlighting the issue:

Any other suggestions are also welcome.

1. That is too much paste. Thermal paste is there to fill in the microscopic gaps between the cpu and the heatsink. Over applying paste is detrimental to the cooling.

Is the fan for the cooler working? Do you hear it spinning?

Laptop fans have a tendency to die.

had to repaste the GPU as well because of a single copper heatpipe covering both CPU and GPU.

Do you have a pic or video tutorial showing how to repaste correctly ?
I used the dot method and spread the paste evenly using plastic.

The second video shows why you don't need so much paste. His first application is actually too much, the paste is too thick. The second dot method is good but they just didn't use enough.
