I have a 15.6 , i7, 8 gigs ram , HD 7970m Gaming Laptop clevo 150em for about a year now. Assasins Creed 4 Blackflag( maxed out 1920x 1080) gets my temperature ( Msi afterburner in game monitoring) up to 87C. I bought Antec formula 6 termal Paste a while ago and reaplied it on the GPU core. The first time after i newly applied the thermal paste it was not going above 75C in Assasins Creed 4. Now once the laptop cooled down and I played the game again it increasesthe temp little by little, from 75c to 77c and keeps going slowly up to 80c again ( after 2 hours of gaming). My question here is with this HD 7970m card. Is there alot of difference between pastes in genarell ?. My way of thinking here is that once the paste gets hot it spreads across the surface and then once it cooles down looses paste off on the sides of the chip. Then when it heats up again it has therefore less paste in the center. Not sure about that but does anyone has any recomendations on keeping this card below 85c with maby a different Paste ? or a cooling paste pad ? What temps do you guys get with this game with a HD 7970m. ?
