Do you think that this laptop's thermal problem could benefit from repasting the CPU and GPU? I've seen laptops float in the mid 80's Celsius, but then drop into the low 70's after a repaste.

I own this version. Had to disable Turbo Boost to really see the CPU drop in temp... About 20 degrees. Undervolting didn't do much.

There is an error on this article. GM501 doesn't have Max Q. It is full size gtx 1070/1060. Also how hot does the core temperatures get while gaming? Thanks in advance!

FYI: There is performance mode in the bios that takes the geekbench score up to 2100-2200. Probably improves the performance of the all the benchmarks (especially the cpu bound ones) though likely at the cost of the battery when not plugged in.
