Hello,

I have an AW R5 17 (CPU: I-9 8950hk/GPU: GTX1080.) I repasted/repadded a couple times, but still 10 degrees C + higher temps on Cores 0,2,3. In order to create better heatsink balance, does anyone know which where cores 0,2,3 are physically located on the metallic part of the CPU?

In other words, is core 0 located upper left, middle left, lower right, deadcenter, etc. on the CPU? It would be amazingly helpful if someone knows exactly where all 6 cores (cores 0-5) are located on I-9 8950hk? Again, just trying to understand which part of the heatsink i need to tweak so it lays flat on the CPU for the most even core temps possible, especially on core 0,2,3.

Thanks in advanced. Any other tips on re-balancing heatsink are appreciated.
