Re: X1 Extreme - Heat Issue

I would love to know how you got your X1E to go above 80C. There are multiple reports of the machine being unable to go past 80C without thermal throttling, my machine included. No amount of BIOS/XTU tweaking has allowed me to go above 80C.

Re: X1 Extreme - Heat Issue

Believe me, I wish I had an answer!  When I first removed the factory paste, there were a lot of pockets, as if it wasn't applied properly.  So I added the graphite pad.  This showed no improvement, if anything it was worse.  When I took the fans off to add the MX-4, I paid close attention to make sure the pads didnt move, which they didnt.  So I believe it was the factory paste and graphite pads that were causing all the issues.  Now the X1 runs as cool as a clam.

Re: X1 Extreme - Heat Issue

usually factory thermal material is used to excess which itself problematic

 

TIM should be very thin as the needs are only to fill voids

Re: X1 Extreme - Heat Issue

Thanks for the read!  I'm just happy this little repair is yielding fantastic results.  I guess after a few on and off cycles it should improve just a smidge.  So I'll retest.  I haven't used my laptop in the last few days.

Re: X1 Extreme - Heat Issue

How do you keep XTU from resetting back to 0 when you reboot the machine?

Re: X1 Extreme - Heat Issue

use the CPU and BIOS defaults, the power savings feature will look after the voltages and clocks

Re: X1 Extreme - Heat Issue

Have to hit the apply button. I restarted it a couple times to verify it keeps the settings.

Re: X1 Extreme - Heat Issue

Whenever I hit "apply -100" and then restart my machine, then start XTU, the core offset shows "0" instead of "-.100" 

 

How do you check to see if yours is applied to the system?
