Hello all! I'm new to the Lenovo community. I received my first ever ThinkPad X1 Extreme last week. So far, I'm really enjoying it. I've been running stress tests and find that the temperature runs at a high of 98c and the system does thermal throttle. I've started to tinker with the undervolting and the so far I'm at -0.120v. The system will still run at about 94c and throttles. I haven't tried to adjust any lower then that. I plan on opening the case and inspecting the factory paste. My plan was to remove the paste and replace it with the graphite thermal pad. I was hoping that by dropping to -0.120v that I would have noticed a better than 4c drop.
Has anybody else tried undervolting and/or adjusting other settings to keep the CPU a touch cooler?
