X1 Extreme - Heat Issue

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?


Thank you!
