benlisquare posted a topic in Off TopicNot that long ago, I made this post which reported on the extremely high GPU temperatures that I was getting while playing World of Warships, specifically in regards to the main port screen. At the time, my GPU became as hot as 86 degrees Celsius at the port screen, and 81 degrees Celsius while in battle. Fearing that one day the silicon components of my computer would melt or burn up in flames, I decided that it was about time that I replaced the thermal paste for the CPU and GPU. And so, I purchased a tube of Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste, and began to disassemble my laptop.
