  1. Please redo ALL the same benchmarks you did in previous video, with exactly the same GPU speeds and external monitor and then compare the difference with and without liquid metal applied. A 5minute video with just the results is enough. 🙂

  2. Didn’t try LM or changing any thermal paste but Intel XTU is a godsend when it comes to tablets, core voltage offset reduces the temps a lot (which matters when passive cooled) and increased the battery life a load as it would sit around 90% doing simple tasks

  3. Should do a video on how to diy nickel electroplate a copper laptop heatsink. Since nickel plated copper has galvanic resistance almost the same as galinstan (liquid metal), it keeps the gallium in the liquid metal from absorbing and «drying out» like it does with pure copper.

  4. What happens if you max out the turbo boost power bar ? Isn’t it suppose to give you more clockspeed since you remove the power limit. About the thermal limit, the CPU will protect itself from thermal limit. For the battery life thingie, I believe notebooks do not hit turbo boost when on battery power by default unless you set it in bios. So whatever setting you do to the turbo boost power limit has no effect on battery mode.

    • I experienced mainboard VR throtteling so even bigger clock drops. Guess we’d need better VRM cooling for that

  5. Is the tuning from Intel Extreme Tuning Utility applied at reboot into Windows or at level of Bios? I’m just seeing if I can use it to modify settings in Windows and then use them within MacOS (hackintosh).

  6. I’ve also had pretty good sucess underclocking. I have an old Macbook Air and gaming on it was horrible, and if Im being honest it still is but it’s a lot more smooth. I applied liquid metal and I undervolted but still had pretty awful results. As soon as it hit the power limit while gaming the cpu speed would drop to around 900Mhz(out of 1.8Ghz max) and the Gpu would drop to 450Mhz(out of 1Ghz). After undervolting the GPU to 700Mhz (it wouldnt let me alter the cpu speed) it stopped hitting the power limit and the cpu and gpu would no longer throttle at all. Made for a much smoother experience.

  7. hey der8auer, I recently bought the Lian Li O11 Dynamic from CaseKing, but I noticed that your site spelled English wrong. It say Englisch. I find it funny and dont mind, but maybe it it would be good to look at 😉

    BTW, any idea what the delivery time is for the case I ordered? I saw that the arrival date was pushed from the 27th of June to the 11th of July.

    • iGPU is located in the same die as the GPU, the second die is just chipset die which does not produce much heat. I know with 5th gen there is an intentional cut out on the copper heatsink to reduce chipset die contact and ensure maximum CPU contact.

  8. Damn, that laptop almost outperforms my i5 7600k desktop in Cinebench. Which is a 91w TDP part. Wow.

  9. 10:10 use another pc with an hdmi recorder… i use old matrox mxo2 max, but only goes to FullHD 30fps progressive, or 59i, there are many other brands, blackmagic h.264 pro recorder, hd elgato, startech, magewell, etc…

  10. 12:30 i will never use electric conductive thermal compound, i use Antec Formula 7 but want to try CoolerMaster MasterGel Maker, Not Pro…

  11. Why not use TPFC to run the fan at max and disable power limit throttling?

    But also, IMHO it doesn’t make sense to liquid cool a MOBILE laptop like the X1C. Too high risk.

  12. On my T480s with the i7-8550u and Kyronaut + max fan (70) using TPFC I got 700 points+ — same as my old i7-6700 (non K)

  13. der8auer — how about further insulating the core from other components using either a) thin 0.5mm or lesss thermal pads along the outsides of the core package, or b) thermal material that interacts with the liquid metal, so that if there are any ‘leaks’ of Gallium, they will be ‘absorbed’ or even form an ionic bond with to make a nonconductive compound

  14. Great video. If you are worried about liquid metal, you can just use high performance non-metal paste and do the same adjustments for almost as excellent results…

  15. Won’t the CPU not clock as high with a lower core voltage? I’m pretty sure the CPU is aware of what voltage it needs for specific clocks and if it doesn’t see that higher voltage it may spend more time clocked lower. At least that’s how my 3570k seems to work.
