I tried to play BF4 and it seems this game is pushing the cooling to the limit ! ( i have the 1070 version) mostly I think because BF4 have high CPU usage plus I already undervolted the CPU by 90mv.

during gaming the GPU is around 82 degree with the fan at 4200rpm and cpu somewhere around 77 degree .

any idea fellas ?

    CPU temps seem fine, gpu a little on the hot side....perhaps a frame limiter to not stress is so much?  And or lock the voltage with the voltage/frequency curve? Also, consider having fans running at full tilt, if the extra noise doesn't bother you that much.
    As far as repaste, kiddhazze repasted his, but didn't get much improvement.

    really , what GPU temp you are getting ? though i think your cooling is different than mine since i have 1070.
    does that mean that evga used a good paste then ?

    do you think its a good idea to go with liquid metal ? because really 1070 seems to push the cooling to the limit and there is possibly for overclocking if it was cooler

    EVGA usually uses shinetsu thermal paste, which is good.

    Liquid metal would be a terrible idea.

    You have a laptop, so your temps are going to be higher. There is no way to stuff enough heat pipes and fins in there to get maximum performance. Again, liquid metal is a terrible idea, but if you want to risk killing your warranty and laptop, go for it.

    The cooling on the 1080 model is better for sure....GPU around 75 max.  
    Not sure how well KidHazze did with his repaste, but he used arctic silver, but I would recommend Grizzly Kryonaut, arguably the best non conductive paste out there.....perhaps one can achieve 5 degrees on the CPU.
    Liquid Metal is very tricky, and risk is high, in case a tiny drop spills on the motherboard or leaks out, so not for the faint of heart.  
    Also, repasting will void the warranty.
    That being said, liquid metal doesn't help GPU temps as much as on the CPU.  While the CPU can see up to 10C difference, the GPU will see only a couple degrees.  
    Have you tried locking the voltage on the GPU with Afterburner and the voltage curve....crtrl+F.
    An example of the curve would be like this.....where you flatten the curve after a certain voltage....so it won't pull more than that.
    In this example, it would be max 925mV with a +65 OC on the frequeny to 1800Mhz, but one can find the ideal point for ones needs and particular GPU.

    On the 1070 model, repasting does not require removing the motherboard, therefore I don't think it would void the warranty. The warranty void sticker is placed over one of the motherboard attachement screws. The rear cover and heatsink screws do not have warranty void stickers.

    The rear cover has a tamper evident sticker to inform EVGA if it has been opened, but I do not believe the warranty is void unless the motherboard is removed. I believe that the tamper evident sticker does not void the warranty and is instead used to simply inform EVGA technical support whether or not the laptop has been opened up. After all, it would be very easy to damage the tamper evident sticker by any other means during laptop transport.

    The 1080 model requires removal of the motherboard to repaste and therefore I believe repasting the 1080 model would void its warranty. Since the 1070 model does not require motherboard removal for repaste, I do not believe repasting the 1070 model necessarily voids the 1070 model's warranty; unless you break something in the process.

    I think you are correct 1080 version have the screws on the inside while mine is out .
    liquid metal is not a good idea sure my bad.

    I am thinking of using my diamond one cert 27 if thats its name what you think ? 

    anyone noticed that those 2 temps never change even under full load ? anyone have the same thing can confirm this ?

    Wow, your PCH runs as hot mine, mine will hit the 60s when gaming, and in deep idle, I saw only once of 43C, but just generally stuff will bump it to 50-53...used to be higher when I didn't undervolt the CPU, which is currently -70. I saw vistarshook's PCH at 37C. I wonder why, at least with a sample of 2 for the 1070, and 1 for the 1080, is the PCH so high on idle with the 1070. I believe from what I remember in another post when vistarshook was running a test, his, PCH was 37C using hwinfo.

    yeah PCH is always hot it does reach 80 when gaming Can i ask if your motherboard and CPU have the same temp as mine they  never  change even after gaming ?

    I never got to 80C on the PCH, but I got close with mid 70s, which is when I disabled Turbo, and currently, I'm maxed out at 2.7GHz with a -70 undervolt and at 2.7GHz, I'm good so far with the games I play and stuff on do it. Sure, yep, they constantly change, I've logged it with HWInfo too to see what's going on. Have you tried HWInfo with logging enabled?
