Re: SC15 CPU Temps
I run an SC17 and those temps are ~5C hotter than mine when it was stock at full fan speed during game loads. For reference, I switched from the original paste to Panasonic PGS and dropped ~4C, then switched to liquid metal and dropped another 6C. There are better TIMs than what the laptops shipped with. Considering the increased amount of work you would have to do compared to the SC17, I recommend you apply the best of whatever TIM type you are comfortable with. Liquid metal is amazing but also needs special consideration, Panasonic PGS(IC Graphite) or good paste likely will drop your temps ~4C. If you have any thermal tape(tape form of the pads found on memory chips) you can cover the heat pipes and probably get another ~2C. Under game load I would not expect any of the configurations to be better than ~77C.
