Lapbook SE Copper Heatsink Mod - Lower Max Temps Up To 20 Degrees C

Lapbook SE Copper Heatsink Mod - Lower Max Temps Up To 20 Degrees C hi everyone and welcome to another copper heat sink thermal mod a video that I should never have to really do if manufacturers would get things right to start with so on thier Chuwi lapbook se what's happening is with some units well it's the first batch that we're looking at they've just used like this little pressure pad here to keep a bit of pressure on here but really should have gone with a thermal pad on the top there so what I'm going to do is put a two millimeter thermal pad cut it out and put it just in that space over the top of where the chipset is and I'm also going to do a repays they use the thermal pad now the thermal pad is fine but might say almost got up to above 85 degrees so just getting a little on the hot side and if you want to tweak the power limits or you want maximum performance then it's advisable to do this mod here now you can also get away without actually doing anything if you don't like use and its performance is fine to you and you're not comfortable opening up a laptop then please whatever you do don't go this far don't do this mod here in case you might may break something or ruin it and you do this all of course at your own risk now first up is to remove the screws of course and then just lift this out of the way that is our heatsink an extra precautionary step it would also be before actually doing what I've just done is to remove the power from this okay so that's removed I'll give myself a slap on the hand for that remove the factory thermal pad which I've done right now clean up the chipset which I've already done here with some arctic clean but you can use alcohol now looks to me like Chile made some PCB changes here to the layout where the chipset is because where it centers is not right here it's here so that's where the chips it's going to be so I'm going to do is use a copper shim this one's 20 millimeters by 20 millimeters but you really should go with probably 15 by 15 and smaller than there actually to one millimeter is the thickness that's going to go right on top here now I know there's those resistors if you've seen my other videos there's those resistors around they're quite close it could cause a short now you can put nail polish over the top of that I'm not going to be that cautious really because I've done this so many times and I've never had a problem I've traveled with the laptops as long as you put a bit of thermal paste on there there is a gap of about a millimeter between those resistors and this so they're never actually going to come into contact well they shouldn't place a non conductive thermal paste on the top here so I'm going to go with some in th one this is a reasonably high quality one but this is not a hundred watt CPU this is only like a six watt CPU six point five or ten watt TDP what are you going to sit later on so it doesn't really matter too much that it's super high quality but at least a decent one so that means that I'm going to use here I'm gonna put a little bit on here and I'm gonna split it round to a thin layer I like to use the begi method you do whatever method you want and you feel is the best so my thermal paste is applied here and yes it's probably too much but I prefer to be more than there not enough then place the copper shim this is 20 millimeters by 20 millimeters and it is one millimeter thick this is going to go right on top here now there are two ways you can go with us you can either reuse that thermal pad which was that blue one you can put that back on top here or I'm gonna go with some thermal adhesive so that's going to go on the top a fine layer of that and that means it's going to glue itself on top of the factory copper heatsink then screw in that copper heatsink again now what I'm doing because I've used the same adhesive I'm going from one side to the other like that diagonally and just go around slowly tightening them all up until don't over tighten it though because you could end up having a bit of a problem without popping out from the actual PCB but it shouldn't be too bad that's gonna be a pro now applying a lot of pressure on top of that chipset which is good that's what we want the last step before we plug in the battery is to remove this right here and now put a thermal pad on the top I'm going to go with two millimeters thickness now remember where the chipset is located it is not right there it's more here so that's where I'm going to place this about there is what I'm going to do it won't really matter too much as long as it's going to have contact now with the back of this metal which it will putting that now on the top and I can feel that that is actually pressing down perhaps two millimeters is a little too thick actually I can see actually no with two millimeters it's clipping just fine once you put the screws on and everything that's gonna be applying a very decent amount of pressure on top of that chipset but you could possibly go with the one millimeter I think and stress testing it just like I did in the unboxing video the same exact kind of test so just running Geekbench non-stop I had windows going on background updates and things like that the temperatures are just so much better so instead of 85 degrees it's now 59 maximum that is a massive difference and why not I have the power limits now completely disabled in order to do this you need to disable it in the BIOS and then also run this software rewrite everything method and now it can use all the power at once the GPU gets the biggest benefit here so the frame rate here now this is the half-life standard half I've lost Coast GPU test and the frame rate has basically doubled here yes the temperatures are creeping up a little bit more but they are still very good 63 degrees C but of course now it uses all the power at once this generates a lot more heat but overall looking very good we can boost the performance up here and I highly recommend this copper heatsink mod if you want to get the maximum performance out of this particular laptop but don't attempt it if you're not comfortable opening up a laptop you don't have to do this if you don't intend to game if you're just doing normal light tasks then you won't have any problems how it comes out of the box .
