/g/ I need help.
I'm using a MSI GS70 w/ I7-4700HQ 2.4 GHz. It also has a GTX 765m.
Here's a brief rundown of what's happened:
> left hinge snapped
> facia/bezel cracked
> wireless antenna broke
> removed screen
> changed thermal paste
> propped up behind monitor as a desktop pc w/ ethernet
It's developed weird lags and CPU spikes.
Pic related is my speccy and a proposed build. I'd like to still use this MSI as a PC at my dad's place.
Thoughts? Suggestions? If I can get the price even lower I'd be happy.

>BUYING FUCKING WINDOWS FULL PRICE NIGGER WHAT ARE YOU DOING???? if you really want a legit verison of windows just buy a legit windows 7 key on ebay for like 10$ and just upgrade it to 8 or 10.... or you know just download it....
>spend the money you save with windows on a fucking cpu cooler.... Thermalright macho is really good and cheap because you fucking need a cpu cooler just be sure it fits in the case
NEXT TIME USE >>>/wsr/ you fucking nigger last time we helped you
also like i said>>52264428
really looks like you fucked up your cooler(forgot to remove plastic foil on it) or something. If you dont want your cpu anymore sent it to me in germany I take it.
The speccy is for my MSI laptop. It was getting >90 at idle.
> take laptop apart
> remove CPU and GPU cooler
> clean old paste off surfaces
> apply new paste (arctic silver 5)
> attach coolers
> put laptop back together
I also blew out all the dust.
nvm just looked at the temps just saw its a laptop, nvm then just get a pc.
also i recomment a at least gold cert PSU its worth it. look at thomes hardware psu chart and pick one its about the same price maybe 10$ but its well worth it!
In the meantime, are you sure the heatsink touches the chip. I had a problem on my laptop where the VRM where overheating. Turns out stock they had thermal pads about a full mm thick meaning there was a fuckhueg gap between the chips and the heatsink. Fixed that up with some copper shims.
Godspeed. PS, I have a smug anime girl there because I was going to to blog for a bit and it made me feel smart.
I found the measurement my balling up some clay and applying the heatsink. The resulting patties (four VRMs, four data points) gave me my air gap size.
