    Hello

    I’ve had the Cube Mix Plus for a couple months now and wanted to do the heatsink mod.

    My question, How much more or less heat gets transferred to the back of the case?

    Right now without the mod, the case gets somewhat uncomfortable to the touch. Will adding more thermal pads help with the dissipation?

    It will still be very hot on the back when pushed hard like my Thinker i35 but it will increase the performance and lower heat on the chipset and motherboard and this will also increase the potential life of the unit.

    Okay so I’ve been running the heat mod and everything runs great now.

    I normally run the tablet on battery and don’t run into any issues with heat internally or from the back cover.

    But today while using the tablet, the battery ran low. So I plugged it in and started charging while still in use. I had the keyboard attached and tablet placed on a table. No contact with back of the tablet. I then decided to take a break and reached around to close the tablet. To my suprise the back of the case was insanely hot. So hot I had to let it cool down before handling it.

    I checked the internal temps and they where in the 80s. Normally they would be in the high 60s.

    Is it normal for the back cover to get this hot while charging and in use?

    I’ve also checked power plans for running on battery and plugged in, no difference. I see no difference in performance while plugged in, or running off battery.

    Actually, the heat mod can be done without losing warranty if you do it properly. It might be a bit scary for some people but it is actually pretty easy. If you ever want to go back the normal situation; open everything back up, remove the copper shim, clean the cooling paste off, replace the old cooling pad back and done.

    I would recommend everyone to use good cooling paste on the processor. It really made a difference in my situation: I could clearly see a difference in temperature when I re-did the entire mod. 11 degrees cooler, no joke.

    To answer someone’s other question: I am always putting in the USB-C charger while gaming on this device. Highest recorded temperature is 79, This is with the heat sink mod. I am sure this is safe. I even upped the voltages to keep the CPU/GPU boost for longer and override the voltage throttling.

    Hi!

    Sorry for my late response. I used Intels XTU and some BIOS changed.

    You can use these files:
    https://mega.nz/#!8RcUkYjB!18AFgmzZ–2EI0mhKcuNdyQB9pqZpvwQXW7iTshXYKE

    use the older version of XTU to import the configuration file. Only after that you can update XTU. Otherwise the file won’t load.

    Whole guide here:

    (not mine)

    Works pretty well. But make sure you do the heat sink mod first as I described here before.
