    I think a 0.5mm thermal pad might be better.  Recently my screen has pushed out a little on the front. Press it back and it’s fine but the heat and pressure caused this I think. Still really happy with the results from 95+ degrees to around 73 is really good.

    Just sharing.

    From my experience from using the stock aluminium heat sink, and following the recommended mod by Chris, I find it that the 20 x 20 x 1 mm copper shim is to thick, causing the stock heat sink to bend when screwed back to the device. Further more adding 1 mm thermal pad on top the heat sink and closing the tablet case I find the overall mod is way to thick, it can be seen very clear by naked eye it cause unevenness on the back case, so I immediately open the case again an remove all the mod. I’ll try the same mod again but by using a thinner copper shim (0.5 mm) and also a thinner thermal pad (0.5 mm) and see how it goes. Hopefully it fit.

    Nice job @piotr. Cut outs look very clean. If I redo mine, I think I’ll try to make it as nice as yours. I have some screen pushing issues, but they haven’t bothered me enough to do something about it yet. I may consider using a 0.5mm copper plate, and a 0.5mm shim along with a 0.5mm thermal pad with all the right cutouts. The original heatsink is effectively 1mm thick, so that would only add 0.5mm extra.

    I’m done with my mod, using only stock heat sink, 20 x 20 x 0.5 mm copper shim, and 1 mm thermal pad on top the heat sink. The CPU temp down only 13-14 C (From 94 to 81).

    Do i have to use any thermal glue to put the thermal pad on top of the original heatsink? Can you recommend something?

    After much work getting it Open i finaly made a Small thermal Mod on this Tablet. I have put a thermal Pad on the Metal on the Board and closed it again. Without this and a Short Stress Test with Prime 95 i got over 100°! With the Mod it is 74° so a good improvement.

    I also want to make some editing with the Intel Tuning Programm. What config have you all used? The same from chris? Can someone recoment the config?

    So the copper shim may not be necessary? few extra degrees maybe?

    could you tell me what measures the thermal pad that you placed? thickness, brand, etc.
    thank you very much and sorry for my bad English;)

    Is it worth putting a shim on the RAM I wonder? Shame there’s no sensor… Anyone want to try stress testing it while open and use an IR thermometer?

    So i tested a bit and I am not so happy. Will the standart config of the device, the tenperatures are as i said. But when I put the config up ad Chris made it in his Video, it got over 100°. So the Metal plate on the Tablet is useles. You should build an own One as in the Video.

    Have you a gibt, how i can make holes in the Cooper plate for the screws? Would be cool if you have some hint because I never made something like that. I don’t know how Solid copper is

    Thank you very much for answering. I’ll make my own mod. Different from Chris.
    Only cover the graphics processor and a small copper block with three heatpipes sintered 1mm thick x 8 x 100 mm at the top.
    Each heatpipe holds 12w dissipation, cost 10 euros each. It will take time to arrive because I live in Spain and only sold in USA.

    The copper block will be 0.5mm thick and the copper plate that will be in contact with the processor will also 0.5mm. I will use a cutting machine CNC computer to make it all the more necessary.

    Each heatpipe anger copper plates connected at the other end for transferring heat from the processor.

    In short, my idea is to replicate the scale of our cube i7 book the same passive cooling system that has the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 with Core m3.

    En español:

    Muchas gracias por responder. Yo voy a fabricar mi propio mod. Diferente al de Chris. Solo cubrira el procesador y la grafica un pequeño bloque de cobre con tres heatpipes sintered de 1mm de grosor x 8 x 100 mm en la parte superior.

    Cada heatpipe aguanta 12w de disipacion, cuestan 10 euros cada uno. Tardara tiempo en llegar porque vivo en España y solo los venden en USA.

    El bloque de cobre sera de 0,5mm de grosor y la placa de cobre que estara en contacto con el procesador sera de 0,5mm tambien. Usare una maquina de corte por ordenador CNC para que sea todo sea mas preciso.

    Cada heatpipe ira conectado a placas de cobre en el otro extremo para transferir el calor del procesador.

    En resumen, mi idea es replicar a la escala de nuestras cube i7 book el mismo sistema de refrigeración pasiva que tiene la Microsoft Pro 4 con el Core m3

     

    Los materiales necesarios:

    . 1 x 50x50x0,5mm placa de cobre.

    . 3 x Heat Sinks STRAIGHT ULTRA THIN 5mmX100mm HEAT PIPE. Modelo Wakefield-Vette Heat Pipes.

    . 1 x 200x200x0,2mm placa de cobre. (para disipar el calor de los heatpipes)

    . Cinta aislante gruesa para evitar cortocircuitos.

    . Pasta termica Artic MX-4.

    . Pegamento termico para unir disipador y heatpipes.

    . 1x 25x17cm Lamina de fibra de carbono o vidrio para aislar de calor los componentes, sobre todo la batería.

    Y SOBRE TODO, MUUUUCHA, PERO QUE MUCHA PACIENCIA. JAJAJA. 😉

    MY thermal mod pushes on the screen but I’ve decided to leave as it is. I can’t see any damage or problem right now (except that my screen is out of the plastic frame of about 0,5mm).

    How can I increase ram usage to 4gb? I remember Chris mentioned that somewhere but I couldn’t find it.

    The problem is that the heatsink does not make proper contact with the CPU, right?

    Instead of doing the copper mod, can I just replace the thermal pad with a thicker, much better quality one?

    How thick do you think the new thermal pad should be? 1mm or 2mm?

    Hello guys, first post here. Congratz about this website/youtube channel, you are great.

    So I’m thinking about purchasing this one, even if I don’t need at all the stylus support it seems a killer device. I plan to do light gaming on it (League of legends) so I’m already looking about the thermal mod.

    So, it seems that the initial setup (1mm thick copper shim + 1mm thick cooling pad) it’s pushing the device too much and causing screens problem, right? Which one option would be optimal?

    A) 0.5mm thick copper shim + 0.5mm thick cooling pad

    B) 1mm thick copper shim, no cooling pad

    C) 1mm thick cooling pad, no copper shim

     

    Thank you guys.
