OMEN 17-cb1000 Laptop PC (8VX05AV)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Whether the laptop Omen 17-cb1000 have a problem with the cooling design? After buying the laptop it had normal temperatures, but after about half a year the CPU temperatures started to reach 101 degrees Celsius. Even undervolting did not help. Then I found that I would replace the paste and thermocouples. After this operation, CPU temperatures under load did not exceed 85 (77-83) degrees Celsius. After less than half a year, or maybe less, I noticed that it heats up again to 96 degrees and there are processor temperature jumps after 25 degrees. I opened it again, the paste was not yet hard (it was practically normal), I changed the paste just in case and put the computer back together. The temperatures again dropped to 85 (77-83). Temperatures were ok until the first drive in the car. The computer runs 350 kilometers from time to time in a bag in the trunk. And probably during these drives the cooling must get some "slack". Now I changed the thermocouples again, the paste and gently bent the cooling plates, so far after the first ride it's okay, but after the next ride something will probably loosen again ... No problem with the graphics card, only the problem with the processor. It seems to me that these plates deform over time and there is not enough pressure. This causes the cooling to detach from the processor while it vibrates while driving, or it hits the processor and squeezes out the paste and then lacks it. I do not know.  Was there any cooling service action and can it be improved somehow? My previous ASUS gaming computer did not have such problems and it rode 350 kilometers week after week. For 5-6 years, the paste and thermocouples were changed twice.
