Acer Aspire V Nitro users: replace your laptop's thermal compound

I have Acer Aspire VN7-791G-71P5 with Intel Core i7-4710HQ and Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M.

 

Running Asus ROG RealBench stress test, CPU reached maximum temperature (95 °C) and was thermal-throttled to 2.6 GHz (almost no turbo). After I replaced thermal compound with Arctic Silver 5, CPU reached 80-85 °C and was not thermal-throttled (full turbo).

 

The pre-applied GPU thermal compound is actually comparable to the Arctic Silver 5; GPU temperatures did not measurably change after re-application.
