I was Thinking, I would Open up my Lenovo Legion Y520 Laptop, come Fall, to Add Antec Nano Diamond 6, Thermal Paste,


To my Intel i7 2.8Ghz CPU.   OCC to 3.2Ghz, without Over Running the Fan.

I don't think changing the thermal paste is going to do very much for thermals. Maybe save 1-2C at most. Overclocking a laptop is never a good idea because they already have a TDP limit in place and designed around it.
