  1. Repasting
    Before repasting I got CPU temps up to 95 degree.
    also CPU fan working very often and at the high speed.

    after repaste CPU temps not more 82 degree (if load CPU 100% + GPU 100% CPU temps - around 84 degree)
    for repasting I used TF8 thermalright thermal paste (tried Grizzly Kryonaut for CPU - but looking like TF8 got 1-2 degree better result and it more dense for replacing pink thermal pads)

    Repaste process:
    1. Before repaste -removed fans

Ubuntu + Nvidia + on demand + external display

Nvidia added on-demand, but it not working good with external display, for example google chrome got white area rectangles instead menu with external display.

to fix it, you can use next aliases in you bashrc:

alias nvidia_run='__NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=1 __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia __VK_LAYER_NV_optimus=NVIDIA_only'

alias intel_run='__NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=0 __VK_LAYER_NV_optimus=non_NVIDIA_only'

Communications methods during a normal working day.
(evolution - since Exchange, thunderbird - since imap is better)
Is it too much communication programs I am using?)
What about you ?
