Repasting the Flex 14 81SS R7 3700U equipped laptop and analyzing the benefits.
Prior to and after repasting the notebook, we run 20-25 minutes worth of Prime95. We will analyze the clock speed as well as the temperature deltas between the two applications. Arctic MX-4 2019 will be used to repaste the laptop.

It is no doubt that lower temperatures results in higher clocks. While the clocks were greater than the pre-pasted configuration, the temperatures were lower. An expected result was to have either an increased clock speed with the same temperature, or the same clock speed with reduced temperatures. In this case, we got both – an increased (average) clock speed decreased temperature.
