Short and straightforward question: How is Lenovo's thermal paste application usually on modern Thinkpads; is there a significant temperature difference ( >5C )between Lenovo's paste and standard non-conductive enthusiast paste or not really?
I'm thinking about re-pasting a T480 that's in the mail. But I don't want to risk cracking the CPU for no good reason, i.e. only if the Lenovo paste is usually somewhat badly applied.
I did try to search for previous answers, but didn't quite find one that applies. This thread for example is about the T430, so that's some years back.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
Running Burn In Test, with 100% load on CPU, RAM, 2D & 3D graphics, with TLP in AC mode (so everything is running at full speed), for 15 mins - my X230 (i5-3320) just manages to hit 80 degrees (with vents blocked - stoopid yes, I know, but was testing ThinkFan 'disengaged' mode )
T430 with i7-3740 (quad) @2.7Ghz hits about 80 degrees under same load with Kryonaut (Standard heatsink/fan combo, ie NOT the 430 Discrete Graphics heatsink with the extra heat pipe), from memory...?
Don't think i have ever seen any of my TPs hit 90 while using it...???
Highly recommended, IF you are going to re-apply...?
