I am going to order sager laptop core i7 10875H and rtx 2070 super with 32 gb ram.
For which options should I go for in thermal paste, pads or heat sinks for highest performance in least price?

Should I use a combination of things?

Wow, talk about nickel and diming a deal to death. You want all of these things - and you should be getting  a laptop with all of these things for a price on par with other manufacturers.

Just saying,

Hello Muhammad_Ahsan_Tariq, 

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   

 

I would like to let you know that in regards to thermal compound and thermal paste, they both perform the same task which is filling any gaps between the die/IHS and the thermal solution. We cannot say which one is better since they are third party materials; you should check with the manufacturer (OEM) of the system for further help on this. 

 

Also, we do not provide recommendations and support for overclocking, you may also want to ask the OEM for more recommendations on this.  

 

Regards,
