Surprising this system does not use any TIM !!

See for your self review the IFIXIT teardown here: Retina MacBook 2016 Teardown. And this IFIXIT guide: Retina MacBook 2016 Logic Board Replacement

This ultra low power CPU based system has its limits. It's not designed to be more than a web surfer or school notebook.

I think you'll need to get a more powerful system if your system is thermally throttling.

Intel altered the naming which I think may have confused you: I5-7Y54 chip and the m7-6Y75 chip Also note the TDP is the same!
