I own Acer v17 nitro black edition from about a month and I was very happy.
It did cover my expectation for hardware power combined with very good design.
However the laptop seems to have serious issues with the cooling.
I don't play very resource consuming games and in the matter of fact I play an online game which is about 5-6 years old.
During the in-game expirience I began to notice lag which made the game unplayable after a research I found that the CPU is overheating and there was a throttling which decreased the clock rate of the processor to 700 MHz.
CoolBoost is ON.
Active cooling is ON.
I even took the laptop to an autorized service and everything seems to be OK with the hardware cooling.
The only thing that helped and made the laptop usable for gaming is that I decreased the maximum CPU to 85%.
CPU now run at 2.2 GHz clock rate at most. ( Standard clock rate of the CPU is 2.6 to max. with Turbo Boost 3,6 GHz)
I don't believe that such expensive laptop should have such issues with such load.
Does someone have any solution for the overheating ?
Maybe someone from the Acer staff could help ?
I'm very from the product right now.
