So, i just recently repplied the thermal paste for my nitro, the only changes that i had noticed is there is no THERMAL THROTTLING during gaming sessions but still i get high temperatures 70-96 degrees celsius depends on the game i am playing and the settings for the aforementioned. Is this normal? Anyhow i was not the one who applied the thermal compounds i had gone to an authorized acer service center for the aforementioned.
Shall i tinker with the said fans and use intel xtu for undervolting? i have also a cooling pad which is perfectly angled to the intake for my laptop.
The said temperatures only happens when i switch from balanced ( underclocked no turbo boost ) to high performance ( with turbo boost ) Is this normal? Should i be alarmed? And even thou i get high temperatures, i have no thermal throttling issues. But when i use the battery there i can observe the said thermal throttling, i used intel xtu for the said observation. but when i plug in the chord the thermal throttling seems to disappear.
