    Unfortunately we know that most Gamer Notebooks have temperature issues with the factory settings which is absurd. As we have to live with this, the best way to solve the problem is to undervolt and underclock.

    In the image below I made a comparison between two settings in Fortnite.
    Default: CPU clock with no restriction running at ~3.9GHz and average temp 90º, GPU core clock ~1.6GHz and average temp 72º.
    Custom: CPU clock limited to 3.5GHz and average temp 68º, GPU clock limited to 1.4GHz and voltage limited to 0.7v and average temp 62º.

    Regarding performance, the difference is almost imperceptible, but the gain in temperature reduction is absurd.


    Yes thats because intel cpus heat up like crazy and throttle like hell when on turbo boost speeds and to me the best solution its still to repaste it with kryonaut or similar and then optimize and undervol on top of it and all the issues are completely gone also the manufacturers will never limit anything because they could be sued for it as if someone would complain why the cpus do not hit turbo boost speeds but hands up to acer that was the first manufacturer to undervolt some earlier predators on stock but thats alwasy a risk of getting sued by someone so the end user is free to do whatever they want/need to to get it working as they wish thats my personal view one thing all manufaturers should improve would be stop using rubbish thermal paste and start to use proper paste like for ex kryonaut even if they had to charge a bit more for it would be really worth it and avoid 99% of the thermal issues complaints :)
