    This is a 15W quad core CPU, it can only sustain maximum clock speeds for a short amount of time. It performs very well in single threaded applications(where a single core is used), but when it comes to 4 core loads, the 15W power limit(it can vary depending on the manufacturer from 10W to 25W) isn't just enough to keep the cores running at very high frequencies. When the temperature rises the power needed to run at certain clock speed increases and as the power is limited, then the clock speed needs to be reduced. This is thorttling due to power limit, not high temperature. The temperature at which the system beings to throttle the CPU is around 96C.
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    You can increase the CPU's performance a bit by undervolting it with XTU or Throttlestop. Less voltage equals less power consumed, in other words the performance per watt will increase a bit.
