Dear Acer Community, 
I have my laptop for more than half a year. One-Two months ago, I felt a heat in my fingers when I touched the keyboard when I played games, but I thought that it is fine and good for a gaming laptop beast, but after a months, my laptop's performance in-game was pretty bad, on Ultra 55+ fps but alot of fps drop that was unplayable, and I saw that my clock speed was only 300-800MHZ. I tried to underclock it but it didn't help and made my experience worse, from 95 degrees Celsius GPU+CPU to 96-97 degrees while playing games. I always kept my fan speed at max- 6100+RPM.
I need your help!

Thanks, HUGABUGA.

P.S Some things that I thought that made this happened:
Overclock
Underclock (Did it after the Overclock)

    Aside from checking that topic, there is something else i would check if i were you.

    Check for dust. You said you have your laptop for more than a year now, it is possible that you had dust buildup. If you are unconfortable opening your laptop just buy and use a simple vacuum cleaner for pc. Don't use air compressor or air blowers from outside the vents however, by blowing air in the insire, the eventual dust that is inside... will remain inside :p 

    Check for dust, and then check that topic too.

    The heat issue has long since been recorded in these forums. Please take a look at the sticky thread for options: https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/535036/faq-cpu-gpu-temps-fps-settings-other-info/p1.

    As for worse, it is likely dust in the fans.

    Well, ok that's a gaming laptop, but 95°both  on cpu and gpu seems to me really too close to the "melting" zone! here, you have to fix it as soon as you can (strange that the system, when it reaches such temperatures does'nt auto shut off to prevent major damage).
    As Skree just said you have to get rid of the built up dust inside, above all on the radiator fins, and , at this point (once opened ) a well done repaste with a good product, and then you can be sure that the laptop will thank you!

    I see a potential issue... why is your fan speed regular at custom, and set to min? Please move that to auto. Also, until the issue is resolved, please get an external usb fan that could help reduce the temps a bit.

    Thanks guys, I didn't cleaned the dust yet, but I underclocked my CPU! While im playing on the max usage it runs pretty fine- ~85 degrees Celsius, CPU+GPU. In addition, I turned my fans at max speed as @sri369 suggested. But it crashes every time after some minutes that Im playing games or running TS BENCH, what should I do? BTW, should I enable PROCHOT 96 degrees Celsius?

    Thanks again, HUGABUGA<3

    OK,do I need to open the case of the laptop for cleaning the dust or can I just using the vacuum cleaner without opening the case?

    One thing you could do is to get a cheap USB fan for under $10, and point it to the location top of function keys. That should help lower temps by about 5-20 degrees.

    Can you send me a link of the USB fan please?  BTW the underclock affect my cpu only- my cpu temp is 80-90, but the GPU is reaching 95 degrees easily...

    I cleaned the dust that was on the fans, but I still have high temps, and the CPU temps are higher then the GPU temps, should I enable ThrottleStop?
    BTW when I'm running PredatorSense, the fans of the CPU are jumping from 6000rpm to the max- 6122rpm, while its on max speed. Is it OK?

    I'm running ThrottleStop, and the max temps that Im getting while im gaming are around 80-85 degrees Celsius, after I cleaned the dust. is it fine?
    GPU usage- 90-%99%
    CPU usage- 40%-70%
  • SkreeSkree Posts: 67Member Devotee
    Yes, if you cleaned the internals and are using throttlestop, if you are playing very heavy games getting around 80 or even 85 degrees is acceptable.

    It's about what i get when playing far cry 5.

    Here you go: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003XN24GY
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NDC63CQ

    These are the two I got. I use one of these at a time... only as needed.
