I don't recognise reducing the performance of the device in order to reduce the temperatures as solution.
@dkrack Predator and Nitro products are engineered to withstand higher operating temperatures than traditional notebooks. These systems include features that help with cooling and heat dispersion. The CPU and GPU are designed to handle temperature spikes in excess of 98 degrees Celsius without causing damage to the components. It is common for PC temperatures to spike temporarily during heavy gaming or graphic usage. If the system encounters excessive temperatures that could damage the hardware, it will automatically shut down to protect the components from becoming damaged.So please dont know worry about the temp.Click on 'Yes' if the comment answers your question!
Okay I understand that... My point is; Shouldn't it be properly pasted before I get the laptop? (Especially for this price) I didn't see them saying, "Please note that you will need to buy your own Thermal pasting and apply it to the CPU before use" in any disclaimers or terms and conditions etc? I know I am sounding like a very difficult person but I just feel that this is not value for money.
