I have decided to undervolt my predator since I am reaching very high temperatures while gaming even after having my cpu repasted. Before the repaste, I was reaching temps. up to 99 Celsius and I would stay in between 90 and 99 with games such as Sea of Thieves. I'd still go up to 97 after the repaste and it was still bad because at 97 I beginning to lose performance because of the temperature.
Anyways I have the PH315-51 model, i7-8750H, GTX 1060 6 gb.
I undervolted using the Intel Extreme Tunning Tool. I started out with a -0.120 mV on the cpu and the cpu cache. But I was still getting high temperatures and it was stable so I pushed it down to -0.140 mV. At this point it was alright, I was getting between 75 and 85, sometimes spike up to 95 Celsius (playing "Sea of Thieves" if you do not know this is a cpu intensive video game). I decided to go further and I went to -0.160 mV, I got a blue screen within the first 10 minutes of playing so I reverted the changes and went to -0.145 mV (this is still cpu and cpu cache, I did not change anything else). At -0.145 mV I played Sea of Thieves for about 3 hours straight, temperatures were good, I did not go over 90, I stayed in the 75-80 Celsius range most of the time, it would go up to 85 and I had one spike to 90 but that was for a couple of seconds. Anyways I finish playing my game, and after about 30 minutes of practically doing nothing on my computer, I get a sudden a blue screen. I do not know what to make out of this, I am pretty sure it was due to the undervolting but how can I get that blue screen when am not doing anything and I didn't get it when my processor was actually working? I am not sure what to do here, I was thinking about using -0.140 mV and see how that goes, but if anyone has any additional information or insight, I really appreciate it. Thank You.
