    @rudyhill as this is not normal my suggestion is contact acer support (if still on warranty) explain them the issue and ask them for a repaste or a possible repair/replacement im pretty sure the issue its the thermal paste  as your gpu temps are pretty normal normal and the fans also seems to be working properly if you are out of warranty you can repaste it yourself i recommend kryonaut

    You have a bad a bad repaste there you have to re-do everything again too much paste its bad and too less its also bad it has to be the exact amount just spread a really thin layer on both diodes by the way which paste are you using and regarding the charger its normal when you unplug it it will go to battery saving mode automatically reducing the performance by 50% because the battery cannot provide enough power for full performance neither the adapter alone itself for full performance you need both working at the same time that is the main purpose of the battery to aid the adapter
