    1) repaste the cpu & gpu using a good thermal paste like arctic mx-4. (acer service centre will do it)

    2) use the program Throttlestop to undervolt the cpu and cap the turbo frequency.

    if you have never heard about Throttlestop then please do google search and research the topic. see utube videos etc ...
