So i've been trying to figure out some issues regarding why my idle CPU temps are always at 60-70 degrees and why i am not able to achieve lower temperatures after undervolting with ThrottleStop. My CPU temps under heavy load always stay at 95+ degrees and no amount of fiddling with TS or elevating the back of my notebook for better airflow seem to be working. Any game i play, be it from 2006 or 2019 are lagging when my charger is plugged in but it gets 'somewhat' fixed when am playing on battery. These lag spikes come and go every 10-15 secs and stay for 10 secs during which my FPS drops to below 10. From what i've been led to believe through the posts in this forum is that the lags are because of thermal throttling and the only way to fix that is to undervolt. I've already tried to apply different TS ready files associated with my CPU model from trusted sources but those aren't doing anything for my cpu temp. All i get is a blue screen of death after playing for 10 mins and then i spend more time fixing the voltages which ultimately leads to nothing. Now i am no expert in these things and barely manage to follow up on the suggestions of the people but till now i have succeeded in applying all these fixes that have been suggested to me but to no avail. The only thing that i have yet to do is apply a new thermal paste and revert my gpu drivers to a more stable version(which i am scared to do since i have 0 experience and time on how to follow up on it if things go south).
I've noticed that this notebook has a lot of heatsink like openings at the back. Am not sure if all of those are supposed to work in unison to pump out the hot air but so far from what i've seen only one of these seems to be working:
My fans seem to working just fine as per predator sense:
I am not sure if its supposed to be working this way and i am sorry in advance if that's the case but better safe than sorry. Thing is i am too tired of looking for possible fixes for everything. Even windows 10 is showing some problems but that's for another month.
P.S- i had to fix predator sense because it wasn't opening as well when i decided to post this.
