    P03-600 - CPU temp also hits 70-80c while idling or light internet browsing.

    Put watercooling on your P03-600, which should fix your 90C - 92C temps. Its allot easier to cool a desktop than a laptop, look up your appropriate Socket 1151 CPU for watercooling and take it from there e.g. coolermaster, corsair, Enermax, Deepcool etc it all  depends on your budget?

    I can use any budget. Will ading watercooling void my warranty though? On a side note, is Corsair good? I have other Corsair products and have been happy with them. the iCue software seems easy to use, as well.

    The change in the cooling system violates the hardware warranty.

    OK, so I updated Predator Sense. CPU runs around 80c when gaming - is this acceptable? If so, I'll wait and add water cooling when warranty expires and I upgrade GPU + RAM and PSU.

    Let me know your thoughts with this.

    They were originally. Acer support wasn't much help but Twitter support from Acer had me update Predator Sense, now its hitting 80-85c max gaming.

    I consider this temperature high. Can you check your desktop model at the acer care center?

    Sure. Its P03-600. It is the version with the RTX 2070, i7 9700K for reference.

    Also hitting 68-72c idle / browsing web (only windows open are FireFox and Predator Sense).  I do have a ton of background processes etc running too, which seems strange / high.

    Temps have always been this high - but I didn't know it was a concern until someone I play with told me.

    How do I check BIOS version?
  • egydiocoelhoegydiocoelho ACE Posts: 39,454 Trailblazer
    You can check in the acer care center. Have you tried to repast?

    So it says it is the up to date BIOS version, checked in Care Center and then checked again on the Acer page where I can grab the downloads if needed. Here's another theory..

    Is the CPU fan on the rear or the left side (if facing front of desktop) ? If so, I have a wall against it (2in clearance, maybe) on the left side and on the rear. This might be preventing proper airflow... it is a lot of work if I need to move it, but would this make much of a difference? CPU is 70c right now browsing Firefox, I have PredatorSense, Battle.NET, iCue, Discord, Nvidia GeForce and Care Center open.

    Thank you again for all of your help so far.

    AtlCanadian you can try to undervolt it and see how it goes but you probably need to repaste it with kryonaut or similar also if youre overclocking you cpu consider watercooling as it was already mentioned normal cooling fans wont work the cpu fan its on the cpu socket itself you can try to add more case fans but as i said if youre overclocking it will be useless and overclockable cpu would need watercooling to lower the temps down  (especially the intel cpus) i suggest that you take a look at custom builds and prob corsair watercooling solutions

    Thank you for this. Re-paste would void warranty, right? Would adding case fans void warranty as well?

    I'm trying to find a solution that doesn't void warranty. GPU temp is max 60c when gaming, which is perfect - just need to find a way to keep CPU down.

    My desktop is also in a corner, when facing it - left side and back side is against wall (1in-2in max clearance) would this choke the air flow from CPU cooler / vent?
