edited March 26 in Nitro and Aspire Gaming
I have Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52, the temperatures are reaching 97 C on the CPU and around 90-95 C on GPU, CPU throttles down to around 2000 MHz and GPU throttles too, makes games unplayable. I have tried replacing the thermal paste twice, using both Arctic MX-4 and Kryonaut, none have helped. I have tried undervolting using both ThrottleStop and Intel XTU. I have also called for the warranty service and got my cooling system replaced completely, still nothing(The temperatures did drop to 80 C but returned to usual in 4-5 days). All my drivers are up to date, I have tried installing older versions of the drivers but no luck. What should I do now?

    I do have it but not on the back of the laptop. The guy from Acer who replaced the cooling system peeled it off and told me to keep it elsewhere.

    Can you repaste it is permanent solution for temperature and very effective?
