Is it ok to play games on predator using battery only? i noticed that the cpu temp is lower and also what wiil happen if the cpu temp reach 90deg or higher for 10 to 15mins?

    I wouldn't recommend it all the time , you will rinse the battery and massively reduce the effective lifetime of it.

    The reason it's cooler is it's throttleing the components, you can achieve the same effect by limiting the frame rate in games pretty much, I think there is an option in the gforce experience app

    As for the temps, no problem. Most mobile chips are good upto around 100, so it's fine it runs like that. Take for example the last Mac pros that were released, they used to run above 90 all the time!

    Thanks. Also is it really effective using this thermal paste, i mean aftermarket thermal paste?

    True but if its an i7 processor you are using you should expect that kinda temps but replacing the thermal paste might do the trick....

    I don't recommend playing games on battery power as it drains the battery's life a lot, and you can always prevent the processor from overclocking too helps a lot, if you need to know how lemme know...

    Hi @ TotoMark79,

    yes it's fine to play while plugged in and the battery fully charged.

    You can disable Turbo boost for your CPU to get very similar temps as on battery but while plugged in.
    Obviously you'll lose some performance in the CPU but your GPU won't throttle giving you better graphical performance from the GPU and remaining ice cool.

    P.S. These systems are designed by Intel to run to thermal throttle (92-95 C) without issue or risk of failure. Only negative is fan noise. 

    Don't stress temps just enjoy. If your laptop gets too hot (safety wise) your laptop is designed to auto shut down to protect the hardware. 👌
