Hi! I recently noticed some performance issues(lower fps) when playing semi-demanding games like CS:GO and Overwatch, even though using pretty much the lowest settings. I proceeded to download CPUID(software to monitor to your hardware) to check my temperatures and noticed that I reach low-to-high 90's(depending on game) when I play.
I figured it could be dust or something inside so I removed the keyboard-part of the laptop and used some canned air to remove all the dust I could reach (without removing the motherboard). I also managed to get hold of a laptop cooling stand. The problem is that none of these efforts really solved the issue. Just a slightly lower temperature on the GPU and pretty much the same on the CPUs. I'm starting to wonder if it could be the thermal paste that have to be replaced? I've had the computer for a little over a year now. Anyone else experiencing similar issues? Help or tips would be appriecated!
