Let me quickly put these out there; I have the Acer Aspire V15 Nitro VN7-592G (Black Edition) and I know close to nothing about computer parts.
What I do know is that my computer is overheating way too much whenever I play games. (Ex; Stellaris). Using OpenHardwareMonitor, a, obviously, hardware monitor, I've found that my CPU temperatures are getting very high. The highest I've seen is 98 Celsius and I have no idea what to do. My game just keeps lagging due to the throttling of the laptop. I've tried to lower my maximum processing state to 80% (on battery and charge) in hopes of decreasing the temperature, but nothing happened. The average temperature remains the same 95 C. I've attached two screenshots from the hardware monitor I was using that were taken during me playing a game. Please do help.
