Acer XV 15 heating issue

zzyzx0788 Member Posts: 2

I just got my Acer XV 15 laptop and while everything seems to be running pretty well, I've noticed that the laptop heats up pretty badly towards the back while I'm playing games.


Does anyone know of any fixes for this?

    It's normal to get high temps while playing games, however, you need to keep checking the temps with a monitoring tool like HWmonitor or similar utility. The CPU will shut down the laptop if it goes beyond the accepted level but if it rises above 85°C-90°, you need to take action to bring it down.

    Ya, Id like to chime in here.  My new Acer with the i7 7700 hq is hitting temps of 95c when playing games like Overwatch...  This doesn't seem tenable in the long term.

    Cooling pad won't help when the fault is in the thermal paste.
    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    Undervolt your CPU and cache voltage offset by -100mV.
