I recently purchased a Helios 300 from the recertified store on ebay. Aside from a crash brought on by outdated SSD firmware I have not had any interruptions in use. I am, however, battling with the heat generated by the cpu, the i7 8750H. Before undervolting to -.150V core offset with XTU (experimented some with a range between -.115 and .160 before settling) and turning on Coolboost I was hitting spikes of 97 degrees C. After, I am still running highs up to 91 degrees. I idle at about 40-41 with 0-2 percent usage according to PredatorSense. I am new to gaming laptops, so I have a few questions. Are these temperatures more or less normal while running a game like Star Wars: The Old Republic? Do I need a repaste? If I sent my laptop in with a tube of Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, would the techs at Acer repaste my CPU/GPU for me? I have made efforts to contact Acer via email with no response. What's the best way to reach them?
If I'm reading my PN right from the Acer Care screen it's 830093BC3400. My laptop has the i7 8750H, GTX 1060 6gb, 16gb of Kingston 2666mhz ram, and Intel 760P M.2 256gb SSD. I have installed little in the way of software, but I am running the Steam and Epic Games clients as well as the premium trial of Malwarebytes. I've had the laptop for about 4 days, but I would like to get these questions and any potential issues sorted out before my 90 day warranty period is up. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
