    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Laptop CPU Thermal throttling issue

    Just a side note from what you have said here i do not think windows is configured properly. If you were to keep it i would be recommending a full fresh install and configuration of windows.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Laptop CPU Thermal throttling issue

    If you are able i would definitely consider returning it and getting something along the lines of what @Scott has suggested (although like you did previously i would recommend the MX-4 thermal compound). Out of interest do you have Control Center installed and configured?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Steam deck

    It does sound like a pretty good bit of kit. I've said before the main thing i would probably use it for is emulation. Its emulation support looks absolutely insane. What sort of games are you playing on it? Do you find the majority just work or do you spend ages messing about with them to get...

    That Intel CPU does run hot. In terms of weather you should be worried or not would depend on more testing. If you want more advice start a new thread and people will help you test your thermals. P.S sorry for the mega late response.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Real Users' Benchmarks - Rank of PCS Laptops

    @PoneyKlub Looking at the difference between you and the similarly specced defiance your GPU and CPU appear to be running at a lower clock rate. You could push more performance by setting your fan profile to Max Fans in Control Center, unlocking your dynamic boost and setting your TGP to the max.

    No mate if you did have the ability to switch to dGPU it would be there. Unfortunately you just have Optimus on its own.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Laptop not allowing me to access the Nvidia Display/resolution settings only 3d settings

    Out of interest have you booted into BIOS to checked whether you can switch between Discrete and MSHybrid graphics modes? No-one is salty here its just good old fashioned debate and discussion.
