This laptop has been screaming at me a lot recently. I swear I already changed the thermal paste and cleaned the heatsink just a year ago

@Normandy
What thermal paste are you using? Also, if you have a dedicated GPU, did you paste that also? On my PCs (laptops and desktops), i use Arctic MX4.

@The_Mechanarchist I used Arctic MX4 as well. This laptop uses an iGPU so I only pasted one thing

@The_Mechanarchist I may just repaste again, but I'll need to wait for my paycheck for that.

@Normandy
You may want to add some additional air vents. You can always use some software or UEFI settings to limit stuff, maybe do some undervolting.

@Normandy
If intel, there is software called Throttlestop as well as Intels own performance software.
