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

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.

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.

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