Re: Y520 GPU overheating issue

Hi MohamedMaher!


Welcome to the community forums.


I did a quick research about the safe temperature of the laptop while in gaming and anything below 90 C is still acceptable if you're playing games but it still depends on your ambient temperature. If you're in a cold room and the laptop is still reaching 80-90 C it's not normal anymore. In regards the frame rate going always go up and down, make sure that there are no other applications running in the background like Google Chrome while playing games. Kindly check also the Task Manager of the laptop and check the CPU and Memory usage of the laptop.
