I had my Y740 with RTX 2060 for a week and after having done some undervolting to address CPU throttling, now after hours of gaming the temperature of the CPU never exceed 82c and 72c for the GPU.
I noticed that after the first 10/15min of gaming the upper left area of the laptop gets very hot, the WASD keys are getting so hot that they became uncomfortable to touch...
This is just my problem or is common to all y740?

Yesterday I did some more testing.
After one hour of gaming (CPU temp 83c and GPU temp 72c) the area to the left of the power button was at 42c and the WASD buttons were at 34/36c.
I guess that the temperature is normal keeping in consideration that the case is aluminum and that under that area lies the CPU.
