ip320 overheating while gaming

2020-06-30, 16:30 PM

i have a lenovo ideapad 320  , i got it for almost  2 years now , recently while playing games i noticed that my gbu runs over 90 c , almost 94 c causing performance issues , so i did the standard procedure , checked my fan and i found it not working so i replaced it with a new one , ok it works now right so the heat should go down , it actually didn't , stil same over heating issue , so i reapplied thermal paste , heat went roughly 4 degrees down and the performance improved but it still goes over 90c for gbu and 85 for cbu while gaming , also tried updating all drivers , updating bios , changed my power options , nothing worked , i honstely have been trying to fix this for a month now and i almost given up ,

Thermals: i've decided to get and IETS laptop cooler along with the latest opolar vaccum cooler, and i've also drilled 2 holes and put on a mesh to further decrease thermal throttling, it went from: Idle temp: min 50°c to 28°c Gaming temp: 70°c to 48°c If you want any advice in drilling (pretty easy) i only also recommend this if your warranty is over.
