HP Pavilion gaming Laptop gets way to hot.

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Gaming Laptop with a i5-8300H and 1050 it gets so hot when playing games, I can’t rest my hands on the palm rest unless I want them burned. Also the speaker grill gets so hot I can’t touch it or I will be burned. My warranty is up so I can’t get it repaired.  Also I have done no modifications.

thanks!

What are your CPU/GPU temperatures while gaming and idle?

Are the fans spinning full speed?

Is the laptop clean? (no dust in the fans etc..)

 

i5-8300H goes up to 4.00 ghz, base clock being 2.30 ghz.

What is the cpu speed while gaming and idle?

When idling it says 28% utilization in task manager and the clock speed is at 3.97 GHz and the utilization number changes a lot. It goes from 20 to 80 to 50% and The only program I have open is Task Manager.

When gaming it says 80% utilization in the clock speed is at 2.91 GHz.

also the graphics card is at 96°C

thanks!
