Alright just going to give a quick backstory quickly. I bought the hp pavilion gaming laptop a year ago. Since I've bought it, it's been having thermal complications. While gaming the cpu will almost instantaneously jump up in the mid 90s. I'm referring to celsius. The gpu will predominantly hover from 88-92 degrees celcius with an absolute peak of 93. I've seen and read everyone else seems to have the same problem as me. Keep in mind I'm using most recent bios update, cooling fan, optimal ambient room temperatures for a gaming laptop, keeping it on a flat surface. I'm doing all the precautionary measures one would take to decrease temperature without decreasing processing state or undervolting or thermal pasting. I paid for my laptop with intent to use its rightful performance without downgrading it. The point of this post is I'm just wondering if hp is just creating laptops built to fail or can it genuinely handle it? Also when it's doing the bios update the fan is running at full speeds only in that instance. Why don't they do a bios update where the fans run at that capacity when under full load. Very simple tweaks could make a huge difference. I can't play any game without feeling good guilty of how hot it is. I just want to know if I should be worrying about it or can i just use it without worrying about damaging the components? Also, do you think hp would ever do a bios fan speed update like that? I've read plenty of other complaints and suggestions related to a bios fan related update? I doubt it will happen assuming this laptop is probably the last thing on their mind. Worth a shot though.
