    I've just started playing games on my Blade 15 (Mercury White, RTX 2060, 144MHz) and I've noticed that the i7-8750H has super high thermals both during idle and definitely during gaming. At idle it's anywhere from 50-55 and during most games, it hits the TJ Max at 100. I've had several gaming laptops before but none of them ever hit their thermal maximums.

    I'm really concerned as this is way too hot for playing games. Games I've played to test these thermals include:

    - Anno 2070
    - realMyst Masterpiece Edition
    - Bioshock Infinite
    - Batman Arkham Origins

    These are older titles and, while the framerates are beyond stellar, the CPU is blazing a hole through my laptop.

    Can I get assistance on what to do?

    PS - yes, I have a laptop cooling pad and it isn't helping. I've also utilized the ThrottleStop software and unless I'm deselecting Turbo Boost I still get super high temps. Currently, I have my CPU Cache set to -125 and my CPU Core set to -250. Speed Shift EPP is at 128 and BD PROCHOT enabled.

    What are your ambient temperatures?

    They're right around 72 F.

    Damn imperial system :D

    anyway sounds like the cooling isnt okay in your unit. THe ambient temps in Blades are fairly warm. But constant 100c even without turbo boosting is pointing at an issue though. I have all cores locked at 3.4ghz, undervolted 125mv and in a 22c room my temps wouldnt cross the 85c range with Fans running at 4800rpm (custom profile).

    What program do you use for your custom fan profiles?

    Just synapse that came with the laptop. I created 2 profiles. 1 normal with no fan settings touched and 1 gaming with a static fanspeed of 4800rpm.then i attached the games to it which i want to run with the selected fanspeed enabled.

    For reference, I have the same model as you. With the laptop flat on a table in a 73F room, the hottest sustained temperature I can get the CPU to is around 92c. That's with maximum synthetic load (CPU pushing 45w, GPU pushing 90W, and fans on maximum).

    Do you have anything blocking airflow?

    Are you seeing a temporary spike to 100c (but then the fan ramps up and temperatures drop)? Or is it sustained 100c?
