    My laptop has recently started overheating. I’ve followed all the Razer tech articles and made sure everything is up to date. I have even re-installed/reset the machine. Fans etc are all running and clear.

    Reading on here some have tried to replace the vapor cooling. Sounds like it could fail. I can’t find any part numbers and it’s almost impossible trying to get hold of Razer.

    If anyone can help me get this $3k laptop back up and running I would appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Hi there sorry to hear that. Do you mean it’s shutting down because the temperature are too high, that’s the term of overheating. Usually If the cpu or gpu runs hot the cpu or gpu frequency would run lower or known as thermal throttle, in this case considering it’s 2020 model if you’re running games often maybe the thermal compound inside are drying out that made the chips aren’t properly cooled, so maybe it’s worth to repasting it with new thermal compound, for your information, 2018 blade 15 i had twice repasted it, 2021 blade 14 once. Hope that will give a clue to solve your issue.

    Same thing happened with me.
    Razer Blade 15 Advanced 2020 getting so hot I cannot touch any surface when gaming.

    Spec:

    OS: Windows 10

    CPU: i7-10875H @ 2.30ghz (not overclocked)

    RAM: 16GB

    GPU: 2080 Super



    When under the CPU reaches 100 degrees C and after an hour or so it gets so hot that I cannot touch it anywhere without burning myself.

    With turbo boost on on blade thin cassis 100 degrees is not avoidable but the frequency would throttle down to lower the temperature and blade cassis is part of cooling system to dissipate the heat so you need to have high fans rpm, not dusted fans and free bottom lid areas for better intake while gaming in order to keep it less hot. 2018 blade 15 advanced and 2021 blade 14 both hot on upper keyboard areas where the heat being outputted, palm rest areas I’d say warm not hot since I can lay my palms down on those areas while gaming. I use balance mode and higher fans rpm in to keep cpu temperature in 80ish and gpu 70ish areas average. For 2 years old gaming laptop you want to check thermal paste if it’s not dried out as well on blade 15 2018 i had twice changed the thermal paste with yearly fans dusting.
