  1. Not sure if this is the right Forum... Do tell if I'm wrong.

    Currently have a Blade 14 2017 with the usual specs.
    When playing AC Origins I'm maxing out at 81 Celsius constant. Is this bad for my laptop or will it simply cause the usual heat-based damage that happens over years?

    Thanks.

    AC Origins is terribly optimized and runs quite the same as any ubisoft game, gonna heat up bad. That seems quite hot though....
     
  3. Is it any bit dangerous?

    Max CPU temp at 81? It’s pretty normal, the game is also known as CPU hunger. Just play on high power setting on synapse and make a room for bottom Fans output and you’re okay. I’ll get this game also after finishing Destiny 2.
     
  5. I've got your average laptop stand and it doesn't exactly have holes for the fans, is that an issue?
    Also what is the difference between Synapse high and Synapse auto?

    I've used a number of different laptop coolers I've found none really make a difference compared to what I use now. Which is just stack of pennies tapped together with some electric tap set under the back corners of my laptop. Which did the same as any $40 laptop cooler I tried.

    Make sure there's a good gap between any surface and your laptops bottom. The blades are super thin and low profile leaving horrible air flow for cooling.

    To make better airflow I’m only using this. Make sure that the bottom area isn’t closed like gaming on bed or sofa while the GPU and CPU Fans active.
    Auto power setting lets the system detect between low and high Fans behavior on certain task, on idle and light tasks the Fan would be dead silent, only when background task run it will kick shortly, on demanding task it would kick on high. High setting keep the Fan active even on normal usage. I would recommend for gaming, high setting to keep the motherboard temperature lower.
    CPU demanding games like unpotimized PUBG and new Assassin Creed (but I hear it’s already fixed) will make the CPU Fan run louder than usual (I would recommend earphones, especially PUBG, to hear clearer enemies footages.

    That lazy couch thing is actually pretty nice - I will get that as well.

    When I lift my razer blade with a book or something I can easily see around 3C difference while stress testing but more importantly fan also seem to spin at one level slower and makes the noise more bearable while not using headphones.

    But to OP - have you tried undervolting? That would be the first thing I would do for thermals. If your CPU is Kaby Lake (2017 model) then I would start at -100mV and see where that gets you.

    Safe Temps for gaming laptop idle and while gaming: should sit around 40-50 doing average browsing with a cheap cooling pad and cooler boost. Laptop GPUs are fine up to 60-70C and CPU can handle 100C
     
  10. I've been undervolting -135 and that's been working out great. Turns out my undervolt wasn't saving whenever I closed the lid of the laptop, now that I manually set it each times, temps never go above 80C which seems good.

    That -135mV should be good.

    Were you using Intel XTU or ThrottleStop? I found ThrottleStop to be more trustworthy in applying the undervolting...

    Above around 88C, CPU would throttle (Blade 7700, and ultrabook with low voltage CPU (U) and dGPU like mx150 will start at around 81 which reduces gaming performance. Undervolting would be necessary if the CPU reach those temperature and even it could handle 100C, for me it isn’t save temperature.
     
  13. I'm using XTU, but it's fine for me.

    Without UV it was actually hitting upwards of 93C on heaviest possible load so that's a bit concerning for me.

    A little late to this thread, but I use this and can actually game on my lap without feeling any heat. They make one with a mousepad too, but I haven't tried. I set the outer edges of the desk on the inside edges of my thighs, so the laptop is actually suspended above the holes with the bottom technically floating (if that makes sense). Best airflow I've found for gaming by far.

    My Razer Blade CPU used to idle around 40-44c when just doing light browsing.

    Ever since I changed the SSD to a bigger capacity and did a fresh install of windows 10 (did not clone) my idle temps are abt 10c higher.

    Same temps on load. I was wondering if Razer had some fan profile that helped keep the idle temps a tad cooler that is now missing since I did a completely fresh install of Windows 10

    All other fan settings are same in Synapse / power manager etc. Load temps are also the same as before, its only hotter on idle so im sure its not that my fans need a clean or something (i did clean out some dust from the fans when I opened the blade to swap SSD anyway)

    Only other thing I can think of is I was on an older version of Windows 10 before and its currently on the 1709 version. Ive read about people getting increased temps on the Fall Creators Update.
