    Hi,

    I bought this laptop 6 years ago, and i started wondering...
    Can i actually start playing high FPS requried games on it? I've downloaded the Razer Cortex, and it really helps me out! I started up CS:GO with a maximum of 275 FPS.
    Now, i have the game Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege and i have a lot of trouble with the fps going down and up. I can run it on 60 fps ca. but sometimes there's a lag spike. Its really annoying. any help?
    Thank you.

    Oh and,
    To people saying "turn down your graphics" or "get a better pc", i've turned down all graphics in all games and its still giving me lag spikes.
    And "get a better pc", i have considered but its not gonna be right now.

    It sounds like thermal throttling happened, some users said that game is cpu intensive, so look at cpu usage and thermal using software like HWINFO, if it’s, did you also try undervolting the CPU? It helps if you find the best undervolt value for your CPU.

    Hi,

    Sorry, im not that much into it, so you got any links? And can you explain what you mean by "undervolt value for your CPU", and is there any easy way i can do it, or do i have to go into the deep settings? I've read that my i7-4500U can get up to 3GHz. How?
    Thank you.

    I don’t know about your CPU best value, but you can check on web like this video. I’m not at home so i didn’t also check the video.
    Edit: okay I’m on break now, I saw the video, he undervolting value is way to low 0,100 for my 7500U isn’t stable, for U cpu, try starting with -0,50, runs the game or Firestrike benchmarks if it’s okay you can put 0,10 lower, to monitor thermal throttling you can use HWinfo, see your cores temp isn’t high (red). Btw my best value is -0,90.” on above cpu.

    Hi,

    I've set it to -0,50 and my info is yellow (nearly red). The tempature is 60-65 when i start the game up.
    "Thermal Throttling" is on "No"
    Now i can see, when i start up the game it just freezes at the point where it says "Nvidia The Way Its meant To Be Played" Thats so annoying and i have to restart the game.
    The CPU Utilization got to a 100 when i started up my game.
    The Max Core Frequency is about 2.30 - 2.80 GHz. I have watched the video and did as you said.
    Edit: When i start the game the heat goes up to abou 75 degress. Is that fine or too much?
    Edit#2: i set it to -0.060 and runned the stress test. My pc crashed. Im gonna try -0.010

    For laptop the temperature are fine, yes on my 7500U cpu usage goes to 90 when playing games (I’m using egpu), on latest cpu demanding AAA titles like AC Origins, i played once Six Siege for testing on 4K maxed 60fps nothing demanding for my setting (because it was smooth I didn’t check the temperature), maybe if the screen not limited to 60Hz I can go more, well it’s with an expensive gpu. Don’t do stress test like Aida on your old cpu, it’ll of course KO, just do normal gaming or light benchmark like 3Dmark Firestrike, to Test undervolting value, if it’s too lower like on Firestrike the test would be stopped in the middle of benchmarking. Poeple repasting their old cpu and gpu for better thermal, but I don’t see anything wrong on yours, it’s Dell Inspiron right?
