  1. Hi everybody! Last week I bought a new razer blade 2017 with the ips 1080 screen and 1060 vga and absolutely love it. It is sleek, light and powerful for work and gaming.

    I have one concern and I'm not sure if I received a lemon or if this is normal behaviour: while gaming on certain titles (Witcher 3) for an hour the cpu temps are reaching the high 90s, two cores read a high of 99! This is on a flat surface with no fan obstruction on a room with normal temperatures (65-70 F). The vga never goes past 80-85 so it seems to be cpu related. It also only seems to happens on 'demanding titles' such as the witcher 3.

    Is this normal for many of you on this game or should I exchange it? Thank you

    I've received a response from customer support and they assure that such temperatures for graphic intensive programs are within the norm if the computer is not freezing up or shutting down. Considering that after undervolting and adjusting the performance options the temperatures do not exceed 90 I'm just going to keep the unit as it's a fantastic laptop.

    That shouldn't be normal. I would contact support about that and possibly get an RMA. If you look through the main razer blade 2017 thread, I dont recall seeing anybody having that high of cpu temps. Most people were stating their cpus were in the 80's during intense gaming sessions.

    Have you tried changing the CPU usage % in the power profile settings to 99%?

    This setting seemed to help some people with the late 2016 1060.
  4. Thanks for the quick replies, I've contacted support and waiting for a response. I've set the power settings to 99% and also undervolted the cpu after reading all the success stories and now the max temps are 85-90 so a lot more acceptable, still I'm not sure this is a proper fix if there's something actually wrong with the hardware. Here's a picture of the max temps before the undervolt/power settings fix after running the witcher 3 for an hour:
