    Hi ! I just bought my Razer Blade 15 (2020 model) i7-10750H with a rtx 2060, I was running warzone on it today and I got extremely high temps (CPU- up to 98 degrees , GPU - up to 87 degrees) , and as you know undervolting isn't possible on the 10th gen , can you recommend me some other ways(other than a cooling pad) to reduce these crazy temps, the laptop is gorgeous and i love it but this is really bothering me.

    You could try to use balanced-mode with custom fan control to have the fans running up faster without increasing the TDP, essentially sacrificing a little bit of performance in exchange for much lower temperatures.

    Believe me I tried this, I got the results I had initially mentioned first , I really really hope Razer allows undervolting in the next update as this is very frustrating as I have put a lot of money into this laptop.

    Sorry to hear that, unfortunately there’re no “cool” cpu on this thin light categories, so reduce the power would be the wise option if you can’t get access to Undervolting like using throttlestop if it can lower the boost frequency, or maybe even disable it. Intel still using 14nm chips for like 4 years and adding more frequency and cores on their new models, this resulting hotter cpu temperature, especially on this thin light category laptops. Undervolting might help but not huge, especially nowadays titles like warzone and BfV that use also CPU intensively, if you want max performance repasting with better thermal paste, cooling pad, and hoping undervolting capability is being unlocked are the best thing to do. Other thing to note, there’s power limitation that every manufacturer adopt for handling this intel CPUs so once it strikes some high temperature the frequency will go lower resulting lower temperature, the max temperature might hit high temperatures but I’d also take a look on average, maybe it was only a seconds spiked temperature and average might be way lower. I think if I take a look max temperature on HWinfo64 sensor it’ll be similar but if average on 80ish it should be fine, however max gpu temperature on 87 is a bit high on my preferred temperature since it should be lower due bigger chip die (usually my 1070maxq max at low 80ish), probably since they share heatsink with cpu.
    I put also a lot money on this laptop 2K European bucks plus this and that like SSD upgrade etc you’re right to have concerns about the thermals.

    I FOUND THE SOLUTION !! you just have to keep the laptop at an angle so there is proper ventilation...yes i know that was stupid, after i did that my temps dropped and average around 74 degrees cpu and gpu...so relieved this worked:smile_:

    I've picked up a few of the programs that you've mentioned in other threads to undervolt-- today on witcher 3 I was hitting 94/95 maxes according to Intel ETU, how to I make sure the programs are tuned properly to keep the temps lower on max?

    There’s unfortunately no max performance that you can gain on mobile device without sacrificing thermal, intel cpu is designed to runs hot up to 100 degrees but personally I prefer runs on 80ish for make longer lifespan from parts inside that could be shorter due heat. Try to use throttlestop to limit the boost clock lower for example my 8750H (8th gen CPU) runs at max boost 3,9 (39) I low it to 36 (3,6) on boost clock amplifier setting on throttlestop (not sure if 10th gen can do this since there’s i heard plundervolt that lock cpu moding like undervolting), the FPS difference isn’t huge or maybe isn’t noticeable but temperature improvement yes. If you can’t do that disable turbo boost reduce cpu temperature a lot but maybe on some titles or workload that is CPU intensive there’s noticeable performance drop (on Witcher some FPS loose compared to max boost but it’s still smooth enough over 60fps).
    Check also average temperature if you’re running on max frequency boost the cpu might boost to higher temperatures but maybe only for seconds, HWINFO64 Sensor will catch it but you ca. see also the average while running the game. I usually run afterburner on screen display sensor to have my eyes on gaming cpu/gpu temperature, usage and frequency.

    Cooler Fan doesn't really gives you much cooling even if you used expensive ones. Try reducing your cpu power or you can try to build custom cooling pad using glass pipe and make ice water from your fridge flow through it.

    @Joikansai, looks like limiting the turbo was the last bit to keep it ~80. I have a flat perforated stand, but ordered something to give it the angle. That feels a great balance between solid gaming performance and device longevity.

    @kennethyha I already struggle with arts and crafts, but I would love to see a picture of that setup lol.
