Razer Blade 14 7700 always idling in the 60s° C

  1. Hello everyone,

    one week ago I got the chance to buy the 14 Blade 7700 with the 4K Display for a special price, thanks to black friday.
    I have the problem that when surfing with firefox, browsing or watching YouTube videos the machine goes hot very quickly, in the 60s° C, so that the fans start to spin every 1-2 minutes, again and again.

    I remember not having this problem, before I installed all the apps I want/have to use for working with this laptop. I already undervolted the system and set the clock frequency to 2700Mhz. But still it's idling in the 60s° C.

    Are there any known apps or issues in general, which could cause this problem?

    Edit: Even posting this thread is getting the fans to spin...

    Thanks in advance!

    Did you already finish all the update like windows, drivers, bios/firmware (if there’s any update) etc? Fans Kick in may have something to do with that, background activities. How about max load temperatures?
    I don’t have Blade 14 2017 anymore but I remember at first months owning it had similar Fans behavior. I remember only in 14 months owning it, on idle it’s dead silent with randomly but not often fans kicking in that only noticeable in silent environment. Load max Fans may annoying but temperature stay max on 80ish which is in tolerable area.
  3. I did a clean and fresh install, only using the newest drivers and Bios Firmware. On load in Games the cpu hits 86 Celsius and the GPU is in the lower 80s. So Nothing special here.

    On idle I always have 5% usage on cpu by the system process.

    In my perspective that’s great temperatures for the device, similar with mine was on gpu usage
    , I remember now that I set on that model to 99% maximum power state on advanced power options both plugged in and on battery in order to get better temperatures and battery life beside undervolting.
  5. I already disabled turbo boost, concerning the 99% maximum Power state.

    So it should be fine, I think on my new Blade 15 8750H even mostly on 40 to 50ish degrees on idle sometimes may spike to 60ish, and at first week having it it was also similar with my previous Blade 14 always kicking often on idle without doing anything, now I rarely notice it or maybe just don’t put attention anymore. If you uncomfortable with that you can rise supports ticket and proved them with details like video etc for most objective solution.
  7. Letting it idle over night it CAN reach 55-57° Celsius.

    But now again - without any tasks running - it's idling between 63-65° Celsius, which shouldn't ne normal.
    Even simply opening one tab in Firefox gets the fans to kick in...
    One thing that bothers me as well is the power consumption between 12-15 Watts on IDLE!

    Rubino, from windows central was sharing his experience in this forum with FHD though since it’s his favorite resolution and write the review, comparing with late 2016, he mentioned somewhere I remember, lower cpu temperature than late 2016 isn’t needed as long as it stays quiet and more battery effective (late 2016 fans is louder and more aggressive than effects the battery).
    You can’t expect under 10Watt with 4K display, Blade 15 with bigger screen size also consume around 12 Watt when screen refresh set to 144Hz, with dozens tweak I can manage to achieve under 10 Watt.
