Ashra you talking about your laptop being very hot and that made me wanting to ask you something : do you clean the dust near the processor chipset grid?
Well short story :
About 1 month ago I was playing and suddenly realized that the skin on my fingers was peeling. The keyboard was so damn hot I couldn t support to let my finger on the keyboard almost. At that time I just thought"bah must be caus I'm playing a game it's quiet cpu intensive and now start to be the hot season again".
Recently when raiding 25man I noticed a hudge framerate drop when whole raid was taking damage, and when trying to find a fix on the net, I found a thread talking about processor overheat due to dust concentration. The first time I thought nah not my case, but about 2weeks later I had a thought "and why not". The relation between overheat and slowdown is that recent chipset will throttle down when they reach a critical temperature to prevent blowing on your face.
So I opened the laptop took out the ventilator and you know what? The grid was full of dust. So full that the air could only circulate via a very small hole.
So I cleaned all the dust, restarted my laptop and know what? Was the first time for so long that I heard this laptop so quiet. In fact for months, the laptop was overheating and fan running at full speed just caus of dust accumulation. Now even when I play wow I don't hear the fan. Before cleaning the dust processor was at 71degrees IDLE(meaning just windows desktop showing doing nothing), now it doesn't go over 63degrees in full usage in a middle of a raid.
Well just to say that it s good to give a small cleaning near the processor, you can find some guides on internet on how to do it. Every laptop can have this part opened and cleaned easily.
