Thermal Throttling


Hi, I hope this is the right thread

I don't know why My laptop Runs Very Hot (Idle 80゜), I Tried Full Cleaning My laptop and Repasting with new Thermal Paste, but it seems doesn't help, I Checked if there is Something Wrong with my heatsink/fan but all of them is working, Any Idea ?

Here's my info

CPU: Intel Core i7-10510u
Ram : 8GB DDR4 2666Mhz
Motherboard: Asus (Laptop)
GPU: Nvidia MX350
Laptop Model: Asus A412FA
OS Build / Version : Windows 11 22000.258

Presuming that your re-pasting was done properly, that the paste used was high-quality and that the ducts for the blower(s) were properly cleared (right?), this still leaves two possibilities,

  1. You have your laptop configured to overclock and/or run at maximum performance instead of balanced performance.
  2. There is a configuration issue in the BIOS-managed, ACPI cooling tables and the blower is not being engaged soon enough or the level of engagement is insufficient for the temperatures rise occurring.

This should give you a list of the things you need to look at,
