Hello,

I have acer nitro 5 AN515-52

The problem I am facing is that my intel i5 8300h is hitting temperature 

above 90°C when I play games while laptop is plugged in.

I have tried to under volt it with core offset voltage -0.175V but still getting 85°

is there is a way to lower  temperature.

why it is getting too hot and how can I fix it

Do not undervolt.  that is not the answer and is a security risk.

Make sure you have adequate ventilation, and that your heatsink is clear of debris.

Other than that, get a laptop that properly built.  Just my opinion.
