Hey guys, so my cpu is a i7 4720HQ laptop cpu. over the last 2-3 days i haven't been able to play even games like Age of Empires 3, and bully because my cpu gets up to about 95 degrees very quickly (about 5 mins).
the current frequency is at 3.6 GHz, while just on facebook etc is that normal? As the stock frequency is 2.6 GHz. I haven't seen much thermal throttling in terms of fps, i'm playing bf4 at 80-100fps which is usual, and fallout 4 at 60.
I cleaned my fans out yesterday to try and fix the issue, but to no avail. so I was hoping someone here could help me? possibly the thermal paste needs replacing? but would the effects of that happen over night almost? My drivers are all up to date, don;t think that would make much difference but hey.
when i bought the laptop i got extra copper heatsinks etc installed so that it would be even cooler and was able to run bf4 etc at about 75 degrees on ultra so i'm unsure why the sudden increase, my gpu temps are still fine.
TL;DR : cpu temps all of a sudden rising to 95 degrees after 5 mins of low end gaming, not sure why, fans cleaned etc GPU temps still good.
Thanks in advance
