thermal throttling cpu because of gpu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a Dell G7 7588 gtx 1060 model
I bought it for gaming but it keeps overheating, I searched online and have tried everything from downvolting,throttlestoop i even got the thermal paste reapplied but the laptop still hasnt stopped overheating and hence thermal throttling

The overheating only occurs while I game, when i stress test my cpu individually , it never overheats.
while i am gaming however  , even though the cpu is at 40% usage max, it starts to overheat , the gpu still stays cool at 78 degrees max. 
What do I do?

There is nothing you can do. its the poor thermal design from Dell thats at fault. Welcome to the laptop world of throttling.
