Can someone tell me why my laptop CPU is overheating?

So a few months back I purchased a new laptop- Asus TUF Fx705DT (Ryzen 5 3550H / GTX 1650) and it has been working perfectly fine until a a few weeks ago when I started to notice that my maximum temperatures during gaming sessions were ranging anywhere from 97 TO A WHOPPING 102 DEGREES CELSIUS! I am aware that the max operating temperature of this CPU is a 105 degrees Celsius but still, it has no business whatsoever running that hot. I've had multiple occasions of stuttering as well.


Now keep in mind that I had tried increasing the TDP of the processor to it's maximum capacity which is 35W using Ryzen Controller and AMD uProf but I made sure to RESET the settings and UNINSTALL the apps. I also reset the BIOS to default settings just to be sure and it still didn't work. :(


The games I ran differed in the loads they put on the CPU. Games like Rocket league which was only taking up 30% of CPU usage still saw the same temperature range and at times it was even throttling. Same case with CPU heavy games like Watch Dogs 2.

Additional factors: Tried undervolting GPU with Afterburner, now uninstalled and reset

                              Using secondary monitor

                              Usage sessions vary from 5-6 hours daily (usually on a stretch but with occasional shutdowns in between)

                              Running updated BIOS

                              Keeping the laptop on a flat surface but elevated with wooden planks stuck on the table (sides) for clearance on the bottom (intake)

                              Relatively new laptop, so not much dust present

Any chance you can blow out the fans with some compressed air?

Might have some airflow blockage going on there.

Yeah I've tried that. Still running the same. Might get it check up at a service centre. Thanks anyways
