hello, I don't know if this is the right forum.

one day i wake up to play valorant games on my gaming laptop

specs: i7-7700hq

           gtx 1050ti

           16gb ram

 

i opened valorant and my fps is dropping suddenly, i went and checked the temps and noticed that my cpu's temp is 98-100, it was definitely throttling, i was surprised because this doesn't happen unless i have my "extreme cooling" option off, my laptop has extreme cooling option where it runs the fans at a high speed to keep it cool while gaming. Moreover, i go and try to find the solution, so after 5 hours i figure out that it was a bios update that i did the night before, the bios update was causing this problem! after i did a flashback my cpu temps got back to normal.

 

MY QUESTION IS, DID WHAT HAPPED AFFECT MY CPU LIFE SPAN OR AFFECT IT NEGATIVLY?? SINCE I ONLY HAD IT FOR HOURS AND THROUGHOUT THESE HOURS I WOULD RESTART THE LAPTOP SEVERAL TIMES TO TRY MY FIXES, DO SHORT TERM HIGH TEMPS AFFECT THE CPU OR ONLY LONG TERM ONES??

 

MY LAPTOP'S NAME IS: LENOVO Y520

I have replied.

I'm going to guess and say that the BIOS had a weird fan curve thing going on, and that the update fixed it.

It's probably fine. The cpu should shutdown if it reaches 100c to prevent damage.

A friend of mine had accidentally installed his cooler wrong and it wasnt making proper contact with his cpu.. so his average temps were 90-100. He had those temps for months... 3 years later his cpu is still alive somehow (I7-4790K)

It'll be ok, some laptop manufacturers don't even bother with cooling and let cpus run at 100C under load as a design.

Whenever I update a BIOS (at least on a desktop, haven't had an issue with an HP laptop BIOS update), it normally resets the BIOS to default configurations and you are unable to use the previous saved BIOS profile due to it being on a older revision. Was it even possible you just needed to clear CMOS on the newer revision?

i actually searched and found that many had the same issue as me..... some even provided the old bios update to fix it

If other users are reporting this issue, then it can be an issue the manufacturer has to fix and remove the update from the public.

No, it won't at all if it was at that those temperatures for a couple of hours. By the time that would affect the CPU (a marginally low chance of any problems), you would already be on a newer laptop. The electrical engineers that put a T junction of 100 C for that CPU did that for a reason and there are many other protections built in to reduce clock speeds (thermal throttle) and also shut down the system to prevent it from running until the temperature issue is resolved.

I found this on the Lenovo website someone answered a person who was asking should he update his bios on the Lenovo y520.

Yeah that seems to be buggy BIOS revisions Lenovo is pushing out...
