Razer Blade 16 i9-13950HX overheating under load

What kind of load are you running when it reaches 100C?

It's gonna do that. It's a 13950HX, and it's in a thin laptop. It's gonna get extremely hot under load. It's able to consume up to 157W when turbo-ing.

You bought a thin and light laptop with an i9 in it. What did you expect to happen?

I was recently helping a user with a Razer Blade 16 with the newer i9-14900HX and the same RTX4090. He is struggling to run the CPU much over 60W without the CPU thermal throttling. The cooling really is that bad. 

 

For comparison, a similar Lenovo Legion with a 13900HX  has a cooler that can handle up to 180W. Big difference in maximum performance. If it is not too late, return your Razer and get something else. I think similar Asus laptops are also up in the 150W range. 

 

Razer seems to be using a cooler that is designed for the rated Base Power which is only 55W.

You need to disable Intel Turbo Boost to run one of these HX processors at that low of a power level. You need triple that power for maximum performance. Go run Cinebench R23 and see how you compare to the 35000 points that a Lenovo Legion can score. Ask Razer to explain why the cooler they are using is completely inadequate.
