Serious Overheating Issues

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I'm running on a ATI Radeon HD 5650 (hella ****ty I know) and on idle it sits at about 65 degrees celcius, while my CPU (i-7 720QM) sits at roughly the same temperature. While gaming it moves up to around 82 degrees and I begin getting serious FPS spikes.

I have absolutely no idea what caused this, how long it has been like this, or how to possibly fix it. I feel that the heat is causing spikes while I play low quality games on the lowest of settings (for example league of legends). I've even gone as far as playing in windowed mode and reduced the resolution from 1600x900 to 1024xsomething, yet it still spikes.

If anyone has any suggestions on what I should check/do to solve this issue I would really appreciate it.

note: I have NOT overclocked my GPU OR CPU

A lot of times, laptops end up choking on their own dust. I actually had to open my XPS M1710 up entirely to clear out the dust that was clogging the heatsink inside of the casing. There was no sign of dust on the outside, but when I opened it up, there was a wall of dust blocking the fan from the exhaust.

How long have you owned the laptop?

Well, I sure am stupid huh.... no I did not check for dust frown.gif
Had it for almost a year now

edit: Jesus christ am I dumb. So yeah, didn't have a screwdriver on me so I couldn't open the case, and don't have compressed air. So I decide to just blow into the fan, and of course that drops the temperature by 15 degrees alone. I hope you all get a laugh out of this, I sure as hell am not proud.
