Ensure that your laptop’s processor temperature is at maximum, around the 65C mark & that your GPU operates at under 80C. These can be considered lớn be safe temperatures for these components.

Other performance tweaks to reduce temperatures


Some of the ways of cooling down your máy tính can be done by just tweaking some of the performance settings on your laptop. One of the ways is to lớn reduce the performance of the processor. We’re hardly ever using all of the processor’s performance on our laptops. When we’re just browsing, chatting or listening to lớn music, the processor can be made to run at a slower speed.
