Well I have played a few hours of gaming and my temps were 75-86. 86 was the max temp. This is without any coolers but being careful with my laptop positioning. While my knee fry’s, it is much cooler than it being on a table and I would assume on a table my temps could possibly be higher.Of course, you can rebuke that with the whole ‘it’s a laptop’ argument, but this is clearly a gaming laptop. Not that concept makes a whole lot of sense to some.
