    TUF A17 FA706IU CPU Overheating

    I'm getting 107⁰C while gaming. Max. is 105⁰C on an AMD Ryzen 7 4800H. Not good.

    Wondering what's up the the overheating protection and why system isn't throttling back as it should to help preserve the longevity and viability of the CPU.

    Laptop is on a hard surface and nothing is blocking or impeding airflow. Ambient temp is around 70⁰F.



    So, I had spikes as high as 111 C.--insane!!! I'm thinking that an Asus update has helped throttle back the CPU now, since I'm now topping out at 97 C. Still too high and the poor cooling design still causes the CPU to be throttled back constantly while gaming. This is definitely not Asus's best effort. There are now a number of reviews out on both the 15" and 17" models of this machine and most concur that there are some big issues (terrible scree quality and overheating + heavy CPU throttling). Too bad. In spite of all that, there's a lot i like about this laptop....but yeah, it's pretty flawed!
