Hey there guys, got Acer Predator Helios 300 been using it for a month now and noticed the temp and decided to check it out. Idle its 60c and under load its around 85-90.
Is that okay for a month old device ?
Is there any way to reduce it if thats not the optimal tem ?

That's quite normal for a gaming laptop... they tend to get a bit hot.
If it's only a month old I'm guessing that it's pretty clean inside.

You can try changing the thermal paste on the CPU and GPU.
Arctic MX-4 is a great thermal compound, you'll also need isopropyl alcohol to wipe the old paste.
