Hey guys :)



Need some input here. You see, ideally, I want this laptop to last till December 2020, or even till after that to have as a nice backup.



Ok so, I have the Dell Inspiron 7559 (i7 6700HQ, 16GB RAM, 960M and 1 TB HDD). My ambient room temperature is usually between 25-30 degrees Celsius.

In FIFA19, GTAV And COD, the GPU and CPU average around 75 degrees Celcius, with occasional peaks to 80-83 degrees for just a few seconds. However, with the Witcher 3, it usually averages 77 degrees on CPU (with a peak of 85 degrees) and the GPU averages 84 degrees, with a peak of 88 degrees, lasting a few seconds at a time.



So here's my question: Do you think this will last me for another two years, especially with the Witcher 3 temperatures? (It's currently 2.5 years old)

I have done all the necessary "adjustments", such as giving the area around the fans a slight lift to allow for airflow, aswell as reducing the maximum processor speed to 90%. I also clean the fans every 2-3 months. The only thing I haven't done is re-paste the chips, but I don't think that is necessary yet, given that the temperatures havent risen ever since I've bought it



Thank You :)

You can try Throttle Stop to undervolt your laptop. I just started using it yesterday on the same laptop but with an i5-6300HQ. I basically decreased the CPU Core and CPU Cache voltages by -125mv and it lowered temps by about 7c. I don't really play many games anymore, just Star Trek Online and replayed Fallout 3 a few months ago. Temps decreased from 75c to 68c. With my DeepCool Multi Core X6 cooling pad turned on the temps drop to 63c.

I have not had time to fine tune tweaks and tests so it is possible to that lowering voltages a little bit more could lower temps without decreasing performance or causing the laptop to freeze up.

Watch the following video for the basics on Throttle Stop and how to automatically launch the program when you log on.

1060 is the standard now, so no - your card is like 75% slower.

Compared to 8750H (which I also consider the minimum), your CPU is also slightly behind (although not so bad - circa 25%) but this is not so important for non-CPU-bound games (unlike WoW, for example).

End of 2020 is a stretch - mid/end of 2019 is max, unless you plan to play FIFA 19 when 20 comes out.
