Hello everyone.

I have a problem that when i'm playing games (dota2, csgo etc.), my laptop usually has sudden fps drops (from 100 to 15-20, and then back to 100 after few sec), although i have already used the lowest graphic settings. I have also tried to clean the laptop and the fan but that problem still happen. Any ideas for this?
-Intel (R) Core (TM) i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30GHz (4CPUs), ~2.3GHz
-NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M
(p/s: before i had played some games with almost maximum graphic settings without any problem. I also found that the temperature of my GPU usually reach maximum ~70 degree, and CPU usage peak at 100% while playing )


Very high CPU temps. The CPU is likely downthrottling to try and protect itself from burning out.

Unfortunately, the only real solution to this is to get some new hardware as can't upgrade the CPU or GPU in a laptop.

Thanks for your answer. Do you have any other suggestions? Or buying a new laptop is the only way?
In addition, the maximum CPU temperature while playing are about 85, 80 and 85 degree for CPU core 1, core 2 and CPU package respectively.
