I have had this laptop for about a month and games have been playing great, today I opened Hotkey control center for the first time to get to the keyboard customizer. I saw the different presets and selected performance then proceded to launch chivalry in steam. I usualy get very high fps but I would estimate it was as low as 10. I exited out and checked the gpu temp and it was in the mid 80's. I let it cool down to 40C and tryed playing again and it pretty much instantly heated up and became unplayable.
I have checked the fans and they are completely clean.
