I own an MSI GE72VR-6RF. I'm having an issue where the CPU (an i7 6700HQ) runs very hot. sometimes while its under a 20% load it will run at over 80C and over 90C when under a higher load and will throttle once it reaches about 95C. I had to under volt the CPU to get temperatures stable, but even then it still runs at 67C when under a small load. Other owners of laptops with this CPU are reporting they are having similar issues. I love this laptop its awesome but I have never had an issue with a mobile i7 before. What could be the problem?

Well, Check Maybe The Fan Is Full Of Dust, Or CPU Termal Paste Is Gone, That Can Be A Solution, If You Don't Know How To Open And Clean Laptop Yourself, And If You Have Extra Money Hanging Around, Give It To The PC Mechanic, So He Can Change Termal Paste...
