I have had a MSI Apache Pro gaming laptop for roughly a year. Ever since i got it, i noticed many of the games that i played had a strange stuttering issue even though i had fairly high fps. I did not concern myself with this until recently when i finally had enough and began looking for a solution. After checking my CPU temperature using the MSI Dragon Gaming Center application, i noticed that i have some really high CPU temperatures. The laptop would idle around 70°C and during most games, reach 95°C and cap itself at that temp. The only way to lower the temperature was to set the computer on battery save mode. This resulted in temperatures around 85°C during gaming. It seemed like this was the cause of my stuttering since i figured that the CPU was limiting itself to avoid damage. I opened the case and checked for dust, however the inside was almost perfect and then re-applied thermal paste to the CPU and GPU. The temps almost seem worse now. During high performance mode, Idle temperatures are around 75 or 80°C but bounce around randomly, sometimes up to 90°C for a second before lowering again. The fan works great and i do not know what else to do about this. I found a forum where other MSI Apache Pro owners were saying that this is normal for this laptop but i find that hard to believe. Is there something that i am overlooking, or anything else i could do to try and lower the temperatures? thanks for any help you could give me!
