Just bought a TUF Dash 15, 16 GB, RTX3060, Alder Lake Core i7 12650H. CPU out of box was getting up to 97C when opening a game. Disabled Turbo Boost and changed power settings max to 99% CPU.
Attempted to use the Armory crate to underclock and utilize faster fan speeds but doesn't seem to make a difference. Not sure if it actually underclocking it or not. Seems to be disabled in the BIOS because I cannot change with Throttle Stop or the Intel Extreme Utility.
Currently getting temps around 82-85 on a game made in 2014. (ESO) Kind of scared to run any newer games at this point.
Is this normal for the Alder Lakes? Is this going to cause problems? I hate to re-paste anything on a brand new machine. Less than a week old. Should I open a warranty case? Hate to send a brand new laptop in that I just purchased as well.
