I have a Clevo gaming laptop and it has been great, but lately is running hot.
I have been hitting low to mid 90s while playing arma 3 and bioshock. I hit 104c during a CPU stress test after 3 minutes. I also have the faintest squeak when one of my fans speeds up- it happens early but I can still hear it squeak for a second.
I contacted my retailer, mythlogic, and they said I could send it in to have them clean it and repaste. It's free because of my warranty.
I have a 2 year warranty and am already a year in, so I have another year on my warranty.
What should I do? I could try and repaste and use a cooling pad. Try and lower temps myself and if it gets totally out of control send it in then. I do have a year left on warranty.
I could send it n now and lose my laptop for three weeks.
