    Operating System:
    Windows 10
    I have intel i7 6700k skylake cpu + 1080gtx nvidia if its relevant.
    I bought this laptop few weeks ago but im not happy with my gaming performance so i did run a benchmark and i saw that my cpu is going down around even 2.5ghz and clock rate grahic is like spikes going up and down. I have cooler under the laptop i havent overclocked it. is it because of heat? maximum heat was 80 degrees while benchmarking i guess that good for laptop. What should i do? I would be really grateful if someone able to help me.

    "80 degrees" Celsius or Fahrenheit? If Celsius, it's too hot. Generally speaking, try to keep Intel CPUs under 65° C (149°F).

    BTW, some CPUs slow themselves down when they start overheating in order to try and keep them from starting a fire.
    Rustys and DSTM (Dougie) like this.
