And here we are, same location ingame (so strain would be the same), same external processes running, same everything except I "modded" the lapcool2 to give an extra 1/4" lift.
You'd have thought something this small would have been considered by the dev'l team when designing this laptop, but with the many other flaws it has I'm not totally surprised. They coulda made the pegs lifting it up slightly longer and there really wouldn't be a heat issue. I'm sure if I raised it up to give 1/2" or 1" clearance the heat would drop 5 or more degrees. But as you can see, it never came close to the peak underclocking point. It'd be nice if it could levitate, but with the weight I'm sure that won't be happening
Edit: Also, the small extra lift brought the idle temperature down 6 degrees.
Edit2: Tested it out, lifting the laptop up in the air drops it an extra 4 degrees, bringing the idle temperature from 50 down to 40. It may have went down further, but that darn thing is heavy after 5+mins of holding it up in the air
