Hello,

Is it normal that when using MSI Afterburner the temperature of my CPU changes super fast? It can go from 80 to 95 in 1 second and back down again.

Thanks.

I don't have any performance problems, the only problem I have is that my processor is running at 90 degrees in game

Yes on that no problem but on the fact that I have peaks concerning the temperature which change super quickly I find it strange because during several benchmark on youtube the temperature does not change so quickly

it depends on the load its under it can quickly Oscillate it just depends how fast the software is reading the sensor alot will sample it once every lets say 300 times in 2-3 seconds and average it out hense the other ones are saying its 90 that is probably measuring the Live Values very fast so yes you will see Spikes and dips as its not being Averaged out by the software.

So if it stays at 95 longer, would that make you happy? Is it the quick change that makes you sad?

When the CPU hits 95, it gets throttled which immediately reduces its temperature. Thats normal. If you dont want to game at 90 degrees, buy a PC.

If you do not have any error or performance issue, I can tell it is normal. There is the thermal protection mechanism for the laptop. You do not need to worry if it will damage your lapotp. In order to have high performance, most laptop will reach high temperature while running the CPU-intensive program.
Note. The Tjuntion is 100 degree which means a processor will reduce the power to decrease the temperature untill it is overheating.
There are lots of factors can impact the temperature.
1. The performance of thermal grease. - If you have the laptop for a long time, the performance of thermal grease will be decreased probably. You can try to re-paste it and it might be improved gradually. If your laptop is quite new, I do not think you have to do it.
2. Usage scenario or laptop workload
3. Fan module
4. Power setting or performance setting.
5. Ambient tempearture
If you want to decrease the temperature, you can try to disable the program that you do not need to use to decrease the laptop workload.
There are other settings like cooler boost or advanced fan setting from MSI Center or MSI Dragon Center. You can try to adjust them to increase the heat dissipation or you can switch to balance mode to decrease the power of CPU. However, it is a trade-off relation. The performance will be impacted by decreasing temperature.
Hope this information is useful for you.
