Aloha,

I purchased this laptop for my son's birthday. I turned gaming mode on and believe I have the settings for high performance because he has it plugged into his charger and outlet all of the time. Anyway of course there is no issue when he is playing Roblox, but when my son and I played a multiplayer game of Total War WarHammer II his laptop and charger box got extremely hot. We turned his fan on the whole time but it stayed very hot. That game is a few years old and his new laptop is very advanced and should be able to easily handle that game. I am just wondering if there is anything I can do to make it cooler during playing this game, and should I worry about it getting hot or not? Here are the specs.

GE75 Raider 10SE-008US-BB71075H16G1T0DX10MA

I also have GE75 (slightly better CPU and GPU). What temperatures do you reach? TW games are very CPU demanding, so probably you will have to use to it. During playing in TW:WII, on my GE75, I reached 95 Celcius (and because of that - thermal throttling). Now, after CPU undervolting, I reach 75-80 Celcius. Unfortunately, because of warranty laws in the EU, I'm not able to put a better thermal paste. If you live in the US, you probably can do that without losing a warranty. The cooling pad is also an option for you. It will give you a few degrees less.

I have the same "problem" on Total War: Warhammer II. My laptop (I7 10th gen, RTX 2060) is so hot that my palms are burning. To be honest I don't think such laptops should be sold. They literally can do you harm.

@zkozlowski If we spent 2000$ on a laptop we should not need to change a thermal paste in it. It should already have the best possible thermal paste on this planet.

I couldn't agree with you more, but it is like it is. As I remember, MSI uses Arctic Silver Ceramique 2 as a thermal paste - we all know it is not the best one.
The MSI statement for its issue is that those temperatures are "normal" for this CPU's model. Nobody takes to account that our fingers are burning. What I did, and only what I can recommend is to undervolt the CPU. It's not the best solution, but fingertips burn less.
