I did, however, have to undervolt the processor in the BIOS to make it not run outrageously hot. This took a matter of minutes between looking up what to do and actually doing it. There has never been an overheating issue since.
Interesting. I may need to do that as well. My CPU gets pretty hot sometimes will I'm gaming and sometimes (very rarely) my games freeze. GPU temps are fine but CPU really climbs. I also repasted when I added a second nvme drive. Helped a little maybe?

Why oh why don’t they make these laptops 0.33-0.5 inches thicker allowing for larger fans and radiators. It would also have the added benefit of making them quieter when hot.
And that 512gb ssd on this model is laughably small.

Yeah. The added size would definitely help however I find the 512 to be plenty. I ended up putting in a 2TB nvme in as a second drive and it's been just fine.
