How to Reduce OverHeating Of Laptops | Power Options
Heating is a major problem being faced by the laptop users. Heating may cause irreversible damage to the hardware inside like burning the CPU inside or reducing the overall efficiency, as the time goes on. This tip is very handy especially for the gamers and full time laptop users. Also, if you’re running out of warranty and just can’t replace your system, then this tip holds equally good for you. Buying cooling pads are also a very good option but rectifying the root problem is of no parallel.

Let us take a brief look at this tip. Our aim is to reduce the maximum processor state so that the games or any other activities that is consuming 100% CPU usage can only go to a defined limit, causing lesser heating effect. You can change these limits separately for “on-battery” state and for the “on-dock” state. This also results in efficient use of processor and subsequent battery power conservation

In this tutorial, I will tell you how to reduce the heating issue of your Laptops. This procedure is easy to perform at home without any professional assistance.

Based on experimental facts, it is seen that reducing the processor state by a few notches decreases the temperature by 15-20 degrees of centigrade while the processor’s
performance results in very slight incline. The decrease in processor performance is almost negligible. So by experience I can tell you that 95% processor state is a good number for “on Power” and 85% is a good number for “on Battery” Laptop.

First go to Start>Control Panel.Then go to >Power Options
