I own an Alienware 17 R4 with the following configuration:
32 GB 1200.5 MHz (DDR4-2400 / PC4-19200) RAM
Intel Core i7-7820HK
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB
UHD GSYNC Panel
Samsung 512 GB SSD and a 1 TB HDD
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Professional (x64)
BIOS Version 1.5.0
I got it almost a year back in January 2018. Recently I have been having issues with low fps in almost all the games I play. I monitored the CPU and GPU temperatures and noticed that the CPU was throttling after reaching 99°C. I tried to set the fans to maximum and I also tried to undervolt the CPU to see if it helped. The temperature stayed below 80°C but I was still experiencing FPS issues. I am getting as low as 5 frames per second in AC Odyssey and FIFA17.
I would really appreciate a solution to my problems.
