    Yes. Undervolt CPU for better thermals and potentially better performance.

    I use throttlestop and it works wonders.

    it is normal yes, that's why laptops don't last as long. buy a cooling pad.

    I have a gaming laptop as well and the cpu runs at like 90 degrees when gaming even with the fan on ultra

    Yup. Gaming laptops get hot. Lift it up off the table/desk or get one of the cooling pads.

    Yeah, that's the downside to putting all those powerful components in a laptop. No matter how nice the cooling system is they engineer for it it's still a small space to trap all that heat. Get a cooling pad to put it on and it should help quite a bit, but don't get a ****ty one and check fan placement to make sure it's optimal. If you can't get a cooling pad at the very least try to put some fan towards it to help. In the past I've used a book placed under one end of the laptop to prop it up and then had a fan positioned to blow air under/across it and it helped dramatically although obviously it's not as clean looking as the pad.

    You bought a performance machine, what did you expect, good efficiency?

    My gaming laptop lasts 1-2 hours on battery with Windows, but I have a Linux partition with some power saving packages I’ve installed and tweaked. Used it this way when I was in school because I wasn’t playing games all the time obviously. Lasts 9 hours on minimum brightness, GPU disabled, CPU undervolted, no bluetooth/wifi, and minimal background services.

    As for heat, yeah, that’s pretty common with laptops unfortunately. Undervolt and clean the fans regularly to prevent temps going 90-95+ C. Have good air circulation near the vents and the room. Pretty much all you can do.
