  1. I was playing c.s go yesterday when I started noticing the fps's were dropping to 20, when usually its at 100, so because its summer I remembered to check the pc temps, and I got these:
    when im browsing internet:
    CPU: 63C
    GPU: 61C
    MotherBoard: 55C
    Fan speed: 1920 rpm
    When I start playing some game (c.s G for example):
    CPU: 90C
    GPU: 88C
    MotherBoard: 80C

    My CPU is: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHZ

    Question is, the thing that's making me lose fps's is the heat right? And if yes any ideas how to fix it? :)

    Heat will cause a number of issues including system slow downs and reboots. 1) Do you have your laptop in a well ventilated place? 2) Are your vent openings clear of dust? 3) Are you running this on a good laptop cooler (please tell me you are)?

    1)Yes, because its summer I have much windows oppened and it can flow the air realy good.
    2)I have a compressed air machine and every now and then I blow some air into the openings, I've oppened the pc to clean it better, but never disassembled the fan cause I need to remove the whole motherboard to do it, and to remove the motherboard I have to remove the keyboard, and I have the fear of breaking a cable when disconnecting them, my laptop is a acer aspire v3.
    3) No, I dont have a laptop cooler for 1 reason, my friends keep telling me that a cooler wont do much of a diference, and I dont realy know a good cooler for a 15.7 inch laptop :/

    Well think of it this way: It raises your laptop where you can have greater airflow.

    It has airflow, I did some homemade "Support" for my laptop, I sticked some water bottle cap's under the pc rubbers :)

    Oh, and today I also tried to replace the thermal paste, it's the same, it got a little bit better but not normal...
