Laptop Specs:
AMD Quad Core Ryzen 5 3550h (2.1GHz)
GeForce GTX 1650
1TB HDD
Windows 10 OS
16GB RAM


The CPU temp of my laptop on High Performance profile rises upto 65-75°C even when idle.
During gaming, the temperature goes above 80°C and in most scenarios hits the 90°C mark as well which is really concerning.

However on Balanced and Balanced(Acer Optimized) mode, there is no such issue and the CPU temperature stays below 80°C everytime. BUT, the performance is quite low and I can experience lags in the game sometimes.

I have tried turning off the turbo boost by setting processor power management to 99% from 100% but it doesn't help me with performance. It only trades off performance for low cpu temps. So practically, I'm not able to experience good lag-free gaming without my cpu temps hitting more than 80°C.
I have also tried limiting the temperature to 80°C using Ryzen controller it prevents the laptop from performing at it's best.

I have seen people using the same laptop on Youtube and playing games without any thermal throlling issues nor performance issues whatsoever. Even on high performance profile, their cpu temps stay below 80°C and offer the best performance.

Can somebody help me out here with this?
