I have a HP 14s cf2-xxx that always overheats when editing and gaming, i tried undervolting , tuning the fan and raising the bottom of the laptop . it helps a little but still throttling . can anyone help? The laptop has little vents and the exhaust is at the back of the screen.

This has been the issue with gaming laptops from the beginning of time. The most you can do if give it a fresh application of thermal paste if you believe it could be dry, and clean the dust out of the airways. Aside from that, laptops have always been inherently crippled by either lack of power, cooling, or both.
