Hello!
I have overheating and i dont know how serious it is :c
Thanks in advance!

I have the following hardware:
Gigabyte G5 KF (2023 laptop)
I5-12500H
rtx 4060 75w
16 gb ddr4 3200mhz

I know this model has heating problems (mine only has this one core :C ) and many others, but i noticed that:
1. turbo just shoots from temps from 60 to 85-90 degrees and up instantly
2. Theres one core P-3 that always reaches 98 (100) degrees and throttles back to 95. (difference betweem the other cores are 5-7 degrees)
this isnt a problem in games, because its only this core being throttled and no performance issue
but! in benchmarks like cinebench sometimes it stops all the other cores from working properly(lowers overall wattage)

i cant repaste it because it apparently wanishes guarantee (i have 3 years) and the cpu is locked for clocking unfortunately.
I use a cooling pad

1. Is this just one core temp ok, or should i get this laptop replaced?
2. should i turn off turbo for longevity? (the perf. change is relatively big)
assuming its just one core and overall the temps on gpu/other cores quite good, i dont know what to do
 
Solution
You have 4 Performance cores and 8 efficient cores:
Laptop coolers have light and compact cooling systems; they are not very good.
A processor will throttle if it detects a dangerous temperature to protect itself; that is good and normal.
The throttling is momentary until the heat issue resolves.

If you run benchmarks or stress tests for a living, you might want a desktop.
But, if your gaming performance is good, I would not worry about it.
