Hi all,
I have an Acer ES1 522 with an AMD A4 7210 with Radeon R3 integrated GPU

It shut down a couple of times unexpectedly so I opened it up and cleaned out a massive amount of dust from the fan/heat sink ‘blades’?, and also changed the thermal paste as it seemed to be brittle. I used Deepcool Z5
I have no idea what the CPU temps were before, I never had a reason to check (biggest CPU drain I do is watch videos)
Using HWmonitor, my idle temps are around 68d Celsius, while under a decent load it can rise to around 95

This laptop had a fresh install of windows 10 before I changed the thermal paste, so is essentially blank.

Is there anything else I should be looking at before I get a cooling pad?
I’m very confident the paste is installed correctly and the fan is also working

Old 28nm processor, they were certainly warm processors. But perhaps you need to clean out your fan and heatside underneath your laptop.

It's up to you if you want to replace the thermal paste as well while you have it opened up.
