I recently bought an SSD, this one: https://www.amazon.de/SanDisk-PLUS-120GB-Sata-Internal/dp/B01F9G43WU/ref=asc_df_B07621PNWC/?tag=&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310594507569&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10389343012982921541&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9044536&hvtargid=pla-386821450011&th=1&ref=&adgrpid=64737915114 and removed the original 1TB HDD. After a few weeks my Laptop has been quite hotter and I recently tried to play a videogame which was very laggy even tried to lower the quality but nothing changed.

Update: I updated the BIOs which helped with the noise and lowered the heat a bit, havent tried any games yet. Does anyone recommend applying new Thermal paste?

Its an Acer Aspire E5-574, and yes, i havent touched the drivers since i got it excluding the Realtek Audio driver which i downloaded from other sites after downloading windows on the SSD
 
What is the cpu and gpu temperatures when gaming?

If a temperature problem I don’t see how an SSD could directly cause an increase in temperatures. I’d guess it’s either a coincidence or maybe when putting in the SSD something happened to the cooler, maybe come loose, misaligned or blocked.
