Mind sharing an SKU to your laptop so as to understand the specs to your laptop?

Mind sharing the make and model of the thermal paste you've used to replace what was applied from the factory/assembly line? Did you inspect your cooling assembly's fins/venting stack for any dust or debris? As for your laptop, if you've got an 8th Gen Intel processor onboard, you could try your hands at undervolting using ThrottleStop but it's best if you avoid that if you're uncomfortable with apps of that nature.

If the laptop has an MX130 on it then that laptop is not designed for gaming, rather for professionals like photographers or for students on the go with need for a minimal spec'd discrete GPU to help them out when in a pinch.
