And therein lies the problem
At the risk of sounding like I am calling out specific companies how is this any different that crApple and the Macs with the desktop chips in them? They rework the fan curves and voltages to allow the CPU to run at higher speeds for longer while sitting at 95°C or higher and if you have seen any of the tear downs of other "gaming" laptops the bloody heatsink designed for them is gigantic. I get the limited space but really? How is it that temps high enough to possible warp parts and cause thermal runaway (let's be honest because that's basically whats going on here since the cooling solutions suck at best) don't get noticed in development? Does making sure it works properly and as advertised now a days involve turning it on making sure it posts and then gets the stamp of approval with no further testing?
Sounds suspiciously like Corsair with the hardware/firmware/software they have been putting out as of late. To put it bluntly in Corsairs case I caught them bold faced lying to the consumers and ignoring issues (issues like ICue reporting the AIO pump and fans running at the normal speeds with a temp reading of around 34°C, except looking at said fans you could clearly see they were in the silent running mode of what I like to call "OFF" and the pump was not running either. When I checked the temps using something else watched my 2700X display a temp of 88 then 95 then off, about that fast.) Needless to say I have been roasting them hard on their own forums for the last several months, and I have not been nice about it at times seeing as my issue is not just with me but the fact that so many others are having similar issues with no sign of light at the end. I think they are afraid I will let out the timeline of what transpired because what I found would seriously cloud optics of how they have been addressing things. And result in way more money than what just fixing it would cost.
For the record they have till August to finish holding up the end of the deal they made with me otherwise I will go public.
Withdrew first comment as I put in 9900K without thinking and didn't catch till after window passed.
