Acer Triton 700 Thermal Testing, Undervolting and Overclocking
Moving up to gaming in the green bar, the temperatures were still acceptable, and this was after temperatures stabilized from an hour of playing after manually maxing out the fans and Yeller the CPU and GPU temperatures. Birth dropped back a bit with the CPU under bolted by minus 0.15, o volts, but fans back on default. The CPU temperature was a little cooler than by just maxing out the fans shown in orange with the CPU under volt and max fans combined. We get the best temperatures yet shown in red. The stress tests were done by running a 264 and the heaven benchmark at the same time, in order to attempt to fully utilize both the processor and graphics moving up in the graph and starting with the dark red bar, the CPU painted 87 degrees Celsius. Honestly, not too bad for extended load, especially considering how thin the laptop is by maxing out the fan and applying the under vaulting shown in the pink purple and dark blue bars. The temperatures get significantly better. These are the average clock speeds for the same temperature tests. Just showing not really much to show here, as there was no thermal or Parliament throttling, the 7700 HQ was able to boost to its 3.4 gigahertz all called turbo speed without any problems. Even in these stress tests, these are the clock speeds. I got while just running CPU only stress tests without a GPU load, again no difference from before absolutely no throttling at all on the cpu.
Under any of my testing refreshing to see from the 8750 h, laptops have tested recently, I've got some Cinebench cpu benchmarks. Here I was getting the same results with or without the CPU undervolt applied. As shown earlier, there was no throttling at all here. So no problems getting the full performance with the out of the box configuration just for reference or comparison. I'Ve also noted the score of the newer IFI of 8300 h, the quad core laptop cpu from the eighth generation. Although the performance doesn't change, the under vault can still be used to drop the temperatures, as shown previously here are the GPU. Only clock speeds well, under a graphical, only stress dust, aces, printer descent. Software lets you apply GPU over clocks easily in two different levels, known as basta or another, the faster profile over clocks, the GPU called by seventy five megahertz and the memory by two hundred megahertz. While the turbo profile doubles this to one hundred and fifty megahertz. On the core and four hundred megahertz on the memory, I was able to get a little further improvement by manually overclocking it with MSI Afterburner up to two hundred megahertz on the core and eight hundred megahertz on the memory, as shown in red. But this may vary between laptops as it depends on the particular chip. So how does this performance boost actually translate in games in the games tested? The exact same windows updates, game updates and Nvidia drivers were installed, so there shouldn't be any other changes under faulting won't help improve performance here as we're, not seeing any throttling, but it will lower the temperatures so basically we're going to see best case performance here with My manual GPU overclocks, which again were two hundred megahertz boost to the core and eight hundred megahertz extra on the memory shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark and at the highest settings.
The other clocks were just getting us. A small six percent performance improvement to the average frame rates fortnight was tested using the replay feature and in this test the year of a clock. Results are slightly better 8.5 percent faster than running at stock speeds when running maxed out at epic settings. So there was just a little improvement with the GPU overclock applied, but it will vary between game and settings. As for the external temperatures, where you'll actually be putting your hand at idle, the body was sitting in the low 30s quite cool. While gaming, we can see that only the rear of the laptop warms up to around 50 degrees Celsius as that's, where the CPU when GPU were located, the keyboard area stays pretty cooler fairly. Similar results with the stress tests running then, with the fans manually, maxed out and CPU under voltage, the external temperatures lower by a few degrees. As for the fan noise produced by the laptop all, they ever listen to some of these tests at idle. It was fairly quiet and well gaming. There was about as loud as any other gaming laptop I've tested under stress test. This rose little and with the fans manually maxed out it gets quite loud. You'Ve got the option of controlling the fan speeds of the CPU or graphics independently through aces printers and software, so that should help him finding a good balance between temperatures and fan noise. Overall, the temperatures and performance were pretty impressive when you consider the thin body of the laptop, I expected it to run hotter with the 1080 max q graphics, but for the most part, the seventh gen CPUs seem to run cooler than the newer and faster 8th gen Options these differences in performance shown aren't, hot and fast rules.
There are different factors which will vary results, primarily the temperature you're running in application of thermal paste, and given the specific hardware which comes down to the Silicon Lottery, you may not be able to under fault or overclock your hardware. The same as me, it depends on the chip and its specific power requirements, so don't just blindly copy my settings and do some testing to find out where your stable point is for best results. While you could probably improve the temperatures by swapping out the thermal paste that's, not something I can test in a review unit, if I go ahead and remove the stock thermal paste and replace my own, I can't put the old paste back, so the next reviewer would Experience something different from what you'd actually see with the product and unknowingly report incorrect information due to what I've done in any case, third I'm perfectly happy with the temperatures I measured, especially once under bolted and with the fans boosted. So this may not be required unless you're in a very warm environment under vaulting, on the other hand, isn't physically intrusive, and although it wasn't needed to improve the performance, as there was no throttling at all here, as we've seen, it did improve the temperatures with no Downside once you've got a stable under Bowl it's a nice way to drop temperatures further without raising fair noise. Let me know how much of a performance boost you've found by under bolting your hardware and what you thought of the improvements here and don't forget to subscribe.
