Overheating!

[Copy link]

Hi all,
Since I received my Chuwi 14.1 always had problems with overheating. I only do surfing, social media, email, documents, no gaming at all but the CPU always overheats and the lapbook shuts down.
This is very annoying because I have to constantly check the temperature.
I am sure that Chuwi could do a better job to dissipate the heat but since nobody is complaining about it, I am wondering if I am the lucky one... Chris from Techtablets had this issue only with gaming but it seems that I have this issue with normal use.
Temperature in idle is 60 degrees and reaching 100 degrees when working.
Anybody else encountered this issue? Could be bad driver?

Any help is appreciated,
Thanks

Maybe Chuwi forgot the thermal pad between cpu and the metal top they put over cpu, eMMC, ram and bios

I can't use the lapbook as it is!
