I recently acquired an Alienware Aurora R9, with an air cooled i7-9700. Has anyone here heard any issues with overheating, or heat issues with 2019 Alienware Aurora computers?
I have seen a lot of forums, people encountering high temperatures because of the case design (lack of air flow).
The i7-9700 CPU temperature ranges from 38° C to as high as almost 70° Celsius (according to open HW monitor). The GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card gets to around 70° Celsius, playing Spyro the Dragon Trilogy on Steam.
After performing a “Reset this PC” , the Alienware seems to be running cooler. The fans seem to be much quieter, and the CPU & GPU temps are within a reasonable range, playing Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Idle temps of the CPU and GPU, are better as well (RTX 2070 @ 32 C and I7-9700 @ 36C).
