I think it was only with Edge and a YouTube video, still i think is a lot. What could the reason be??why is it pulling 31W? you were doing some stress test or that's at "idle"?
Also be careful when repasting a laptop or anything that is direct die. You really have to spread the paste to make sure the whole silicon is covered. Using the dot in the middle technique is a bit dangerous because you could have corners not covered, and that would give you some cores running cool and others cooking themselves.
Thanks for the response! That's the thing the only heavy runnung task is microsoft edge and the maximum of cpu usage comes to 60% generally less and still getting to that much heat.The could be other background tasks running including Windows Update. Check in Task Manager which process occupies the most CPU%..
Thabk you! I'll check. The thing is that would explain the power usage but not the heat, it makes no sense having +30 or more just a second after you plug the charger :Cit could be your power plan in windows. if you set it to maximum performance when plugged, the CPU will maintain high clocks and draw lots of power even doing mundane tasks. Leaving it on balanced is usually better, more so on laptops. that's worth having a look at.
When you unplug, going to battery power, the power plan changes so that would explain the difference in power usage.
