This is laptop... And the fan is working correctly, the core temperature
doesnt go higher than 80 °C which is not too much imho... GPU
temperature is the same...
I have found only 1 fan in the laptop case and cleaned it...
But lockups still appear... :-(

Gfs

With this (despite my confusion at the word "below"), I have to wonder if
your
CPU fan is working correctly. If it is not functioning at maximum
efficiency,
it could be that whenever you work it hard enough (like many of those 3D
games
will do), it will overheat. If this is the case, you're lucky it continues
to
run.

I would open up the side panel and watch the fan as I turn it on. Make sure
it spins smoothly. If it does, see if your BIOS throws up a message about
fan
speed as it boots and post the result here.
