    Hey guys

    Its been a known issue that games slow down and lag dramatically in bootcamp after the computer reaches a certain heat level (give or take 15 minutes or so into game-play). Countless hours researching the issue online proved absolutely worthless and nobody to my knowledge has any solution.

    Here's a fix that I figured out! and it seems to be working perfectly for me.
    Id almost go as far as to say my bootcamp games have never ran smoother on ultra settings!

    WHILE IN WINDOWS!

    1.Click on battery icon (right bottom of screen)
    2.Change to power saver
    3.Go to "more power options"
    4.Change plan settings (next to power saver)
    5.Change advance power settings
    6.Under "processor power management" change min to 100%
    7.Under "system cooling" select both to active

    The original settings were 5% min..Im a completely new to computers but I figure this was the issue and also the cooling. Although I could be wrong but as I said it worked perfectly for me!!

    Let me know how you guys get on!

    Im running windows 7 ultimate, skyrim is running on ultra flawlessly!!

    If you leave the setting like that, it will wreck your battery life because it won't be able to clock down the processor when it's not doing anything. While playing the game, it won't matter. While websurfing? Much bigger deal.

    Are there any cheap cooling pads for laptops that can help with this?

    you are also better off disabling turbo boost by setting the max CPU to 99%.
