Get yourself a cooling pad. Just lift the laptop off of a flat surface can do great things for getting fresh cool air into the machine.

*I did state in the end that I do have a cooling pad, which doesn't feel like it does the job. Currently playing Cyberpunk and my temps cap at max 93 celsius CPU and 73 gpu. Seems to stay at 92/93 constantly, and thats if i put best performance mode on battery plan. Better performance causes it to not go above 80 usually, however it does cause lower FPS.*

Oops, my bad.

I use a program called throttlestop to undervolt the CPU and GPU. After doing that I've never reached 90C and I normally hang around 83-85C on high end games

Yeah but never really gone as far as undervolting yet, so I am pretty green in that aspect. Tried to follow a similar path as one YouTube video, ended up with a blue error and system restart, changes were reset.

The offset voltage needs to be turned down incrementally that's all. You when too far and it crashed. Unlike overvolting and overclocking though you aren't going to hurt your equipment by undervolting. And even though a crash is kind of scary you're not causing damage. Plus once you know the voltage that is stable for you it's not going to crash again. I have the same laptop with a 2060 and I crashed only twice before I settled on a -120 voltage.

Firstly thermals of my helios are good , but i will suggest a few things , first undervolt your laptop , second use max fan while playing games , third lift your laptop with a book below it in such a way that both the intake vents below are free to breathe, and the last option is to repaste it with thermal grizzly which will definitely reduce temperatures by 5to10degrees.And don't fiddle with power options, keep it stock as windows goes mad sometimes :p. And also don't forget to update ur windows to version 20H2.I hope it helps.

The thermal paste needs to be replaced more than likely. Additionally as you mention, an undervolt of both CPU and GPU will help tame temperatures. You can use Throttle Stop to undervolt cache and core independently, among other things. I would Google "10750H Throttle Stop" to get a bearing on typical undervolt values for that CPU. ​ Verify core temps with a program like HWiNFO or Throttle Stop that will display multiple cores. If there is more than \~10C+ variance core to core you surely need to reapply a quality thermal paste. The CPU/GPU use identical paste from the factory in 99% of laptops so repasting the GPU at the same time is beneficial to temps/performance. 73C max temp on the GPU is well within acceptable range, but lower is always better also. CP2077 is one of the most demanding games currently in existence. You WILL push the laptop to it's limit playing with RT ON in any fashion, especially with high quality texture and high resolution. DLSS may offset some of the demand to GPU/CPU.
