Does Temperature Affect Matchmaking in-game, help!!

Hello,

I am using a AMD 6470M Graphics Card and a AMD Quad Core processor. (Acer 4552G Laptop)
Today, when searching for lobbies in-game, i am on a 1 bar. When yesterday, i was rocking 3 bars for a few weeks now.. (Black Ops 2)

Also, i have overclocked my graphics card @ 830mhz (Sapphire TRIXX Core Clock) and 1012mhz (Memory Clock). Is it safe? It has frozen a few times on a little higher settings.

Because i am using a laptop, the temperature is hitting around 70+ to 80+ when gaming. 50 ~ 60 when browsing the web or idle.
I have used a cooling pad but it doesn't seems to help out much, i tried un-screwing and opening the back of the laptop, but it seems to be impossible.
Any advice on reducing the temperature or disassembling it?...

Please help!!

  1. Not familiar with the"bars" you speak of, but higher temps can cause a CPU/GPU to "downclock" (slow themselves down) until they cool down.

    Does it mean slower internet speed then?? The bars i am speaking about is in the scoreboard (tab) in the game. On the right hand side. :kaola:
  3. I would expect even a downclocked CPU to be able to keep up with most internet connections.

    Do you use an internal internet card that may be overheating? (As apposed to a USB dongle etc)

    -Not sure how an overheating internet card behaves though...
  4. Maybe is just high ping. try a different server.

    I am using the ethernet cable to connect to the internet all the time, i don't use wireless internet connections. Thanks for the reply :)

    In BO2, it is the server that connects your to a foreign ones. This game sucked so bad and i bought the Season Pass yesterday, serious facepalm.
