You have it all wrong. Perhaps I should've been more clear or not created a misleading post.
The fastest way I can cooldown my PC is setting it to Power Saver. Immediately put it back to High Performance once it has "cooled down".
My performance drop starts when my PC is on for hours watching either 720/1080p movies or when it has been playing video games for hours. It starts to stutter.
I too can play 1080p movies without any single frame drop. Its on the 3rd or 4th movie that causes this to inevitably happen.

You probably see alot of blue screens I imagine.
I have received blue screens for the past several days every day for some reason. I didn't have time to take note of it as it happens when I'm browsing a website instead of watching a movie or playing games.
Is this a hardware problem or a software? I've never dropped my laptop. I've taken great care of it.
