1) Edit /system/etc/thermald-8064.conf

or

2) change to a kernel that uses an alternate thermal control(IntelliThermal, Bricked thermal)

It's doing that for a reason though...

I'm mobile and I can't find a tutorial on changing the settings but info is out there. They are at bottom of file under patherrm or something like that, it's not intuitive.

AICbeta2 will give you intellithermal. Have to switch to it in something like trickster mod.

Under [pa_therm0] you will see 2 lines under the threshold temps

Code:
actions          cpu+gpu+battery+hotplugcpu+lcd+fps    cpu+gpu+battery+hotplugcpu+lcd+fps     cpu+gpu+battery+hotplugcpu+lcd+fps     cpu+gpu+battery+hotplugcpu+lcd    cpu+gpu+battery+hotplugcpu+lcd  cpu+gpu+battery+hotplugcpu+lcd  cpu+gpu+battery+hotplugcpu+lcd
Code:
action_info      1728000+400000000+1+0+255+60          1512000+400000000+2+2+231+60           1242000+400000000+3+2+219+54           1242000+320000000+3+2+200         1134000+320000000+3+2+185       1134000+200000000+4+2+185        1134000+128000000+4+3+145
First line is the actions it takes, i.e CPU throtlle, GPU throttle. You would be concerned with lcd.

Second line is what value it sets at each threshold. You can see lcd gets stepped down from 255(max brightness) to 231, then 219, 200, 185, 145. Edit what you want back to 255. Like I said previous these values are there for a reason so if some damage occurs you only will have yourself to blame. The tablet is overheating and you are editing the protective actions. I would recommend at first just changing the 231 to 255, and if it continues to be an issue 219 to 255.
