In freebsd-es a similar problem was reported some months ago. The cause is fan switch off after startup menu and rising temperature. It looks like ec controller problem (Acer doesn't provide documentation about Embedded Controller, all is done by try and error and can damage the laptop)

A not so good wokaround is down the temperature where cpu Hz is adjusted:

#sysctl hw.acpi.thermal.user_override=1
#sysctl hw.acpi.thermal.tz0._PSV=65C
#sysctl hw.acpi.thermal.user_override=0

Or downgrade to 8.x
