    Laptop gets overheat while playing games..about 95C


    I have applied thermal paste several times, recently applied shin-etsu thermal compound. I have checked the fan. Its dust free and is functioning properly. Tested the temperature with various softwares, such as HWInfo64, HWmonitor and GPU-Z. The temperature reaches ~95C while playing games. No FPS drops, I get very good FPS with games such as assassins creed unity, GTA V, Bioshock infinite. The surface above the touchpad doesn't feel too hot, but the surface just above the fan(near the side of keyboard) feels hot. Never experienced BSOD while playing games. Sometimes the temperature reach 98C but the laptop never shuts down. Room temperature is 38C right now.


    I have all the drivers installed up to date. My CPU consumes no more than 50-60% while playing games. With GPU-Z, I can see that the nvidia gpu doesn't get overheat. It stays ~78C while playing games, but when I click on the intel gpu 4600, it shows about 93+ celcius.


    I use nvidia gpu for games(Checked it with nvidia control panel), and intel gpu for other things. Its set in the nvidia control panel.


    Today I performed another test using prime95. Ran it for about 1 hour with no issues.


    I think the fan is not blowing at a high speed while playing games. Today, while using prime95, the fan was blowing at a high speed. I don't get this amount of speed while running games.

    Edit- When the laptop is in idle state, and the charger is not plugged in, the temperature is around 48-50C(intel gpu core clock speed 600MHZ). when i plug in the adapter, the temperature is ~60C(1200MHZ).

    Note that my laptop has turboboost(2.5GHZ to 3.5GHZ). When I plug in the adapter, it goes up to 3.2 GHZ from 2.4 GHZ


    Please ignore my bad english. Thank you.

    Room temp of 98C? I think you mean 98F. If ambient temp is that warm it will be very hard for the laptop to stay cool. You need a good cooling pad.

    I am very sorry. I meant my room temperature is 38C right now. I am editing the original post.

    I figured it was a typo.

    Thank you very much for your time sir. I think I have the 5th one.

    I started using it today, and it reduced the temperature by 2-3 degrees. My maximum temperature is still 97-98 C. Average temperature is ~90C.

    Shouldn't the laptop auto-shut down at such high temperature? I had overheating issue with my previous laptop (dell 1564). Whenever it was getting overheat, the processes start to hang, laptop takes a lot of time to cool down... etc.

    But with my current laptop, no such issues. Games run for hours without lagging, without laptop shutting down, etc. And when i exit the game, it cools down within minutes.

    Any other advice?

    Sorry, I don't really have a fix for you then. That is awfully hot for it to be running. You say you re-applied the thermal compound, hopefully it was done correctly.

    A room temperature of 38C is going to make it very hard for a laptop with inherent limited cooling to stay cool. Most laptops have very minimal cooling and it may be it simply can not keep itself cooler at that room temperature. Wish I had a better answer.

    I am surprised it is not shutting down or giving BSOD though. The T-Junction for that CPU is 100C so maybe it hasn't shutdown because you haven't quite hit it. Not good to be getting that close to it regularly though. Will definitely probably shorten the life.

    First off you should post in the Asus forums 2nd off since your playing games on a non G notebook you might want to check out the ROG forums NON-ROG ASUS Notebooks. You'll find more specific help there.
    Your temps do sound high but not to the point of Throttling. Your Ambient temp is also high at 38C it would be normal if in a A/C environment say 28 C your temps would drop 10C or so too.
    Mostly were repasting with IC Diamond now with our G notebooks seem to work getting us lower temps.
    Asus does not let us control fan speeds on there notebooks so the BIOS has full control of the fan speed which in turn is controlled by the CPU Temp. Higher CPU Temp Faster Fan Speeds If that's not happening it a hardware issue. You could flash a newer BIOS that may help? Asus Support Downloads

    Regarding the applying thermal compound...

    There is only one thing I noticed which is weird. The nvidia GPU shows maximum temperature of 80C in gpu-z. The intel gpu shows 95C.
    And when I separate the heatpipe to apply new thermal compound, or to check whether everything is alright, I see that the thermal compound that's in between the nvidia gpu and heatpipe is exactly in same condition as it was when I applied the compound.

    But the thermal paste that I applied in between intel and the heatpipe is displaced. And its displaced every time I check it. Do you think I should loose the screws thats up above the heatpipe?

    My CPU doesn't take much load while playing games.(I can see it in the task manager). I can open a lot of things while playing games, such as chrome, firefox, hwmonitor, gpu-z, and the normal background processes. No FPS drop, no lag or hang while playing games. I contacted asus before posting here. They asked me to update bios. I did, but it didn't change anything.

    What do you mean by temperature throttling? Is it same as the word "LOG" in coretemp? I have seen the LOG word while using coretemp.
