View Full Version : G55VW cooling performance & gpu temp

Hi, i've just gotten my hands on the G55VW yesterday
and I was trying to compare the performance of this machine to my previous rig
by running GTA 4 on it.

Now my previous model was the G51JX, which ran MUCH hotter than any of the later G series
(it was before the huge cooling solution was implemented)
When I play GTA 4 it would often reach up to temperatures nearing 100 degrees Celsius (for most games actually)
So I was curious as to see what the highest temp. mark would be with this machine (GPU temp strictly)

From what I have read on the internet so far I did not expect the temperature to exceed beyond 70 degrees,
maybe low 70s at max. However after prolonged playing I've found that the GPU temp had reached a whooping 80 degrees

Now I'm not exactly complaining about the cooling solution; it keeps the computer really cool at relatively silent fan noise level. (compared to my previous laptop anyway) I was just wondering if this kind of temperature was normal for the G55VW under heavy gaming load, to see if mine had any defects in it by any chance. Did anyone have similar experiences when running heavy load games? If so, how high was your GPU temp?

Thanks in advance!

For me about 65 degrees Celcius from running Tera on high settings.

Fans get quite loud at that point.

I have the G75, and I did not exceed the 67 C even when max overclocked... I know they have different cooling systems, but such difference is huge. Check if our fans are working properly, check if cooling vents are clean and not obstructed, check everything, 100 C is not good. I have the 660m, which GPU do you have ?

I've read that the 660 runs A LOT cooler then the 670, so with his temps I'd gather he has the 670.

Maybe 670m and G55 are a combination of both more heat characteristics and this is why he reaches 100 C. In either way, I would do some research since that are very high temps. Maybe check playing with your back cover out and let it ventilate a bit more.

hey guys sorry for the confusion lol
the 100 degrees is what i've observed when using the G51JX, my previous laptop

with the G55VW the maximum temperature i've reached is 80 degrees
also i have the 660m, i do not believe there is a 670m variant for the G55 series (as far as i know)

Ah, now it can be a bit more possible. 80 is a bit high for me personally, but don't stop checking for possible fans that are not throttling or something else. Run Furmark an tell me the temps, cause games also heat up the CPU and the G55 has a only one heatsink I think.

yup, you r right, got no 670m variant for the g55

I also have a G55. while playing games i ran hardware monitor on the background. later i found that the max
temperature for the GPU is also around 80C.

I've also overclocked my graphic card. Could this be a problem with the fans since i've never actually heard them running at full speed

hey guys i just ran furmark 1.10.1 on my G55VW using the burn-in test at 1920 x 1080 for 15 min

i got 1089 for my burn-score and the highest temp was 80 degrees

all this was done under P4G high performance setting, (i've changed it a bit from the default setting so that it will shift back and froth from 80~100% instead of staying at 100% all the time)

and i did not OC the gpu either. (Although according to EVGA precision, this 660m card apparently has a boost feature that boosts the core clock up to around 930 under demand..i am assuming this goes for all 660m cards)

anyways is this result considered normal?

Yes, 660m has a turbo frequency. At least my G75 has 950MHz of turbo, any overclock adds to this turbo frequency. I was able to reach +135 in core what is equal to 1085MHz in total. +135 appears to be the limit since I have not been able to find any software that would let me go beyond that. EVGA Precision limits me to max of +135.

al?
same results here :) is this normal?

i sure hope it is. no guarantees or anything but the more i search through the forums

the more i am convinced that this is at least around normal...as long as you haven't applied new thermal paste yourself

should we add new thermal paste? sadly, it will avoid the warranty

yeah =/ i am currently in process of contacting ASUS tech support to find out what the heck the temperature range is supposed to be, so i can at least determine if my laptop is actually running too hot or not. ill post as soon as i find something

BRO, marshall pmed me, he said that it is ok if it is stable and no throttling.. he also said that gpu are meant to get hot and they can handle the heat

did he now? thanks for letting me know! i guess we have no choice but to stick to it unless the screen starts artefacting or something lol. two years until new thermal paste!

If it's >80C in gaming then PM me your serial number and we'll look into whether it's natural GPU manufacturing variation or something else by checking batches of components we use. There's no need to be worried and there's no guaranteed operating temperature; if it's stable then it's fine.

recommendations for extra cooling help via like a cooling pad, etc for the g75vw?

try the cooler master cooler pad notepal x3 http://www.coolermaster.com.my/product.php?product_id=6749

or the cooler master sf-19 http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/landing/sf19/home.php

the sf-19 is one of the best cooler pad out there, but it is quite expensive, thats y i bought the x3(which is good too) and nice design
