well first of all this notebook initially had bios issue, did you upgrade your bios yet? have you tried cleaning out heatsink fins with compressed air? you need to take off the bottom panel and blow outwards. i am checking to see if those fans support g72.

yes i updated the bios and cleaned the heatsink many times and repasted the cpu with as5 still getting killer temps under light load like wow or basic web browsing

i wish the g72 threads got as much attention as the g73 and above
