I'm using Core tempt to monitor my laptop temperature.

I received an overheating warning for the very first time. It hit 92c when I played BF3. never had this issue before until.

I owned this laptop since June 26:(

Your laptop is fairly new, I was going to suggest checking the fan filters. Was the overheating issue out of the box or after the BIOS update?

it happened after the bios update, it only happened once last night.. I updated the bios few days ago and everything was fine. I will continue to see if the overheating occurs again..

G55 has no access to the fan.. not like G75 :(

I'm afraid you don't have a lot of options. Something like that isn't just a fluke. If it is overheating consistently, return it before it completely stops working.

Ahh! My bad about the fan filters.. I am usually against BIOS updates; ONLY update your BIOS if it provides bug fixes to issues you have. Run some tests and if the problem persists. You may still be able to exchange the unit just to avoid future problems.

You have the GTX 660m with the new Kepler. For you to get above 90C means it really is defective. From what i heard, you shouldnt even get past 80C with it.

I suggest you just exchange it for a new one while its under warranty.

it was not the GPU that overheated, it's the CPU that overheated :p

tried BF3 for about an hour in air-conditioned room, core tempt recorded CPU at 82c highest.. seems ok..

GPU furmark recorded at 84c-86c. will try again in normal room temperature of 30c-35c and see what's the outcome..

Hmmm, 82c seems pretty high. The highest temp I reach while playing BF3 is 50c to 69c. You did mention that your CPU was fine before flashing the BIOS, and that the overheating started after the BIOS update.. I suggest that you exchange it before it completely stops working! it's been only 14 days at the latest. Check your store's return/exchange policy.

unfortunately, the G55 in Malaysia is seriously out of stock, if I go for RMA exchange, not sure how long it's going to take.. 50c to 69c for playing BF3 sounds impossible to me!

what's your room temperature?
