View Full Version : Max Temperature

Hi Everyone,

I know there have been a few heat threads before, but it looks like they've been buried in the abyss of the forums. I just wanted to check in with anyone who has the G75vw-DS72 and know what there temperatures are like with intensive games? So far shogun 2 appears to run the most hot on the gpu with temperatures maxing at 85C, and it runs in the high 70's on average.

The forums search tool is very useful for finding the thread. Here's mine:

i7s can run fine from 90 to 100C

Thx Cecil. Sounds like i'm in the ballpark for average temp. It seems like the temperatures vary on individual models, as one person is reporting max 75 and another is capping around 90.

I guess my next question is when should I worry when something is running too hot? Also what is the best way to clean the back vents, would spraying air work or do I need to pop open the case?

I'd recommend taking the plastic covers off, removing the dust filers and while holding the fan in place blast the dust outward with the straw that comes on the can.

If you just spray from the outside in you'll just send that buildup of dust over the inside of the laptop.

Is it true that by hitting about 60-79 degrees in a game reduces the life of the hardware..?
Just wondering as i play planetside 2 and I get a constant 70-79 degrees. I feel bad when it heats up so much n then cools down after.. Can cooling and heating weaken it? If so would it be better to just play the game in one go and leave it, rather then putting it on and off..?
Thanks for the cleaning tips btw will defiantly do that.

I have two 570's in SLI on my desktop which usually run at anywhere from 68 to 79, it really isn't unheard of to have temperatures that high these days.
