but i remember that was happen 2-5 per Month , but now its happening 5 time /day !!
and this made me MAD ! :mad:
i search for solve on google but i ddint find the solution , until i find this forum .

notice : if i didnt quit the game 100% the system will suddenly shut down after 1 min.
and often that happens on below temperatures "88,90,89 Celsius"
i remember that the GPU fan speed on 100% it was about 9500rpm but now its only the half or less :(

i have been try this solutions :
Get an "air can" and clean the heatsinks .
update the drivers.
flash the bios .
force the fan to 100% "its stll about 4500rpm"
but it didnt works

more info. :
system idle

ATI cards, like anything from AMD, run very hot. Hotter than most Nvidia cards and chipsets, and it has been that way for a long, long time. I would suggest repasting the GPU, or sending it into Asus for a repaste job if you do not feel comfortable completely disassembling your laptop and taking the heatsink off of the GPU. Also, games like BF3 are very, very GPU intensive. Nvidia cards have always been better at dissipating heat and handling intensive games. It is a known fact.

My advice, never buy an ATI card... HA. Seriously, repaste the GPU.

That isn't what I said at all. I said simply that Nvidia cards and Intel CPUs handle heavy loads better than AMD chipsets do. You do not need to get a new laptop, you could simply repaste the GPU or send it into Asus for a repaste job (although, I do not know if they do that)

Two years ago I sent mine in for a repaste due to overheating GPU (kept hitting thermal shutdown at 110-115C). The repair facility replaced the entire VGA board and it came back with the same overheating problem. Not only that, but 2 of the GPU heatsink screws were left loose, my keyboard was replaced with one of a darker color, and the keyboard cable was plugged in upside down. Hopefully the Indiana repair facility has improved since then.

I ended up repasting it myself, and my GPU hasn't gone above 92C since. So it seems 92C at max load is normal :P

@Idestruction iam just kidding i know exactly what you mean :p ,i will repast the GPU as soon as possible

@Yuxi3200 my asus warranty is over right now, so i have to do repastting by my self , 92C is normal !! i dont think so cuz my laptop shutdown suddenly after those temp.'s . and any help in repaste from you - i will be grateful :o

You just need thermal paste, the BTOTech disassembly video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tp90M_N6dzs), a screwdriver, and a lot of patience. When you get access to the GPU, it's pretty straightforward - just remove the heatsink, clean the old paste off (leave the small pads on covering the VRAM chips), apply new paste, and put it back together. :p

Arctic Silver 5 is probably the best thermal paste on the market. Relatively cheap too. I would suggest buying the cleaning kit too, comes with a purifier and surface cleaner that will get rid of ALL old thermal paste

I had this issue after I updated my GPU drivers a week ago. I reverted back a version of Catalyst Control Center as well as GPU drivers after completely uninstalling everything ATI. I was running 100c in Tribes Ascend for a few days and now I'm running no higher than 85c after a few hours of gaming. Good luck!

12.4 caused the overheating. I am using 11.1

Interesting...12.4 caused BSODs for me but not overheating. I'm running 12.6 now and all is well. :D
