View Full Version : Low FPS and heating with my G53SW

03-09-2013, 01:40 PM

I have a 18 mounths old G53SW with a GTX460M.

I have some troubles since last mounth, if I take an "old" game like Tribes Ascend, my FPS are at about 90 at the begining, and after 10 minutes, it goes down to 20.
But I don't have any graphical issue, just the number of FPS.

I looked at the temperature with TechPowerUp GPU-Z :
65C when I switch on the computer
85C when I am just on my web browser ... even if the CPU and the GPU Load is under 5% ...
97C while playing Tribes 10 minutes.

The fans are working, the left side is not very hot, the right side is really hot.
Is it useful to painfully open the computer to try to clean it ?
Is there something else to do ?

Thanks !
