[Solved] Hello, my GPU (660m) temp is
37C -> idle
83C -> max load
both at +135 core and +500 memory

CPU (i7 3610QM) temp is
47C -> idle
95C -> max load

(room temperature about 25C)

Neither CPU or GPU never throttles anyway i think that are pretty high temperatures that maybe can over time damage these components and also i want to overclock GPU over 135 limit but i cant do that whith that temp. I had once my machine at service (because malfunction of keyboard) but i also wrote note to technicians about these temperatures and they replied me that temperatures are normal. And my questions are: Are they ? Should i worry and re-paste it or not? Isn't voiding warranty for re-pasting too risky ?

How are you coming up with these temps? and what are you stress testing with. If your getting these temp running games or normal use they would be too high! under full load Stress testing there just a little high, I think your CPU will start throttling at 100 or 110C

Yes you will void your warranty if you repaste yourself.

i think it is normal temp.

I've measured that GPU temp while playing battlefield 3 for about 30 minutes on ultra details, but msi afterburner kombustor and 3d mark benchmarks had very similar results. (79C default clocks and 85C +135 and +500). CPU temp has been measured by OCCT benchmark, but it is common that CPU is over 90C while playing lasted games. I know that i void warranty if i re-paste it, but my question is that if you recommend it with these temperatures?

I would send it in for a repaste. Mine don't reach those temps, running Furmark 1080 full screen 15 minutes mine will reach 83C in 8 minutes and bounce 80c to 83C for the duration. Using Burn in Test 100% CPU my CPU will stay below 80C Both of these are far more stressful than any games. Mine is not OC and I can't help you with OC issues. You do that at your own risk and if that is the only reason you are overheating, back off the OC until you can maintain safe Operating temps. Or what ever you consider safe Operating temp.

ok i'll consider it, thank you for your opinion both of you :)

if you wanna OC, it's better to make sure the cooling is fine. i suggest you replace thermal paste and clean up your fans and vents once the gpu temperature is over 84c (i.e. send it to a local service center for this if you do not wanna void the warranty). cpu is usually about 10c higher than gpu.

by the way I live in a tropical country.

so if it reached while slightly OCed 85C (only in stress test) usually don't cross over 83C, should i use default clocks ? and i am just curious if re-pasting in my case is worth of voiding the warranty (1 year of warranty is remaining). Sending to a local service is too expensive option for me, because for technicians (as i said in previous posts) is these temperatures completely save (at default clocks of course) and it is not covered by warranty

I just stumbled in here, all of this information is very helpful. I also reach 85's in GPU whilst gaming upon the BF3. I know a friend who will clean up my comp, he owns a service...

While I'm here, does anyone recommend using a cooling pad, or have any qualms with them?

uh? what's not covered by warranty?

if you're ok with tearing down the whole laptop, flip the mobo, and take the fans and heatsinks out for cleaning on your own, just make sure you understand that you're throwing away the warranty. (well, sooner or later your laptop will need maintenance anyway. it's your call.)

the good news is this: if your laptop has no issues since day one, I think it's relatively safe to do maintenance by yourself.

the cooling pad gives no significant effects on the g-series (at least g55/g75).

i mind that i cant demant from Asus RMA re-pasting gpu or cpu with this temperature, because in their opinion it is completely save and normal temperature.

of course that i understand that i ll throw away the warranty if i disassemble and re-paste my machine, that's why i created this topic and asking you if it is worth of it. But i think you are right, that if it has no issues since day one, it is no such a risk if i lost the warranty. I am curious how much C can i push down with re-pasting on both components.

first sorry but i guess i cannot give you a good answer to this because i have swapped the cpu to 3820qm (and honestly, the cpu heatsink is such a small and thin piece that it cannot dissipate heat well enough for this cpu)

thermal paste is not magic that you can implement then magically it will push the temperature down. the efficiency of a cooling system also includes other parts, especially heatsink, the fins, and the fans. (all of these should be kept in good conditions: the fins should be free from layers of dust; the fans should be working properly; and thermal paste / pads should be replaced when it's not efficient to conduct heat)

in general, free access to these components just means it will allow you to maintain the cooling better. if you asked me, i will say it's worth it.

for a g55, when you do the cleanup, you will need to replace the thermal paste of cpu and gpu simultaneously. (this is by design)

honestly ? I would just open it up and repaste, ofc be careful and look up guides/vid tutorials online.
That being said, if it is like the g75, I only found one sticker that said void warrenty if broken, and that was on a screw for the CPU, so technically you wont void it unless you break that sticker.

ok then i'll take your advices, i already ordered gelid gc-extreme thermal paste :) and i'll post here later my temps after re-pasting and cleaning
