View Full Version : G750JW High temps

02-11-2014, 12:22 AM
I have really high temps on my stock G750JW (virgin). I bought it on Best Buy on 2/1/2014.
I haven't touched the hardware at all. I used Intel Burn Test to get the temps.
Is this normal? in the factory specs?

Lots of threads on the issue.
Not normal, not good IMO, seems to be less prevalent on the JH. You're certainly not the 1st. Did you max out the multipliers?

Have you checked your GPU temps?

I'd be considering warranty straight up, might head that way myself.

I am not sure what you mean by maxing the multiplers. For the GPU, the FurMark can achieve max temp of 62C which is great IMO.
I will be returning it in this case most likely...

My temperatures are max 62 degrees, tested on same program with G750JW

i just ran the intel extreme tuning utility stress test...max was 91. when idle it is 40-55. by the way what was your stress level selection on intel burn test?

edit: i tried on standart, it went over 90 right away and stayed like that for a while. should go for warranty?

Just ran Intel Burn Test on my G750JX (Standard), at max it reached 86, 75 average though. 90+ can be dangerous.

Just ran that one, Reached 90. Not sure i'd run it with stock settings, i'd be mid-high 90's.

Backing it off now even further, can make it peak at 82, will run it though its paces, see how the demanding games deal with the changes.

I returned the G750JW and got G750JX with the better 770M video card. the temps on the CPU are the same. I undervolted the CPU with -115mV on both (used the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility) and got about 15C better temps. The total power of the processor dropped to 35W, which is great compared to 50W peak power.

If your CPU isn't Throttling, which happens when the CPU thinks it has gotten "hot enough", you are ok. The JW/JX get hotter than the JH because the JH has a much better cooling system.

I ran the JW/JX and saw the same 90+ peaks before I ran undervolted with XTU, and had no problems.

The few we have seen on the forums that warranted RMA were showing throttling of the CPU under normal use.

You are all fine :-)

They do run hot.

If you're gaming, I would not be surprised to see 70-75 deg even when undervolted.
