View Full Version : g551jm temperatures while gaming

01-25-2015, 12:08 AM
Hello, I have bought a new Asus g551jm gaming laptop (i7-4710HQ quad core, geforce GTX 860m) a few days ago. I have used Speedfan to measure my temperatures while playing Warframe, Left 4 Dead 2, and Dead Island Epidemic.

Left 4 Dead 2
GPU = 63-65
CPU = 65-69

GPU = ~65
CPU = 68-72

Dead Island Epidemic
GPU = ~82-83
CPU = ~84-90

From www.videocardbenchmark.net,
the minimum card for dead island is NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT (758)
the recommended card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 (4117)
and my GeForce GTX 860m is (1655)

It is ranked quite a bit higher than the recommended card required for Left 4 Dead 2 and Warframe. But for dead island which I played at the highest settings it meets the minimum but not the recommended graphics card. Its temps seem pretty high but I believe this is the reason why. I am wondering is it normal to have all these temperatures? Thank you for the help.

Giving the fact that it is a smaller form factor gaming laptop and that the i7-4710hq reaches 90C even on the G751 notebooks (which come with +2kg and a much bigger cooling system), yes the temps are quite normal. If those are the maximum temps after 2-3 hours of gameplay and the GPU/CPU doesn't throttle then you don't have to worry.

You could use a coolpad while gaming just to remain under the 90C level. I think that a peak of 85-86C on the CPU will be safe for your hardware even in long sessions of gaming.

As for the GPU, I think that it gets so hot because the CPU produces much more heat and the heatsink shares the heat between them (as it happens for the G751).

Keep an eye on the temps with a program like HWInfo and use the "log to file" option to see the actual average temp while you are gaming.

95C is not too hot (CPU is allowed up to 100C per intel spec), so your freezing problem must be caused by some other hardware or software issue.

My 551JM has been up to 97C during stresstesting, and it still has not frozen or crashed. Rock stable.

Try updating drivers/BIOS. If that doesn't help I'd send it for warranty repair as the most likely cause is hardware error.
