Hello i want to ask, is G501 VW series has same throttling issue like JW series. I am owner of G501 JW has problem with thermal throttling issue, i already change thermal paste (i use gelid gc extreme), clean dust and using external cooler (the logic there is no hole in bottom of case, i dont know it will help or not) but still my CPU temp keep easy to reach 82 C and gpu temp to 74-75C and causing gpu clock going so low make any game getting very lag. What i see there is different of bottom case between JW and VW series, thank you :) sorry for my bad english


THIS IS JW SERIES WITHOUT HOLE
63321

THIS IS VW SERIES WITH SOME HOLE IN BOTTOM CASES
63322

adrianfarros, hello! Have you tried to install the modified bios from Compwxr and Dreamonic?
This is the result of my attempt https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?71205-G501JW-GPU-throttle-at-74-degree-celsius&p=641534#post641534
I think the holes in the back cover do not play a big role in cooling this model, since after completely removing the back cover, the temperature of the GPU and the CPU is still higher than the throttling temperature.

hello kaps26, i have roll back to stock vbios. before that i already install custom vbios from him, it doesn't make any sense to unlock limit temp of gpu, without decrease the voltage. For example the stock limit is 78C. if i increase limit to 88C, the temp still reaching 88C too very easy and than it throttled. i just worried about my hardware. I already deep clean my laptop from dust, repaste cpu and gpu, using external cooler (its confusing because it has no hole in bottom, lol). But, no good result. Even i already use your apps you give me before (Notebook Fan Control) very cool when easy task (browsing, office etc) but when playing game such Dota 2 and GTA 5 it doesnt help, my temp reach its limit very fast :(
my room temp about 24C
