    It's just a bad fan or bad connection on the fan's rpm signal wire. Nothing to do with static.

    From the Asus website, it was not really a changelog, more like a blog post. I'll see if I can find the link.

    Click on the "sensors" button and scroll down until you see the fans rpm thing. Mine is listed as "asus nb ec" or something like that.

    Run hwinfo and see if it's reporting the correct rpm for the fans, instead of some crazy random number or just 0.

    notebookfancontrol works just fine, you just have to create your own profile. There's a tutorial on their wiki. It's not rocket science. Worked for me but I don't use it anymore since it doesn't make...

    For general storage and games, a SATA SSD should be more than enough, but that's up to you.

    If you're replacing the HDD with an SSD you should look for a standard SATA SSD.

    M.2 is the form factor. There are SATA and NVMe m.2 SSDs. NVMe is a lot faster than SATA.

    Some laptops have more...

    If you're having a problem with your hardware, RMA it and they will do something about it.
    They are still pushing bios updates for older models and fixing issues like overheating. At least that's...

    At this point I would just replace the fans and see what happens.

    That's how it works with every single laptop manufacturer, not only Asus.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish with a modded bios?

    Try resetting the EC chip and if that doesn't work, bite the bullet and order a new battery pack. Don't wait until it starts puffing.

    Run the laptop on battery until it's completely flat, then recharge it to see if goes back to normal. You can also reset the EC chip by holding the power button with the laptop off, until the leds...

    If it's not broken don't try to fix it, then. Good luck getting any info from Asus other than that one they published. The only info they will give you is that it "improves system stability or...

    Good to hear that! Many times the problem is just bad heatsink seating. If it overheats right after repasting, just retry a couple of times and it might solve the problem.

  19. Regular paste on the vrms is not really ideal...

    Regular paste on the vrms is not really ideal because usually there's a gap between the heatsink and the components. Regular paste isn't thick enough to fill that gap without dripping out over time....

    I would recommend Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or Arctic MX-4. Any other name brand should work just fine though. As for the vrms, you can either use K5pro or thermal pads. K5pro is easier to use but not...

    Tjmax is the maximum temperature a cpu can reach before throttling or shutting down. I never said it was related to soldering. If you hit tjmax too often you will kill the chip on the long run, plain...

    It's going to last 10 years no problem. If it's not hitting tjmax, it's all good. You're not going to kill the chip by running it on mid 90c. It will be completely useless by then, except for maybe...

    They usually apply something like K5pro on the vrms and regular thermal paste on the dies. It doesn't matter which one you use, as long as it is some good quality paste. The thermal compound is not...

    If you removed the heatsink you have to put fresh thermal paste on both, so essentially you're repasting. Clean the dies and apply fresh paste. Don't worry about that protective plastic thing.

    So this happens only while playing videos or playing games too?

    Looks more like a driver issue.*
