    GX501 cpu overheat issue

    Well, as per title, GX501 having overheat issue

    i live in singapore. the ambient temperature is pretty high like 28-32 degree Celsius.
    my gaming temperature on high end games like tomb raider, batman arkham knight, need for speed payback are very high.
    my cpu temp can go as high as 99 degree celcius.

    went to asus repair center in singapore and what they did was clean the fan and repaste. the temp was not improving and feedback from asus was within specification.

    my warranty is until oct 2018. hope it didnt go bad by then

    ps: tried to undervolt cpu by 130mv... doesnt help at all

    Wierd, I dont have issues. never reach 99C. GX501 is not a good robust gaming laptop. It simple can't.

    I suggest turn on Eco mode in ROG Gaming center. for better temp. but GTX1060 level performance ( or worst )


    My entire life of regret is buying GX501VI. 2699$ from US + TAX, end up buying a marketing gimmick. it just work, but not as advertised. Alot of issues as well.

    I manage to overclock my Zephyrus to match the performance of ROG STRIX-GTX1080-O8G-GAMING.
    Which peak at 1936Mhz GPU Clock, and memory setting by default.
    I keep my room temperature aT 22C. With thermal grizzly Conductnout (liquid metal) applied to the cpu and gpu on zephyrus as well.

    Most of my AAA games at High settings manage to reach 340Fps+- , with maximum temperature at 72C. I see no problem with such high clock speed, but the power adapter is hot for sure. Keeping the room at 22C require some energy as well. Just for fun btw.

    when something is advertised and sold as something far better than it originally is,

    making customers who eventually purchased it go: why did i buy into this advertising bull**** for this crap? i shouldda known betta.


    TL;DR: a POS (piece of Shi-) marketed as POG (Piece of Gold)
    no siggy, saw stuff that made me sad.

    even they advertise that it should play with the pg348q (34" monitor) via the type c connector it does but the g sync as to be turn off on the laptop and the graphic setting as to be set at low
    that is one more reason that i say marketing gimmick

    and i wish i could repaste the laptop as well but i do travel a lot and liquid metal is not recommended if the laptop is carry in backpack

    I have a question regarding the thermal grizzly conductonaut liquid metal you used sir, isn't it bad for aluminium heat sinks? Is the heat sink used in the gx501 not aluminium?
    The reason I asked is because I'm planning to use liquid metal on my gx501 but I'm not sure for the life of me what kind of metal is used on the gx501 heatsink.
