    Please and as I mentioned do NOT set the settings in the Turbo Power Limits window I had attached (the last screenshot) - it was just an informational one for what I set but I don't have CPU heat issues.
    Hi, Its better than before, i got 99 degrees Celsius before, however i belive its still not normal, most people get 80s with an undervolt not like mine getting 90s still, im planing to send the laptop for its re-pasting, but they'll take over 10 days to do it so im waiting for the right time to send it through and hopefully that will help.

    What is your CPU temps with this undervolt?

    Also, make sure to force Turbo Boost for the fans in the asus rog utility (gaming center)

    If I play CPU intensive games, my core temps are around 85-90c
    I have repasted my laptop otherwise it would likely be 96-97c like yours
    If your GPU is around 80-85c it is fine TBH - ideally CPU should be below 95c otherwise you can get some thermal throttling at times.

    You have to find the right stable undervoltage - the lower the better - maybe reduce your core frequency for the last 2 in FIVR at 35 or 34 instead of 36 - TBH I tried before and didn't notice a big difference from 39 - it might depend on the games of course but it should not be too different and will help with temps.

    Am having issues connecting with this website - took me a day to be able to log back in. not sure what's going on with these forums TBH - I keep getting redirected and it's failing at times - tried many things. So if I don't reply it is because I cannot connect just FYI.

    Hi, Just finished chatting to Asus, they make it difficult everyday for me to like the laptop i chose.
    They can do the re-pasting for me even though they say it might not do anything, which leads me to think, will they actually change it or just send it back?


    Anyway, i requested to use my thermal paste a few days ago, now when it comes to finalize everything they tell me that they will use factory paste again and i am not allowed to uswe my paste, then whats the use of sending it back?

    BTW, Its getting hotter in my country, and at no surprise the Laptop is rising its temps with the surface being way to hot again.

    Also this emailing Asus has gone on for almost 2 months and they still refuse to sort the issue out.

    If it is warmer then set a lower turbo ratio limit value for 5-6 cores or even all of them - I would try 36 and even 35 or 34 - it should bring down the temps a bit more. Try this at least - go with 34 on the 5-6 fields and 39 on the ones above (in the FIVR window).

    As far as repasting, am not surprised about Asus's reply - I would take the laptop with the paste to a computer shop that has great reviews in your city / country and get it done there.

    This is what I would recommend:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    or
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    and some pads to replace the original ones around the GPU and CPU cores

    or / and you could also try one of these below - there are various ones on the market and some work better than others - not too bad in the end especially if the temps in your country can be high.

    Thanks for your replies, Asus said if i change the paste they will void my warranty, so theres no solution, i will get on the phone with them tomorrow and ask them to allow this else i want them to tell my reseller to refund the money.

    I was planning on getting the Thermal Grizzly, i had a apare 1g tube but it wont be enough so ill get the 5g if Asus agrees to use my thermal paste.

    The big question i have, im not sure if you know, but around the cpu and GPU, i saw a tear down video show that they actually used thermal paste instead of pads?

    Any photos of how much pads i should get/measurements?

    Thanks in advance

    Thermal Grizzly is very good but I like the pads I linked in my previous reply ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CK9SHZG ) - they are not messy like paste and they are seriously almost as efficient than the paste - I tried them and like them - I do recommend them and would be easier for you. I bought both sizes of pads and then cut what's necessary - read the reviews, they are very good ones.

    As I linked previously I used these silicon pads ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074K55CWF ) for the side transistors and they are great ( buy one set only ) - you will need to clean the old ones of course before applying these. There are videos on how to this on Youtube - let me know if you can't find them ( search for "asus zephyrus gx501 repaste" ) - it is close enough to the laptop you have - check these 3:

    You also might want to get these:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0718ZM6R1
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007TOR08

    I did it for my own laptop and voided the warranty but am used to do these on desktops and laptops - key is to read up and learn and be patient when doing it - you cannot rush it and you have to be meticulous so make sure to watch videos carefully more than once

    Hope this helps - btw, the external fan I mentioned above is a viable alternative when outside temps are high - just saying.

    Thanks for the help, i Appreciate it, i watched a few videos, i have an idea now, im contacting Asus to let them know im sending my own thermal paste and ill get thermal pads. Hopefully they do it.

    Thanks again for the help. ill update this when i hear back form them.

    Also, those external fans are good, i might get them for my brother Alienware and see if they work well on my system as well.
