    G75VW Thermal Issues Repair

    Hello everyone,

    Over the past couple of weeks, my 2012 G75VW has been overheating. Shocker right!
    I would regularly see idle temperatures of 80°C and load temperatures of 100°C, causing system shutdown.
    A basic virus scan would be intensive enough to cause the system to overheat.

    I completed the repair with a screwdriver, thermal paste, compressed air, and at one point a drill...
    The screws holding the screen were stripped, so I drilled them out.
    I honestly didn't find this repair difficult, daunting yes, but difficult no.

    I also ended up drilling some holes in the bottom cover, just above the fans.
    This reduced the temperature by a further 5°C

    • Before: 80-100°C
    • After: 47-78°C

    This repair put some new life into the old girl and I would recommend any G75 owners still around to do the same.

    The video I followed:
