    GL504GM can't control fan speed

    Hi folks, I have a GL504GM (i7 8750H, GTX1060 model.)

    Its fans have been spinning rather slowly these past few months, or maybe a year now. After searching a bit here and other places too, it seems that most people have the complete opposite problem, that is their fans are too loud/locked at max speed, so I thought I'll start a new thread. Man I'd love it if my fans are locked at max speed compared to this lol.

    So my problem is, I can't really change my fans' speed. They seem to spin at the same speed regardless of the fan settings (silent/balanced/overboost), and they spin slowly. The result is quite obvious, I easily reach 85°+ temps whenever I play moderately demanding games. It even sits at 50-60° while idling. Cycling through the modes to "refresh" the overboost ramps up the fans a tiny bit then they slow down again immediately.

    I've undervolted as well, my stable spot is only around -100 mV. I even disabled turboboost, with turboboost on my temps reach 90° easily. I use the 311 bios because, well, I can't use throttlestop on 312.

    Things I've done:

    - Using different bios versions (307, 309, 310, 311)
    - Undervolting both the cpu and gpu, disabling turboboost
    - Repasting
    - Cleaning the fans
    - Using different ROG gaming center versions, armoury crate too
    - Raising the back of the laptop
    - Using a cooling pad (that actually made the temps worse)
    - Setting the max processor state in windows to 95-99%
    - Setting the cooling policy in windows to active/passive, it made no difference
    - Some other things I forgot, will edit the post maybe

    Things I haven't done:

    - Factory reset
    - Reinstall fresh windows
    - Update windows to the latest version (I'm using 20h1)
    - Replace the actual fans, or bring it to an asus service center to have the fans replaced

    This laptop is 3 years old. The fans used to work well and the different fan speed modes were working too. Are my fans faulty/worn out and need to be changed? Or maybe my windows installation is too cluttered now that it messes up the fan control?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi there,
    Please kindly send your device to our service center for further examination.
    I think the point would be the fan not speeding up in performance and turbo mode and then the temperature would rise.
    It would be helpful if you can record a short video of this matter for the engineers to check on it.
    Thank you.
