    G55VW cooling performance & gpu temp

    Hi, i've just gotten my hands on the G55VW yesterday
    and I was trying to compare the performance of this machine to my previous rig
    by running GTA 4 on it.

    Now my previous model was the G51JX, which ran MUCH hotter than any of the later G series
    (it was before the huge cooling solution was implemented)
    When I play GTA 4 it would often reach up to temperatures nearing 100 degrees Celsius (for most games actually)
    So I was curious as to see what the highest temp. mark would be with this machine (GPU temp strictly)

    From what I have read on the internet so far I did not expect the temperature to exceed beyond 70 degrees,
    maybe low 70s at max. However after prolonged playing I've found that the GPU temp had reached a whooping 80 degrees

    Now I'm not exactly complaining about the cooling solution; it keeps the computer really cool at relatively silent fan noise level. (compared to my previous laptop anyway) I was just wondering if this kind of temperature was normal for the G55VW under heavy gaming load, to see if mine had any defects in it by any chance. Did anyone have similar experiences when running heavy load games? If so, how high was your GPU temp?

    Thanks in advance!

    For me about 65 degrees Celcius from running Tera on high settings.

    Fans get quite loud at that point.

    I have the G75, and I did not exceed the 67 C even when max overclocked... I know they have different cooling systems, but such difference is huge. Check if our fans are working properly, check if cooling vents are clean and not obstructed, check everything, 100 C is not good. I have the 660m, which GPU do you have ?

    I've read that the 660 runs A LOT cooler then the 670, so with his temps I'd gather he has the 670.

    Maybe 670m and G55 are a combination of both more heat characteristics and this is why he reaches 100 C. In either way, I would do some research since that are very high temps. Maybe check playing with your back cover out and let it ventilate a bit more.

    hey guys sorry for the confusion lol
    the 100 degrees is what i've observed when using the G51JX, my previous laptop

    with the G55VW the maximum temperature i've reached is 80 degrees
    also i have the 660m, i do not believe there is a 670m variant for the G55 series (as far as i know)

    Ah, now it can be a bit more possible. 80 is a bit high for me personally, but don't stop checking for possible fans that are not throttling or something else. Run Furmark an tell me the temps, cause games also heat up the CPU and the G55 has a only one heatsink I think.
