    I also have a G55. while playing games i ran hardware monitor on the background. later i found that the max
    temperature for the GPU is also around 80C.

    I've also overclocked my graphic card. Could this be a problem with the fans since i've never actually heard them running at full speed

    hey guys i just ran furmark 1.10.1 on my G55VW using the burn-in test at 1920 x 1080 for 15 min

    i got 1089 for my burn-score and the highest temp was 80 degrees

    all this was done under P4G high performance setting, (i've changed it a bit from the default setting so that it will shift back and froth from 80~100% instead of staying at 100% all the time)

    and i did not OC the gpu either. (Although according to EVGA precision, this 660m card apparently has a boost feature that boosts the core clock up to around 930 under demand..i am assuming this goes for all 660m cards)

    anyways is this result considered normal?

    Yes, 660m has a turbo frequency. At least my G75 has 950MHz of turbo, any overclock adds to this turbo frequency. I was able to reach +135 in core what is equal to 1085MHz in total. +135 appears to be the limit since I have not been able to find any software that would let me go beyond that. EVGA Precision limits me to max of +135.

    i sure hope it is. no guarantees or anything but the more i search through the forums

    the more i am convinced that this is at least around normal...as long as you haven't applied new thermal paste yourself

    should we add new thermal paste? sadly, it will avoid the warranty

    yeah =/ i am currently in process of contacting ASUS tech support to find out what the heck the temperature range is supposed to be, so i can at least determine if my laptop is actually running too hot or not. ill post as soon as i find something

    BRO, marshall pmed me, he said that it is ok if it is stable and no throttling.. he also said that gpu are meant to get hot and they can handle the heat

    did he now? thanks for letting me know! i guess we have no choice but to stick to it unless the screen starts artefacting or something lol. two years until new thermal paste!

    If it's >80C in gaming then PM me your serial number and we'll look into whether it's natural GPU manufacturing variation or something else by checking batches of components we use. There's no need to be worried and there's no guaranteed operating temperature; if it's stable then it's fine.
