    Can't tell you whether the two are related....though I think it's unlikely.....but consider the Asus Update failure a stroke of luck. That's the riskiest way to update the BIOS and it should be avoided. (Honestly, I'd uninstall Asus Update completely. One thing that can slow down your system is this kind of junk running in the background all the time.) If you want to update your G74 BIOS, use the EasyFlash method.

    Cheers, and thanks for the quick reply.

    It was a stretch but I was hoping I was simply misunderstanding everyone else's troubles.

    GPU Throttling..

    Hi,

    I'm new here but have read many of the topics regarding this throttling issue so many of us face. I have a G73JW notebook which I believe has a GPU throttling issue rather than a CPU throttling one.

    From my observations, the 460M GTX nvidia card in my notebook which runs at default speeds of 675/1250mhz (Core/Memory), seems to be GPU throttled down to a core speed of 337mhz. This occurs once my gpu temperature reaches 93'C which is in less than a minute of running MSI GPU Kombuster - ( I have attached a screenshot of this)

    The same issue affects me in pretty much any game I play such as Skyrim, COD etc

    I have checked and noted the GPU clock speed throttle down using MSI Afterburner as well as noting the same 93'C temperature mark where the throttling begins. - (I have attached a screenshot of this too)

    I should mention my notebook is around 2 years old and I have blown the air vents and done what I can to ensure the laptop stops overheating, however I may just need to buy a cooling pad in the end...

    I also want to mention my brother has an Asus G73JH notebook which had temperatures that soared up to 114'C causing the laptop to continually shutdown as the gpu's internal threshold temp had been reached. I fixed this issue by updating both the Bios and VBios of the machine. The temperature now reaches a maximum of 84'C using Kombuster and the shutdown issue has been solved. I should mention that at this temperature no GPU throttling takes place.

    Now, I've tried using ThrottleStop however I'm unsure if I'm using it correctly as it hasn't been able to solve my GPU throttling issue. I simply installed the application, ran it and ensured BD PROCHOT was disabled. I then pressed Turn On and minimized it.

    My issue is still however present as I've tested this with Kombuster as well as playing Skyrim and observing the throttling taking place using MSI Afterburner.

    When I first launch Skyrim my FPS are around 40FPS until about 4-5 minutes later where the FPS will have now dropped to 15-25FPS when being in the same area, with more or less the same amount of load placed on the GPU as to when I was seeing 40FPS. Quickly alt-tabbing and checking Afterburner's monitor, notice the GPU core speed graph jumping up and down between 675 and 338mhz. Also note the GPU temp at around 92/93'C.

    This is why I believe I have a GPU throttling issue, now PLEASE CAN SOMEBODY HELP ME FIX IT!!!

    EDIT: Forgot to mention I have in the past updated to bios 203 which I believe is still the most current. I have yet to find an updated vBios for this notebook, therefore it still uses the default factory vBios.

    That sounds like a case of GPU throttling to me. While on most notebooks buying a cooling pad helps tremendously, the ROG notebooks use a top-fed cooling design in which the air is drawn through the speaker grille. So, unless you put the cooling pad facing down on the keyboard, I don't think it will help much. I have a cooling pad, and my GPU temps with and without it vary by 1 C, at best.

    The 93 C throttling point is likely the programmed BIOS throttle point for the NVIDA cards. I would not try to override it, as 93 C is pretty hot, even for a video card. The Throttle-stop mod is designed for those whose CPUs are throttling at much lower temperatures, where clearly the heat is not the issue. Besides which, it is a CPU, not a GPU thermal tweak.

    For the GTX460M, make sure that you are running the latest NVIDIA drivers, which is 301.42: http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/44971

    That can sometimes help, as it will run the card cooler at idle, and possibly adjust the fan-ramps under load. You already said that you had the BIOS updated to the most recent, so it cannot be that. The only remaining possibility I can see is dsiassembling the notebook and really cleaning out the fans and repasting the GPU.

    The final proposition I just gave is a really difficult task. Try cleaning the fans and the radiators before repasting the GPU. If the problem persists, let us know, and maybe one of the Desktop OC'ers can give you some advice in how to paste a GPU, since I have no experience in such things.

    Good luck!

    I just bought a G53SX a few months ago (I regretted since the G55 was almost released but I just couldn't wait, and it was pretty "cheap" in my country) Anyways, I am pretty noob about this issue, can you please help me? Which BIOS do I download, O use DXDIAG on my laptop and it says I have G53SX but I only see a G53SW or G74SX/SW BIOS link.

    Is there a way I can contact you for more info about this? I haven't done anything on the laptop though and I haven't played any game that is mentioned in your thread.

    Hi there Skye,

    You can grab all the latest drivers and bios updates for your Asus products from their website. Here's a direct link for your laptop.

    http://support.asus.com/Troubleshoot...lXj3U41&no=822

    That post details how to update your bios on your laptop. The 'Download' tab next to it will give you the download page for the bios and drivers for your G53SX

    As an FYI, rebooting your laptop and pushing delete will get you into the bios. The first bios screen that loads up should display your current Bios.

    Regards
