    Rog g750jm, is 55c minimum and 66c Maximum temp while idle normal?

    I wonder if having 55c minimum and 66c Maximum temp while idle is normal? im just surfing the internet and monitor the temp with HWInfo .. the current temp now is 57c..im new to ROG , before i Used Asus K series. so i decide to ask here from a more experienced users

    Hi FreddyRivera, and welcome to the forum.

    I would say, that's pretty much normal for your JM model.
    You have to realize, your G750JM is using Nvidia Optimus, which has it's advantages, and disadvantages.

    1. Advantage: somewhat longer battery life. (That can be debatable)
    2. Disadvantage: CPU runs around 10C hotter than non Optimus models (because the use of the Intell HD4600 graphics being used at the same time)

    There's one little trick that I do to balance out the two.

    1. Go into the Nvidia control panel.
    2. Manage 3D setting.
    3. Program setting.
    4. Go to Internet Explorer, FireFox, or what ever program you what to change, then change the preferred graphic processor to "High-performance Nvidia Processor".
    (I would do this for all your games too)

    Doing this little trick, and it will balance out the temps between the two.
    My average temps while surfing the web is around 44c.

    Hope this helps you my friend?
    Come back and let us know if this works for you.
    Good luck, and good gaming!

    FreddyRivera, if you have other background processes running, like when you get a new laptop and continually are installing new programs, music, pictures, videos, the indexing programs will run constantly trying to keep up.

    I configure Windows indexing control panel to index nothing, and that stops background updates from it.

    Attachment 49315

    If you have iTunes, Cyberlink, etc media software, I also un-configure all the folders it wants to search, and manually do indexing when I am ready - mostly I don't care for them to build a library as I remove disks and add/remove media so the index isn't helpful - it just wastes resources.

    And, follow GottiBoi55's suggestions, get the discrete GPU taking the load off of the CPU Intel iGPU to keep the CPU die heat down.

    And, during normal computer use, the Balanced Power Plan is best, as it runs the CPU at 0%-100% depending on load, it lets the CPU cool down between loads - using Advanced set the Power plan CPU to 0%/100% Min/Max

    FreddyRivera, which processes specifically? If there are Asus processes running, note their names and uninstall them if you don't use them. The Game First process isn't needed per se, nor is Asus Power4Gear, Splendid, Live, Update, etc.

    Same for Nvidia background processes - uninstall Geforce Experience - it's only useful for ShadowPlay and if you aren't using it uninstall it. You can do your own Game feature tuning, the Nvidia settings are a nice start, but I always end up increasing some settings and decreasing others.

    You only need the Nvidia Drivers, Nvidia Physx, the other items are optional and unneeded for most of us. After uninstalling the other stuff from Programs and Features you can use Nvidia Custom => Clean Install for only installing what you need moving forward.

    McAfee isn't recommended, Asus used to bundle a 120 day demo of Norton Internet Security which puts a lighter load on the system - uninstall McAfee / reboot, and download a copy of the new 2015 Norton Security demo for 30 days and try that.

    The Windows indexer is a big user of resources as you install new stuff, and the prefetch/fetch system stuff is too at boot up - turn that all off. Disable Hibernate that will turn off Fast Startup, and free up disk space on your C partition.

    47c isn't bad

    he processes you mention is exactly what my background uses are... so okay i will remove the Asus one first cause i never use them.. anyhow after monitoring gta 5 for 2hr.. i found out.. its not too bad.. range between 60-70c.. and never pass 80 or 90 which i read on other forum about playing heavy games on laptop. About mcafee.. Is kaspersky any better? ... anyhow. thanks for your help sir! now having my ASUS ROG is much better without having to think that it is burning inside.

    You welcome my friend.
    Your getting the same results that I'm getting while surfing the web.
    I get around 80c-83c for maximum temps on average while gaming, and anywhere between 68c-75c for average temps.
    For example 73c average temp for FarCry4, and 68c average temp while playing Wolfenstein The New Order.
    Hopefully you will get similar results.
    That little trick really takes some of the stress off the CPU.

    Good luck, and good gaming my friend!
