    Question Asus ROG G550JK Normal Temperature?

    Hi,
    I recently purchased Asus ROG G550JK laptop, and I'm really satisfied by it's hardware and quality.
    I only have one concern, I'm not sure if my laptop is overheating more than it should.
    I used HWiNFO and HWMonitor to take some logs and statistics of the max temperature the laptop reached during 15~20 minutes of "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive" gaming, with normal video settings (the default ones).
    My system is Windows 8.1, and the room temperature is around 30 celsius here when I took the statistics.

    The first time results (with Windows recommended "Balanced" power plan):
    http://tinyurl.com/oyraldy - HWiNFO
    http://tinyurl.com/q4udsee - HWMonitor

    The second time results (with Power4Gear Hybrid "High Performance" power plan):
    http://tinyurl.com/ot8gqga - HWiNFO
    http://tinyurl.com/oa79nf9 - HWMonitor

    You can see there is a 5~ degrees improvement when I used Power4Gear plan, but still, pretty high no?
    I have more detailed CSV log if needed (temperature by time), but I think the max temperature is enough.
    I'm not a difficult guy, if you'll tell me these are normal temperature I'll be ok with it, It's just that I have a bad history with receiving a defective products, so I need to be certain.

    This is the part that gets really hot:

    Can anyone please download one of these programs, run them in the background and play 15~20 minutes in a good graphics game, and after that post here the maximum temperatures the laptop achieved, just to see we're on the same page:
    HWMonitor
    HWiNFO
    Both of the programs have portable versions without installation needed

    Thanks in advanced.

    I didn't check the links because I'm too lazy to download it (Try imgur nextime), but on my G750JZ in CS:GO the highest I get is 69°C and processor to 80°C. I play game at highest settings.

    It's not a download link, it shows Dropbox preview of the images, but I'll try imgur next time.
    So your temperature is much lower than mine, what's the temperature at your place?
    I dunno, I know I need to take it to Asus for a check up.. but I seriously don't have the possibility to be stuck without a laptop again, after I was stuck without it for a month.
    I hope someone else here with the same model as mine will approve they have the same temperature.

    ATM? It's like 35°C so really freaking hot. When it's colder it drops to 65°C or even less, but I did repaste it about 1 month ago with Collabrium Liquid Ultra which dropped my temps from games that made the GPU run at 93°C to 85°C so big difference.

    I checked the pictures you added and the CPU is indeed too high. You have to do 2 things: 1) Lower the voltage as I already said. 2) Repaste it
    And also repaste the GPU (I dropped by 10°C when I did that)

    I'm sorry for the ignorance, how can I lower the voltage? is it a standard process?
    I'm sure that what you did actually helped, but it's a bit extreme for me to pull the CPU and re-paste it, I'm not interested in destroying my warranty, which I'm afraid I might have lost when I installed a second hard disk with Caddy.
    At the moment I'm just looking for a standard / software solutions, or just to know that those temperatures are normal with my model.
    The high temperatures you've seen was on the first test I did (with windows "Balanced" power plan), when I did it again with Power4Gear High performance power plan the temperatures were lower, but still not sure it's ok.
    Is it possible that your temperatures are also lower because of the 17.3 inch model? maybe it has a better / larger cooling system?
    Thanks.

    You can lower voltage using Intel(R) Extreme Tuning Utility.
    You cannot damage your PC in any way as if you screw something up (When lowering voltage) the computer will just shut off and settings will go default, so you can test as long as you want.

    If you have problems just add me on Skype: navis995 and I'll help you personally.
    You can also add me on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Navis995

    If you have any questions just add me there and I'll help you personally anything regarding gaming laptops from hardware to software

    P.S: For GPU use MSI Afterburner and set temperature limit to 80°C and your GPU won't exceed 85°C. I did that with mine and during Witcher 3 whereas I would reach almost 90°C I don't even reach 85°C anymore.

    I'm having the same temp as Ariel, mine goes to 88º to 90º on Processor while playing CS:GO at high settings 20-40 minutes of playing

    My power plan is on "Balanced" since when i set to PowerGear or High Performance i get an additional 5º of temp.

    - Room Temp 28º with A/C
    - No dust on fans ( i just cleaned it up )

    Do you think its normal?

    No. Repasting will fix it.
