    Hi all,
    I used my GL703VM a few months. I change Thermal Paste on CPU & GPU. A few weeks ago i changed also Thermal Pads and use Cooling Pad Coolermaster Notepal U3 Plus. I clean my ROG from dust once a month, but i still get problems with high temps.
    When i use my notebook normally (firefox or Excell) i have 43-55°C. When i playing games (Cities: Skylines, House Flipper, GTAV, Euro Truck Simulator 2, FIFA 18) i have temps 88-95°C sometimes up to 100°C in FIFA or ETS2. Also i got low FPS as for this specs. In C:S i got 25-45FPS, in House Flipper its 40-60FPS, GTAV 40, ETS2 its 20-60FPS, FIFA 18 give me only 40FPS. I think it should be above 50FPS up to 120FPS (i got 120HZ screen) with this specification (I7-7700HQ 2,8GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 1060 6GB).

    Can anybody tell me what i have to do with my ROG to get more FPS, put temps down and make it quieter?

    I think 43-55 is totally fine in idlish state.
    1. Disable turbo boost for cpu and allow it to downclock when not under load . You can also undervolt it if you really feel the need. You won't see any loss in performance.
    GPU:
    1) Never allow gpu to reach 85C - it will throttle and cut fps in half . Cpu will throttle at 90C i think - so always keep below .
    2) Set gpu power mode to adaptive
    3) Use custom voltage graph for gpu
    4) Never play with uncapped fps , it will allow your gpu to downclock and cooldown when under light or no load. You can cap your framerate with msi afterburner in Rivatuner or in game console.
    5) Set lower settings for things like ambient occlusion , anti aliasing , multisampling . They are very gpu intensive and can make your temps go throught the roof .
    6) If you are playing single player games i would just cap them at 60fps + lower graphics settings and you laptop will stay cool and quiet .

    Post Drilling holes in bottom case ASUS ROG GL502VM Part1

    Hi! i here again, in previous post i write how i make undervolting to decrease temperature, all be OK before came hot summer, cooling solution cant do work.
    First i try replace thermal paste to Arctic MX-4, for fun i also test cheapest thermal paste i have (КПТ-8, 0.7$ for 10g tube).
    Cheap КПТ-8 - CPU 75С, GPU 78C

    So use more expensive thermal paste is good idea.
    Next i watch on thermal paste mark, i use small amount of thermal paste and i found curve on heat-sink

    It real bad for normal cooling, also some thermal pads not touching GPU memory, i bend heat-sink and replace thermal pads.
    So now i do my best in heat-sink (maybe try liquid metal in future).

    First i do tests in all possible conditions with bottom case and without:
    • Flat on table
    • Cooling stand 5cm (just small boxes under back rubber pads)
    • Cooling stand 5cm + external 120mm fan
    • Cooling stand 4mm
    • Cooling stand 4mm + external 120mm fan


    Also i measure room temperature, it make measurements more accurate.
    Results incredible, -10C without bottom case !!!!!!!!!

    So my chose drilling
    I make some draw to make it more pretty

    I am just gonna share my experience here, hopefully someone will find it useful.

    My GL502VMK was good for 1 year, stock temps GPU was 70-80°C and CPU was 78-87°C, while undervolted my CPU was always between 70-82°C with no need to disable Turbo Boost or uv the GPU (which is still at 70-80°C at stock settings, kinda impressing). Anyway, after 1 year my undervolted CPU temp suddenly increased to 75-88°C with general gaming (mostly AA games and indies), while some bigger games (The Witcher 3, KDeliverance, XCOM 2, AC Origins) pushed it to 90-98°C, which is way too dangerous. I even reached 100°C on one core but the laptop didn't shutdown... weird. Now I am sending the laptop back to an Amazon Repair Center so they can "fix" it (under warranty). I assume they will clean it and repaste, but I am 99% sure that it won't be enough. Well hopefully I will either get my laptop fixed (for real) or a refund. In the latter case I will just wait for the rtx 2060 mobile or maybe will just get a desktop, these laptop brands all have trash design, overheating problems, terrible displays and are super expensive (also considering you have to work in order to fix the laptop problems).

    It's sad 'cause I really enjoyed the GL502VMK design (Titanium Gold), the quality of the G-Sync Screen and the performance, but I was hoping to keep the laptop for at least 6 years and with these temps I am pretty sure the CPU or something else close to it would easily fail... and replacing the mobo costs nearly as the full laptop (no kidding).

    Anyway I am done with Asus, no official statement about the overheating problems and no updated drivers. I am sure someone from Asus read this topic and saw all the unsatisfied customers here. Problem is they still didn't fix the overheating, even the new GL503 and GL504 gaming laptops (with the "brand new designed cooling system") are overheating. This shows their engineers really don't know how to make laptops with normal cooling. The only thing I can do now is spread the word and tell people to not buy Asus products, especially laptops.

    I bought my GL702VS 6-7 months ago after trying a few other gaming notebooks that sounded like vacuum cleaners even when surfing (msi, hp ...). All in all my gl702vs is silent when surfing and watching movies but some games really makes the fans going though it does not sound to bad compared to the ones i tried before.

    The gl702vs can throttle a lot when it gets hot so i repasted the cpu and gpu and added 11W/mK thermal pads everywhere else. Benchmarks went up quite a lot up to around gtx1080 max-q levels. But some games like old Crysis and Witcher really makes the gl702vs heat up and throttle.

    So i did like this:

    - games NOT heating the gl702vs to much i run at close to maximum g-sync threshold around 117 fps capped by RTSS (see blurbusters g-sync guides)
    - games heating the hell out of the gl702vs i restrict framerates a lot more, Crysis i run at 60 fps max and it works well, other games at other thresholds

    No matter what you do thin slimmed gaming laptops will get hot, really hot and throttle but capping the fps with RTSS (rivatuner statistics server) did wonders for me. Crysis was easy to cap since it runs at 60 fps whenever g-sync and v-sync is on (i am not sure g-sync even works without v-sync) and for me 60 fps is ok. Black Mesa and most older games i run at 117 fps .

    So those of you having problems with heating and throttling try RTSS and cap the fps for the game until it no longer throttles to bad, 117 fps g-sync is amazing but 60 fps g-sync is not to bad either at least not when compared to only v-sync/adaptive v-sync/fast v-sync or no v-sync and horrible tearing.

You can get a used bottom cover for $20 on ebay. I bought one and am going to see if I can do something with it. Hoping it would look something like this:

    Ok so I finally got this done after all this time. I made a huge cut out in the back, double taped the alienware backing on temporarily to see temp improvements. I found I wasn't seeing much improvements at all with the vents and the laptop sitting flat on the desk. I then bought the coolermaster t3 plus laptop cooler and put noctua fans on it, and modded the included fan controller to work with the noctua fans to shoot cool air directly into those vents. This made a huge difference. It appears to do the job real well thus far and my temps are stable without undervolting and leaving the cpu performance state at 100%.. I also found that adding a nice layer of thermal paste and really rubbing it in on the heat sink side first seemed to have solved these crazy deltas in cpu temps I was getting. Could of also been a poor mount on it, I tried to straighten out the flimsy copper that could possibly cause the heat sinks to not sit flat.

    With all this, and running the laptop cooler fans, I am able to to get a noticeable reduction at load probably greater than 10-15c, so much so, that I notice the intel turbo is able to hold throughout the uningine benchmark with multiple runs. Of course uningine is not that cpu bound. I still got to try other games but I think I finally solved this. We need to turn it into an alienware lol. Going to add some glue to make it permanent, along with some kind of dust filtering for the vents. But I'm really happy with the results thus far and I was about to throw in the towel on this thing. I tested holding the laptop with the vent and it isn't as sturdy...but sturdy enough to hold. Definitely a huge improvement with this mod and the laptop cooler. My idle temps use to be 43...it now sits at around 38. Load temps could get up to 85 after prolonged gaming. Now it is high 60s to lower 70s...keep in mind this is no undervolting, and allowing turbo and 100% cpu processor state...not using vsync either.

    Well it's just not the best cooling design. But to be fair many gaming laptops have these issues and they need to address them by undervolting, running fans at high rpm, etc. It's really the 7700 that runs hot in this thing. The 1070 in this laptop is awesome and would run low / mid 60s for me even without mods. It's the cpu that's the issue and that seems to run hot in mine initially.

    On the other hand cutting out some airvents under the under the cooling fan intakes would probably help a lot, i will try gaming with the bottom off and if my gl702vs runs at least 5C cooler i think i will cut out some airvents myself also in the next months (probably voided the warranty anyway when i repasted).

    GL702VM Fan 3 never runs?

    Bought this laptop used, and have been seeing trottling while gaming (surpriiise). Anyway, I had the bottom off to see the temperature decrease, but also noticed that the small fan (Fan 3) never runs. Is there a way I can manually control the fan to check whether it is dead or not?

    Installed Notebook Fan Control, and was able to adjust the fan manually, so atleast it works, however why won't it run automatically?
