    It's quite alarming to hear the fan go fast then slows down immediately after..

    Yes. My Skylake GL702VM does this all the time in that temp zone. Why, I dunno. I assumed the controller has a heavy right foot.

    A few months ago I took the case off and watched the fans, as I thought one might not be working. So I had it on it's top, lid closed, plugged into an external monitor. (I had already opened it up before for upgrades.) Here's what I learned:

    • the 3rd fan never ran. No matter the load, no matter the settings. And I couldn't find what fan it was for awhile, let alone how to control it. I finally found the GL702VM profile for NBFC and as soon as I loaded NBFC, the 3rd fan fired up. But only if it is set to a specific percentage speed. When set to "Auto" the fan never runs.
    • Worse, the 3rd fan is not adaptive when set via NBFC. IOW if set manually to 50%, it runs at 50% no matter what. This makes sense of course, given that the Auto setting is useless. But it means you have to remember to set the fan manually to 100% before gaming.
    • You know how some people say their system fans spin down to 0 sometimes, while others swear by apps like HWInfo that say a fan never goes below 1800 or 1900rpm? I watched it happen with the back cover off. All 3 fans would be stopped, while HWInfo would say the CPU fan was turning at 1900rpm. This happened several times. Something is lying like a dog in the hot August sun.

    When I repasted my CPU and GPU I noticed a few of the memory modules (I assumed that's what they were as well) were not properly pasted as well. I was going to order some thermal pads for them, but maybe I will just open her back up and throw some MX4 on them...

    and here is the heatsink I used :

    There is a guide on youtube on how to do it, and it is also previously posted in this thread but.. I mean seriously you take off the bottom cover (you know how to do that), wipe the top of that chip with a lint free cloth to make sure its clean as possible, then just stick the heatsink on and close her back up! I'm sure that the heatsink wasn't the main factor, and the repaste was, but hey every 1% helps right?

    Edit : Noticed after reading this back to myself it sounds almost condescending - was not intended, sorry - was just trying to make a point that it's dumb easy and everyone should do it. If you need to send laptop back for warranty you can just take the heatsink back off
    I did this tonight . . and WOW. Yes it works lol. Played PUBG, was getting 83 max on CPU ( super intense CPU game ) and 72 on GPU. Played overwatch, max 62 GPU and 73-75 CPU. This is a -.150 undervolt and a stock gpu Volt. Also repasted with some generic paste from newegg. I have a new tube of grizzly kryonaut, I might push my luck with that tomorrow. Also have some spare thermal pads. Going to open it up and see if anything needs replaced. Much happier adding the heatsink to the PCH as described in the picture above.

    I noticed that Asus has set PROCHOT at the max limit of 100C.

    This is why you see such high temps. Asus allows the cpu to run that high before throttling, and in the past, my laptop did shutdown because it couldn't cool down fast enough as it was pinned at 100C.

    PROCHOT 100C seems to allow us to run turbo boost longer, but it can get really hot.

    Other laptop brands have lower PROCHOT, so they throttle sooner.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but we do not want throttling right? Lower your temps via re-paste/mods and PROCHAT becomes a non issue.

    Can someone please tell me how to undervolt my GL553VD? I want to undervolt the GPU but the instructions in this thread show the one for GTX 1060 while my laptop has GTX 1050.

    I have no idea how clocking works so help would be appreciated.

    same cards basically

    Download and install msi afterburner. then top left of the core clock bar is a tiny three bar graph click on that. Its the voltage curve adjuster. You do it in there . more to it than that though.
    The 1050 has less mhz core speed that's the main diff. These cards come configured, especially 1050, with lots of voltage.

    Yea I basically just tried to estimate how much i would need to glop on there for it to "fill out" and make good contact. Couldn't be assed to wait for pads to ship haha. Just make sure youre using non-conductive, or if it is conductive, make sure its not spilling out the side.
