    I'm not sure if it climbs to about 55 and then the fans start, I'll take a look next time it does it. Right now I'm at idle and GPU is 44, with the fan basically silent, and it hasn't spun up randomly today. It seems sometimes it does it all day and sometimes it never does it at all.

    When the fan is going crazy it's at something like 44 degrees too.

    I spoke too soon, it's just started going like crazy. Temps didn't go above about 45 as far as I could tell.

    possible solution

    I found something that seems to make a small difference. If you go to power options -> advanced power settings -> processor power management -> system cooling policy -> passive the fans become a bit quieter but the system is a little warmer. If you're willing to make that trade off it should make the fans a bit quieter.

    Unfortunately that doesn't seem to have any effect for me...

    this might be how asus programmed the thermal policy.
    that is, it will let the gpu get warmer and warmer, then spin very fast to cool it down, instead of letting the fan run constantly at low rpm. i dunno.

    it might be better for you all to email tech support and ask the engineering team if they can reprogram the bios.

    It's definitely not intentional, my CPU right now is 42 degrees and my GPU is 41, and the GPU fan is spinning at full speed and has been since 20 minutes ago

    Also the max speed fan has a very bad effect on my battery life, the estimated time left plummets a few minutes after the fan starts spinning

    Hi 0x542,

    I have the same problem.
    When I get to my Notebook and the room is cold, the GPU fan often goes to full speed when the system is idling. When the room has warm temperatures, the GPU fan makes no problems at idle.

    Very annoying problem.
