    Hot ambience temperature- Tips for cooling my pc

    Hello. I own the G752VY and it's summer here where I live. The temperature is absolutely not hesitating to go over 35 C. In winter my CPU temperature is around 75 C which is fine but now it goes to 90 C and it is throttling (checked with HwInfo64). I can also see my game get all choppy and laggy. The CPU starts throttling as soon as it hits 2 hours of constant gaming. I never play for more than 2 hours straight, even in winter so it's not that big of a problem to exit my game and go do something else. However I'm really worried about damaging the CPU. Can it even be damaged? I exit the game as soon as I see it stutter so I don't let my CPU stay in 90 C for long.

    What can I do to help it cool down? My fans are not blocked by anything and my laptop is on a hard, solid and straight surface.
    Thank you.

    While the CPU is protected from over temp by throttling and flat out shutting down heat is the #1 CPU killer and it will over time shorten the life of your CPU.

    Sorry to say the only way to get it cooler is a cooler ambient temp. 35C is pretty toasty! I keep my home at 23-24C during the summer and actually kick it down to 21C at night.
    Blowing a higher volume of hot air isnt going to make any difference.

    Thanks for your reply. The A/C is in my living room while my computer is on my office in a different room, thus it's not a viable option. Instead of 2 hours I'll just play for 1 hour and then stop and just browse the internet for an hour or so to let everything cool down. By the way my temps while idle seem to be different only by a few degrees C when compared to my winter temps and that's only for the CPU, the GPU doesn't seem to really care even when I'm playing.

    If whole house air conditioning is not an option for you, and if your computer system is in the office in its own exterior space (as opposed to a wide open area), then one option that would work for you is to install a 1-ton air conditioner. It can run on 120V and provide enough cooling in the space to get your ambient down to where your computer no longer throttles or becomes disabled. A window shaker will add noise to your space on any speed at all, but if you can't use your computer then what's the difference?

    If you are interested in that idea, maybe you can share a little info about the space your computer is in so we can make a more firm recommendation on the size of the A/C, 1 ton (12000 BTUh) might not be necessary, it might be overkill, and maybe a half ton or 3/4 ton would do the trick.

    you can run the Intel XTU to undervolt your CPU, as guided in this video:


    might help shave off a few celcius(es).
    and probably, underclock and undervolt your laptop GPU too. desperate times call for desperate measurements.

    Installing a whole new A/C system is going to be a very big hustle so I doubt I'll go for that.

    I do not trust myself in the slightest to use Intel XTU. I just know I'll screw something up. I'll check out the video you posted though, just for the sake of the trouble you went through to get it.


    I'll just have to live with it until summer goes away or the weather cools down I guess. Play for short periods of time and then just browse the internet letting everything cool down. I'll even try lowering my graphics settings in my games. Maybe it'll help but then again maybe not.

    Thank you all for your replies
    (And people wonder why I prefer winter....lol)

    Liquid cooling is fairly terrible when ambient (and coolant) is saturated with heat. Thermal transfer from CPU/GPU to radiator is dismal, no matter how much heat you attempt to blow off the rad.

    Air cooling isn't great either. But you always have the option of forcing more air onto the parts and more heat off of them. It can get loud, but crank all your fans up to maximize airflow across the hot parts and out of the chassis. You can even remove the side panel(s) and aim a large room fan onto the motherboard. Perhaps aim another room fan out the window and yet another into the room, airflow across the entire room might help remove some PC heat, lol. Moving your PC into a cooler room (in the basement or wherever) might also be a good option.

    Underclocking and undervolting can go a long way. If what you're doing can run well enough on half a PC.

    No. Not a whole new air conditioning system. A window shaker.

    SOMETHING LIKE THIS

    You slide a window onto it and plug it in. Not any hassle at all. Takes 20 minutes. It's harder to install an AIO cooler into your computer.

    Probably won't help you much but upgrading to BIOS 303 has dropped my temps 5C to 8C? Worth a try my Ambient temps are around 26C and I'm Idling at 36 - 38C I can't help you with Gaming since I don't. I know that sounds crazy I keep checking and yea my temps are that low on a G752 VY

    Nice idea but the problem is that my office doesn't have a window but instead it has a door that leads to a balkony.

    I'll update my BIOS to 303 and report back. I know that the problem is the weather itself but I'll report back anyway to share my experience with the new BIOS version for anyone who's skeptical about updating.

    To be honest I didn't really think they'd release a new one after 213. It says that it optimizes system performance. Anyone know exactly how?
