    Strix scar edition GL703VM hot and loud ?

    Evening folks, last week I purchased this laptop;

    https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produc...-746-_-Product

    After receiving it, to my surprise, I noticed that on top of producing as much heat as a jet, it also made the same sound!

    Jokes aside, the laptop is very hot and loud.

    I did unvervolt the cpu and the gpu and while it helped, the temps are still high.

    I contacted Asus and according to them everything is fine and it fits in their standards.


    At this point, I'm ready to simply void the warranty and remove and replace the toothpaste they use.

    I'd like to know if anyone has any picture of the inside of laptop? I removed the backplate yesterday and found that the the copper heatsink have some kind of black backplate.

    Anyway, if anybody has any images/how to guide, I will be grateful!

    It won't. I have the latest, which is 306 I believe and it didn't change anything.

    Try to game without the bottom cover. If this helps, try to drill some small holes for the fans ( search the forums about drilling holes for the gl702vs and check the awesome results )

    Temps are between 85 and 90. While it may be acceptable according to Asus, it's unacceptable for the consumer.

    I mean, if we(the consumer) pay over 2k for a laptop oriented toward gaming, I expect A) To be able to game more than an hour before my fingers burn and B) to have the proper setup to cool/maintain longevity of said laptop.

    I may sound entitled, but when you buy a product, you expect it to perform to minimum standards.

    Imagine buying a sport cart, paying premium for it only for your engine to get so hot when driving to the grocery store that you have to turn it off before continuing.

    u dont have to turn it off to cool it down , it can handle it self and u dont have to expect i7-7700hq to be cooled easly in a laptop .. these temps are normal for this cpu a cross other trademarks too.. ur hopes are just high .. even intel sayes these temps are normal until 100c.

    My girlfriend has a laptop with a 1050ti and a 7700hq. It's a MSI laptop and let me assure you, Asus could take some notes about cooling.

    Two(2) heatpipes is not enough.

    While playing the exact same game on the exact same settings, my GF laptop barely break the 70 degree mark. Yet, mine is 10-15 higher? Come on.

    Repasted with Gelid, 15 degrees cooler, I can't believe Asus sells *gaming laptop* with such a poor job done.
