ASUS G73SW-BST6 Down To Earth Review [56k Warning] - Page 4

post #31 of 35
It's not worth buying if they watered the GPU down. Personally, I think it's wrong to continue to call it the GTX 460M if it has different specs from what Nvidia's site states.

MY PROBLEM on my ASUS G73SW-BST6 (best buy model)

I live in Brasil... so I have a MUCH BIGGER problem.... the warranty is valid only there in USA...

I opened my laptop, REPASTED, with Arctic Silver 5, did ALL things correctly, JUST TO FIND OUT THAT ----->>> THE GPU FAN WAS BLOCKED!!!!!!

acctually, I have the notebook for 3 months... and it was working FINE before... I used to play for hours, and a couple of times I checked the temperature, and it was FINE... like, 10 HOURS PLAYING it wouldn't go over 67, 70º C.....

NOW, IT's GETTING 90 with 10 minutes playing... THE FAN SIMPLY STOPPED WORKING!!! WHY???? its NOT DUST, IM SURE! VERY SURE!...

NOW, here in BRASIL there ISN'T, simply, ISN'T anything that FITS this motherboard... NO COOLER FAN is compatible...

I think i'm gonna have to BUY a new fan FROM USA 3rd part sites... and wait for like MONTHS...

very, VERY disappointing...
