Hot enough to cook an egg!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello I am new to this site so I guess il just tell my problem. I have recently brought an Asus N53SV and its normally hitting around 75-80 Celsius (I see the temperature from NVIDIA INSPECTOR) while playing runescape/browsing and it seems a bit too hot. I am not sure how fast the fan is going or how to make it go faster, I am not sure what else left to say Thanks smile.gif

Which temps are those?

CPU or GPU?
I'm just going to assume CPU since you changed motherboard recently, that could be your problem, you need to properly apply thermal compound. As far as thermal compound less is more, the thinness the layer is the better, don't want to think you didn't changed the thermal compound while switching Mobos.

What's your ambient temperatures?

It sounds like a GPU issue he said Nvidia Inspector- If thats the case and it is your gpu aka Video card just download a program called Saphire Trixx ( free) go under Fan profile and Increase it to around 50%-70% during gaming! That schould hopefully resolve some issues for you. You also have another program called Msi Afterburner-does the same thing as trixx!~ Hope this helps
If this is for a cpu then iam sorry for the mistake lol

This is really sounding more like a laptop.
In which case the temps are fine, laptops always run hot.
(Don't leave laptops on surfaces for prolonged periods of time, linen etc...)

My laptops never run hotter than 40C ( 104F, ambient this time of year is 90F.. so only 14F higher, not bad ) on light games such as Runescape or general web browsing. All of them, be it my Macbooks, Alienwares, Latitudes, Toughbooks, and a few Sagers, all run in the same general area with such light loads, some are running on onboard video and some with more discrete options both AMD and Nvidia, doesn't matter with such light loads.


Doing a quick google for "Asus N53SV overheating" and it seems a good portion of the N series laptops from Asus have overheating issues, and lot of search results with that particular model as well. I would suggest, since you said you just bought it I'm going to assume retail, that you return it and find a different laptop as it seems that line of them all have overheating and fan problems.

If you don't have the option of returning it for whatever reason and don't mind voiding the warranty if there is one ( on the assumption you got it second hand ), then you could take it apart and replace the thermal paste and thermal pads to see if you can yield better results.

75 to 80C is entirely too hot for browsing the net regardless of the fact that it's a laptop...

stop using the laptop on your bed/comforter where you have both the intake and exhaust of the laptop both blocked up.... get a laptop pad so there is ventilation...

Every once in a while (6-12 months) I strip my laptop and replace the thermal paste (which has then been burned completely to pieces by that point) with new Arctic Silver compound. It might be  good idea for you to do so.
