Laptop is cooler without keyboard, fan works way harder

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an Asus A53SV laptop, which has a new thermal paste, is fully cleaned etc. The CPU usually reached 85+ degrees celsius when maxing out both CPU and GPU usage. However, after opening up the keyboard as seen in the picture, the temperatures reaches a max. of 75C. (The air intake is usually below the keyboard)



It would be awesome, however now I've noticed that after gaming, when idling even for 30+ minutes the fan is spinning way faster than it does with the keyboard on, although the CPU is at a lower temperature (compared to the idle temp. with keyboard on)

Maybe someone knows anything about the design of these laptops? My best guess is that it's trying to cool off some other component that isn't cooled anymore as it was with the keyboard on it, which used to spread the air around? Maybe there's some way to check the RAM temperature?

Does the fan have a direct intake on the bottom of the laptop? Or are there just vents on the bottom in different places than the fan?

It probably is outputting the same amount of power to the fan, but now that you have given the fan to more air, it is able to spin faster than it used to.
