Asus G51J-A1 Overheating?? (Extremely HOT)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys , I have owned an Asus G51J for quite some time now and it has always ran very hot, and i mean hot. Recently, I believe the laptop has gotten so hot that the laptop will completely shut off. Also, when I try to run games like World of Warcraft within a few minutes, usually very quickly; the games will start to lag so bad that you cannot play.

I ran a HWmonitor and saved the report.

This log is after running World of Warcraft for a very short time, maybe not even 3 minutes !!!!

Open it up and check the heatsinks for dust.

EDIT: Which reminds me, I should do this for my lappy. It's been getting warmer and warmer lately.

I've drilled holes in the bottom of mine - in that big circular area where there's nothing really. That happens to be where the CPU fan is. I also run mine with a Zalman cooling pad. CPU idles around 50-55C, GPU at about 60C. After about 8 hours of Starcraft 2, the CPU will be at around 65C and GPU at about 75C... and yes, clean it out regularly.

Not surprised. My friend's i7 gets stupid hot and overheats too often for my liking. I keep telling him to send it back and get an updated machine.

Get a good cooling pad to help with that. Also blow some compressed air in through the vent and see if that helps. Here's the overpriced but really good cooler I bought maybe, 20 minutes ago. biggrin.gif

Oh and don't be so surprised that the CPU gets that hot. My i5 gets up to 85*C at times. Actually surprised that your CPU is that low for temps. biggrin.gif Good on you.

If the warranty has ended you ought to replace the TIM, as they use oem gunk that's no better then toothpaste :[

Besides getting a cooler (which you need to make sure aligns correctly with your cooling slots) you can underclock and underclock your cpu and gpu, which will still play wow fine at good settings.

A much cheaper solution would be to get the Cooler Master U3. It cost $30, has 3 movable fans and works quite well. I use it on my G51JX and it reduces the temp by about 10C if you put the fans right under the vents of your laptop.

It also sounds like you need to open up your laptop and clean the dust out. I did that yesterday and also left the back panel off. My GPU dropped by over 20C from 95C to 75C MAX.
