Laptop THERMAL THROTTLING!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently noticed that my Asus Strix Scar Edition (GL703GM) is thermal throttling when playing games. Its running a i7 - 8750H with a GTX 1060. The CPU reaches around 96 °C in Cinebench R15 and my GPU reaches 76 °C in Unigine Superposition.  I'm on vacation in a pretty hot place (Ambient 27-32 °C). Anyone knows why this might be?

Typical Laptop issues. You could try to get a laptop tray with fans to help cool it, or could prop it up for now. Should help a bit.

My max temperatures used to only be 75 °C in games but its now thermal throttling. My laptop has some pretty beefy coolers on it.

ANY laptop these days will overheat because manufacturers despite the advancement in technology, still put cheap thermal paste that doesn't quiet cut it..

 

You'd wanna do a CPU/GPU Re-Paste that by itself will reduce temps anywhere between 10-15C.

 

I applied Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut (liquid metal) on my CPU and Phobya NanoGrease Extreme on my GPU and that made a HUGE difference.

I only got my laptop for half a year so I don't think its a thermal compound issue. Thanks for the information!

Well I had my laptop for a month as well and why I repasted, temps dropped down by 15C, it's not about the time although yes, thermal paste performance does deteriorate in performance. The issue is the thermal paste done at the factory is usually a very crappy job using the cheapest kind of thermal paste. I bet you if you were to open the laptop up and remove the heatsink, you will find thermal paste on the edges of the CPU but NOT on the actual CPU.

 

Another thing you can do is undervolt the CPU using Intel Extreme Tuning Utility. A safe undervolt would b e -70mV that will reduce temps dramatically whilst still being stable.

 

I gave you my opinion from personal experience. Do what you want.
