ASUS laptop running HOT AF!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So recently, my laptop which is ASUS R510JX is running HOT like hell and having thermal throttling issues just while surfing web. When I checked the thermal readings, it was something like this;

Core #0: 98 °C (208 °F)

Core #1: 94 °C (201 °F)

Core #2: 95 °C (203 °F)

Core #3: 96 °C (204 °F)

(used CPUID HWMonitor v1.31.0)

 

I'm not able to watch x264, x265 videos properly.

 

On visiting ASUS's service centre, they're telling me to replace the whole motherboard! *WTH*.

 

The one problem I'm noticing is the fan's running a lot slower even during heavy loads. I tried searching in BIOS to manually change the fan speeds. But there's no such option there unfortunately! (BIOS version: X550JX 206 Aptio service utility). I even tried third party softwares like SpeedFan, but no luck there too.

 

Help!

If you're feeling brave you can open the case, clean everything out (dust, hair etc.) and pull the heat sink to reapply the thermal paste.

  1. Use something like NotebookFanSpeedControl  instead of SpeedFan.
  2. Pull the heatsink and replace the thermal paste
  3. Replace the fan. If the machine is 4+ years old there's a chance this is causing your problem.

They did that already in the service centre where I took it. I'm looking for ways to somehow control the fan speeds. Coz I think that may solve the problem.

Looking it up it doesn't seem to be that old of a model... is it still under warranty? how long do they want it to replace the mobo?
