Gaming Laptop Heat

I have an Asus G75 I really like it. My only complaint is that it generates a lot of heat and my office is small and not well ventilated.

It may just be a fact of having a gaming laptop but can anyone recommend one that generates less heat? I was looking at the Alienware 18 but the size of the vents makes me think it will not be better than the Asus. Loud fans would be a big negative for me too.

Thank you in advance for your comments.

  1. Search is my friend. http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1755579/good-gaming-laptops-good-heat-management.html That one is pretty close to my answer. Looks like the newer Asus is an option.

    If I was looking for a gaming laptop that could potential have very good ventilation and be relatively quiet, then I would consider something like the Gigabyte P-25k-CF2 which has dual fans and dual exhaust; one dedicated to the CPU and the other for the GPU. Since each has it's own fan, then potentially each fan can run slower compared to gaming laptops with a single fan that must push enough air to cool both CPU and GPU.

    The P25W-CF3 has a more powerful graphics card and a higher price

  3. You can set up one of the power profiles to help reduce heat when in the office. For example, just use the "Energy Star" / "Super Saving" (or something like that) profile and maybe change a few settings like 25% maximum PC performance and set cooling to passive mode rather than active.
  4. Thank you for taking the time to respond. I don't have any experience with Gigabyte but I will do some reading. I have tried dialing down the settings but I notice the performance hit that you describe. I also should have been more specific. My office in question is my home office where I do all of my gaming.
