I recently purchased a G51JX-A1 Asus laptop with the 360M GPU. I was checking out my temps in HWMonitor (I even got EVGA Precision to double check the temperature) and I capped out at 99 C while playing a not exactly top notch game. Is this number accurate and normal? The air coming out is pretty warm, but the laptop as a whole doesn't get too exceedingly warm.
Anyone have any similar experiences with a G51J or the same model?
So I ran Furmark over a 8 minute test and concluded that my laptop GPU maxes at 105C with a laptop cooler. It seems stable and there is no throttling, and I read somewhere that Nvidia Mobile GPUs are rated up to 140C (!!!!!!!!!!!!). Pretty crazy if that's the "actual" temp.
I've got a 360M too but my temperatures are somewhat different than yours. Idle is 45-50C while gaming (Mafia II) it only reaches 90 (for short periods) and usually stays at 85C. I am using RealTemp to capture GPU temp at everyminute.
