Hey, So i bought a new Asus K53SV series laptop. It's been 2 days however something caught my attention. It's idle Temperature is 50 C with Notepal U2 cooling pad. While gaming it exceeds 80 C. GPU even gets to 90! I hope i don't have to send it for repairs i spent hours customizing it.

What else can i do to cool it off? Thermal paste? Its 2 days old I'm pretty sure there is no dust.

Specs: Windows 7 64Bit Home premium
Ram: 4Gb + 4Gb installed seperatly.
Processor: I5 2430M
GPU: GT540M

90c is not very catastrophic for a gpu. 80c is high on a cpu, though, but you are talking about a laptop, which is going to run hotter either way since there is less dissipation of heat. Have you considered a cooling pad for when you game?

check to see that your bios is up to date..with laptop the bios and or software controls onboard fans speeds. i would check the power settings and turn them to perfroamce and or check to see if you can turn the fans on or up faster. if you did and the temps are staying there see if the vendor has a fan test program that you can check to see that the fans on your laptop are working.

I am using a cooling pad. The notepad U2. Still I believe these temps are high for a new laptop. Thanks though.

Well I better learn how to update bios. I did change the fan speed in the advanced power settings but it didn't help. How else can I change my fan speeds or check them?

As noted by smorizio, check to make sure your bios is up date. Also, you could use a software program to force a more aggressive cooling profile on your laptop.

You'd be surprised at how many times it come up where people are not using laptop coolers while gaming, so that's sort of become a standard response, sorry.

You're right, laptop cooling pads are necessary if you're gaming and don't want your laptop to meltdown. Those coolers make a big difference. I'm researching on how to update my bios and a program to increase the fan speed at the moment
