No, this is the thread I started as a sticky for posting Benchmark Results for the G751, look at the first post, or the Title at the top of every Page "Got your new G751JY G751JT G751JM ? Post your review, temps, benchmark results!"

I don't know which thread you thought you were posting in, but this is the wrong thread 🙂

Hello everyone!

Jumped in to the ROG wagon and got my G751JY today. I deleted all bloatware and updated all the drivers and flashed a new bios.
Began benchmarking by running Furmark and Prime95 and my machine reached the following max temperatures after 15 minutes: CPU 96 celsius and GPU 74 celsius. CPU temperature is the most worrying in my mind. The cpu model is i7-4710hq.
What do you people think, should I try RMA lottery for a bit cooler machine?

Thanks!

@Mokoko123 - Wall of text incoming.

When I have got my G751JY, I have been getting pretty similar temps (96/96/94/94 on CPU, 78°C on GPU). Obviously I was stressed cause I expected them to be lower(I am talking about CPU). Talked with asus customer support and they told me to send the laptop for "diagnostics".

So I RMA-ed it and after a week and half I got it back with statement that the notebook is fine, they did 10hours stress test in which the CPU reached 96°C which is under 100°C maximum operational temperature limit, so they do not see any problem with the notebook. So technically you should not worry about these temps. However, I couldnt get used to see permanent 90-95°C shown on MSI afterburner during gaming, so had to find some workaround which would help reducing the temperatures a bit.

So first I did was to undervolt the CPU by -80mv/-80mV. This helped me with reducing temps at idle more than during full load but still it was better than nothing. After that I reduced cpu multipliers by 3x to 33x/32x/32x/31x what really helped to reduce temps. Didnt see any significant fps drop in games after doing this (maybe 1-3fps in far cry 3 , cpu load is there at 70%, in other high end games I play its like 25-45% ), although I will raise it by 100mhz maybe when GTA5/Witcher 3 comes out, depending on how CPU intensive they will be.

Both undervolting/underclocking you can do in Intel XTU program, you can find tutorial about how to it somewhere on this forum as well.

Even after doing all this I was not satisfied with my temps, so there came NitroX who just finished making his custom CPU fan profile which, when I tested it, helped with reducing the temps drastically. I am running the profile for a week already nonstop and did not have single issue with it, I can say that it works flawlessly so far.
You can find it there - https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?58501-Making-of-quot-Official-NotebookFanControl-G751JY-Pr...

Okay so at the end with all these "workarounds" I managed to reach the temps I am satisfied with.
Before I had 86-95°C in Far Cry 3, now I have 75-84°C peaking at 86-87°C for a few seconds.
On less CPU intensive games (but still with 99% GPU load - this is important to have maximum GPU load all the time to see your correct maximum gaming temperatures) like Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag I was getting before 82-94°C now I am getting 65-76°C !! So ye, it is definitely worth a try.

P.S. - I just want to add that all these workarounds did not help me with combined stress tests temperatures ! But for me gaming/rendering temperatures are important not temperatures during stress tests anyway.
(I will maybe edit this post tomorrow to add screenshots of cpu temps before/after, but I am too lazy now, also sorry for my English)

Thanks Boxis for you answer. Nice to see that there's a rather active and helpful community around here.

I've done some more testing today with stress testing and gaming and decided not to do a RMA. Even if I don't like the high temperatures when testing with Prime95 and Furmark, the temperatures stay below the T-junction and hwinfo64 shows me that cpu clock speed doesn't get below 2,5GHz, so technically speaking there is no problem with temperatures.

I played around with Intel XTU and the undervolting potential is of course nice, but if the clock multipliers are not lowered also the CPU fills the thermal headroom by running higher clock speeds. That of course is free performance which is always nice. I suspect there's some stability testing to be done during the upcoming weekend.

NBFC turned out to be a really welcome software. When playing Max Payne 3 the GPU max stayed below 70 degrees celcius and CPUmax below 80 degrees celcius. below 80 degrees celcius which I consider more than acceptable. Sure it's not the most demanding title available but for now it'll do. Noise level increase is rather small so nothing but a big thumbs up for it from me.


Happy gaming

Hi everyone !
I have a G751JY-T7052H (i7 4710HQ, 16 GB, 980M) since 1 month today and I come on this forum to write my first review.
This rig is a beast in term of design, performance, price etc. My bigger games, Dying Light and BF4, are running easily on it. Graphics performances are awesome.

I have one question for you, about my temps. I tried a lot of settings about v-sync and here is what I get while playing :

With v-sync off in games settings, I get the most FPS it can blow. For example, I'm very rarely below 60fps in Dying Light and rarely below 70fps in BF4.
Dying Light is often at 65+ and BF4 at 75-80+. But with v-sync off, I get the hottest temps. In Dying Light GPU is about 73-75°C MAX and CPU is about 83-85°C MAX (peaks). I Think average CPU is about 80-82°C but I'll do more test with HWiNFO64 to get the exact min/max/average.
In BF4 it's a little bit higher. With v-sync off, my GPU grows to 75-76°C, almost never see 77 I think. CPU go between 85-87 (some peak at 89 but only saw this once). Average CPU should be around 85°C I think.
I did some tests with v-sync on adaptive to save some °C and in Dying Light CPU is about 81-82°C max and in BF4 maybe 83-85°C, not sure at 100%. More tests to come this evening to confirm the difference between v-sync off and adaptive.

What do you suggest after reading this ? Should I RMA my rig ? Should I only play with adaptive to save some °C ? v-sync off temps are acceptable ?

Thanks for your advices.
Regards.

NB : excuse my poor English... (French)

Thanks Boxis for answer. If others like hmscott can confirm this it would be nice 🙂
I just played BF4 in multiplayers 64 ppl for about 40 min and here are the values from HWiNFO64 :

Game's settings : ULTRA, 1080p, v-sync off. 80+fps almost all the time.

CPU (i7 4710HQ) max : 87°C
CPU average right after leaving the game : 77°C
GPU (980M) max : 77°C
CPU TDP max : 45W
Current CPU speed : 3292Mhz for all cores all the time

Here are idle temps :
CPU : 37°C
GPU : ~41°C

No frequency drop during play for CPU nor GPU, no stutter while playing. I guess I didn't get Thermal Throttle thing. Right ?

Thx for your help guys.

Other test on Dying Light for about 1h20.
Game's settings : 1080p, v-sync off, High all settings, view distance 50% (8/16) and ON everywhere else.

CPU (i7 4710HQ) max : 86°C
CPU average right after leaving the game : 79°C
GPU (980M) max : 76°C
CPU TDP max : 41.2W
Current CPU speed : 3292Mhz for all cores all the time

No particular stutter, didn't see any drop in fps or frequency for both CPU & GPU. I guess again no thermal throttle. Hopefully !

Can I state that my temps are "normal" and there is no problem with my rig ? No need to RMA or something else ?

Regards.

@Akik82 : As I said, you should download MSI Afterburner and monitor your temps while gaming with the On Screen Display option. That way you will get to know the real Average temp and you can also monitor if the CPU throttles or not.

By the way, the CPU won't throttle until the core temp reaches 95C, so you are fine and dandy. Though, check what I have said about Triple Buffering in the other thread. Also, you should consider a CPU Undervolt since it won't change the performance in any way. Also, I recommend using the "Balanced" profile instead of the "High performance" one, because the "High Performance" keeps your CPU clocks at max all the time, even when you don't need the power. The "Balanced" profile is better because it will let your CPU cooldown and raise the frequency just when it needs too. Don't worry about any performance drops in games because there won't be any.

I just checked out, I'm not in performance mode but in "normal utilization" in power management menu. I guess it's what you call "Balanced".
I'm already using MSI Afterburner and yes the average temps are a little bit lower than the peak temps (~86-87°C with v sync off).
Can you link the latest version of D3DOverrider please ? Thx !

EDIT : I tested again BF4 at max settings v-sync off with MSI Afterburner + RTSS on-screen and here are the values :

CPU max : 87°C (like HWiNFO64)
GPU max : 76°C
CPU average : I saw 1 peak to 87°C then most of the time it was fluctuating between 83 and 85°C
GPU average : almost all the time at 75°C

Seems to be good temps no ? I really love v-sync off smoothness like on a desktop 🙂
Will it hurt my laptop later ? Hope not...

The temperatures are fine. No reason to worry about. Just keep an eye on them while using V-Sync off. Though, for the love of God, please try using V-Sync On + Triple Buffering. It hurts to see that you are making poor choices without having a strong info to rely on.

If you are still concerned about the high temps, I have presented you all possible solutions in the other thread.
