ASUS ROG Strix II Scar Laptop Normal Gaming Temperatures?

Hello everybody,

I am new to the world of gaming laptops and was wondering if you could help me out.

I bought the ROG Strix II Scar Laptop (GL704GW) about two weeks ago.

My current specs are:

i7-8750H CPU @ 2.20GHz (12 CPUs)

16 GB RAM

Windows 10 Home

NVIDIA GTX 2070


I have noticed when gaming (Overwatch on Ultra settings- which it defaults to in the NVIDA GeForce Center), CPU and GPU can easily hover to 85-90C (with the fans on Turbo).

When playing BF5, it can go to 94C (CPU, GPU Hovers around 85)

I have it on a cooling pad as well as a side vent fan, and it still hits those temps easily.

Less intensive games it holds around low 80's, high 70's which isn't bad at all.

Is this a common issue- and more importantly, are there fixes?

I heard underclocking the CPU can help. I tried using Intel XTU last night to underclock -.100 V but that caused the computer to crash mid-game in Overwatch.

Any help would be appreciated. I am also VERY noviced with computers so please don't be afraid to over explain.

Thanks!!!

Despite creating that curve in MSI Afterburner, not ever able to amp up past 1640 MHZ 😞

are you using msi afterburner and asus gpu tweak together? in that case it may be interfering

I turned off GPU Tweak and released the thermal throttle setting at 77 degrees back to standard. When I tried to create that curve and launch overwatch, it worked great until after a 2 minutes when overwatch crashed and said "graphics card not detected"...or sometimes I'd just get a BSOD. I wonder if either the voltage is too low or the clock is too high. Even when lowing the MHZ to 1800ish, I'd still get that error.


Also, when I use the OC Scanner, I get the BSOD. I figured it's probably due to my aggressive undervolt...but then again, if it's to the CPU, why would that matter?

i would reset to default gpu in msi afterburner then proceed with the OC scanner, using the chart as a reference. i got bsod when i did not reset the gpu to default and then used oc scanner on the curve i created

Keep in mind that i have a GTX 1060 with 6GB VRAM. I guess you have RTX Card?

Hi guys
Please help me. I wanted to buy an ASUS GL704GV rtx2060 laptop, but I had a question before buying.
I had already bought a gl503ge model that had a coil whine problem.
I wanted to know GL704gv model has this problem or has been resolved?
Thanks

sorry for my bad english

Hi,

Just bought GL704 RTX2060. I can get down to -57.6mV only. More than that will get an error on the TS Bench.

80283

80284

UPDATE:-
I have to increased to -52.7mV to get TS Bench to worked on 1024M
80287

Managed to undervolt to -79.1mV error free when Turbo Ratio Limits @ 35.

I just picked up a Strix SCAR II GL504GW with the RTX2070 in it yesterday. I love the laptop, it has some amazing build quality and performance for a $1600 machine. The fans do spin up and the CPU will hit 95*C with the GPU at 78*C while gaming. Is that normal for a gaming laptop like this? This is the first legit gaming laptop I've ever bought so this is new to me. I've always gamed exclusively on desktops, I just got this thing to mess around with and game while traveling.

Oh also, does anyone know the maximum refresh rate monitor you can plug into the HDMI port? I have an extra PG279Q monitor here and plugged it in to the laptop. It locks the refresh rate to 60Hz even though it's a 144Hz G-Sync display. I would have thought it could push 144Hz easily out of the HDMI port on the machine.
