This is not a public library. People come to this forum to looking for a quick solution and wall of text isn't going to help in this case, specially when it goes way off topic. It just gets in the way when you're trying to find something.
This specific issue we are discussing here is caused by a bad connection. Not software related. I -and others for that matter- never said fan speed issues are always caused by a bad connection. Again, we are discussing this very specific issue with this line of laptops from Asus.
It doesn't matter how many users are dealing with this issue. We are not here to discuss that, but instead to find a solution. It is happening and the solution is out there, but users keep trying to magically fix it without even opening the back cover of their laptops to at least try to troubleshoot. I say they want a patch or whatever or are expecting a reformat would fix that, because that's what people have been doing. Read the other threads and see it for yourself.
(to placate) DISCLAIMER: THIS POST IS NOT A FIX FOR THE FAN ISSUES AND RATHER CONTRIBUTION TO A NECESSARY DISCUSSION ON WHY THESE ISSUES EXIST.
This also isn't Asus technical support, so the fact you see the board as needing to stand in for that, bolsters every point I've been making.
This is a discussion board for Asus products, specifically the GL series of laptop. I am happy my post is included in this discussion, because this will allow people who choose to read my posts to understand that they didn't just get unlucky, and that these issues affect more people then they should.
You're in no position to gate keep how people should use this discussion board.
Finding a solution is absolutely ideal, but if there're so many issues needing solutions found, I think this is absolutely an appropriate place to mention that.
Sure, maybe I could have made an individual thread for this train of thought, but nonetheless, it's pretty easy to see that my post was a commentary on the issue and not a solution, so any member who is using the forum in the way you just described could easily choose to not read my commentary and scroll through for a solution. Any member who reads my discussion, and would like to agree/disagree with it, can do so. It's not like I wrote a bait where the first three sentences set up something that looks like its going to lead into a magic solution, then I proceed to diverge into a critique of Asus.
Also, any user who wants to arbitrarily define what they think this forum should be used for, in a dogmatic fashion may do so, I guess..
If Asus upped their engineering QA, and mfg QA, the quantity of fixes needing to be discerned by the end user would go down, and that's totally relevant.
If this thread was about a one-off issue, or a recurrent issue that appears in a single model, I'd be pretty off-topic. But when someone says "FAN SPEED GOING CRAZY" they could be referring to like ten different presentations of that issue, all which are common with Asus models in the ROG line, all which may or may not be caused by hardware. Don't believe me, just look at the posts in these forums.
Please check your bios and OS for CPU/GPU RPM, if it's a crazy number like 7000? or -34550 or what ever!
then your problem is in THE HARDWARE the connector on the motherboard is very fragile and it has 4 PINS, very gentle pins inside it. those pins go inside the four holes of the fans connector and if even once the connector is seated in a wrong angle those pins will get BENT!
please check this before posting about crazy fans speeds.
ps. even new laptops can have this problem, employees @ asus factories aren't perfect and make mistakes too.
