EveryOne With FAN SPEED GOING CRAZY

Tor_Spo
Level 8
Hi,
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.

this bad patch has had BAD connectors that asus have bought from another company that makes those connectors / fans. (bad batch)

did this make this crystal clear for you now?

and if the connection IS BAD you need to go to your BIOS and see if the RPM THERE IS CHANGING, if it is 0 or crazy number like 547654
(cpu fan only can be seen there)
if the problem is with GPU fan you need to check it with software in your operating system.


please focus.

I get it, and good on you for identifying the issue, but given the nature of this discussion board I feel entitled to voicing my opinion on why issues with bad batches exist, among why a diligent user like yourself has to mention the issues, and how to diagnose it, instead of Asus doing the prudent thing and issuing a service advisory, and paying for affected people to ship their machines back for an expedited repair.

Hi Tor_Spo and all other ROG comrades out there,

What grabbed my attention here is that you talk about the crazy number. I check with ROG Gaming center and my CPU temp is normal but my GPU temp shows to be -32768 degrees C (we all know it is not possible). But what does it mean? Why is it such a crazy number.

INTERESTING:
It is funny that my fans spin like crazy when the laptop is idle (not doing anything special with it) but when I turn on a game (PES 19, GTA 5, F1 2018, or some other game that would heat up your laptop) it switches off in the beginning (like it senses that the temperature is still normal) and then after some play time it starts to spin again but not at 7200 RPM. I mean that when I start a game the fans start spinning as expected (slowly increasing speed with playtime when it becomes warmer).

Looking forward to your feedback 🙂

GPU thermal sensor not working or you used special quantum thermal pad 🙂 My tips on fan's speed: electro-static. My laptop's fan high speed working after 5-10 sec on power up. Idle mode after 3-4 hours working normal speed. But: I started stability test (on aida64 can, full stresses CPU, FPU, cache, GPU), and windows setting full power mode. I waited on PCH diode temp up on 50°C ( and GPU 70 °C) and stopping test. Waited 1-2 mins and fan's normal speed working on full day.
I used liquid metal thermal "paste", and duct tape used on fixed fans connect. GPU's fan connect can you find under on SSD. Idiot ASUS team.... The warranty sticker used on SSD fixing srcew...

And need this driver installed: DPTF_Intel_CFL_W10_64_V84105016067

Tips: can writed °. Press hold ALT GR and press ohne time "5" key (not numpad) and write C or F or etc... 🙂

Hi PowerPein! Can you post photos of how you put in the duct tap on the CPU fan connectors? Your tips helped but it seems fan issues are back on mine, but less often and a bit quieter than before.

This issue is annoying. I've been considering shifting to other gaming laptops because of the poor quality control

Yes, sure: read this topic: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?104242-Strix-SCAR-II-GL504GS-Fan-Question-Stuck-on-High-fo...
Scroll to the bottom of the page. I writed and sended this topic on pohoto, how to find GPU connector and CPU connector.

We are discussing the obnoxious fan speed issue. Nothing less, nothing more. Stop trying to change the subject and putting words in my mouth so you can try and make sense of your logic. If you want to talk about thermal issues, driver issues and whatnot, use the search function and find the proper thread to discuss it.

Read the other threads on the issue and you'll see what I'm talking about. There are also links to other forums where people also found the culprit.
It's a bad connection. Simple as that. Case closed.


Your opinion on the threshold for how much people are willing to read/appreciate is irrelevant, so don't try and pass it off as everybody else's; might just be indicative of your own literacy.

My post addresses the idea that fan speed issues aren't always going to be a one off mfg. mistake, and could easily be underengineering, and widespread QA, and it would be hard to tell given spread of models a company like Asus offers. Yes, I heavily diverged from the OP which specifies the issue which presents with Bios reading nonsense RPMs, but I was commenting on the idea that the majority of the people seem not to be experiencing the issue which OP, and your post suggests to likely be the culprit (with your suggestion that everyone wants a software patch, or thinks repetitively reinstalling windows will magically bring remedy).

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.

en cuanto hablas con el servicio tecnico de Asus , les cuentas el problema y empiezan a hablarte de driver , controladores , bios , actualizaciones , etc... entiendes que trae mas cuenta solucionarlo por tu cuenta con riesgo de perder la garantia que mandarles tu ordenador que volvera hecho una patata.
Saludos.

As soon as you speak with the technical service of Asus, you tell them the problem and they start talking to you about driver, drivers, bios, updates, etc ... you understand that it brings more account to solve it on your own with risk of losing the guarantee that you send them your computer I'll make a potato again.
Regards.

That's just their standard script they usually follow.
If it's still under warranty, send it back. If it's not, then you have the option to try fixing it yourself or taking the device to a repair shop near you.

It's work!!! THANK YOU
