The fans on my laptop are running for about 10 to 20 seconds and then they stop for about 10 to 30 seconds and then they run again for another 10 to 20 seconds and this process repeats, why is this happening?
This happens to me as well on an Strix Scar 2 GL-704GW. In Armoury Crate, it shows fans usage as 0 RPM. This happens on all fan settings, even if I switch to manual and set both at 0%.
Did you ever find a solution?
Since day one after unboxing my ASUS ROG Strix III Hero. Both of my fans were making a (rrrrrrrrrrrr) sound that didn't sound right. The issues persisted 50% of the time on and off. One day they would sound prefect no noise, other days it sounded like a striate piped car stuck in second gear! Sometimes it got so bad my whole laptop would shake from the fans! So I sent my laptop in, after a month, I get an email saying they couldn't find any issues and they are voiding my warrantee?!?. My laptop came back, COVERED IN FOOD, what looked like milk stains, and bread crumbs everywhere! As soon as I turn my device on the fan noise was right there, my whole laptop was violently shaking! I spent 2k on this laptop, and it turned out to be a waist of my time and money, as well as ASUS company all together.
Not just me 2 of my friends bought ASUS laptops as well, and both of them from day one have had issues. One of them sent in their laptop in 4 times! every time it came back broken.
Also I ended up with a extra SSD drive that wasn't mine after getting my laptop from "repairs". Out of curiosity I checked it out, on it i found about 15 other customers personal information. Laptop VINs, Ip addresses, laptop models, info on internal components and more. I sent multiple emails to ASUS but its been more than 6 months and i haven't heard a word from them
My advice if you still can send you laptop back, get your money back, and go spend it with a company that make quality products and has good customer service. Anyone I meet who says they want to buy from ASUS, I sit them down for a story that convinces them NOT to shop with these jerks!
ASUS is a vary $*!^ company in my experience. Would not spend a penny on them!
