Hello , My Name is James and about a month ago I just bought the GL502VM-FY290T and there some setting i don't understand on Game Center > http://i.imgur.com/gldoFO9.png < and what is the normal temperature for laptop the reason i ask is when i play games like War Thunder , Mafia 3 my temperature just rose to 90 ~ 96 'C is it normal to have such temperature ? not directly just rose 90 ~ 96 'C after playing the game for 1 hour the temperature just rose to that number so i'm asking if normal or not ,cause this is my first ever laptop before getting this laptop I'm using desktop and 9 month ago it got busted and can't be use anymore so that why i choose to buy the R.O.G for ON THE GO gaming and lately this laptop will freeze for one month it already freeze like 3 - 4 times for one month so i'm curious what happen any community or R.O.G profesional can help me out abit.

Hello!

I have a GL502VMK with an i7 7700HQ and a nVidia GTX 1060. My laptop also runs quite hot when gaming, especially on CPU-intensive games, the CPU gets up to 98 degrees. The GPU, though, stays at aroun 70 degrees. These were my temps after 30 minutes on The Witcher 3 using nVidia's GeForce Experience reccomended settings. I didn't have any other issues so far. It didn't shutdown, freeze, or anything like that.
If the freezing that you speak of persists, try reinstalling the chipset and graphics drivers, or maybe even reinstall Windows. If after all that it still freezes, I'd RMA it right away.

Sincerely,
Carl

My GL502VMK doesn't have Fan boost speed in Gaming Center so how do I add it ?:(:(:( http://imgur.com/a/m2IOO already update my Gaming Center Manual from 2.0.2 to 2.0.3 still doesn't Have the fan boost setting in my gaming center.

Make sure you've installed the chipset drivers from the ASUS support page.

I Don't think my chipset needed to be update cause the Asus Support page give me Chipset version 1.10 while i have the 1.15 ...

For both questions, please consult Intel specifications here:

1) That CPU frequency of ~3,5GHz is normal.
The CPU only reaches 3,8GHz when only one core is online.
Turbo boost frequency decreases as the amount of cores online increases:
1-core (3,8GHz);
2-core (3,6GHz);
3-core (3,5GHz); and
4-core (3,4GHz).

2) The heat is pretty normal on a gaming laptop, especially in a powerfull laptop with an i7 quad-core and a mobile GPU very similar to a desktop GPU.
Intel announces the Tjunction as 100ºC
"TJUNCTION: Junction Temperature is the maximum temperature allowed at the processor die."
So, 91-96ºC is not ideal, but it is acceptable.

To help reduce heat, I highly recommend undervolting your CPU and GPU.
