Fan not working full speed when in game in turbo mode, causing overheating

Level 7


I have an Asus TUF Dash FX516PC with 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-11300H @ 3.10GHz 3.11 GHz and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU.

It has been working properly until the last few month : before, when I launched a game with armoury crate turbo on, the fan would go max speed with high sound and everything would run fine.

Now, the fan don't go past 3000 rpm even when the CPU temp is more than 80/90°C, causing big fps drop. Only when i switch from turbo to performance then turbo again, the fans go high for a few seconds then stay around 3000 rpm again, causing temp to raise again.

I did all the driver/software updates i could, i tried uninstall/reinstall armoury crate, i even tried to uninstall armoury crate and get g-helper, but it is always the same, no matter how I set up the fan curves on g-helper : the fans go high for a few seconds when i deselect/select turbo mode then stay put at 3000 rpm...

I don't know what caused this, it used to run fine and make a lot of noise before...

Please anyone have a solution ? I saw on internet that many ppl have the same problem...
