Hey guys, I have realized that my laptop has been running hot for a while now. Now that I am getting back into playing some games on it, I downloaded CPUID to see how hot it is actually getting. The game I am playing is a free MMORPG called Vindictus and I have all the graphic settings for the game on minimum.
The laptop that I have is the Asus M70v - Newegg.com - ASUS M70 Series M70Vm-X1 NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T9400(2.53GHz) 17.0" Wide UXGA 4GB Memory 320GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS
The CPU maxed at 69 degrees C
The GPU maxed out at 85 degrees C.. which is 185F
I have already cleaned out the fans and heat sinks. And I have ordered new thermal paste so I can apply it to the CPU and GPU. Is there anything else that I can do to make this laptop run a little bit cooler?
Edit : This laptop in the past year has also made a lot of noise. The noise I am pretty sure is one of the fans hitting against something else, and it gets pretty loud. I found this online, would it be worth a try when I have the money? It is for the CPU, but getting as much hot air out of the laptop might help cool down other parts?
