Gaming Laptop ASUS ROG GL502VM-DS74 overheating and need some ideas to fix it.


Dec 25, 2016
I have a gaming laptop (GL502VM-DS74), and the package temperature gets up to 95C+ when playing games like squad (on ultra). I use a cooling pad (CM Storm SF-17) and that's lowered it down to a solid 95C. I've also lowered my core voltage offset by 120mV and that has pushed it down to 85C - 90C without sacrificing performance. Any other ideas?
