I bought an Asus nitro 5 laptop and I have problems with my cpu temperature and fans and I am unsure if my laptop is just faulty or if this is normal for this model, can some of you check if this appears on your nitro 5 as well?
--> While Windows updates were loading (NOT installing) in the background with nothing else running, both fans were on average at 4800 rpm with the CPU temperatures reaching 90+ degrees celsius all the time with a load of 10 percent on the cpu and zero on the gpu.
--> While surfing the internet (youtube etc), the cpu again reaches 90 degrees celsius (load on cpu is 4 %, gpu is at zero) and thus the cpu fan turns on and off between 3500 and 5500 rpm (spikes are for example when clicking on a youtube video to open it) with an average of 4000 rpm. The gpu fan is at 4000 rpm as well with load of zero.
--> The fan doesn't go below 2500 rpm when I am doing nothing on the laptop and no application are open. the max seems to be 6100, the fan is loud if it reaches 3300+ rpm (increasingly so).
--> I only tried one game - Farcry 3 - just to see how the laptop will react under load: 90+ degrees on CPU (with 40% load on cpu), fans both at maximum 6100 rpm (very loud) constantly when a game is running.
I have tried different energy settings, there is nothing blocking the exit of the fans, outside temperature is at 20 degrees celsius and I disabled the CoolBoost already. Now I have owned a lot of laptops. But I have never seen a laptop react like this while not under load.
Are 5000+ rpm spikes on my fans normal when not under load? Is it normal to have 4000 rpm average while just browsing with no applications open but the browser and "nitrosense" to keep track of temperature? Is it normal to be constantly at 90 degrees on the CPU while gaming? Is there a definitive way to find out if this is a hardware defect?
My Nitro 5: AN515-52-76LV, Intel Core i7-8750H, nVidia GeForce GTX 1050, 8GB Ram, 256 GB SSD.
Thanks for your help.
