    I was playing CoD and I took my headphones off and what?? I hear a strange noise. I restarted the comp and it didn't disappear. When I switched it off then it was gone. I listed it and I am almost sure that it was not from the fans. What is that, any ideas? At video the noise disappears when I switched the computer off and you can compare with the normal fan noise.

    Hi, there is no hdd in this unit. Maybe from ssd if it is possible.."

    It sounds like an unbalanced fan starting up, did you lift it and turn it upside down just before starting? Sometimes you can get a fan to slip in the spindle and start off rubbing against something. An after video of the normal sound during startup would help too.

    Hi,

    No I didn't. It worked fine around 20-30 minutes, then When I took my headphones off, I started to hear that noise. Fan is getting stronger or slower, but it didn't effect that noise. I am 99% sure that it came from another place since it stayed stable when the fans was changing rpm.

    hello to all you guys, first post here! :D
    (and sorry, english is not my main language! :) )

    just wanted to share my opinions on this device. to be exactly, i have the ROG G701VIK with 1080 / 7820HK / 1TB SSD / 32GB Ram since a week ago..

    At the beginning i was veeeeery disappointed because of the thermal issues... it was like hell, even in standard mode (game center), temperatures were going up rapidly to the 90s...
    so like on everyone elses device, out of the box, this badboy gets way too high temperatures...
    so i decided to try the undervolting thing first.... i was trying it with xtu, but i wasn't very comfortable with this one, because, i was getting failure messages all the time, while starting up the device... issue: rog game center (these two programs definitly don't like each other! ;))

    so, yesterday i decided also to do a repaste with thermal grizzly kryonaut AND some undervolting with throttlestop, which is by far more better imho than xtu. (sure a little bit tricky at the beginning, but i would say more professional and stable!)
    i was setting it up, to start with my voltage settings (-0.140v) each time the device starts, without giving me extra notifications, so it's very decent and i like that!
    then i was doing some overclocking with this, now i'm about 3.9ghz on all cores and with some benchmarking i was getting just about highs of 82 degree, which i tink is very nice for this setup and for this cpu... (as far as i know, the 7820HK is THE heater itself! :D)
    some normal cpu stress tests are now heating up to about 80 degree... but of course, no throttling, issues and so...

    sure, i will do some more testing these days, of course with games like THE DIVISION, BATTLEFIELD 1, etc, but as far as i can say, NOW i'm pretty happy with it!

    and thx for some good infos here, was happy to read a few posts! ;)

    When you are done using ROG GC, you can replace it's function with Intel XTU + MSI AB and use those to OC / tune the CPU / GPU further than is possible with ROG GC, and then you can undervolt for even more temperature savings, and get more performance control too. :)

    Thanks for the user report, and Welcome to NBR :)

    thank you for your quick answer! as far as i saw, throttlestop oversteers the rog gc anyway! i mean, if i put the multipliers for example on 41 41 41 41 in throttlestop and let the settings on "extreme" on rog gc (43 43 43 43), then the system takes the throttlestop values and ignores the rog gc... i was just using the gc yesterday, for the other functions in it, but not for the overclocking itself, since it's useless anyway through throttlestop...
    but you are right and i think most of the functions through rog gc are also accessable otherwise! :)
    i know, every cpu is different, but what are good undervolting values for a 7820HK? maybe -0.150 (while on stock) ? i'm trying some more testing tonight!

    Undervolting about -100mV should give a 10c drop in 100% load temps, scaling down under less load, and has the effect of trimming the top temps to under thermal throttling if you even were thermal throttling (about 93c) in the first place.

    Really the only goal of undervolting and re-pasting is to get the laptop to not thermal throttle under heavy use / gaming - otherwise any further temperature drops are just for self-satisfaction, the laptop can run fine for years without re-pasting.

    I've been using ROG / MSI laptops for many years, and the past doesn't degrade over time, temps are maintained to the levels after initial break-in - first few weeks.

    Undervolting alone solve thermal throttling in 99% of the situations, with rare requirement to return laptop that runs too hot. I don't recommend user repasting as it risks the hardware and starts you on a continual repaste cycle - either to get just 1c more lower temps - or to perfect your technique, some people get worse temps after their first or even second and third repaste. :)

    Enthusiast pastes are designed to get lower temps, but not necessarily last a long time, once you re-paste users generally report repasting again in 3-6 months - trying better paste - thinking temps have gone up again (usually seasonal weather changes or other environment changes) - and even those that are more conservative in re-pasting do it every year or so.

    I haven't needed to re-paste any new ROG or MSI laptops even after owning them for years. Undervolting get's the temperatures out of the thermal throttling zone - usually they weren't there either, but a software tuning with XTU is quick and easy. And, I always OC and often run long batch jobs - days - without thermal issues.

    If you want to play around with hardware, re-pasting will make it look like you are doing something useful, but really lowering the temps under the thermal throttling point has no effect on performance or longevity. :)

    :):)

    thank you sir for that! ;)
    that was also my first intention, that this beauty doesn't have to throttle, which makes absolutely no sense at all. i was just thinking, bringing the temperatures near down to 80, it would be a benefit for the device and it will last longer.. i think, as soon as i found my perfect combo of oc'ing and undervolting i'll stick to that and just check temperatures from time to time...
    my repaste job is already done and it was really easy on this device and since i've made some pretty good experiences with this product (thermal grizzly kryonaut) on several pc setups, i gave it green light...
    but you are absolutely right, for users with no background in terms of pc, i would also not recommend it!

    i think you're right about the rog gc... it's just "bloatware", that slowers a system and since i use xtu / throttlestop, it has also less sense of still be there! :D
    and cool thing on asus is, i can always re-install it again in the future, for some reasons!

    as i said, tonight i'm doing some last tests to see, if everything is stable as it is. will post again some experience after that! :)
