    Same but for me this has been a common issue in most laptops I've owned. I blame Intel on poor thermal design as the gpu stays at a steady 60-75 C with similar cooling. The gpu doesn't seem to throttle as horribly at high temps as the 7920hq did in my gt83. It actually benched higher than the 83 in xtu lol.

    Don't put the blame on Intel. Rather put the blame on the OEM's who shrink/skimp on the cooling design/cooling capacity in their notebooks. You can't expect good cooling if all they prefer is to make thinner and thinner laptops and give a damn in good enough cooling!! Put as well a part of the blame on the buyers who don't stop up, thinking and say NO to all this. Only minimal sale can force a change to the better.

    Just received Asus GX501VSK with 1TB M.2 Sata SSD.
    CPU and GPU are re-pasted with Gelid GC Extreme and CPU is undervolted by 0.130V with XTU.
    Playing PUBG on ultra setting gives me CPU 69~74°C and GPU 64°C.
    Playing Overwatch or GTAV on ultra setting gives me under CPU 68°C.
    The fan noise goes up to 40db and is very quiet compare to GL702(55db) and G752(48db) during load.
    I’m super impressed how cool and quiet this machine is for how thin it is.
