    I have edited the first post direction to fix a few errors I saw when using the Best Buy JH you will see then in Bold test.
    It is not a big deal, but I like it to be spot on..

    So I saw my Ideal temp go from 49 to 41. That is not bad at all...

    Here's a guide (pictures can be added later if necessary/requested):

    1. Download the program called 'RW Everything' from the creator's homepage HERE: RW - Read & Write

    2. Install the program, and open it up. Up near the top, you'll see a row of icons. Click on the one that looks like a laptop and has the letters 'EC' on it (this is the Embedded Controller function)

    3. You'll see rows of numbers in columns on the X axis and Y axis. The bit you need to modify is located at 00x90. So go to the right one (top column will be 00), and then go all the way down to 90 (left column, it's right above A0).

    4. Where these two meet, you'll see '00', right below '03'. Double click on it, and a little box will appear. It'll have small rows of numbers going 7, 6, 5, etc.

    5. At the very bottom, it'll say '00'. Click on this and change it to '01'. Click DONE.

    You'll hear your fan go to 100% and stay there. This keeps your laptop running MUCH, much cooler.

    If you want your normal (quiet) fan speeds back, simply hit 'Shut Down' in Windows to power the laptop off fully, and then turn it back on. It'll reset the bit value in the embedded controller to 00, and your normal fan speeds will function as usual.

    Note: While this will keep your laptop running much cooler, it could also potentially wear out the fan much quicker, requiring it to be replaced sooner. Keep this in mind, I really only force the fan to 100% for gaming to make sure it lasts longer.

    Note #2: I've tested this on an Asus G73JH along with a G60JX, and it works on both. This should (in theory) also work on G73SW's, G53's, and G60VX's along with possibly G72's. I make no promises, but you're free to try.

    Enjoy. If this is old news, I apologize in advance.

    What about the CPU fan?

    Modern games tax the GPU, I fly Flightsim X only, CPU heavy and old code, and the CPU temp goes crazy!

    Thanks Hrogi for the guide.

    @PFL: It should force the CPU fan to 100% as well.

    Any ideas why this does not work me? I change the correct section from 00 -> 01 and nothing happens.

    Turn off the your computer

    unplug the ac

    remove the battery

    And keep its everything unplugged for 10 mins

    after 10 mins turn it back on

    everything should work perfectly now .
