    Nah, it didn't work... Same odd and faulty behaviour as soon as I use anything a bit more demanding than browsing, or just browsing... I'm very pissed off, I was so happy with this laptop...

    I've suffered much worse and wasted much more time. You are lucky. Scrap it if you still have a chance. Having owned more than one, it does not ever get any better than you described. Really, you should go to Las Vegas and play the slot machines next to the front door!

    The solution is to set fan speed to 55% for the two first steps (Fan speed -> advanced)

    Sorry to hear, yjacket2001... What happened to yours?

    Thank you very much again, Léo Martin! I would try again your solution. Are you already using the latest BIOS (E16H7IMS.114) and EC firmware (16H7EMS1.107) and still suffering the same CPU fan problem, unless you fix it with Dragon Center?

    Previously, I decided to revert to EC 16H7EMS1.105 (factory version; MSI Country Support told me that I couldn't revert to a previous version... such a big lie!!!) to see if it disappears, but it didn't... However, the CPU fan produces more constant flow sound. This problem used to happen when demanding the laptop some power, stopping and refreshing afterwards, while decreasing temp and reaching the specified values. So, it currently happens especially after starting the laptop the next day when it's cold and starting to browse internet, but it seems more stable overall.

    I want to restore factory settings (W10 preinstalled OS) to see if it makes any difference, but F3 recovery doesn't work anymore. I made an ISO copy through MSI Recovery Tool, but it produced 5 ISO files (recovery_dvd.iso). As it doesn't have a DVD disc player, does anyone know how to restore to MSI W10 preinstalled OS from these ISOs? Better still, could anyone share their MSI W7 preinstalled OS, as it's the OS that I will need to install?

    Thank you very much in advance! Cheers

    P.S: In case someone wants to revert to previous BIOS or EC versions, you can use these links (still within MSI database):

    I downgraded my BIOS to 103 (I thought v104 was the problem but I think it's not). I use EC Firmware 107.
    I remember when I received my GS60, CPU fan was running at 2700 RPM (EC 106 I think), now it can't go under 3247 (but I have to stay above 3300 RPM or it goes crazy).
    I'll try downgrading.
    Keep me in touch.
    (Btw problem is gone with my DGC version, the one in the previous message)

    [First post] I thought I was the only one!! Bought this laptop last summer, been impressed with it so far. However I have (or rather had) that exact same problem few weeks back, rather annoying when in the library. So far it has been behaving well however, no idea why the sudden change in behavior.

    Fan speed never goes below 3356, with average temps of 54 deg at normal use. I did do some intense simulation work, but that's what the laptop should handle anyway.

    Edit: Just to add something that people have had issues on: When I first had this laptop (summer 16), the HD screen would occasionally flicker. Infact, I almost sent this laptop back for a replacement, but I believe automatic updates fixed the problem and have had no issues since, luckily. Fingers crossed, it is an expensive laptop and I hope it lasts a long time.

    Second Edit: I was wrong, the laptop is exhibiting the same fan off -fun full power cycle again. Ill try a fix posted above, and see how that goes

    Have you tried cleaning up the fan and heatsink vent? It's almost a year since your purchase perhaps a clogged vent is the root cause of this behavior.
