    Hello, I'm so glad that i found this forum. I need some help. My relative sent me this laptop named G-tune from Japan around 1 month ago. I just started using it about 1 week ago. It has very noisy fan. It reaches about 72db (used an iphone 7 mic and sound meter app). and when i play 3d games like R6 siege, Dota 2 temps gets so hot. Cpu reaches about 95C, gpu 91C. I never used gaming laptop before. It made me worry. So i cleaned heat sink, fan, re-applied new thermal paste. After this CPU temp is still same but gpu temp reaches about 87C. I can't even find support site of this laptop. But i believe it's components are from Clevo. So what should i do to get rid of hot temps and loud fan noise? Custom bios? or new heat sink with fan? Any help would be appreciated. Sorry for terrible English.

    Don't think there's anything you can do about the fans. They just get noisy.

    What thermal paste are you using? Of course it depends on the ambient temperature as well, but while gaming my CPU temp is better than yours (80ish) with similar setup. You can undervolt the CPU by using software like ThrottleStop and Intel XTU. That helps reduce the temp by a bit.

    And for the GPU, Kepler runs at a very high temp. Again, not much can be done really....

    Thanks for reply. I don't think my room temperature is hot. Also it's winter in my country. I just googled about ThrottleStop and Intel XTU. I downloaded both of them. And i have no idea what am i looking at. How can i perform undervolt? Changing voltage of cpu can harm in any way? Like giving BSOD and some stuff like that? Also how much db reaches your fan noise?

    Can gpu thermal pads help to reduce hot temp?

    There are a couple of mods needed to get ok temperatures. You need to seal airgaps, get proper thermal paste or liquid metal and you need to undervolt the CPU.

    What thermal paste did you use? And perhaps a bad paste? The temps aren't quite right to me if it's Winter in your country now.

    You can refer to the below guides for the software. Use either one of the software to undervolt the CPU. Undervolting won't do any harm. If the undervolting is not stable (during heavy load like gaming), the PC simply gives BSOD. Rebooting the PC would reset the voltage back to default and you can then reduce the voltage offset until it gets stable.

    I don't know the db of my fans. Haven't measured it before.

    Thank you for reply. I think i should check for air gaps and get some decent thermal paste. I don't think there is any liquid metal selling in my country. Thank you again

    I applied just a cheap chinese thermal paste. I'll buy better one like arctic cooling or cooler master's one. Thank you for provieded guides. I'll read that too. So in the end i have to deal with the fan noise i guess.

    Once you get lower temps, the fans won't spin as fast as they do now.

    Thanks again. I'll post result after i buy new high tier thermal paste and apply it.
