    Default Asus G50,G51 GPU Overheating issue FIXED

    I thought this would be worth the time to post since I was having this exact problem and now it is completely fixed.

    ISSUE:
    After playing a 3D game and having no problems at all, your game will all of a sudden run extremely choppy and your FPS will drop to around 4 FPS. This is very annoying considering your laptop easily passes minimum specs.

    WHY?
    Get a program such as HWMonitor, its free. This will show you that when your FPS drop your GPU core temp is over 110 degrees celsius. nVidia has a safety built in to prevent artifacts appearing and wrecking your processor so it runs in ultra low voltage mode until the temp drops.

    FIX
    I kid you not, I did this exact thing and it made a world of difference. My temps are around a steady 81 degrees celcius on high settings without the slightest drop in FPS.

    follow these instructions and you will be playing your favorite games in no time. You can pick up a tube of arctic silver 5 for less than 10 bucks. It was amazing how much dust and how ****ty the coolant paste from OEM was applied to my laptop.

    PM me if you need extra instructions.

    oh PS. rubbing alcohol (over 91%) works best for removing the old garbage paste they have frmo OEM

    I beg to differ. While 91% isopropyl is great I prefer Artic silver's 2 step cleaner ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835100010 ). It works insanely well and is safe for your delicate components.
