Cooling a 5750G?

Recommended Posts

I've jus bought a 5750g second hand (i5 2430M 2.4 GHz & nvidia 540M 2GB) and it's running really hot, i'm getting 95+ temperatures on both the cpu and gpu while gaming, so big thermal throttling framerate drops apply. The thing is that the fan looks almost perfectly clean so i'm discarding that option but given the fact that this laptop only have one heatsink for the cpu the gpu and the chipset and that the fan is not providing enough air flow i want to ask you for some cooling tricks to lower the full load temp to 80 or 85.

About the fan, it doesn't achieve the same rate under load that the one it gets while booting, just after powering the laptop the fan goes crazy and then drops to it's usual rate and that's not enough.

At the moment i'm thinking on:

-replacing the stock thermal compound

-buying a cooling pad <-not a big fan of this one, i think the system should take care of itself

-hacking the fan to bypass the pwm control and soldering it directly to a 5v line, jet engine rpm on demand.

After you do the repaste I think you will be under 85C.

Also usually you can't see if there is dust between the heatsink and the fan without taking it apart (literally pull the fan from the heatsink).

I hope i can get to 85 only with the new paste wi'll see. In this laptop you can actually see the fan in trough a vent in the bottom, lighting it with a flashligth it's possible to see if the blades are dusty, anyway i'm going to open the laptop for repasting so i'll clean the fan while i'm at it.

I had same problem. You should open fan itself and clean dust inside, use Arctic cooling paste and NEVER play a game without cooling pad!

Also, Acer made small simple app that in theory should allow you to run your cooler at max speed. App name is Fan Controller (how originally), you can download it from Acer site. In my case, fan does go max speed, drops temp 40-50 C, and then stops completely until temp rises. Unfortunately, sometimes it doesnt work at all and I have to restart system in order to speed up fan.

I still don't like it. If I turn the laptop on and forget to start Fan Controller, temp goes to 70 C. I am going to hardwire fan to 5V supply so it runs at max speed all the time. I just have to figure out where to hijack 5V from. If anyone knows, please do tell.

Do the repaste, I had the same issue with my Acer 5750G with GT 630M and an i3 (Given the i3 probably produce less heat) Anyhow I was hitting 85-90C constantly. I repasted with Artic Silver 5 (Still good stuff & easy to find) I always do a good tiny X of thermal paste in the middle I always found it to work best than the dot)

Now I idle around 40C and pushing it I don't go past 65-70C its been great, Do it for GPU&CPU. Clean the fan out and clean the cooling fins of the laptop cooler. I think there is a few tiny thermal pads in there if you do find any don't throw them away reuse them or replace them-

I would also recommend repasting it. Especially because you bought it second hand and the notebook is from 2011.

I had the same notebook some years ago. It ran very hot. Replacing thermal paste helped a lot. In combination with the "Fan Controller" Application, it was o.k..

But had to replace the paste pretty often.

      Hello,
      I am requesting your help. I have an Acer e5-523g, and  I have applied the method with h2ouve mentioned in this forum to activate the amd-v feature, and it worked. But everytime on two, when the system was shutting down, whether intentionally or low battery, the virtualization was going back to deactivate. And I always repeated the same process. Until one day: when I enter in the cmd, everytime I tap “h2ouve -gv vars.txt” or “h2ouve -sv vars_mod.txt” it shows sth like:
       
      Now parsing Variable Information...
      LoadDeviceDriver fail,
      GetLastError=0x2 Failed to get bios data!
      Fail to get Variable Information
       
      My problem is that I don’t really know what LoadDriverDevice means, and how to make it work

      Hello everyone,
      some time by now I flashed a custom Vbios (thank you Klem) on an Acer Predator 15 G9-591 and I started doing some tests about how far I could go overclocking the gtx 970m without running too hot. With the voltage up to 1150mV and something like 300 additional MHz for the core clock, in the strongest stress condition for both Gpu and Cpu ( i7-6700hq undervolted), the Gpu reaches a max temp of 85C (with some 86 spikes but never more than that).
      Considering that soon I'm going to relid both Cpu and Gpu and clean everything in the internals (laptop is 4 years old) I think I'm going to have some additional heatroom.
      I've already tested some further overclocking and I noticed that even if the temperatures remains under 93C (which is just for testing purposes, but after relidding temps could be nicer) graphical glitches occur and after some time most games crash. But my question is, could it be because of lack of power supply? The laptop charger provides 180W 
      Could there be an increase in overclock margins with a 230W psu or something like that? (Obviously with the same 19.5V output)
      If anybody tried something like that on any laptop model, or knows the matter, I'd like to know

      Hello all! Im posting this here in hope to receive some orientation or help regargind my egpu project.
       
      I have my old and trusted Acer 5750G and I’m still using it everyday for work. I’m a photographer and it has worked quite well with some upgrades:
      -Upgraded i5 to i7 2630qm.
      -Upgraded ram, 8gb to 16 gb.
      -Upgraded HD to SSD.
       
      Some facts:
      – I have the unlocked bios so I was able to set the mpci port as “hot pluggable” and I can also deactivate the dedicated nvidia 630m from the bios itself.
      – I have bough this case [PCIe PCI-E EXP GDC External Laptop Video Card Dock / Laptop Docking Station (Mini PCI-E interface Version) ] that will arrive home in 10-15 days.
      – I have ordered a wifi usb card.
      I was thinking in getting a nvidia 1060 6gb and plug it to my old laptop using the mpci port. I ask for your advice and knoledge regarding this:
      1- Is this a good card choice?
      2- Will I face any problem with my setup or there is something important I should take into consideration?
      3- Will software that uses CUDA (photoshop and premiere, for example) get reinforced with the new card?
      4- How much processing power will get lost for the “small” port I will be using?
      Thanks a lot again, and sorry for my english mistakes!!

      Dear all,
      I hope someone can help me out here.
       
      I have an Acer Aspire E4-471g Laptop. Intel Core i5-4210U NVIDIA GeForce 820M 16gb DDR3 RAM 512GB SSD
       
      I have an EXP GDC V8 Beast eGPU adapter. I use a power adapter to juice my eGPU by Dell Netzteil ADP-220AB B 12V 18A 220W P/N Y2515 REV A02
       
      I have a Zotac GeForce GTX1050ti 4GB
       
      The Problem:- I did the normal procedure, disable the eGPU. Took out the wifi and replace it with the mpcie cable.
       
      Switch on the computer and I have a blank screen. No screen at all on the laptop screen nor in the external monitor.
       
      Is there a best solution? I have seen the Setup 1.3 but I will do that if that is really the necessity.
