    I bought this laptop, and I notice that it gets a little hot. At HWMonitor it is around 50/60 ° and sometimes has peaks of 80 °. It’s normal? The surface of the notebook in the upper left corner is also a little hot.

      Hi, based on our tests, it’s normal. Our unit idles at 45 deg C. At its max peak, it reaches 98 deg C, and drops to a stable 70 deg C when on load (less aggressive turbo boost).

      The upper left corner is hotter as that’s where one of the heat sink is at. I think it depends on what you’re doing. If the system is on load, it can be expected that the surface runs warm.

      But we can say that it’s the way the notebook is designed. You can use the ASUS utilities to ramp up fan speed to improve thermal dissipation performance, but of course, it will be noisier.

    Thanks, in fact I noticed that on heavier loads the laptop reaches 90 / 100º, but drops and stabilizes at 70º
