Hello there.

I have a hot problem with my zenbook pro duo. When I'm rendering a project in blender, my gpu and cpu get quite hot (85-87C). My laptop is always plugged in using the maximum battery life, I'm using Performance mode, I've cleaned the fans and my room temperature is around 18-19C.

The problem is that the fans are not cranking up even if my CPU and GPU are super hot and working at a full capacity. I've tried 3'rd party apps to ramp up the fans but nothing works.

Is there anything that I can do to get the fan speed up?

Thank you!


  • tell me , If you not using any heavy application like AAA games and rendering in blender software, tiil CPU and GPU gets super hot?

  • Well, it's not getting how when I'm surfing the web or watchim movies or working in Unity. The only game that I'm playing is World Of Tanks and the temperature is between 80-85C.

    The problem is that the fans don't ramp up that much when I'm rendering or playing wot. Now it's winter and it's cold. I don't know what I'm going to do in the summer with this laptop.

  • do one-thing, delete or disable all Running background applications.

    delete all registered application ns under task scheduler .

    disable all background applications under battery .

    disable all startup applications

  • I've already tried that.

    But that's not the problem. The problem is that the fans don't ramp up. I don't know why Asus don't have a app to ramp up the fans on a Pro laptop. It's worse than my MacBook Pro when it comes to fan speed

    if possible, ask the shopkeeper to replace laptop or else take your laptop to nearest Asus service center.

    further no more ideas from my side. sorry'.

  • It doesn't make any difference if you are running few apps in the background. Those barely take anything from the laptop resources. We are talking here about I7 or I9 with 6 or 8 cores, 16/32 GB RAM, Rtx2060 and 6 GB VRAM, depending of his configuration. I have the maximul configuration and I can confirm that it gets extremely hot, at a point that I'm afraid to even go ahead with the processing because I don't want to fry the laptop.

    Our mistake is that we believed that a laptop can handle the power of its components. No laptop on the market can, unless it had liquid cooling or has like 8 kg. Laptops aren't made for heavy usage, this is what they won't say in the commercials.

    So there's nothing you can do about it.

  • I have the 6 core configuration.

    I don't think you've understand my problem. Why does this laptop have fans if they don't boost up when I'm using loading the CPU and GPU? That is the problem. The fans are not ramping up. That is the problem. I can't find any working 3'rd party app to control the fan speed.

  • It depends. Install Intel extreme tunning to get more accurate logs to see what rellly happens.

    My asus app has a tool that can check the hardware. At some point, it will test the fan. If the fan doesn't go at maxim, you have a hardware problem. You can also redo the check with Intel Extreme tunning for confirmation. If it does go to maximum, then what you think is hot, it's not hot enough for the laptop settings.

    You can't control the speed of the fan or when it turns on or off.

  • Hello Vlad,

    Currently, fan control is in gaming series.

    Thank you for your feedback and suggestion, I have reported them.

  • Hi,

    you can find laptop cooling pads, that would be your immediate first step while you find another solution

    search techradar best laptop cooling pad 2020

    Did you try Speedfan or Argus Monitor yet? If you go to the alternativeto website, then search for speedfan, you have some alternatives, not sure how accurate the comments are but they suggest only speedfan or argus monitor can actually control fan speeds.

    on my ux430uq Argus reports 'no supported monitoring chip found'

    on my ux430uq Speedfan first reports 'no known chipset detected' even after trying to find smbus addresses.

    ref: ***************************** CHIPSET SMBUS

    Chipset : No known chipset detected

    SMBus Base Address : 

    SMBus Revision : 

    SMBus I/O Enabled : OFF

  • Thank you for the cooling pads ideea. I'm going to buy one asap.
