A temporary solution to heating the phone in play? When will an update be released that will fix this? Help me please


  • No solution for now

    It's easily hot when use it for daily not mention for gaming

    For now we can hope for the next update they allow this phone to run at 300 MHz because if you use use dynamic and ultra durable mode it lock your cpu speed at 845 MHz and if you use advanced mode lv 1 it lock your cpu at 1.31 GHz. That's one of the reason why this phone so hot because it use high cpu clock even at idle

  • I have the same problem. My rog 5 ultimate is hot to the touch and sensors are at 39c to 43c while doing ordinary tasks(spotify in the backgroud, reddit browsing or even when downloading apps). Is this normal? While gaming it seems to go up to 45c to 50c after playing for about an hr or so.

    @B 4 C 2 D 0 I guess not... Mine never exceeds 30° when I don't play games.. And even then it's only at 35 (normal not that stressful games)... If it gets hotter I use the fan and stay at around 38° most of the time. I don't use x mode tho..

  • Thanks for the reply. My temps are as follows even while doing nothing taxing to the phone(texting, writing down this comment):

    System steady at 29c to 32c

    Cpu stable at 34c to 39c sometimes even hitting 43 to 46c when i play tunes in the background.

    Gpu same as cpu temps.

    Do i have an overheating issue? Should i just returnthe unit?

    Thanks for the reply

  • This has nothing to do with clockspeed and everything to do with how the cooling is build on the phone. Even if you limit the CPU to 300mhz, which isnt possible as the minimum is 800ish mhz, it wouldnt make the phone less cool because the phone is designed to be the heatsink. All a lowering of the clockspeed would achieve is that it would take slightly longer for the phone to heat up from a powered off state.

    @B 4 C 2 D 0 As already mentioned in another topic, you don't have to worries, those temperatures are very well within normal operation.

  • Although the rog 5 does not have the best cooling system all the temperatures seen in this thread are normal.

    For the temperatures quoted "especially at rest" without indicating the ambient temperature or how the device is installed / supported, you cannot make a comparison.
