New Asus laptop making too much noise

Hey guys my new laptop just came and it's making so much noise when I'm running games. I've never had a "gaming" laptop so i'm not sure if this is normal. The performance is also worse than I thought, playing h1z1 and Euro Truck Sim 2, the fps is great but there's always huge spikes every now and then.

The laptop is this https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/GL702VM-GC010T-ASUS-ROG...

cheers

They are always loud when gaming. Enable vsync it should lower strain and might even remove the spikes (could be temp related)

I tweaked around with the nvdia control panel and it seemed to help a tad, but nothing noticeable and still not as good as I think it should be seeing as it nearly cost £1500!

I'm not a computer guru, but i think it might be my fans. I've pulled out two cpu temperature reports while playing H1Z1 and Euro Truck Sim 2. If you don't mind, can you help me figure out if my laptop is overheating or not? I appreciate the help mate.

Both were done after the tweaks!

Thanks mate

Doesn't seem to be overheating. 76c is actually a pretty good CPU temp in a laptop running hard

If the laptop's fans are just naturally loud under load, you might also try some headphones that better isolate outside sounds while gaming. Either the kind of earbuds with silicone eartips that create a tight seal in your ear canal, or closed-back studio monitor style headphones that seal around the outside of your ears.

Combining relatively powerful hardware with a relatively slim design will undoubtedly require its cooling system to work harder.

The noise is normal for this laptop. As it is slim it will make the fans to speed up to keep temps down.

Not sure if your performance is still "huge spikes" but I have a very similar laptop ( the only difference is the CPU is a little newer ) I had the same issue with high frames but random lag spikes, the solution was to go into Nvidia control panel Go to manage 3d settings > Maximum pre-rendered frames and switch this to 1 ( I don't know if a higher number makes a difference ) and this stopped the lag spikes for me, games looks great on this. Good luck!
