ASUS TUF FX504 Gaming Review With Thermals & GPU Overclocking


ASUS TUF FX504 Gaming Review With Thermals & GPU Overclocking So I'm back here now with the ASUS FX504 and I was not happy at all with the performance of this laptop but luckilyit has come around it has redeemed itself finally and it's taken a while soif you're not experienced with pcs a lot of people would just get this out of thebox and they'll find their performance so disappointing as I pointed out in myfirst video I was getting some throttling I was getting GPU stuttering aswell on the Nvidia 1050 T I was stuttering like really bad it just keptcutting out like it was a power supply issue the clocks would drop they wouldhave so in order to get around this what I found is that you actually have to usewhen you game or you want maximum performance you have to use this righthere which is that function if five key I'll push that now so in the silent modethat's actually turning down the power limits is restricting the power limitson this laptop even on balance mode which I thought would be perfectly finefor gaming it's restricting the performance and then over boost and whatI've also done is run Windows Update which I highly recommend to do andyou'll see right here this system fermier this is what you need to do soonce this runs it will update the BIOS then to version number 312 and onceyou're on 312 for me that has solved the problems with the GPU stuttering I wasgetting horrendous performance and what was happening with the CPU too it waslimiting it down to 2.5 gigahertz and there seemed to be no way around that soall cores were running only at 2.5Ghz but now I've freed things up here so what I usedwas a throttle stop so it's not a stop you can actually change a few settingsyou can also use Windows X to you but I found, sorry Intel X to you extremetuning utility and I found that that wasn't actually taking the undervaulting what I was doing so I've under bolted here negative 125as you can see right here in the settings so that's on the CPU and theCPU cache so I can show you this now at the start of the video because what'shappening it will reach 89 degrees it doesn't seem to go over that but you'llsee down below here in red where it says yes or I'm putting on the mouse pointerright now that's thermal throttling so whateveryou do it will actually run into thermal throttling even on the overboost thenoisy fan mode just to also point out that for the duration of this video Iwill be running and overclock on the GPU so I've managed to overclock nowhopefully you can see this 920 megahertz on the memory clock I could probably goa little bit higher but I noticed around 9:50 that it would crash I can't go over950 and for me 920 was a good spot there so the core clock as well I can put thatup to 160 so the first came here I'm looking at isfortnight Battle Royale you're probably familiar with it so I'm running it onthe high settings that's the preset I'm going to go withhere 120 frames per second cap and you can see the frame rate hope you can seethat around 80 frames per second so it's not too bad it's certainly not thefastest and if you're not happy with that then I highly recommend going forthe lower settings so something like medium probably would actually be a lotfaster than that so there's when you're perfectly fineplay ball frame at running really good there's nostuttering with the GPU anymore and I'm putting in two days very soonoh yeah you got me now to Grand Theft Auto 5 so I'll show you the settings I'mgoing to go where they are on higher settings so some of them very high liketexture quality and the shader and even tweaked up for example the populationdensity and variety that's right on the maximum because that is more CPU basedso we can get away with pushing that one quite high and when you take a look atthe frame rate it's close to around 80 frames per second and it's very playableit gets up to over 100 as well you listen to this next track of courseI just a few spiders there now and then that you will see it's kind of normalwhen it's loading things in first and the fare noises pretty loud you probablymight be able to pick up some of that actually on the mic at the moment thatI'm using I just have to use it a net over boost mode as I pointed out at thestart of this video just to keep it from thermal throttling so the CPU is holdingup well you can see it's around about at least 3.2 or over gigahertz sometimes itdips down to two but it's not actually taxing the CPU that much this game thisnext title is called rec fest so it's just like that Destruction Derby gamereally that you played on PlayStation way back in the day you could say it's aspiritual successor to that one so the settings I'm going to go with with thisgame is graphics on the high setting Ultra setting I feel the framerate isjust going to drop down a little bit too much let's jump into a game now this titles project cars so I'm going togo with higher kind of settings here well some of them medium some of themare high and I feel this is just best to keep that maximum frame rate so let'scheck out this one and see just how well it performs on this hardwarealright so dips down to 38 set to start here but that's normal trending and allthe other cars 60 frames space taken here to stopthat's not bad if I can make it it's out of thisgrab hold position whoa whoa whoa whoa all I might start making that corner noall right so my gameplays not on show you here more than performance that waspretty boy this one is Kingdom Come deliverancethis is on the medium sitting preset I'm gonna go with so this is one of thosegames that if you put it on high I just feel the framerate it's gonna be alittle too slow see how this one performs okay so around50 frames per second this is in a village here let's take a look at my guythere my stats the armor it took a little while to load in actually there'sa little bit of lag with that I think that's just the textures and thingspopping in so that is to be expected it's quite a demanding game this oneI'll see if I can will you challenge the guards here to have a fight stick a fewerrors in them that should annoy them Oh Linux big that kill them straight awayand how the gods doing nothing don't bucket yeah okay that should teachhim no he's down no bailiff tennis guard still doing nothing okay so you thisonce as you can see really playable even on medium graphics still looks good wellhe just hit a shield yeah I did is he gonna react to that no I know he'sstill not interested other AI in this game sometimes is silly okay so you canarrow you'll they're funny guys attention so this title here is the witcher 3 it'son the high preset you see it's about 50 frames per second dipping down to 49 Ilook a little bit laggy actually in stuttery so I feel like probably gonna have torun this one on medium let me see what happens if you want to get into a fighthere with the guards she drew a sword she okay start around 49 this is stillperfectly playable if they kill me straightaway and no gaming test would becomplete without testing out a Vulcan game so this is running on Vulcan notDirectX 3d this game is Wolfenstein and I have set it to 1080p the uber preseton the video quality profile there and we'll check it out and see that framerate is really good at the moment so this is quite and I fast gamed this oneas the frame rate does drop down a little so the last time I'm going tocheck out is Call of Duty World War 2 on the recommended settings which isbasically tweaked up higher settings and the frame rate very good and I'm aboutto die this is too many of them okay Wow they can completely over ran me thereone more attempt even with this much action going on whoops friendly firefriendly fire yeah it's keeping up and handing this game really well alright sowhat about fan noise as I mentioned a few game you really have to use thatover boost which is maximum RPMs on both of the fans for the CPU and the GPU andit's loud it's up around an average of about 55 decibels so it's not good I'llgive you sample of that fan noise and as far as surface temperatures gothey actually check out because we're running that fan on really high speedthat the keyboard seems to also have an intake around here where the keys are sothe keyboard doesn't get warm touchpad doesn't either palm rest is also verygood as you can see now just quickly demonstrate to you so it's around 32degrees the keyboard is after 2 hours of gaming 35 palm rest 28 the touchpadaround 25 degrees so when you're and of course again that caller booster modethat the thermals are very very good now when you run on the balanced mode itdoes get a lot warmer it's gonna be up around 35 to palm rest and it doeschange things then okay so there we go the laptop has redeemed itself once youuse that cooler booster mode and you're under vault you get excellentperformance so all of the games out there so I could just go on and ontesting more and more games every game out that's going to run in 1080pperfectly fine it's also going to have around 50 60 frames per second mostgames on high settings as some games you will have to turn off some of thoseadvanced settings the ones that are really taxing on the GPU the CPU runsperfectly fine you don't normally see any throttling it will throttle down alittle bit even with my under vault of - 125 would throttle stop but what doesbother me is you have to run that over burst mode and so that means the fannoise around 55 decibels is really really annoying you want to use aheadset you want to use something to block out that sound so that is reallyjust the only con that I can see that the temperatures are good it's just thatfan noise it's far too loud if you ask me .
