Jump to solution

I have installed new BIOS 1.8 cooling hasn't changed... I did install this version as i was hoping wacom cintiq issues will be resolved (they aren't), and I don't play games so TT isn't issue that much... pretty much i dont dont care about this laptop anyway and i will sell it as i am tired of waiting dell 1 month + to plug in cintiq and confirm problem...

I am on 1.2.1 bios still and my machine has just started overheating during PUBG.  It has never done this before.  It is super hot in the area above the keyboard but the air coming from the fans in the back isn't really all that hot.  It makes me think the heat sink isn't working right.

I have G5 5587 and after upgraded my BIOS from 1.3 to 1.8 I have problem with temperature. Cooling fan starts too late. Now I can't downgrade my BIOS..

Our only hope is that since the second generation G7 will have the alienware comand center, they will extend that our first gen G7´s.

Right now I´ve got the temps under control but

 

1- I have the I5 8300H GTX 1050Ti setup, and so it doesnt heat up as much as the i7.

2- Undervolted and reduced the turbo.

3- Using a laptop pad to keep things cool (I can lower the temp between 5 to 10 degrees).

There´s also  the Dell Fan Utility, but since it only runs on test mode it´s not quite a good solution.

We can only hope that dell listen to us and changes the fan curve, so lets keep this topic active, Lets all post at least once a day every day until they change the curve or give us the Command Center.

Hopefully most of you saw this thread on reddit. Some beautiful soul came up with a fan utility which allows you to set a functioning fan curve. I haven't tried it myself, but instead I installed the latest (beta) version of HWinfo, which now also allows you to force the fans into spinning.

Sadly that is not quite true. The new G series will only have a lite version of the Alienware Command Center without fan control (as stated by DELL-Chris M here).

the site says the issue is solved, how is this solved? I stilll couldn't find any working way to confugure fan speed on my Dell G3 The fans are way too loud when CPU continously stays at 50-65 degrees C which is a completely safe temperature for a CPU, I really need to control this, because this is a gaming laptop after all! I don't want my laptop to be loud when it's doing nothing or just playing a movie or something

Apparently Dell's stance is that they don't care about is. I literally just purchased this laptop and I'm waiting for it to be delivered, and everywhere I go I'm seeing these thermal issues. I'm tempted to cancel my order and purchase from another manufacturer that allows seeings of fan profiles as I'm a user that would keep them maxed out for maximum budget performance.

I recommend looking at MSI GF 63. Thin and light, has i7 8750h option and has decent gaming performance, good battery life and fan control. Saw it and tested it a little in a computer shop today and I really like it, really considering selling my Dell G3 now and getting GF63 instead. Oh it's also got a bezelless screen.
