How to properly use the cooler boost function?
« on: 08-August-17, 04:39:51 »

Hey guys,

I just got my new [font="Amazon Ember", Arial, sans-serif]MSI GT72VR Dominator Pro[/font][/url], and I am loving it, aside from the touchpad which I find really buggy....but thats sort of off-topic.

The main reason I bought this laptop was for gaming and accessibility, as I am sure most who have an MSI product do as well. However, I still want to preserve my laptop for as long as possible, and that means keeping it in good shape. I heard that abusing the cooler boost function can cause your fan to die prematurely. I assumed that you should use it anytime you are gaming, but I also heard that you should engage cooler boost a little before gaming. How do you use this function properly?

I would appreciate any assistance. Thank you.

also should mention my laptop is roughly 5 years old now, with the oem fan, works great still no noise or bad sound from it, rpm is good and with cooler boost on it still makes no noise to be worried about, and this is after many many hours of gaming using the boost, so i honestly would not worry about hurting the fan

Thanks Corporal,

I frequently play games 6+ hours, so understandably I am concerned about my fans just dying...but then again without the cooler boost the temperature could kill my pc. Man I love Catch-22's.

Anyways, while I have you here, is g-sync really worth it? I ran a benchmark with g-sync active and my graphics card performance was poor, but when I took v-sync off it performed much better.

I wouldn't be worried about the fans dying you can always purchase replacement fans to use make sure to take care of your CPU and GPU top priority

also i ment to mention if you are worried about temps getting to high, i just today decided to try a new thermal compound IC diamond ive never used it before and figured id give it a shot, i normally use noctua which it had on it before, i was at 85c cpu load and 80c gpu load, after applying the IC diamond i went down to 67c cpu load and 54-57c gpu load, i couldnt believe it, i could not have this thing in my lap before it would burn my leg, now i can barely feel it, and this is with out cooler boost on, with it i barely hit 50c on the gpu and 54c on cpu im blown away
