    Hello,

    My Qosmio F60 gets quite hot, while gaming and idling, for example, while gaming the cores and GPU get up to around 75-85Celsius, I don't know how hot they are while idling, but my fan ALWAYS pumps out hot air, comparing to all my friends laptops, they don't pump out hot heat unless gaming.

    Also while gaming, I have been getting FPS drops while playing, even if I used to run a game on high 60FPS, no drops, now it's on low dropping down to about 6 at times.

    Please help.
    Thanks, Harrison

    Hello

    Sorry but here some questions for better understanding:
    Do you use original Toshiba preinstalled OS or your own version?
    Do you use Toshiba display driver?

    While gaming is your notebook placed on the desk?
    Are all cooling vents free?
    Do you use newest games?

    Which power plan do you use while gaming?
    Do you use maximum level on game graphic settings?

    Have you tried to play with all power and graphic settings to see if the result will be a bit better?

    Hi

    I assume your cooling ventilators are clogged by dust and debris.
    You should try to clean this using compressed air spray.

    The FPS drops might be the result of higher temperature.
    Why? Because the GPU would be clocked down in order to decrease the heat dissipation.

    So clean the fans and check if this helps…

    @Silas:
    Yes
    80% Sure

    No, on my lap, on a cooling pad (not on, the power bit broke).
    Yes
    Some of them are 'New' some are old

    A customized balanced
    If this question is if I use high level graphics in my games? It doesn't change a thing, as I said a game I used to run on highest @ 60FPS, goes down to 20-30 most of the time, and when fights happen, about 1-8. The only thing putting it on lowest achieves is increasing that 20-30 FPS, to 60.

    As above, I have tried the ingame graphics, but not power plan. My problem is I changed nothing in my power or ingame settings, and it started dropping. I don't want to run the game on super low when I used to be able to run it higher.

    @MisterX
    Well, a little bit, but recently (within the last year, over the last year) I was having freezing problems, so I took the laptop in 3 times, and after 2 weeks (each time) I got it back, saying they had fixed the problem, the first time they replaced the hard drive, and couple of other small bit I can't remember, the second time they replaced some cooling stuff, some ram, and some small bits. The third time they replaced the motherboard, and some small bits, what finally fixed the problem, but what I'm saying is, some of the cooling stuff has been replaced recently.

    And I'll try, but I don't really want to be opening up my laptop, but i'll try.

    You should not disassemble the unit to clean the fans… using compressed air spray should be good enough to keep the fans clean and to get the dust removed. Just blow the air thought the cooling ventilators and this should help to remove the dust
