Hi guys. I've been having a problem with my laptop to where the temperature sky rockets when it does anything moderately cpu intensive, and it idles @ 55*c. I've replaced the thermal paste with AS5 and it brought the temperature from 80c idle to 55c idle and it shuts down when I try to play games. When I feel the heatpipe coming from the cpu to the heatsink on the inside of the computer, the region around where the cpu is gets extremely hot but the thermal pipe and heatsink do not. Is it possible for the heatpipe to leak out and not be able to transfer heat anymore? I've reinstalled windows and it didn't fix it. I had taken it to bestbuy as a last chance resort to find a problem. They apparently did a pre-windows diagnostic(i assume not cpu intensive) and they returned it, no problem found. The warranty is out so I can't return it to Asus. The model number is M51S. Hope you can help me out with this bizarre problem.
