Medion Erazer P10

MD35007 is the model name. I have problems with the GPU getting to warm it gets nearly 90 degrees. And it does have problems to cool down when I play games. I cant find any bios updates and new drivers any place on the internet for the pc either. The computer housing seems to get really warm to. And the motherboard is not even mounted proberly, some screews are missing. But what can i do with the heat problem? And any tips on the fans? Only possible with 2 or can i have more?

The 2 connectors for additional fans on MB are responding to power/heat management and not best option if you are looking for good airflow. For example, the adjustment of fan's RPM can be related to CPU temperature (ONLY) and completely ignore the temperature of additional video card (which looks like the problem in the first place).

Bios is related to the motherboard and even if feels old it does it's job as intended. Update it will not improve your hardware but most likely will unlock some options (if any available) which were hid in the first place for different reasons (security and/or stability). Overall, it doesn't help to better cooling.

 

Covering/exposing air grid and adding fans it's all about the best airflow and all depends on existing hardware and the case type. Hence the specialist recommendation. Depending on how is the airflow around the video card you can have a inward front or bottom fan installed (with dust filter) and maybe compensate with a fan like this https://cdn.ready-market.com/106/2a07ce3d//Templates/pic/TTC-004_01.jpg?v=d8ad8fe3 under the video card (positioning will make the difference between useless and efficient). Depending the CPU heat sink additional fans can be installed on top back or up top of the case. Again, all have to be done in order to create a proper airflow  so the components which are generating heat (chipset, RAM, HDD) to be cooled properly without moving the hot air over the other components. On same note an airflow which can't reach the hot components it's as dangerous as having none. Still recommend and specialist for this job.

Hello @MrErnest ,

 

can you please provide the MSN number of your unit?

It is an 8-digits number starting by 300 and printed underneath your unit.

 

Regards,

Gehringer

Hi @MrErnest 

 

Yes, you can install additional fans but I would strongly recommend to let a specialist doing that mostly because 2 fans are not the same and aside choosing the right fan is important the location as well. A specialist can also have a look if by any chance the fans on your video card are not working properly.

 

Other than that, a bios update will not solve the overheating problem on your video card (never does).

 

Cheers.

I heard there was some problems with ventilations on this computer. And that the vents should bee moved to the bottom of the computer housing. Since there is dust filter and so on there. And its also really sad that its not possible to connect more then 2 fans for cooling. Since the motherboard only let you connect 2. The reason i wanted a new bios update is because the one that is installed is a bit old, from 2019. And I also wanted to bee able to download the drivers (that came with the pc) but there is absolutely no place to download them from.

Hi, when I moved one of the fans down to the bottom of the computer case (where the dust filter is) I got a drop in both GPU and system temperatur. The GPU is working at around 77 to max 80 degrees when playing games now. And system is stable with no reboots or shutdowns. So I guess the airflow is good now. The CPU temp is around 50 degrees while I play games.
