How long does a gaming laptop last at max preformance?? Please guys come give input for laptop owners

  • 8

I have the new dell g7 15 7500 its very good temps are decent when I run CPU to its max I get high temps to 90 to 100 and dell said this is completely fine buts that's when I overclock it so I'll jus play with my 2.6ghz normally at 60C.

I was curious though how long does a gaming laptop last. I hear people say 2 years if your crazy and running it hardcore and I hear some saying 5 years if you change the thermal paste and clean the fans but I'm curious to know how long will a gaming laptop last if I run the CPU overclocked everyday with temps of 90 to 100C to its MAX

 

How long will a CPU last if I run it max and same with the gpu with temps of 90C on both gpu and CPU my guess is maybe 2 years I hope but for existing laptop owners please give me how long you had your laptop for ;D

This all depends on the quality of components. I have had laptops last for about 4-5 years after doing a re-paste, regular cleaning and re-pasting. However some laptops are not built to keep going for a long time thus no matter how much TLC you put into a machine, it will fail at about the 2 year mark. Seeing how the G7 lineup isn't a consumer brand but more for enthusiast. With regular maintenance. It should go awhile. As for me. I have the Alienware M17 (8th Gen) w/ 2060 and having put Kryonaut, I have been running it for over a year non-stop (I really just leave it on at my desk 24/7 unless I am cleaning it) with no heating issues. I have already had to extend the warranty because I don't see myself picking up a new machine anytime soon.  


I agree with CthulhusBff, it depends on quality of hardware as well as how you maintain it.  with good quality  hardware, as long as you keep the vents clear of obstruction, clean the dust out regulary, and replace the thermal paste with a good quality one, there is no reason you shouldn't get 5+ years out of it.  I have had 2 Sony Vaio's in the past that both lasted over 5 years, one of them is actually going on  about 10 years now still running with the only issue being the hinge for the screen is broken and the lid won't stay open.  It's now a linux test box on my network.  My current setup is a Alienware 15 r3 with an i7, 16 Gb DDR4 and 3 drives (2 SSDs and 1 SATA) and is still going strong at 3.5 years.  I turn it off at nights, however runs every day for about 16 hours a day.  I have only run it in overclocked mode a few times but most of the time just leave it running the Intel turbo mode.

That's amazing to hear thanks for the feedback bro
