However, there is a limit to everything and if the temperature crosses a limit, the laptop will turn itself off.
Many users of Asus FX553 laptop say that the processor reaches as high as 88 degrees Celsius and GPU reaching as high as 80 degrees. Excessive heat is not good for either graphics card or the processor and can significantly reduce the lifespan of your Asus FX553 laptop.
