Hi, guys. I bought myself an Asus Rog Strix G17, and I was thinking to use a cooling pad for it. A friend of mine told me that this laptop got Intelligent Cooling and that a Cooling Pad can actually harm it. Can you give me any advice on it?

'Intelligent Cooling', pfft. Marketing mumbo-jumbo that doesn't mean jack... but if it's drawing in customers, then props to Asus' marketing team, because it's working as intended.

A cooling pad isn't even necessary. All you need to do is raise the back end of the laptop. This will improve ventilation.
No real need to throw 20-30USD on some fancy cooling pad - which, by the way, it's the elevation that's contributing the most to the enhanced cooling, and not the fans than some manufacturers slap on 'em.

I wouldn't worry about it. Asus usually have pretty well cooled laptops. Cooling pads applied more to older laptops that commonly had heating problems.
I suggest, if you are worried about CPU and GPU temps, that you keep an eye on them. Laptop CPU and GPU temps can be from 40C to 80C and still OK.
