    Is this extremely hot for a laptop?


    Hi guys, first time Laptop owner here.

    I'm used to owning a desktop PC and my knowledge about Laptops isn't really good. I want to know if this is normal for my laptop or just too hot?

    CPU and MB are way too hot, as you know the boiling point is 100 degree in C.
    Search youtube on how to disassemble your Laptop Model and clean it up. You might also want to apply new thermal paste for the CPU and check out the fan..

    Dont use speccy its buggy as hell , get the trial version of Aida 64 or use core temp for cpu and gpu-z for graphics temp

    Purchase and use a usb-powered external cooling fan assembly [one giant fan or twin fans]. My two laptops always have such underneath.

    It's also weird that my Laptop isn't throttling down and up.

    The CPU and motherboard temperatures look too high to be real. There are no firm standards governing this and that makes reading temperatures very problematic. Utilities that do this must maintain databases with information on specific hardware. Such databases are always incomplete and may be out of date or contain errors. The result is wrong temperatures.

    The CPU would have not just throttled back but shut down before it reached such temperatures.

    As Archie123 has suggested, try another utility.

    Downloaded core temp now the Processor temps range from 50-55c on idle.

    It's all sorted out now. Thank you.

    Man that Bald Eagle turned into a chicken Dinner that is way too hot you need to take it apart and put new paste on it because i am sure it's probably nothing on it anymore

    Even though you used another program i still would put new paste for the hell of it might see even better temps

    "...Even though you used another program i still would put new paste for the hell of it might see even better temps..." And while the thread stater is at it, add the usb-powered external cooling fan assembly.

    I looked inside my laptop and found out the airflow isn't bad. I wouldn't recommend a cooling fan if the airflow is good enough. Speccy is just that bad at monitoring temperatures.

    If my laptop is going over it's maximum operating temps then the CPU and the GPU should've throttled down but it didn't.

    Marking this as solved.
