    Intel Core-i3 2350M 2nd Gen temperature test/need help!

    Ok, so i replace the thermal paste on my processor today and it is showing a temperature of 46-48 degrees celsius with normal usage and it is barely touching 70 degrees with an stress test in cpu-z {i'm measuring the temperature with speedfan while cpu-z does its thing}.
    Is it an ok temperature or it is too hot for a core-i3 2nd gen?
    The ambient room temperature is 29 degrees celsius.

    Those temperatures seem good to me. I have known stress tests take the temperature up to over 80C. Intel core i3 -2350M processors can cope with up to 85C. See the spec details below and note the Tjunction temperature (Junction Temperature is the maximum temperature allowed at the processor die).

    Thanks philc43 for your reply
    It has been 1 full day now and the laptop seems alright
    It is cool and it is not becoming hot where the processor is located but rather where the fan is so i think the thermal paste is doing its job
    It is a Fujitsu AH531 if you are wondering
    Again thanks alot

    That's fine. My laptop reaches above 80c at idle and that is normal.

    Thanks RoasterMen for your answer.
    This mean mine is actually pretty decent with some quite cheap thermal paste!
