I have a HP Pavilion dv4-1120us using Intel 2.00 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5800. I suspect I'm having temperature problems, so I installed SpeedFan to alert me when the core temperature gets too high. Unfortunately, I don't know what "too high" is, or what the optimal temperature should be.

I found these pages at Intel's site, but they're just technical enough that I'm not sure that they refer to my CPU:
http://www.intel.com/design/core2duo/documentation.htm
http://download.intel.com/design/intarch/designgd/320028.pdf

Furthermore, I think they tell what the "maximum" is but not the "normal" range.

Can anyone help me out?

The thermal specification for your CPU is 85C so anything over that is "eoo hot" .

If your CPU overheats the unit should shut down .

I saw that page, but I didn't know if "Thermal Specification" meant "normal" or "maximum". Thanks for the quick response!

The "thermal specification" listed is the maximum safe operating temp.

Normally the CPU should run well below that .

For example , the thermal spec for mine is 65C
Right now I have the C)PU overclocked from 2.99GHz to 3.2GHz & it's running at 39C .
