I downloaded Coretemp because I was curious to see how hot my CPU was getting and apparently when I'm not even playing any video games it gets to about 70C...is this normal?


I have a Asus G73 Gaming Laptop, a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 Graphics Card, and an Intel i7 Q720 1.60GHZ.

Here is a pic of my core temp while idle:

When I'm playing games (IE Fallout New Vegas) it will get to about 80C.

Max. temp. for your processor is listed at 100C, so you should be OK: http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/Intel-Core%20i7%20Mobile%20I7-720QM%20BY80607002907AH%20%28BX80607I7720QM%29.html

I'd like to see a bit lower, but as long, as you're not getting near close to 100C, you should be fine.

How old is this laptop?
Did you try to clean vents with a can of compressed air?
I know after my laptop. It makes a difference.

The laptop is probably about 6 months old.

And I haven't tried cleaning it yet.

I'll probably be getting a laptop cooler for it.

If you live in carpeted room (especially), 6 months is about a right time to give it some blow.
Trust me, it helps.
