Hello all.

Today I purchased an Acer Aspire One AOD270. It contains an Intel Atom N2600.
When I have the computer under a stress test for 15 min (15 min at 100% consumption)
The temperatures of the cores (both) get up to 60C. Is this normal? Or is this too high?
How hot can the CPU get before things get damaged? What temp should I begin to get worried?

Also, Just for general reference -- Do Laptops run hotter then Desktops? are laptops made to withstand high temperatures?

I dont know about your processor, but most processors have a thermal cut out and they cut out at around the 90C mark. Each processor does vary though. this cut out is to stop/reduce damage from overheating.
Laptop processors use less power than the desktop versions and therefore produce less heat (or meant to).
I wouldnt say 60C after 15mins at 100% is much to worry about.
What are you using to measure the temperature?

Just make sure you keep the vents/fans clear of any blockages and dust and you should be ok.

Just wondering why are you stressing the cpu? Most of the time, your cpu won't even reach to it's fullest capacity, so it won't be reaching the highest temperature.

I do the stress test to see that it does not get too hot. However, when watching an online video it can get up to 57/58C. Is this typical for a netbook?

Well that's pretty warm but there is really no concern here.

When you say that is pretty warm, is it normal?

Completly normal. I am writing this reply on me Acer AO521, and my actual core temperature is 62.4 degrees Celsius with 0-30% of my CPU usage.

Yesterday, I even reached 81 degrees while playing Assassin's Creed Revelation on it!

Though if the temperature goes BEYOND 65-70 degrees on your netbook, then its not normal. Am I helping? :)

I would say that is a normal temperature under stress. You must factor in that with a desktop, there is more room for airflow, a larger heatsink, and bigger/more fans. Also, many times people will block the fans on laptops because they are on the bottom or sides, so that certainly does not help much.

If the computer is not locking up or shutting down due to the temperature, it is fine.

So, Is it normal?? or should i send it back? it's under warranty. over time, do the temps start increasing due to the thermal paste?

It's alright budd :) Over time, the temps maybe vary a lil bit but it should be OK. Don't stress yourself about 60 degrees, it is a standard for netbooks like yours. Mine is always at 55 degrees so... >.<

Though if it goes beyond 75 degrees, feel free to post back :)
