Hello everyone,


I've bought less than a week an ACER ASPIRE VN7-591G-77FH specs:

Intel Core i7-4720HQ (6M Cache, up to 3.60 GHz), 8GB DDR3L SDRAM, 1TB HDD, 39.624 cm (15.6 ") LED (1920 x 1080) IPS, Intel HD Graphics 4600 + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 2GB, Gigabit Ethernet, WLAN 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0, Windows 8.1 (64-bit)


I've checked the temperatures cores with "Temp-Core", playing Dark Souls II for example, and they've reached 90-95°C with 20-30-40% loading. Is it normal?


During normal using the cores are between 30-40°C.


Thanks in advice and sorry for my bad English.


Best regards,

A quick google for the specs on this processor give its maximum operating temperature as 100oC.


If you are correct about the loading you are putting on it - up to 40% - I would be concerned about this. Being a week old, dust and dirt is not very likely so it does suggest a lack of cooling. It is possible the CPU fan is not working properly, or the heatsink is not mounted properly or with the correct amount of thermal paste. Given that it is only one week old I would speak to your supplier about this problem. Since I believe you live in the EU warranty should not be a problem.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
