Hello all! 

 

I am moderately new to the world of computing, so do please excuse my ignorance! 

 

I am using: Asus X552C; Windows 8.1. 

 

At rest, my computer is running at around 50 celsius (Using Core Temp), and after an hour or so on a game (Rome Total War 2), it is running at 90 celsius.  

I first suspected the fan and/or thermal paste.  Therefore, this morning I re-applied the paste (GC Extreme), being careful not to create any bubbles etc.  However, it has made no difference.  

 

Please advise on what to do! 

 

Regards,

 

Matthew

What are you using to measure temp?  Your first guess would have been mine also.

Core Temp. 

Just downloaded CPUID HWMonitor for a second opinion. 

I'm stress-testing it using Prime 95 (Torture Test designed to test CPU - Maximum heat) and it's stable at around 70 celsius which is better.  I reapplied the paste using a little less. 

 

However, it's still around 50 on idle, which seems hot?

About the size of a pea dead center seems to be the best, I checked the specs and the gaming ability of it quite impressive.  Many have spent a lot more with not a ton better results, hopefully your fright is over.

That temperature is fine because laptop cooling is not superior compare to massive desktop cooling. Your CPU will throttle itself when it reach 100C, so there's nothing to worry about.

Sorry, I'm an idiot.  I just checked task manager, and Prime95 had started itself, so was still running in addition to the Google chrome. 

 

What are the threshold values I should be getting? Just so I don't have to keep bothering you all everytime I got a reading that looks different?

 

Thanks.

Well, download and run CPUID HWMonitor(http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html), let this thing runs in the background while you are playing game. After that check the CPUID HWMonitor before you shut down the computer, remember ambient temperature does impact your PC temperature. For instance, if the environment is hot then your body will feels hot as well.

Yep, I've got that on here, I was just wondering at what temperature I should be worried about for normal office type work, and what temperature I should be worried about for a game? (Presuming ambient temperature is reasonable).

Never expect your laptop to be cool like any desktop, because laptop using blower style cooling fan and small heatsink while us desktop are using AIR CONDITIONER fans and a big heatsink that can scratch your finger.

Hi again, 

 

Sorry to bother you, but it's running at a max of 75 celsius with just chrome open again, what could the possible causes of this be?

Also, I don't know if this is a bug in the monitoring software, but it's saying my fan is running at 25500 RPM, which seems about 10x too fast to me? Previously it was at around 2500 RPM.
