Hi,

 

I am using a Sony Vaio Pro 13:

 

i5 4200U CPU @ 1.60Ghz   2.29Ghz

 

with

 

Intel HD 4400 Integrated Graphics

 

I decided to check the temperatures because my laptop was feeling a little hot and I don't want to damage it. I ran speedfan but I'm not entirely sure what it's telling me, or what temperatures are ideal/problematic.

 

According to speedfan, when I am running the game:

 

HD0 = 32c

Temp1 = 62c

Core0 = 37c

Core1 = 38c

 

I'm not too concerned as I'm pretty sure I've felt it hotter than this, but it got me wondering what temps I should look out for? Especially if I try to run more demanding games.  I assume it's the integrated graphics which is represented by Temp1? is 62c an Ok temp for that?

What would be considered too hot for this machine?

 

I've tried looking this up and all I can find is that my i5 processor has a max temp of 100c, although that's not the GPU which is what I assume is getting hot, also I'm not sure if that still applies with this machine because it's very slim and I guess everything is pretty close together.

 

Thanks for any help/guidance you can give.

 

EDIT: Got up to 66c just now, but that is while plugged in, and that is the highest I've seen it. Thanks.

You really shouldn't worry unless it gets above 80C. Those temps are normal.
