I noticed these temps after downloading Speccy.. My laptop keyboard is warm to the touch. The temps sustain at about 113 to 116 F on the motherboard and cpu but spike higher like that for the motherboard occasionally. It's a five year old Dell Inspiron with i3 processor and Windows 10. I know I have a lot of processes on my task manager...can that make the motherboard and CPU run hot? Should I try disabling some unnecessary processes? And how much do I need to worry since it isn't in the red?
I'm not playing games or anything, it's mostly Chrome and Discord running, with some things like Steam in the background.
I did clean my vents but can't get the hatch off to check the fan inside...screwdrivers aren't fitting well enough. Should I keep trying to find a driver that will open the hatch and clean the fan?
Ugh not sure where the attachment went. Here's the link.
