I am a little put off by my CPU having temp spikes.

It's not enormous, but it fluctuates between 25-55 degrees when browsing Chrome and using Skype.

At idle, it never spikes over 45 degrees.

Right now, it goes down to about 35, then jumps up to 55.

I can tell it happening, because my CPU fan is set to auto, so I can literally hear the fan pick up speed, then slow down, then pick up speed.

The fan jumps from 900-1050 rpm.

This is not normal, and I am worried.

Please, any help would be appreciated.


PS: I just reapplied proper thermal paste, and made sure it was mounted properly.

depending what your looking at in your browser will effect temperatures!

Both Google Chrome and Skype are resource hogs and require lots of memory and processor so not uncommon to find increase in processor temps.



As long as your computer is not randomly restarting / shutting down or stalling / freezing I wouldn't be to concerned about it although keep and eye on the temps.


Another thing which causes temps to change is the ambient temperature / environment where the computer is being used.


Remove the side cover and physically touch the heat sink and how it feels, warm to hot is normal and if you are able to touch it and it doesn't feel to hot to touch then I would say it's OK.
