Now I'm not one to normally worry about temps.
Most solid state electronic devices have a 10 year service life; so even a halving is a 5 year life.
But I'm concerned because laptops are such expensive beasts
The CPU is an I7 4710HQ, and is idling at 55*C.
This looks pretty normal.
Running at non-turbo speeds, it maxes out at about 71~75*C, which is good enough.
At turbo (on AC power) I see up to 85*C. This is quite a bit higher than my replaced laptop (same model, faulty screen).
I get throttling with Furmark running at the same time as IntelXTU; hits 90*C and throttles 10% but the GPU is bloody cool running (75-80*C).
I can only come to two conclusions.
1. The CPU has too much\little paste.
2. the GPU is BETTER cooled in this one, therefore the CPU is absorbing all that heat (shared twin heatpipe).
What do we think? I've tried 3 repastes, and this is the closest to 'as good as it was' as I can get.
