On the Intel site, Link to your CPU, after Tjunction you have 105ºC. This means that it stands up to that temperature.

Normal may be a matter of opinion, but for me, normal is between 50ºC to 70ºC for low usage and up to 80ºC if all the processors are working close to 100%. If somehow the 90ºC are passed I would say that something is wrong.

  • If it was usefull, help me by voting it up ;)

Those temperatures look fine to me for that kind of configuration. I've seen far worse.


my computer runs at 80C at 40% and 95C at 70% and 105+C at 100%, and with a cooling pad runs about 20C cooler for them all. i think that is normal for a laptop with a crappy cooler xD
