Gilly the only way to tell if its outside normal range is to go to Acer and find the specs for your model. 56c doesn't sound warm, my laptop runs at 65c under 50% load.

It sounds normal.

82c is hot, but still within the 'safe' range. If the GPU gets much hotter though, it's time to sacrifice a little quiet for cooling

also laptops run much warmer dont they Usually they do because of the constricted space.

Right now its something for you to watch, thats a good thing. If it starts changing then its time to act, thats where monitoring comes in.

I clean out my laptop every 2 months because its prone to running hotter. You will know when it starts getting too hot. You will start having random errors, crashes, response will slow, etc.. All things to watch for

Honestly? Not a lot. It depends on whether you have any front or side intake fans already. If not, then a single 80mm rear exhaust won't make too much difference.

It won't hurt, but I wouldn't expect miracles

Temperature Question
I have had my current PC for about three weeks. I just noticed this temp as I usually focus on the CPU and SSD temps. == There is a motherboard temp called CPUTIN. It is showing 91 degrees. What is this measuring and could this be accurate? What should it be? Thanks,
