ASUS K61IC high temps under idle and load

Hello guys, i swear its been more than a year since i last visited xP

Anyway straight to the point, I have my friends old laptop an ASUS K61IC

-intel core 2 duo t6600 2.1Ghz 4gb ddr2 ram and a gt220m

Notebooks & Ultrabooks - K61IC

and basically the laptop has a dedicated cpu and a dedicated gpu fan. so they have separate cooling out two ports of the back of the laptop which is pretty swell :P

Now the problem is, the cpu can hit 60c when idle and the GPU 54 which i guess is fine for that., nothing is active in the taskbar except temperature monitoring. nothing running in the background.

under load (gaming) the cpu hits up to 80c and the gpu a bit less . to me i think that is a bit high, even for a nvidia gpu. I have a laptop with a faster amd athlon x2 and a 6470m but they remain cooler BUT share a heatsink and fan

i have cleaned out dust and re applied TIM but nothing has changed also both fans spin up, except the gpu fan doesnt spin fast.

your thoughts?

Those fans may not be spinning up to full rpm, they are how old? You can buy cheap lap top stands that have small usb powered fans, they do a good job of dropping temps. I use one for me old Dell Inspirion, makes a nice difference. I finally replaced the fan in the Dell and temps improved.

The fans as far as i know are fine, the nvidia fan i can feel push air out but not at high rpm, each fan has 4 wires on the connector so must be controllable? the cpu fan adjusts speed and can get quite high, but not enough to cool the cpu obviously. I dont have a desk so a cooling stand would be a pain to move around the house

Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)
This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted. 1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues. 2. I reformatted and...

I turned it off and let it sit for a while and turned it...

High idle CPU temps after last updates
Hi, It happened twice. My CPU idle temps increased A LOT after windows updates (Ultimate 64). And not just after rebooting, but all day long. Just in idle. When I start any work on the laptop, it drops to normal levels. Scary, cause I make pauses often and let it shutdown the screen and sleep....

High idle temps
The fan in my laptop has been running fast and non-stop as of recently. Even when it's idle. I had it dust-cleaned about 2 weeks ago but, if anything, it's only gotten worse since then. The idle temps of the CPU, GPU and HDD are all around 50C (the GPU temp rises quickly into around 70C if I...
