Are these computer Temperatures okay?

This is a laptop computer with a stock cooling system...

The max peak you seen on the chart was about 137 Degrees F. (Celsius 58.3)

How high is too high?



And another Question would be, what temp is telling me to get a can of 'Winds' To blow out the heat sink?

Thank you..

132 F is 55 C, which is warm, but not excessive. Is that a CPU temp? Idling or under load?

I have no idea what your last question refers to.

The can of winds is a can of pressurized air..

towards the heat sink to blow the fan and heat sink out of dust

Temp is a little high for Idle
Average for under Load

I would let the "Winds" blow once a month regardless of temps.

When I am doing stuff like watching videos on youtube.. Temps range from 130-140 Degrees Fahrenheit (Celsius 54-60) When I am playing a complex game or some sort. Or when I am using 100% of my computer potential for about 10 minutes... I got to 170 Fahrenheit! (Celsius 76) And I don't have my vents covered.. I Use my computer on a flat surface.. there is a decent clearance for the intake fan to gather air for cooling.. So I assume.. that this is telling me that I need to clean my fan? I'm trying not to make it sound obvious.. but I am trying to know that this is a sign for the fan to be cleaned good.

Having just had a CPU performance issue due to overheating caused by dust, I can tell you that dust can be a major problem for computers. After a little research, I found that dust not only slows down the fans, lays on top of components causing them to got hotter, but it can also eventually lead to rusting of components and kill a computer outright. I definitely recommend using a can of air at least once every couple months if not once a month. Once a month will keep your computer running faster and cooler, and it will keep it safe from dust killing components.

Compressed air once every 1-3 months is always good idea. Some need to every month, others can get by with every 3.
Really depends on the enviroment, where the PC is, and how quickly dust collect.
A PC on floor, next to carpet for example, will collect dust much quicker than one up on a desk, regardless what the enviroment is like.

I'd say once every 1 or 2 months would ceratainly be playing it safe.


Just dont go sicking your upright Hoover in there hoping it'll work better and save buying a can of air.

That may sound like a silly joke, but it isn't.
You'd be surprised what .....

You know, its actually kinda sad really

I've used a vacuum hose to clean the OUTSIDE of my computer case/tower, but people actually stick the vacuum on the motherboard? smh

Edit: And a vacuum will not fix your CPU heat issue (unless by meaning fix, it stops it working altogether, and therefore it never gets hot). I recommend using a can of air. Your temperatures are definitely on the high side.

if you use a vacuum be sure to unplug the fans
