Windows 7: high CPU temperatures;upto 100 degrees celsius

My guess would be WHS is right. But one thing you could do is try Core Temp. If your AMD processor is anything like my Phenom I then the temp reading cannot be taken at face value. Supposedly what matters is not the degrees c but the difference between that reading and T-JMax. They seem to want to make it rocket science.

edit: I'm not an overclocker. So I'd bet on WHS.

then i should test it with a 5400rpm one...will get back to the post after trying that

i just want to confirm onto the readings shown by these 3rd party applications.
and this confirmation can be done by cross checking it with the BIOS temperature readings.
unfortunately, insyde BIOS F.26 doesnt show temperature readings :S
ohhh god i feel so cursed :'(

from my opinion! i do not want to rely onto these 3rd part applications like coretemp speedfan speccy etc.
because there are ought to be some discrepancies when there is AMD :|
so im going to contact HP tmrw! going to ask them a method on how to monitor CPU temperature! if they give me a valid method!il move forward in this direction!
otherwise on monday! im going to get the 7200 rpm HDD replaced with the OLD one(means the HDD with the same specs as earlier), and then will see if it does any good!

if anybody wants to give some any other sugesstion! please do it ASAP!

LMiller7 thanks for such a positive reply, indicating these results to be invalid.
but are you so sure? that multiple softwares will provide invalid results ?
ive tried 4-5 softwares all of them are showing elevated temperatures for the cores.
I never meant to imply that your temperatures are normal, only that the current readings are not valid. You probably do have a heat problem. Hard drives don't normally produce a great deal of heat, but with the confined space and limited ventilation of a laptop it doesn't take much to cause a problem.

lmiller, even i dont say the temperatures are normal.
they are nowhere near to normal! but i was feeling content after you pointed out that, these values can be invalid.
regarding the ventilation, i need not comment and you need not doubt on it! got the best ventilation and with these readings the laptop fan is blowing out cool wind! i am confused.. that if the processor would be at such high temps then the fan would have been blowing hot winds and that too at very high speed, but the fan seems to be idling plus the base of the laptop is cool! i pretty think that these values can be invalid! that is why i want the BIOS temperature reading! because that would be the true legitimate ones! but i have insyde f.26 bios that doesnt show/hidden the menus for temperature reading!
i've contacted HP for suggesting a method to monitor the temperatures. Again repeating, i dont want to rely on these 3rd party appliactions!
thanks for replying!

I've never seen a disk heat the CPU. If a drive is getting hot enough to affect the cabinet temperatures, it's probably hot enough to shutdown. Do those temps show that high right after startup? What does the BIOS have for temps? Having too much paste between the CPU and heat sink is worse than having none.

They may have made changes at AMD but I think the whole point of using the difference you get when subtracting the reading of a program like Core Temp or another, from T-JMax, is because AMD doesn't want to just put out a straight forward number. Probably so you won't overclock it with confidence. It's kind of strange. Like having a speedometer on a car that doesn't show the real speed in MPH or KPH but gives a coefficient you have to plug into a formula using the secret number in the car's computer. It's kind of silly seemingly.

CARWIZ, im thinking just the same! and yes its right after startup and if such high temps were there, machine should have switched off on its own. and ive got the worst BIOS INSYDE! that doesnt show the CPU temperatures! and im not confident enough to MOD it, lappy may get bricked! :S suggest some other method to monitor the temps, which can show valid values!

MILES AHEAD..im sorry to disappoint you, but im not relying onto the third party tools!

If you are running more than one monitor, they can get confused and even crash the CPU. The better monitors will convert AMD's DT to relative temperature. The fact that the board temps, which are straight sensors, reflect more sensible numbers leads me to believe the monitor is faulty.

HP Pavilion dm1 Notebook PC getting up to 85 degrees celsius
Hey all, I have had my laptop for maybe three years now. The temperatures never really bothered me up until a few months ago. They tend to get up to 62 degrees celsius (both cores) while watching YouTube and internet browsing, but up to 85 degrees celsius while gaming. I have heard of using a cool...

CPU running at extremely high temperatures
Over the past few days I noticed my laptop was cranking out a decent amount of heat. I checked the cpu temp in Speccy and when only running Firefox the cpu was between 90C-97C. I'm sure the cpu should not be running this hot when simply surfing the internet. Even when idle the temp hovers around...

Hi, I have a PC which I use only for MS Flight Simulator (specs below): I have just added a CPU temp gauge (via CoreTemp) to the desktop and am a bit alarmed at the information it is giving. The PC came with the i7-950 pre-overclocked to 3.8 GHz (and I wouldn't dream of losing this overclocking...
