I would say that most laptops don't have fan speed sensors.
As laptops has small heat sink and fans, I would also say that the temperatures are quite normal on a laptop with i7.
Witch Power plan are you running?
If you run High performance the CPU is always at max clock and, even if not used, CPU gets hot.
Change the Power plan to Balanced and edit settings:
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings go to Processor Power Management and set minimum to 10% and Maximum to 100%. The clock will change as needed.

Ah ha! That was definitely set to 100% when plugged in, I thank you good sir.

I have ran in to another issue however that I think may be causing me some issues as well.

If I check out the resource monitor, I have a blue line that says CPU total 100%, my CPU 0 is consistently between 95 & 100%.

My CPU usage is only 29% I think the blue just means maximum frequency but why is my CPU 0 at 100% usage?

I've ran Malware bytes, tried microsofts scanner, downloaded two different free anti-viruses seperatly and ran them and I've found nothing that would say I have an issue.

This is off a fresh boot too.

Something is wrong.
I have seen on your post 7 that you're having thermal throttling. Also your virtual and physical memory usage is very high.
You have to find what service / program is using core0 so intense.
Try to disconnect from the net/ internet.

What antivirus and firewall you're using?

When I disconnect from the internet nothing changes.

Edit : I get thermal throttling after computer runs for about 5-10 minutes. Maybe I should re-do the thermal paste, could have gotten a cotton sliver stuck in there or something, can't run perfect for life.

How do I figure out what service is using all my processor? I've never ran in to this before as an issue and google isn't really helping me out.

I tried avast free and avg free, I also used malwarebytes.

I'm not using any firewall and have windows firewall disabled.


Edit 2: I have found that the memory usage is windows update. I'm now down to 2.7gb usage / 8.

Still can't figure out why cpu 0 is always at 100%

Are you using more then one antivirus?
Not having any firewall is the worst thing you can do. Your computer may be in use for illegal purposes. Someone can be in control of your computer. Turn it on.
The best free firewall 2016 | TechRadar
I use an old Zone Alarm version (92_106) that I think is very good and it doesn't have anti malware.
Thermal paste may not be applied correctly, but isn't the reason it's getting hot. Thermal paste never needs to be replaced.
Launch Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and then Resource Monitor like on post 12. On Processes and Services, Click on CPU tab and then CPU utilization to put in CPU utilization sequence. Find out witch (Processes and Services) is using your CPU.

I am not using more than one anti-virus, I just tried two different ones.

I have turned on my firewall and installed zone-alarm, same usage.

I have attatched my CPU usage, nothing indicates why it's at 100%

The only true temperature readings are in the bios.

There's no bios readings on this laptop, that I have checked.

I know it's not windows anymore, I deleted windows and installed linux just because I don't care lol.

CPU load still sitting at 85-90C after a few minutes.

Just replaced the thermal paste again, checked the fans and they are good, cleaned them out again, double checked everything.

The CPU usage is around 10-15% now, consistently on all cores so it wasn't cpu-0 overheating it either.

I think it's just the laptop is 5 years old now, maybe the fans aren't operating 100%... They seem to be however, I watched them with the cover off speed up and slow down, they look perfectly operating.

Maybe it was always so warm... I don't believe so but who knows.

Edit : I lied, CPU 1 (No 0 in linux) is 76% + consistently but total CPU load is around 20%, why is this one thread consistently being overused...

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...

CPU Temperatures too high...
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...

I apologize but I didn't know where to place this, so I'll put it here for now. So I have recently installed Speccy, and I noticed that while idling my motherboard tends to sit around 55-60c (in the orange) and my HDD usually sits around 37c. However, as of today, my motherboard was 63c and...
