Windows 7: Cpu temp emergency!!!

Ok, so basically the absolute maximum temperature of 105C is in the actual CPU cores then?

Intel doesn't say WHAT temperature reading is for that maximum... funny lol.

Sorry for the triple post, I get what you're saying now.

TJunction = Core Temp. (Core 0 and Core 1). And at TJunction Max, the system will shut down.

Maximum TJunction for this CPU is 90C (194F) - the 105C must be the "overall" temp.

So I don't have to worry about anything getting fried unless the temps creep up to about 80F, then it's time to shut down and let it cool off before the manual cut-off TJunction process.

Pretty close to being correct on that? If so, I'll make it a habit to save and exit the game every half hour to an hour to check and let it cool off a bit before resume anyway.

Again, thank you both so very much. I really appreciate it!

Spot on.

Quick question though, those 45-46C temps your seeing, are they your idle temps? They seem a bit warm for Idle

I think they are. I'm downloading and installing some updates to Windows right now and the temperatures are reading about 54C and 59C (Core Temp), 50C and 51C (SpeedFan).

I do live out in the desert/valley region though, so I'm sure the environmental temperatures have a lot to do with the computer's overall internal temperatures. It's probably about 88F here right now (31C)... wouldn't be surprised at all if this is why it's so hot inside of this thing right now.

Ahh that would explain it.

I wouldnt worry too much then. If your Cores actually reach the Tjunction then I'd consider some better cooling. Might be worth looking into anyway, cooler chips are faster chips

Yeah definitely, but there's not much to be done about that for Notebooks. Going to probably have to stop using it pretty quick here, for it's own protection, as we can occasionally get up to 110F (43C) out here around now!

But yeah, again, really mean it - thank you!

EDIT: I'd give you some rep, but it's telling me to spread it around first so lol.

You can always try one of those Laptop cooling pads

I almost bought one of those... but most of them suck the air away from the Notebook's intake vents rather than into them. Doesn't sound right to me. I have actually put the styrofoam blocks that shipped with the Notebook underneath it and it already runs dramatically cooler than if I put it on a flat surface by itself (which I did before I did the other thing and it did indeed run considerably hotter). I'd wager this is the main reason why Notebook cooler pads work so great anyhow lol.

But yeah, this hopefully won't be a problem anymore soon as I plan on building a proper gaming rig in early 2011, after my $1,200 earnings of doing seasonal work. Notebooks just can't take the heat of games sadly.

And... the game's crashed out to desktop twice now because of, I'd imagine, overheating. CPU temps never get above 67C though so perhaps its something else heating up causing that to happen? Running out of ideas for the immediate term...

How about graphics overheat? I know that Notebooks dont really have a graphics card as such, but the integrated components can still get hot.

That's what I was thinking... or else something to do directly with the motherboard. I notice it gets blazing hot towards the front-right on the bottom. No idea what's sitting there, but whatever it is it is very, very, very hot.

I tried looking up what this thing looks like inside, but couldn't find anything so I'll likely never know. =/
