I know that the mbp can get hot when doing some heavy computing, however I was playing a simple online game the other night called plants VS zombies, check it out if you don't know it. Anyways after playing for only a few minutes I noticed that my macbook was getting very warm, and after about 15 minutes of playing it the underside of it was hot to the touch and the topside(keyboard) part of it was quite warm and I could feel the heat radiating off of it. I haven't even had it for a week yet but have done quite a few things including watching movies both on a HD and from a DVD. I have had multiple browser sessions open with wireless on music playing in I itunes etc. And I have played around with some other settings etc. Nothing else I have done on the computer has made any part of it warm to the touch, but this simple online game made it to hot to sit on my lap, and very hot to the touch and has me worried something might be wrong with it, I would hate to play a more demanding game, or do some video editing etc..which is one of the reasons I bought this computer over a PC in the first place. I still have 10 days or so to return it for a full refund or else exchange it for another I have tried restarting the system a few times and playing the game again and the temps shot right up again.
First off, I don't actually own a Mac, nor have I owned one since like '92, so I don't know much about them at all. Two of my friends have the new 15' pros though. Today, we installed XP on both of them, and I decided to download SpeedFan and check the temps on one of the laptops. I can't remember exactly what they were, but I believe I saw GPU at 70, and the cores at like 69 and 65. This was after idling for about 5 hours, and these are higher than what I'd have on my gateway if I were gaming for twice that long.
The one who's temps I checked wasn't on a cooling pad, and it had spent some time on the carpet. Of course, I don't really know if that matters. From what I can tell, it's exhaust vent is right under the screen on the back, and it's intake is god knows where. To be honest, I'm surprised it hasn't exploded yet. And this is with all the windows drivers from the disc that had "everything else" on it, so I'm assuming it's regulating its fans and power correctly. So is this normal, or should I be worried? It really doesn't seem normal to me.
I've been playing WoW since I bought my mac 2 weeks now (not straight) and so trying to decide if I should sell my PC or not. But I'm concerned on the temps on the macbook, while playing it hits 80-83C fans are on cools a little but mostly stays in that temp range.
My question is are these temps normal while playing or are they high and I should have it looked at?
I've had my M1530 for almost 11 months now and I noticed this discoloration on the palm rest but more importantly are the temps. The CPU is hitting 97 degrees Celsius and the GPU is hitting at 94 degrees Celsius. I first noticed this after several hours of video conversions then I ran ORTHOS to replicate the results. Should I ask for a technician to replace the mainboard or heatsinK? I've tried to raise the issue with the GPU running at this temp before but to no avail. However, this is the first time the CPU has hit such high temps.
I've got a Precision M4400 for which I did some DIY upgrading... Specifically, I put in a T9900 (3.06GHz, 35W TDP) processor and a 256Gb SSD. You can see the specs in my signature, actually.
The problem is that my temperatures seem to be going pretty high. Realtemp is saying that once I turn on the laptop, both CPU cores are at around 30-35 C. But after a very short while, this heats up to the mid-40's. And if I play Sims 3, let's say, the temperature can go up all the way to the high 70's. The GPU seems to stay at under 80 C, which I think should be fine .....
just installed fx2500 into my 9400.. everything working great..
What should I expext the temps to be running at ... Seems hot... I could keep my 7900gs under 60c by keeping my 18kgui program runnin fans on high while playing Cod4 or CS:s... now the gpu peaks out at 70-72c...
i was wondering what the temps you guys are getting on your 8700 sli setups running games like crysis and such. i'm running crysis for example at 1280x800 or something, cant remember off hand, everything set to medium. game for about and hour and a half and my temps only showed to reach around 62C. now this is using i8kfangui and offsetting the gpu temp by 8. i'm not using the program to handle the cooling, just monitor the temps. i guess i was just expecting the temps to be higher, not that its bad, i guess maybe the cooling and bios on this laptop just work better than on a 1705. seems that i hit 70C almost daily on that thing depending on the game i was running.
Should i contact dell ? I bought this laptop on july 2008 without any extra warranties and i think that i have 1 year only of warranty that comes for free right?. The downside is that im in south america so it might take a while...
I put my 7950 gtx at 620//675 and I was testing with atitool .26 which I just downloaded and didn't change any settings. No artifacts for about 45 minutes, but atitool reports my temps in the system tray, and it got as high as 88 degrees. That seems pretty high, is that bad?
I always knew my comp ran hot, but not until I got HWMonitor today did I know how hot. I did a load test and CPU/GPU and ACPI temps went to 90. CPU and ACPI temps would drop to 65 ish after this, but the GPU stays kind of high in the 78-85 range. (Anyone know why this is happening?)
Also, when playing games, my temps are almost all at 87-90 all the time. I thought it might be my bios (A12), so I switched back to A09. This did not change anything.
Basically my question is, should I be calling dell support to take a look, and what do I tell them? I've never had computer warranty before. Or is there something else I can do to fix this? It's very hot to type on and sit on my lap.
A last question, these temps are being measured currently with the laptop on my desk, with the lid closed and an external monitor/keyboard/mouse plugged in. Is this causing increased temps? Should I be leaving the lid open?
I'm not really sure if I should be putting this here or make a specific thread in the gaming section to ask specifically about the GPU there.
Anyway, I am looking to find out what the average CPU and GPU temps of the 6930G people are seeing while gaming.
I noticed while playing certain games that my 6930G gets rather hot and while I know notebooks generally run hotter then a desktop I am not really sure if the temps I see are normal or not. I have not seen any real decrease in performance while gaming, nor have I had and other problems with the notebook. I am currently not running a notebook cooler but I will be purchasing one very shortly. The fans and vents are regularly cleaned out.
Here are some temps I am seeing using HW Monitor with my 6930G at idle and during gaming while room temp is 22*C, Idle -CPU=46*C -GPU=55*C Gaming -CPU=85*C -GPU=90*C sometimes hitting a max of 96*C for a second or two
Changing graphics setting in the game have no effect on temps I am seeing.
Oh and the video card in my 6930G is a 9600m GT 512mb GDDR3.
So are the temps I am seeing normal? What temps do you see while gaming with your 6930G?
ive been reading a lot on under-volting on here and temps and i finally decided to dive into it. my only problem seems to be is whether or not im getting accurate temp readings from my programs, it seems every one i use has a different opinion, ive tried real temp, hw monitor, the temps in rmclock and even some other ones i no longer have that i found around the web. the thing that scares me tho is realtemps readings(which i get the feeling are wrong but not when my hands are on my acer)
realtemp comes of with 49c-54c idle and 89c-94c at max load on orthos but what throws me off is my rmclock and even hwmonitor come up with 34 idle 56-60 max load, which i prey those will be right lol
what bothers me tho most of all is this is after under-volting.
has anyone had innacuracy with one more then the other? i need to get the temp down cause i cant even play games anymore due to the computer randomly shutting off after 20-30 mins of gameplay(wow,aion,crysis)
im almost tempted to going as far as strapping my fan to the bottom of my desk and assentialy turning my desk into an airhockey/cooling pad for my acer.
HP's envy 15 line with the ATI 5830 GPU (i7-720/820). I do have one big concern however, and that is heat. Could anyone post their max GPU / CPU / HD temps they usually get while running an intensive game / benchmark?
I have a dv5 that recently decided it didn't want to go to sleep when I closed the lid. I checked the settings to make sure they hadn't accidentally been changed, but it's still set to sleep. I have not made any other changes or installed any additional software. how I can get it back to sleep?
I'm using HWMonitor to monitor temps, and it does not show my hd temp. However, I am concerned about the temps it does show (THRM? and processor).
My dv5 used to run at an average of 80C, and saw temps as high as 95C while streaming video. I sent it in for repairs and the temps have since dropped, but still seem high (Currently 50C, high of 86C while streaming video). Should I send it back for repair- again?
While playing GTA4 for a while on my DV5 I notice my temps are kind of high. The CPU hits 75 and 73 for each core and my GPU hits 70. Are these temps low enough to consistently play the game or do I need to find better cooling solutions?
It seems my idle GPU temps are pretty high. I just embarked on a mission to clean my fan out. I believe I was successful, but the whole thing was a little out of my comfort zone.
I'm now experiencing slightly cooler GPU temps i think (around 42-46 C at idle) but the GPU temp at idle is at a very steady 68 - 69 C, and the fan just keeps running all the time. Maybe I should have paid more attention to what the temps were beforehand, but it's too late for that.
Was wondering if this was something to be concerned about. Do I possibly have a bad contact between the thermal system and the GPU, and should I try and connect it more securely?
In short: My e1705 with a quadro 2500m is idling at temperatures at least 10 degrees celsius higher than it was before: 70 degrees with slow fans compared to ~60 with slow fans (I had fans kick in at 65 to bring it back to 60). There have been no hardware/software changes to the system.
So I read the guides about applying AS5 to your GPU and I thought I'd try to get better temps.
I cleaned off all the old compound from both the GPU and the heat spreader, and placed about a pea-sized piece on the GPU (see attachment). It wasn't the most perfect blob of AS5, but volume-wise I think it was pretty close, and ideally it would be smoothed out when I tightened the screws on the heat spreader.
I stuck to a "less is more approach" having heard that all I needed to do was fill the minor imperfections of the contact surfaces.
The bottom of the computer is hot to the touch and the fans are blowing out hot air. I cleaned all fans and heat sink vents. also re applied all thermal paste on the cpu and gpu. Im concerned because my motherboard and gpu were just replaced yesterday for heat issues i believe. havent figured out if the heat was the cause or not. the temps were the same as there now with the new motherboard and gpu .....
I have a T5750 Processor and after playing L4D HWMonitor reports my max CPU temp as 81C. My idle temperatures are around 41-45 but my max temps are worrying me. My GPU temp also goes up to ~83 when gaming as well.
