Dell :: XPS M1710 GPU & CPU Temps At Idle?

My dell xps m1710 temps at idle are

CPu 54C To 58C
GPU 54C To 58C

Is that okay?

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 .....

Dell :: XPS M1330 Normal And Max Temps? (CPU / GPU)
I've been fighting this M1330 for a while, and had the motherboard replaced once already to "fix" the GPU issue.

But I'm still worried about temps.

Sitting flat on a coffee table (not blocking the vents or anything) and playing Fear 2 demo

the laptop just shut down (presumably due to high temperatures) after only 5-10 minutes.

Dell :: S 1555 With 4500MHD Graphics, Can Check Your Peak Temps For CPU, GPU
My studio 1555 with Radeon 4570 graphics starts the fan very often, when the GPU temp reaches 51C and stops when it hits 44C. It only takes 3-5 minutes to go from 44C to 51C and thats with me doing NOTHING on the computer. So I'm seriously thinking about going to a non-Radeon Studio 1555 as i like the laptop overall.

I just wanted to know for the 4500MHD owners, does your fan go off even if the laptop is just sitting there idle doing nothing at all? If you can download the program i8kfangui to monitor your CPU, GPU, and Chipset temps. I'd appreciate it if you could just turn the reply back with your Peak temps for the CPU, GPU, and chipset. (if you don't see them displayed go to Options -> Status Reading tab -> check the three boxes for the above items. Please click on Reset Peak Values then let your laptop sit idle for 10-20min.

Dell :: GPU Drivers For My XPS M1710?
I'm using the 175.32 drivers for the 7900GTX on my Dell XPS M1710, but was told by a friend that there are better ones out there. On the nvidia website it only gives me Quadra NVS drivers, which I'm told would give worse performance than my current drivers. I use my laptop for gaming, not rendering.
Any other driver suggestions?

Dell :: XPS M1710 CPU Upgrade Computer Illiterate
I have an XPS m1710 from the early days when the CPU was an Intel Core Duo T2500. My Dell died and the folks in India told me the mobo was bad.

So I replaced it and I still have the same problem. The problem was when I tried to turn the machine on I got a power light and HDD light for 1-2 seconds then he system shut down. Reading posts it seems my CPU is bad (when I replaced mobo I cleaned out significant dust bunnies from the fans.

So, my real question - - can I install an Intel Core 2 Duo T7#00 CPU in m system or do I need to find another T2500? I purchased a new desk model and I just dont want to toss a good laptop if there is a simple fix.

Dell :: XPS M1530 CPU Idling At 67-70, GPU At 77-80, Shuts Down While Gaming
I've recently starting playing Civilization 4: Beyond the Sword again, and my computer (stats listed in my signature) has started to shut down, I'm presuming from overheating.

I downloaded CPUID hardware monitor and those are my web-surfing/idling temps. This bad boy can get very hot. I only just realized a few moments ago that my fan does not often speed up to max.

Unfortunately, I don't have the extended Dell warranty, and since I bought this in 2007,

Will I have to take it apply and reapply thermal paste?

What utility can I use to test the fan to ensure that it's working properly?

Dell :: M6400 Temps, GPU Too High?
I am noticing my second m6400 (Qx9300, Nvidia 3700, Vista64 Ultimate, A03 bios) is behaving differently than the first. The fan is pulsing on and off at idle (left hand fan) and it's driving me nuts.

I checked with speedfan and HWmonitor and notice that it idles 59-61 degrees celsius. I think this appears to be a lot hotter than other's temps I see here. (I saw someone mentioning they idle @ 39C)

Dell :: High GPU Temps On M1530
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?

Dell :: AS5 On 2500m GPU --> Higher Temps?!
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.

Dell :: Are My GPU Temps Normalusing M1730 (8700M GT SLI)
Core 1 is 69-73C at idle
Core 2 is 71-74C at idle.

I haven't stressed them, but the temps haven't changed much at all while playing Batman: Arkham Asylum at 1920x1200. They both got up to 77C. I don't really play videogames and got this game just because this computer is apparently a gaming machine and it is actually quite fun!

I'm worried about temperatures because I've read about the incredible failure rates of the GPUs in this model and if its already getting wacky, I'll be contacting Dell (as this is a replacement for an older computer).

Dell :: Studio 1555 High Cpu Temps?
Running a t6600 2.2ghz c2d.

Wondering if these temps are acceptable in a laptop or not?
Temps idling 3-10% cpu = 57-67C
Fan feels the need to go into hairdryer mode every 5 minutes or so to bring the temp down a few C.

under load core 1 + 2 = 100%
core 1 = 88-90C
core2 = 90-92C

Also i will add this is currently in a very cold room.

would you say these are acceptable temps or not?

also not overly impressed with the build quality. keyboard bezel popping out in certain sections after 4 months.

Dell :: M1530 Extremely High Cpu Temps 95+
My cpu core hits the mid 90's when gaming. i undervolted it to 1100v @ 11x and the temps only hit the high 80's/low 90's during gaming but hit the mid nineties in orthos and was still going up.

This is getting me down a bit cus the cpu ramps down during gaming and screws up the fps, and also im outside of the uk so cant get my laptop to dell (there are no dell suppliers where i am)

does anyone have any idea what might be wrong. am i reading the temps correctly? speedfan shows much lower temps (in the 70s) however cpuz, rightmark and hwmonitor all show temps consistent with eachother.

Its a t7500.

there's nothing blocking the outake at the back; i lifted the laptop up during orthos to let air out of the bottom but it didnt make any difference.

I've built a few desktops but i havent really tinkered with this laptop apart from adding more ram.

Acer :: Extensa 4420- CPU Temps
I have the extensa 4420, today I was in class and I was just typing notes and I noticed that my cooling fan was quite noticable so I turned the fan always on function to "off" and the fan turned off and it was nice and quiet. i watched the temps hover around 38 but when the temps hit 41 (according to NHC) the fan kicked in at a good low speed. the NHC was setting the CPU to stay at 800mhz per core so I was wondering if that is a good temp? I have experience in using thermal paste, would that help lower the temps enough to stay under 41 degrees?

Dell :: Xps 1340 Temp Goes Up When Idle
I have a Dell XPS 1340, P8700, 9500M GS.

I noticed that when idle the temperature slowly goes up to 65C, then the fan kicks in, lowers it to 45 and stops. The temperature goes up again and in about 2 minutes it is already 65 again.
The process repeats indefinitely.

Dell :: M1710 Gpu Troubles...
Now it could just be dust, but seeing as that I cleaned it all out about 4 months ago, it's possible it's not all that.

Thing is, I AS5ed it about a yearish ago, and it ran GREAT!! now it seems like the fan doesn't blow as hard on full, and I'm unfortunately out of warranty, and unsure about buying a new warranty from dell.

I don't know wether or not I need to redo the AS5 job, my main questions are...
there a gap sufficient enough on the 7950 go gtx dual heatpipe heatsink design that the gpu isn't quite mating right with the copper?

If my fan is going on me, is there away to put a more powerful fan in? or will only a dell fan be recognized?

Has anyone else had this problem of temperatures increasing over time other than having dustbunnies? aka has anyone had to redo their as5 and it becoming magically better .....

Sony :: Vaio Z Speed Mode High Temps And CPU Usage
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-Z590 with windows 7 32 bit professional installed. When I switch to speed mode and hook up a monitor (24" dell LCD) via HDMI->DVI the graphics card temperature goes up to around 80-95C (measured with real temp 3.40) and the CPU temp also goes up into the 60-70s. No programs are using the CPU heavily. During this process the fans go up to max and the computer gets really loud. I have all the latest drivers installed and the latest BIOS.

I was wondering if anyone else has a problem like this? Would installing 64 bit windows 7 be better? It makes it really noisy when I hook up a monitor via HDMI. Any ideas?

Everything is perfect in stamina mode, low temps, low cpu usage.

Dell :: XPS 1640 Load System Fan Even When Idle
I just got the xps 1640 today and I'm very distracted by the loud system fan. It's audible all the time even when the computer is idle. I haven't been doing anything intensive on my computer either. The fan starts as soon as windows loads and never stops. I know this laptop has heat issues but I checked the core temp and it is only between 38-45degrees C. I know the fan can get louder under load, this is what I would describe as idle but still, it seems way too loud. It was raining earlier and I could hear the fan over the sound of raindrops hitting my roof. It's getting unbearable!!

Has anyone had the same experience? Or more importantly does anyone have a way to reduce the speed of the fan slighty? Speedfan doesn't seem to support my motherboard so I can't do it there.

Acer :: CPU And GPU Temperature
Setup 6930G, T6400, 9600M GT, 4GB Ram. Temperatures for general internet use, although this does depend on the amount of graphics and flash content of the web page (Vista SP2 - Balanced Power)

HWMonitor 1.15
CPU 54 to 58 - (T6400)
GPU 59 to 65 - (9600M GT)

Nvidia System Tools 6.05 (November Release)
CPU 58 to 62 - (T6400)
GPU 59 to 65 - (9600M GT)

Does the T6400 appear to be high? My friends P7350 reads around 30. Also Note the difference between System Tools and HWMonitor for CPU. For Windows 7 my GPU runs with a lower end on the range (Windows 7 - 9600M GT GPU = 54 to 65).

Note Also - Running the 9600M GT GPU flat out (100% usage) using Nvidia CUDA to encode HD video the 9600M GT GPU hits a maximum of 67 (according to GPU-Z 0.38, HWMonitor and Nvidia System Tools).

What do people think and what temps are you getting?

Dell :: Throttling CPU And GPU Problems On 1558
I've been having some throttling issues with my 1558 for a past few days. I've been using it in the us but i'm on vacation now n i'm working on a 220V supply! Does that affect the performance of the adapter in any way?

My config is a core i5 520m,4GB ddr3, ati 4570 512mb,1080p screen.

I was playing Burnout Paradise n my system slowed down after 10 min of gameplay! I noticed that the CPU multiplier was frozen at 9. I really dunno y that happened! I've been playing the same game for hours together back home and it din seem to affect it in any way!

I tried updating it the latest BIOS that came out (A05) and that din help either. It also happened with a few other games as well.

I tried using throttlestop to just confirm that it was the CPU. The games was playing fine for 15 min wen the system just shut off!!

So I just tried to play for one last time with throttlestop off and it was actually fine till I got a critical error msg n my screen wasn't showing color properly!!

Have I fried my graphic card somehow?? Or is my adapter just not strong enuf to handle the load n hence throttling the system??

I tried updating my drivers to v10.4 N it kept saying INF not found n I had to install it indirectly.

Any way to find out if I've screwed up the graphic card?? I'm scared to push it with a game and screw up the system!!

Acer :: CPU And GPU Upgrade On Aspire 6930G
how to change the CPU (the GPU is easy) in 6930G.

This is a vague guide and quite clumsy so I have no responsibility whatsoever if you damage your laptop or you lose your data or anything bad happens to your laptop or you etc.

I have to mention though that there is another guide written by lucino but unfortunately he hasnt finished it and there are no photos. His guide looks more appropriate and safer than mine which is a bit risky but much quicker. Here is the link. lucino's guide
I am not sure if there is an update or if he is planning to include photos and finish the guide.

You will need a cross-head screwdriver around 3.0mm (you dont say!!!) but also a flat one

Please use some kind of protection from ESD (electrostatic discharge) like an antistatic or grounding strap or gloves. This will prevent the static sensitive components from being ruined (memory, video card, motherboard etc).

Sometimes I dont use it but I know how to discharge myself (i.e. by touching a metallic surface) before touching the laptop........................

HP/Compaq :: Dm3(z) HD 3200 CPU/GPU Over/Underclocking
I recently picked up an open item + refurbished dm3-1039 from my local MicroCenter for $362 after tax It's the model that comes with the Athlon Neo L335 (dual core, 1.6) and the HD 3200 with something like 256 or 384 of sideport memory. It's a nice little machine, definitely performing beyond my expectations, but because I have 7 days to figure out if I want it or not, and upon return, anything broken wouldn't seem too strange (since it was already returned once), I decided to take her out for some fun before making my final verdict.

So, I've seen a bunch of various significant and insignificant results from underclocking this genre of AMD chip. The biggest gains were on the dm2's MV-40 chip, which is a single core. People were seeing gains in the neighborhood of 30 minutes if they ran it "speedstep'd" down to 800mhz and undervolted. I'm not that guy...I can't be happy unless I'm going fast, but I figured I'd give undervolting a shot to see if I couldn't hit an official 6 hours. Unfortunately, I couldn't undervolt for squat. Undervolted for .075 gain, and it wasn't really even noticeable to pay off for the potential stability issues.............
