    Default cpu temps

    Hi everyone, been searching the net for info regarding the critical temps of the processor and gfx card in my new laptop without much luck, and was wondering if anyone here could offer any insight.

    cpu is a phenom II n660, gpu is mobility radeon 6650. Temps under load according to hwmonitor are: 75c (cpu) and 72c (gpu). This was after a couple hours of gaming, and running the crysis benchmark. Should i worry about cooling?

    What is your ambient room temperature? And notebook manufacturer did you buy it from? If it's HP, then I'm not surprised at all by those temperatures, they always did have a poor cooling system design.

    Those temps aren't bad at all. Actually they're quite good.

    I consider anything under 90C fine.

    That's absolutely fine. I'm surprised by the fact that your GPU is cooler than your CPU, it's usually the other way around. Your GPU temps are even cooler than my repasted G73.

    You only really need to worry when the CPU goes above 85C and the GPU above 90C.

    Thanks for the replies. Just a little paranoid i guess, much less worried about it now

    Manufacturer is acer, room temp is around 70*f (21*c)

    If your ambient is 21, it is running on the hotter side, but nothing too worrisome. Acer typically has better cooling designs than HP...

    what a wrong statement that would be, LOL. When was the last time you touched a laptop GPU working at 90 deg C ?

    what are you all talking about, anything in your laptop that heats up slightly above room temperature is NOT fine. It just shows how much improvement is needed in the laptop area

    but to the OP: those CPU and GPU temps are acceptable. If you can, bring them down though ... as I did with my laptop - when maxed out on both CPU/GPU I get ~65 deg C top, and that's with over 50% overclock on the GPU. I would like them to top out at 30 deg C though ... ehhhhh some day

    Do you own a laptop, or any type of computer? I see a laptop in your sig, but I'm doubting. The GPU and CPU in every computer in the world go way over room temp. The outside of a laptop may stay cool, but the internal components always get hot.

    also, I bet I've been around computers longer than yourself (no disrespect), I still remember my 8088 and what I did with it. Speaking about CPU/GPU temps of every computer in the wold is plain stupid.

    I just said what a laptop temps should be, compared to what they are these days. Heat + electronics = not good

    I was aiming mostly towards the comment about 90 deg C GPU temps as being fine .. where the max allowed is typically around 100
