    Default HP temperature limits

    I downloaded the program "HW monitor" to monitor the temperature of various components. What are the normal ranges for CPU, video, and HD?

    First,
    You need to list your CPU and Graphics chip.
    The answer will depends on it.

    Matrix,
    I'm pretty sure you know that there is a issue with the 8400-series chips.
    They overheat due to a design/manufacturing flaw.

    I like to keep a Hard drive below 50 degrees...45 is nice for a max.
    For the CPU above 75 is not comfortable, even tho Intel specs this T7300 for a max temp of 100 degrees celsius:

    http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_2...7T7300%29.html

    You GFX chip shouldn't go above 80 degrees celsius while in-game, even is nVidai states that it can go to 110 degrees C....

    Read on you GFX chip, the issue is well documented and there might be lawsuits on the go for 8400m owners.

    Which is exaggerated by the poor thermal material and mounting of HP heatsinks. If the laptops were manufactured properly we would be seeing much less issues.

    I agree. There is a huge gap between nVidia chip and a heatsink copper contact. After I inserted a piece of copper with Acrylic Silver 5 on both sides, the gap has decreased significantly. Before, there was a lousy piece of the thermal paste, which was barely touching, if at all, the heatsink. Both nVidia's and HP's screwed up big time.

    I'll post my temperatures for various parts shortly.

    Is that under load or idle?

    Idle. The temperatures were a few degrees higher while under load.

    That seems a little high for idle but if the temps are only a few degrees C higher under load then you don't really have a problem. Could you post your load temps?
