    I just recently bought a Sager NP9876. I have been testing out the laptop and it seems that the CPU temps are rather high. Right now I am running folding@home through the chrome browser and the CPU temps are hovering around 98-99 degrees C. I have another laptop Asus GT80 running folding@home and the CPU temps are 80 degrees. I purchased the diamond thermal compound for the new laptop (specs are below). Do these temperatures seem normal to you? How do you know if they really put the thermal compound on? I appreciate any help you guys can offer. I spent a lot of money on this so I just want to make sure things should be working properly. Thanks

    You dont say what cpu you have.
    But if it is a 7700k without any undervolt I would say it is normal.

    Remember this a desktop processor wrapped in a laptop.
    To decrease temperature you can try undervolting and to improve cooling further you can delid the processor.

    I think its a delidded 7700K CPU OC'ed to 4.2GHz.

    It might be a little high then, but I don't know.
    Someone who has this configuration has to answer.

    Are you using max or auto fans?

    4.2Ghz is the stock frequency for a 7700K on all 4 cores. Loading it up constantly like that will produce some higher temperatures.

    Our partners typically do not offer de-lids, if you want to slam it, then I would try the undervolt to help make it as efficient as possible.

    Doh! Forgot to give the CPU - I7 7700K. I havent touched the fans so I assume they are on auto. Anyway, even with the Diamond Thermal compound do those temperatures at full speed seem reasonable? I guess should I be concerned about the temps? How much cooler could I get it by undervolting? Have never done it so not sure how difficult it would be. Appreciate all the responses.

    It's just lowering a value, testing all is stable and then trying a slightly lower value. Once it's unstable you add a couple of steps back on to give margin and run it like that.
