    Hi-

    Could you please post some screenshots?
    You measured that temp (48C) using which program? Please try and use RealTemp (google it) or CoreTemp (again google) and report back.

    The laptop is hardly a week old. The BIOS is A10 version. How do I check if the heatsink is seated properly? Wait for the engineer to come to my place and do a diagnostic? Fans are fully operational... thats for sure.

    I measured the temps using rmclock, coretemp and HWMonitor

    48c? thats a little hard to believe for a stressed out T9300 (2.5 ghz)

    It's undervolted using RMClock.

    if you go into Power Options and customise whatever plan you're on you can set both minimum and maximum processor speed to 100%.

    just don't have it on your lap when you do...

    Please post a screenshot of RMclock and Orthos (small fft) running... that will help a LOT of people out.

    Exactly my thoughts. My idle temps are equal to his load temps.

    A possibility... hopefully you can teach usall how to go about it.

    I am not having a problem with the CPU coming down due to power management, but rather because it overheats and is throttled down by the CPU damage prevention department. If you see my screenshots, the CPU is reaching almost 100C loaded in 7 or so minutes of Orthos Small FFT (equivalent to some CPU intensive processing.)

    You may have to wait a while as I have an exam this afternoon. 48C is with the default blend and AS5 thermal paste and undervolted. I also have the 9 cell battery raising the laptop off the desk.

    My CPU idles at 32C in a 23C environment.

    I'll do a small FFT test for you after the exam.

    Whoa thats a nice idle temp. I guess I can simulate the 9cell condition by angling the laptop a wee bit.

    Looking forward to your Orthos Small,RMclock,CoreTemp/RealTemp screenshot.

    Mine idles at 32c aswell but it maxes out at 63c as seen here (Just after 1hr of BF2 OC'd)

    Ill be applying AS5 this week and hopefully achieve 29c or less (Freshly cleaned fans, UV'ed, Cooler, + AS5)

    Maxing out at 48c just doesnt sound right for a 2.4ghz cpu
