    Re: high core temps

    Someone else mentioned in another thread that you should take a look at the CPU cooler on it. If it is the stock cooler, it may be inadequate, especially if you're OCing.

    Also, how is the airflow in your case?

    Yep, that was me, post is here.

    Although that was my note regarding the brainfart because it's a laptop not a desktop.

    Re: high core temps

    My stock coolers for both my i7s get into the 80s under load. I run with Zalman coolers in both and get high 40's to mid 50's under load. I also ran with a thermaltake water cooler and gave it up for the Zalmans.

    Another possible problem is if the fan is not seated proper. I've seen problems where a clip was broken and problems where the thermal paste wasn't applied right. 80's is bad and will shorten the life of your CPU. If your running with the stock CPU fan and have never taken it off the paste should be ok. Check to make sure the fan is properly secured to the motherboard.

    I don't have this laptop cooler, but I have one that is not too dissimilar. The reduction in heat it noticeable. And, they're not too expensive...
