CPU Temperature

How are you guys dealing with high temperatures? I have a Intel Core 2 Duo T5450, running at 1,66 GHz. It's on my laptop and sometimes, when I have a lot of stuff open, it goes up to 73-75 degrees Celsius. I've changed the thermal paste in december. Is that way too high or it's normal?

Re: CPU Temperature

That's quite high.

I have an Intel Core i5 2.5GHz in my laptop, and that with lots of apps stays well below that.

Re: CPU Temperature

Thanks for the answer! It's variable though, it's not like that all the time. Right now, I have Skype, Chrome with three tabs and it has 56 degrees.

Re: CPU Temperature

Hmm, that's still quite high for just those things.

My main computer, with lots of things open, rarely goes above 40C.

Re: CPU Temperature

CPUs don't start to fry until they are over about 90c usually, but anything above about 60c will shorten the life of them. Switch out the thermal paste for Arctic MX-4 or something high quality like that and make sure to apply it properly; don't use too much and make sure the CPU and heatsink contact surfaces are absolutely pristine before applying (use acetone or IPA to clean off the old paste)

Re: CPU Temperature

I've never experienced high CPU temperatures, and I'm using the same heatsync that came with the processor and I'm overclocked from 3GHz to 4GHz. I have got a good case though which I thinks helps with cooling.

Hmm, not a good idea with stock coolers.

Re: CPU Temperature

@Echo doesn't matter as long as the temps don't go too high.

Re: CPU Temperature

I had heat issues on my laptop which is a dual core celeron clocked at 1.8GHz. For such a low clock speed I didn't know why it got so hot, especially with a cooling pad. After getting to a stage that within 10 minutes the laptop was heating up and knowing it would eventually harm my CPU, I opened the laptop and found it was clogged with fluff and dust. After cleaning it out it's been fine ever since.
