Hey guys, a rather silly question, most likely with a very obvious answer, but I'd like to know anyways... I've observed my fathers Acer-Laptop has a C2D T7500 like i have, but his never goes above 30°C on Idle, it hovers between 25°C and 28°C. Now my Chip on the other Hand hovers between 50°C and 46°C... I thought it was the cooling system, but they are farily similiar and the test I conducted prooves it... I've put my Laptop into sleep mode and let it cool down for 2 hours... Once I turned it on, it was obviously ready to go right away (no boot up heat or anything), and I immidiatly checked the temps. AMDGPUClocktool reported 17°C for my GPU (which would be around Room-temperature and makes sense) while Rightmark and Speedfan reported as much as 38°C for my CPU, and it wasn't even running for 10 seconds! Is this some kind of "security measure" to keep people aware that the CPU may fry? The reason I ask is because my Laptop turns on his fan (more or less always) as soon as the CPU hits 50°C to cool it down to 46°C. Obviously it cools down to 46°C in around 10 seconds but only takes max. 1 min to reach the 50°C again (which would actually be 30°C, approx. the same as my GPU idles at)... Is this hardcoded into to bios/CPU or is there a software-way around this, to "fool" the system into thinking the cpu only has 30°C (which it actually has). I mean, the fan is really quite and doesn't actually annoy me all that much... but since this laptop runs pretty much 24/7 and the fan always jumps on, I fear it will catch quite a lot of dust in no-time... I tried unplugging the fan too, and the cpu never reached above 55°C/64°C on Idle/100% Cpu Usage in powersaving mode(keep in mind that this is with assumend +20°C of meassuring); the GPU reached around 38°C in that occasion... But since I use this Laptop as a powerhorse aswell, I can't just keep it unplugged like this. Any Fan-control program I tried did not work, anyhow I'm already happy if someone answers my initial question: why is it showing so much more °C?! Maybe ACPI is the key?
