Hello, making this forum just for fun and I wanna ask about temperatures.

Another question : Is 92c considered fine for 6 years old laptop?

If you mean the CPU, then yes it's normal.

Try cleaning your laptop cooling, temps may drop some degrees.

If this is a Gaming laptop, then you better start thinking a cooling pad.
Or else the battery pack will degrade rapidly .

If never been cleaned/serviced then seems normal .I think its overdue for a good clean and thermal paste.Heatsinks are probably fully blocked with dust
or maybe a fan has failed or stuck

92c is fine but id much like my lappy to run in the low 80s to get that id repaste and undervolt using throttlestop but that depeneds on what lappy you have. 92c is underload i hope cus 92c on idle is bad :).

Hi,
No it's not normal unless the fan is not working anymore.

My 12 year old laptop runs at 35c-50c max so yeah blow the sucker out and maybe even change the thermal paste.
Some might be confusing 90 celsius with 90 fahrenheit which is a large difference :p

If we're talking about the CPU, 90c is normal under load. Depends on laptop, CPU model, etc. Idle should be lower, normally 50c or below.

Hi,
92 degrees celsius is nearly 200 degrees fahrenheit no where on the planet is this normal
TJ Max is 100c on most units where it will throttle or shut down to protect it's self from damage although throttling should start way before 100c.

No need to convert to Fahrenheit, I only know Celsius. Again, depending on the CPU odel, laptop cooling & load, 92c is not beyond normal.

Hi,
Someone needs to convert lol because it could be a simple misunderstanding in the op
But you saying 92c is normal well I have to say bye bye to you.

I already cleaned the laptop and replaced the thermal paste with silver mx-4. It used to be thermal throttling and the temperatures got 98 celcius

Yes as already mentioned now your only choices are a laptop cooler like this maybe this one https://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-...rmaltake+laptop+cooler&qid=1599048627&sr=8-38 i have two i use and they are the best i have used. Also you can undervolt the cpu with Intel's XTU or
unclewebb ThrottleStop APP.

ThrottleStop>>> https://www.techpowerup.com/download/techpowerup-throttlestop/

A undervolt on the CPU could potentially shave off 15-20 cels!
i recommend you do both.

The cpu is already undervolted and what did changed are the clockspeed and not the temperatures since the laptop is power limit throttling. Also I already have my own cooler now it's not the best but might help the laptop get more air

Well i don't think there is anything else you can do as you cleaned and repasted which did shave off some temps and you undervolted and your using a laptop cooler. I can not think of anything else that can be done.

Hi,
If it were this bad when it was new it should of been returned for thermal defect reasons it's better advertised as a space heater not a laptop.

haha i can agree. i didnt know much about these few years ago and since that my laptop has been overheating and thermal throttling since then

ooooh i just seen in a dell forum that a bios update includes - Updated Thermal Algorithm for performance. maybe you could try that?

hm i apologize that the one is heating is the acer aspire v7 but thanks tho!

yes they're spinning
Hi,
Well mx4 2019 is okay paste if it's wasn't too runny I've gotten some really wet that wasn't very good
I always go back to noctua nt-h1 for best results.

Hi,
Someone needs to convert lol because it could be a simple misunderstanding in the op
But you saying 92c is normal well I have to say bye bye to you.
Most non-gaming laptops have small barely-adequate heatsinks, so 90c+ is not unusual under load.

Hi,
Might be time to turn off a couple of the worst cores.

As to your 2nd question, people's desires when getting a laptop are counter intuitive .... light and thin run counter to battery life, performance and running cool. Our laptops run normally around 43 - 55C running CAD and in Gaming in the low 70s. New, I ran my personal lappie overclocked, tested it with Furmark and temps were in the 70s. They are made by the same company (Clevo) that built Alienware before the Dell Purchase. Each one is custom built with options on screen, CPU, GPU, RAM, Storage OS, Wireless, and even TIM (IC Diamond . Grizzly Kryonaut). The heat sinks are heavy copper. The fans barely ramp up but you do have the ability to set them to full speed when gaming to 100%. Most folks wouldn't recognize Clevo as they are often branded by their distributors. Alienware was the best known of these but WidowPC, Falcomnorthwest are other more well known names. But that's the same thing with most laptop brands people "know".

Quanta sells to (among others) HP, Lenovo, Apple, Acer, Dell, NEC, and Fujitsu
Compal sells to (among others) Acer, Dell, Lenovo and HP
Wistron (former manufacturing & design division of Acer) sells to Dell, Acer, Lenovo and HP
Inventec sells to HP, Dell and Lenovo;
Pegatron sells to Asus, Apple, Dell, Acer and Microsoft
Foxconn sells to Asus, Dell, HP and Apple
Flextronics (former Arima Computer Corporation notebook division) sells to HP

Clevo builds the Chassis, CPUs, RAM, GPUs, storage and Wifi options are installed per customer order, Tho getting rare, desktop CPUs / GPUs and even SLI have historically been available. Best part is they cost less than comparably equipped laptops from the above brands.

As to laptop coolers, when I overclocked my 1st one, i thought it give one a try. Test was:

Lappie on Desk
Lappie on Engineer's scale
Lappie on cooler.

Being an engineering firm, got plant engineer's scales laying around, placed one of these under the laptop to get back end off desk

For the 3rd step , used a 3 fan laptop cooler. Measuring CPU and GPU temps as well as surface temps (infrared thermometer). I found :

1. Plugging the laptop cooler into the USB port of the lappie burnt out two USB ports on the right side of the laptop, keft side survived. If you are going to use a cooler, make sure that you use a independently powered USB hub.

2. As the cooler fans did not line up with the laptop air intakes and presumably, as the inside of the 1.25 " laptop half fair amount of space, little CPU / GPU heat is removed by conduction thry the chassis. there was no significant temperature change. I imagine thus would be greater on a super thin laptop.

3. The engineering scale had the biggest impact on CPU / GPU / HD temps

Looking back, I wish I had measured the desk and laptop cooler surface temps.

The laptop was purchased in 2012 and is still used every day.
