Hello Everyone!

Does anyone know the normal running temp for an M17xR4 with an Intel Core i7 like what is listed in my sig?

using an app called core temp to monitor temp readings, looks like I have a peak of 156F on one core and a low of 106F
Does that help? Im just trying to find a normal operating temp range for the processor...

Idle (0-10% load) should be around 30-49C
Light Load (10-49%) around 50-60C
Medium/Heavy Load (75%+ constant CPU workload) 60-85C

In laptops I've found these are the average temps. Mind this was with default thermal compound and after some use (some dust build up in the fins). If you're hitting higher than 90 while playing games I recommend picking up a cooling pad. I recommend the Cooler Master U3 or U2(and virtually everyone else on this forum will say the same I bet ;P )

Those temps seem to be fine. Just remember, if your laptop can cook and egg, then there's probably a problem.

My M17xR4 idles between 48-52c and tops out at 72-73c during a three hour raid in ToT.
