Mine is from 75-to 85, is this normal? My computer is ASUS K50IN notebook :)

Here are the temp of my CPU, i used RealTemp program :)

  1. That is not normal, that's very hot for a CPU. I suggest you buy a CPU cooler like the Cooler Master 212 EVO, they're not expensive, and they're very useful. First, check if it can fit in your case.
  2. Oh wait, sorry I'm drunk, I thought you were talking about a desktop, I'm sorry. Um it still is high, you should get a laptop cooler. They're around 50$ for 17in ones. 40$ for 15, and even less.

    So i cant change my cpu on laptop? Btw how those laptop coolers look?
  4. is the machine rather old? it may need cleaning , also make sure you use it on a smooth flat surface or when on your lap keep the vents clear.

    My lap is on clean table, how should i clean my laptop from inside? Its like 3~ years old
  6. i tend to stick a vacuum cleaner on the vents.

    only other thing would be to take it apart and re apply thermalpaste to the cpu.
  7. Open up the screws in the back, pop off the case, and clean the fan from its dust. The laptops coolers are just a little pad with a couple fans powered by USB. They make a big difference, but first, clean the dust from you laptop.

    How should i reach my lap cpu? And what is vent?

    It's a laptop not a desktop, reapply the paste, the OP probably will apply it wrong making it all worse, just clean the dust off the fan, and make sure your vents are always open, and then get one of those notebook coolers.

    What are those "vents" ? Btw i know how to apply thermal paste, just apply little P form paste on mid on the cpu and spread/push with some plastic

    Don't do that, it's too risky and unless you can do it properly it'll only be worse.
    Just get a notebook cooler, here is an example: http://www.xoticpc.com/full-size-aluminum-notebook-cooler-dual-fans-usb-powered-for-laptops-p-2508.html
  12. vents as in the gaps in the sides of your laptop where the air flows. if you do take it apart to redo the thermal paste, if you start unscrewing and and start to not feel confident in doing it then just dont and screw parts back together and get a cooling pad.

    also if you do re apply thermal paste just apply a rice grain to the centre and dont spread it, let the pressure of the heatsink when you put it back on spread it.

    Why it is risky? If i will clean the inside of my laptop, then i should clean the cpu?

    If you don't apply the thermal paste right, all you could do is make it run even hotter, and if you do take it apart and don't put the heatsink back on properly, again, you could make it run hotter. Just clean the fan from the dust, and get the cooling pad, it's the safe solution.

    At first i should remove the old paste? With what should i do that? And what paste should i get? Is there any tutorial on how to apply thermal paste correctly? Because i found one when u put P letter in center and push with some plastic
  16. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyXLu1Ms-q4 basically the first method on this video.

    So i dont need to push with plastic? Just leave the P form paste in the middle and let the cpu cooler do the rest? And how should i remove the old paste?
  18. yes just leave the thermal compound in the middle and place the heatsink down on top (video was just a demonstration of how paste spreads), if your cpu does not have a heatspreader like this http://bcchardware.com/gallery/albums/RV630XT/RV630XT_GPU.jpg then place a smaller amount onto the center.

    use isopropyl alcohol to clean the old paste.

    Isopropyl alcohol? Where should i get this? Does it work with alcohol "spirit"? I dont know how does it call in english, but here it is:

    edit: i think its "methylated spirits" i dont know
  20. Best answer
    aslong as its alcohol i think that should work on, just make sure you put it on a cloth and not too much, mostly wipe the old paste off first, put some alcohol on the cloth and only touch the cloth where the thermal paste was.
