Hi,
i just noticed some strange thing last night, while watching movie (i kept chrome on background because i was on fb).
suddenly i felt that the laptop became awfully hot. i can even hear the fan spinning so fast, and when i open CPUID HWMonitor, it shows that the CPU temp 88C, which is the first time happened to me. (while playing game the highest temperature for me is 75-78C). at first i thought it was the movie because i was watching a hd movie, so i tried to close it but nothing happened, so i tried to close all the programs, start from winamp, word, and still nothing happened.. but when i close chrome, the temp slowly goes back to 53C (which is my idle temp) so i tried to open chrome again, and again the temperature started to build up until it reach 85C. i didn't even open anything except facebook.
What is it wrong with chrome? shuold i uninstall it?

Thanks

i would try a different browser to see if this condition persists. try firefox or even ie to see. if you are liking a chrome based browser try comodo dragon. never run across this problem before myself. kinda high idle temp imho tho.

so it would seem to be a chrome problem. like i said, try comodo dragon if you like a chrome based browser and see if it overheats there.

Next time it heats up check the task manager and see how much resources chrome is taking. If you have a bunch of windows open including watching movies it can take some resources, although I don't think i've ever gotten to the point of an overheating computer (not counting my last laptop, which was dying for other reasons)
