Hi guys, i have a 2 week old Asus K45DR. All is running well with the lappy however when i downloaded Speccy to monitor the tempratures i got a little worried as i saw my CPU temp averaging 95 degrees when i was running a game in the background. Its a old game Silkroad online that is not really graphic intensive so what gives? Those temps are when i am tabbed out of the game, when i tab back in the CPU temp can hit 105.

I have no other apps running at the same time and the air vents are completely unblocked. The motherboard and graphics are averaging at 45 degrees. Did some googling but all i can see is people saying to use a cooling pad. Could anyone please advise what my next course of action should be?

I tried restarting the laptop, this time with not even the game running. The CPU temp still runs 95 degrees.

Are there certain settings i should be tweaking via the Engine Vision Control Centre? I basically have not touched any of the settings on the lappy since geting it.

Here are screengrabs from both Speccy and HWMonitor

EDIT: both screen grabs were taken at seperate times. Now as i open both programmes they are showing me the exact same temps for all components.

The maximum temperature is 100°C for the CPU, the laptop should stop at a lower temperature than the maximum. Maybe you have a bad sensor, it gives you an erroneous reading.

Is there any way to confirm that other than pulling the laptop apart?

Even if you disassemble the laptop, what will you do, the sensor is a component sometime underneath the CPU. You can try reinstalling the driver for the chipset, maybe this will solve the problem.

Will give that a try, However having said that is there a possibility that the heatsink was not properly placed and caused this?

If the heatsink was not correctly installed on the CPU, that means the sensor is giving a good reading, and the laptop should power down before 100°C.
