I've been going all around the web trying to find the standard specifications for my processor because I'm worried the processor is starting to get warm and perhaps I should clean some intake vents. My computer hasn't started to shutdown automatically, but that's no reason for me to sit by and do some maintenance. I have recently downloaded "Speccy" from Download.com to monitor my CPU temperature among other things. It's currently listing my processor as running at 65C or 150F (give or take due to constant change.

So should I take apart my Compaq Presario V600 laptop and clean out the fan? Should I worry about my warm CPU or should I expect it from this laptop? In case any other information was required, I'll paste in some additional summary information.

Thats normal for a laptop my Core 2 Duo P8700 goes to ~150 under a full load (160-170 (with an undervolt) running Prime95, I just benched it). No need to clean anything out, its within its temperature range

That's what's worrying me. It's not a full load. It's idling.
