Thinkpad cpu temp normal?

December 22, 2012 8:46:53 AM

Hi, I was testing my hdd health so I thought I would check the temps of my laptop, its only a couple of months old but the fan is on most of the time & sometimes revs up, the temps when idle are 48-50c and when it's under normal usage like watching hd movie its around 60c, but when its under heavy load it goes up to 80c, is this normal, the cpu is a i7 3520m.

speedfan also shows another temp which it states is acpi this goes really high above 80c sometimes, 65c at normal usage. the hdd is always around 35c.
