What were the system temps 7 months ago? When the laptop is idle - what is the CPU usage?
Have you checked to see if the fan exhaust is clogged up?
Unfortunately i never checked the temperature when it was new. the problem started around two weeks ago. and i have yet to open up my laptop to check for clogs but by the naked eye i do not see any clogs.
Could some jerk have displaced the HDD and that might be causing these problems.?
