The CPU (Intel Core i7-3610QM) idles at around 60 C, and under load it goes up to 85-90 C, I'm wondering if this is normal, I'm mostly used to destkop computers so it seems high to me. (results obtained with Prime95 or while playing Guild Wars 2). The fans ramps up to 90% under load which means it probably works properly but I'm not sure it's good enough.
The GPU (GT 630M) seems fine though it idle at around 60 C but it doesn't seem to go above 75 C under load (tested with Kombuster)
I got the temps using the Toshiba monitoring software and also by using the "All CPU Meter" widget. Sadly, I don't think I have access to any more temperature sensors. (MB temp would have been nice)
I've looked through all the manual and I can't find any mention of what a normal operating temperature should be
Any input would be appreciated
