Solved Barnd New core i5 3210M is running hot.

November 27, 2012 at 08:53:23
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, Core i5 3rd Gen 2.501 Ghz / 4GB
I just purchased my new laptop and after using it for a week or two i installed HW Monitor & found that my cpu is running hot aroung 45-50 degree Celcius when at idel state or browsing & songs etc.

I don't find my notebook hot when touching at surface or keeping hand at fan, its cool everywhere but its CPU, Cores are hot when reading HW Monitor.

Its Lenovo G580
4 GB RAM
Intel HD 4000
500 GB HD
Windows 7 x64-bit

Do lenovo provides any utility for fan, so that i can program it to rotate at full speed everytime?
I don't want a risk on my CPU. I tried Speed Fan but not working.

I don't know its normal or not but i though i should confirm it.

Thanks.

✔ Best Answer
The TJUNCTION temp for the Core i5 3210M is 105C. It is also protected by "Thermal Monitoring Technology", so you have nothing to worry about. Just make sure you provide a clear path to the cooling vents on the underside of the laptop. In other words, always place the laptop on a hard surface like a table, NOT on a bed, couch, carpet, your lap, or any other "soft surface" that may block the vents.

"Thermal Monitoring Technologies protect the processor package and the system from thermal failure through several thermal management features. An on-die Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) detects the core's temperature, and the thermal management features reduce package power consumption and thereby temperature when required in order to remain within normal operating limits protect the processor package and the system from thermal failure through several thermal management features.

Exactly. It is running normal and there is nothing to worry about. Your temperature is well within the limits and only slightly hotter than a desktop would have been due to the larger internal room and better cooling.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Also keep in mind that the Ivy Bridge proceesors run hotter than Sandy Bridge due to intel using thermal paste for Ivy Bridge heat spreader instead of the heat spreader being soldered on like with Sandy Bridge. This was mostly due to cost cutting messures by intel and because of that is one of the main reasons Ivy Bridge will run hotter then Sandy Bridge other main reasons are more transitors into a smaller die as well will make it run hotter.

Cool, you put it in the barn? Is it cold out there in the barn? Maybe in the barn it's better for overclocking if it's cold out in the barn!
