Scared about processor temperature.

hello. I searched the web for information about the optimal temperature for my processor. The thing is that im constantly converting videos with RipBot264. and the processor state is always 99% average, so im getting temperatures arround 80C. My question is, does anybody know where do i get the tcase for my processor ( if there is one), and how do i speed up my fan to get lower temperatures. Thanx

CPU: Mobile Intel core i5 540M arrandle (its a laptop)

That's more of a job for desktops. I would suggest you get a laptop cooling base to improve air flow and move the warmer air away from the laptop better. Keep the room you are in cooler if possible since ambient temperature can effect the cooling efficiency. Look in Power options and BIOS settings for settings related to fans speed percentage in connection to CPU temperature, but I doubt there will be much there, and if there is, you have to be careful not to hurt your battery life too badly either.

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

I already have a laptop cooling base, but is not making any difference, i've been able to control my cpu frequency by decreasing the cpu usage in power options, but that doesnt give me the maximum performance i want, any way, maybe im not overheating my cpu. it would be better if i knew at what temperature my cpu should be to keep it safe. that i heard it was called tcase, but im starting to think it is more of a desktop term. any clue of where i can find a optimal temperature ?

fingers thank you very much for your answer anyway , im considering getting a better cooling base.

That should help. Your CPU has a thermal limit and this will trigger a shut down before there is any real damage, but running it very hot too much of the time will shorten it's expected life some.

Temperatures around 80C are most definitely not ideal, however that processor is most likely around a 105C max as listed on the specs for intel's website. If it's at the low 80's
or high 70's that's not insane really, a lot of the newer processors are capable of running stable at higher temps.
