How to know if the temp is good

Postby Rambytes » Fri Apr 12, 2013 11:38 pm

Hello all,

First, sorry for my english.

I have a well good condition Dell Laptop (3 years laptop, 2xcpu@2Ghz), with good space to have a nice airflow. And i'm asking if the temperature in CoreTemp is good or I need to apply a offset.

In Idle, CoreTemp RC5 display 39oC/104oF and wjen I do video or game, the CPU go arround 65oC/150oF.

39oC/104oF is pretty high for a laptop in idle.... it's why i'm asking if ICoreTemp don't read the good temperature and I need to apply a offset.

What do you think?

I think that 39C is a great temperature for a laptop in idle, and 65C is safe if you're gaming.
Is this an Intel or AMD processor? As you gave no indication of what it was.
My 1.3GHz Core 2 Duo laptop idles at 40C.

Ho, excuse-me.... my CPU is a Intel Mobile dual@2Ghz. So at 40oC is good in Idle you think? So no offset to apply?

40C is very good for a laptop. And Intel CPUs don't need any offsets, it is mostly used with AMD CPUs.

40C at idle for a laptop is quite normal. Temps of 70C-90C are also normal on a laptop under heavy use. Laptop CPUs/APUs are specifically designed to function properly at these higher temps which are typical because of the minimal CPU/APU cooling systems employed on laptops.

No fixed offset should be used on AMD CPUs according to AMD engineering. A proper algorithm is however required to process the register data that Core Temp, HW Monitor and other programs use to attempt to report the CPU/APU temps.
