I purchased it about half and a month ago
everything seems fine except the heat
Idle CPU temperature is around 65-70 celcius
Surfing net, watching youtube 75-90 celcius and spikes really hard, it may changes from 69 to 80 and back to 75 and go up to 90 in a short moment. Is it normal?
Max cpu temperature is 100 celcius, and I mean it always reaches 100 celcius while I playing games.
but GPU temperature never went higher than 75 celcius
I already tried basic methods of cooling it down (raise notebook, blow it with a fan, Turn on Airconditioner) but they don't really help anything, temperature stays the same.
what whould I do?
my spec is
CPU i7-2670QM 2.2GHz
555M 2GB GDDR5
8 GB DDR3 ram
Windows 7 home premium 64bit

I found this threat
I want to check if it is my case, but I have big problem
There is a frame that blocks removal of fans and cpu = =
in the red box is a frame i mention
blue circles are screws that are blocked by the frame
brown circle is a minus screw that locks CPU
What to do with the frame?
And do removing cpu or heatsink void warranty?

Yes indeed the warranty is most likely voided by opening the pc. And that frame is not blocking the screws or anything, because to remove the heatsink, you have to almost completly disassemble your laptop, take the motherboard out of the pc and then remove the heatsink.

Bet accepted. Now please, let us see how (trust me, you can't replace thermal paste without taking off keyboard and front cover and take out the dvd drive,...at the end you take out the motherboard from the "keyboard" side of the laptop and only then can you unscrew the heatsink then clean and reapply thermal paste).

Your pics look very similar to my Y530 down to the lip and edges that seem to keep the cooling assembly from sliding out, but it does. If you are removing the motherboard from the machine to remove the cooling assembly, I think you are probably not doing something right. --Actually my bad... that pic is the bottom of your machine? I still don't think you would need to remove the motherboard. Is there a service manual for your machine available?
To OP: You are correct Sir.
