Too hot?

2019-03-03, 23:20 PM

Hi,

 

So I have a Lenovo Y530 for about 4 months now and I'm worried about my CPU temps. When I play Diablo 3 at full settings, my CPU hits 90 degrees Celsius.

 

You people would suggest me to repaste or undervolt my CPU, but it's still under the warranty and that would completely void it.

 

Is this CPU temp under load normal for my 4 month old gaming laptop?

 

Specs:

 

CPU: Intel Core i5 8300h

GPU: Nividia GTX 1050 4GB

RAM: 8GB

OS: Windows 10 64-bit

 

Many thanks.

 

NOTE: All my hardware drivers are updated to the latest version.

If it doesn't thermal throttle then it is fine. Undervolt will not void warranty that's for sure. Repasting your laptops thermal paste should be fine too because lenovo let's you do whatever you want with your laptop(there are no stickers on heatpipes, rams and other parts) as long as you don't damage yourself something while changing(for example: ram, paste, HDD and bla bla) you are fine.

Yea... but we're talking about a 4 month old laptop. Just to remind you, 90 degrees Celsius is just 10 degrees away from the maximum. I've seen the CPU temp spike to 96 degrees Celsius.

 

I don't care about repasting or undervolting my laptop. When I buy a laptop, I expect it to be perfectly working. This sounds like overheating and If I continue to use it, it will be damaged and I certainly DON'T have the money as student to afford another new laptop.

 

Can someone please give me a straight anwser or just an experience? I feel like Lenovo is just letting people down.

You are using gaming laptop(just to remind you) more power=more heat. I7-7700HQ is pretty hot and needs undervolt and I5-8300h is more powerfull than that 7th generation I7. Buy whatever you want it's not manufacturer fault that CPU is so hot.

https://www.reddit.com/r/intel/comments/9osear/i5_8300h_safe_at_90_degrees/

 

similiar "problems". 8th generation processors are very powerful and extremely hot. LIKE I MENTIONED BEFORE MORE POWER=MORE HEAT.

Undervolt + repaste it(max 10minutes of your time to do both) or buy laptop with slower processor and use without thermal throttling.

So when undervolting, what is the best way to do it?

 

I undervolted my CPU cache and core with ThrottleStop at both -0.125. It did drop my CPU temps significantly.

 

Thanks for the advice.

Undervolting shouldn't affect warranty. Use Intel's XTU or throttlestop. Make sure there's adequate area around the fans for cooling. Trust me, even a little bit of undervolting will drop temperatures significantly.

Yea, I know what you mean. I've undervolted my CPU with ThrottleStop. Before I undervolted my laptop, my CPU temps at idle were between the 40-60 degrees Celcius.

 

Now I'm at a whooping 28-30 degrees Celsius!

 

I didn't even have to reapply cooling paste to my CPU and GPU. I will do that when my laptop is off the warranty.

 

Thanks guys!
