overheating

Is it normal for a g560 to hit up to 72c under load? The notebook is brand new, cleaned, and in an air conditioned home.

 

Just curious if I should return it to the store for another or get some good thermal paste to fix it...

Re: overheating

If it's under load, 72 doesn't seem unreasonable.

Re: overheating

If you're concerned, and the notebook gets hotter than what you think is usual then I'd take it back and get a different notebook.
