Did I damage my GPU or CPU too much already?

So I know that if you run your GPU and CPu at temperature above 86 degrees it will start to deteroriate.

 

I was testing the lenovo y410p with different games and there was a time when my cpu and gpu both reach 86 degrees celsius. I only played the game for about 10 minutes or so.

 

Do you think there were any permanent damage on that?

 

The laptop is still relatively new. Like about a week old.

no but if it reaches that temperature you should start thinking on a cooling base.

i used a laptop with no refrigeration at all that reached 100ºC during months and nothing ever happened to it (except underclocking, of course). i don't recommend it tho Smiley Tongue

Re: Did I damage my GPU or CPU too much already?

if you have the 4700MQ like the y510p then intel rates it at 100c before its considred even in the danger zone, that being siad when its that how the rest of the computer liek your HDD is geting quite hot probably. if you use realtemp what are your temps at max when you have hada game on for a while? also if your using the SLI card it is rated for lower safe temps since its got smaller cooling. also are you just worried about your temps or has your laptop started slowing down?

My laptop hasn't been slowing down.

I have the 755m gt and I was wondering what is the danger zone temperature for that card. Sometimes it would hit up to 81 c.

thats pretty hot as its proably around 80 or 90c what game is doing that? dow your gpu cool through the same heatpipe as the cpu? or is your optical bay a gpu fan? whats your cpu hitting at those times? is the gpu fan ramping up alot at those temps? you could use something like afterburner to manualy set a better fan curve to have more noise but more cooling if you want.

Planetside 2 and Rift sometimes do that.

 

The Witcher 2 does it sometimes too.

 

I thought the bios is locked down so the fan speed can't be alter manually?
