I bought a used Lenovo Y50-70 (the one with GTX 860m )
I have no problem with it but I was wondering about the maximum safe Temperature for both CPU and GPU
now when I use it for browsing or other normal use I get these readings
but while heavy Use for gaming the CPU reach 83C sometimes and the GPU reach the 75C
I cleaned the air Vents from dusts and cleaned the Fans and replaced the Thermal Paste
I put the laptop on a cooling pad (chinese one but the main Idea is to lift it from the desk )
so what do You think qus. Shoulld I worry about it ?
is it normal to have these Temperatures ?

Hi Agentaltair47 ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
"CPU temps for gaming are fine as long as they are below 90 celsius.
My CPU temps are between
73-79 for Fallout New Vegas (currently playing) - 79 max
80-85 for Dragon Age Inquisition - 85 max
75-80 for Shadow of Mordor
mostly all other games the CPU stays in the range of 70-75. Inquistion is the most graphics intensive game I am playing.
GPU temps are usually between 75-85 depending on the game.
My ambient temps are higher right now (28-30), resulting in these temps.
In short, your temps are perfectly normal. "
********** from a similar post
Ideally running the pc on minimum applications like clean boot when playing would help and likewise assuring that there is no running 3rd party application that can contribute to additional processes like malwares/ virus .
Ensure that the vents and filters are clean and not obtructed and if you feel a need for additional accessory to keep it cool.
But if you feel unusually warm on anyspot specially those that gets unnaturally warm , don't hesitate to call in tech support for further recommendation .
Hope this answered your query .
Update us for any other concerns if needed.

first of all thanx for your reply
second I tested the game with BF3 in multiplayer and the CPU reached 83 as a max Temperature is it considered as an old game that should not make the CPU reach this Heat ?
also I tried it with Dying light and gave me the same results and sometimes less then 83
can you suggest me a good cooling pad that can effectively decrease the temperatures ?

Hi Agentaltair47 ,
As I usually suggest , if you feel that seems not usual then it maybe worth to have it checked further .
For this the warranty would be a good option .
For coolers depending on it pricing and features , reviews are good reference to use since I can't really suggest particular brands.
Hope this helps

I have a lenovo Y50-70 previously I asked about heat issues
my pc used to reach 95 and sometimes more
I replaced the thermal paste with mx 4 and now it's a little bit cooler
I noticed something
If I connect the AC power supply it became 10 degree hotter
is that normal ?
for example this pic with AC adapter pluuged in
and it's 10 degree cooler without AC adapter
is this normal ?
and how to keep it cool with the AC adapter plugged in

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

Because there is only 4 possibility for overheating of laptop,
Update us how it goes.
