Lenovo Y580 high cpu temp

2014-05-21, 22:46 PM

Hi there,

 

i am an owner of a Lenovo Y580. QM3630, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, GTX660 Video. Since a while I am observing that my idle temperatures are pretty high. I am monitoring them with RealTemp - a techpowerup application. While load of CPU < 3 and CPU clock ~ 1GHz the temperatures are about 48-55(Celsius). I am an architecture student and I am using my laptop mainly for CAD applications as well as rendering of images (V-Ray engine). I sometimes have to render hours long, but I suppose that could not damage neither the CPU nor the entire machine since I am always using my cooling pad - Cooler Master X3. I am in possession of this laptop since 09/2012 this means that I have 3-4 months up to the warranty end, but I am not sure if this is a real problem or those are the temperatures the laptop shall be running on. I am also not sure if the hardware warranty is 1 or 2 years and if it is going to cover this damage(if there is a faulty part or something)... So, I am begging you for explanations to my dilemmas.

 

Nikolai

My Y580 idles between 39 and 44 with both 3210m and 3840qm. I don't think you have anything to worry about. At lest not yet. What are you temps under load?

Yesterday working on a project for university in a CAD programme it reached 68 Celsius. CPU Load was about 15-20%...

The maximum safe operating temperature for the Intel Core i7-3630QM is 105C.

Your CPU is running well within the Intel specification.  When it gets about 30C hotter than it is getting now, blow some compressed air into the heatsink to clean out the dust but for right now, there is no need to worry.

That's quite weird, because the temperatures I had at the very beginning were a lot lower... I'm not sure if something's gone faulty after the long lasting renderings I had to do.

I'd say the thermal paste dried a bit, hardened, and worsened it's thermal properties. I saw quite a few ideapad mainboards with heatsink removed, and there's usually too much paste, and for all older devices it was basically solid.
