I feel like my laptop is getting a bit hot these days. I get 57+ C on all CPU cores and around 50C on the GPU.
Last I checked the gaming temps could go upto a 97-98C on the GPU. Is this normal?

Hi niankaki ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Here are some discussion with same temperature concern for this model that you can review.
If you feel that the temperature goes up fast unlike before , then best to consider having it checked and cleaned for both fan and thermal paste reapplication. You may also call in technical support for in warranty recommendation.
Take time to review the links above to compare it with your system.
Update us how it goes.

What is your ambient temp?
Do you have SLI version (with Ultrabay GPU)?
Y510p can run hot and I am telling you because I have this laptop. There are a lot of fixes for this laptop to run cooler, let me know about the above questions and I can help you reduce those temps.

Sorry for upping this subject again, but I saw you said you have solutions for Y510P temp problems.
On idle, my GPU's temps are around 50-55, CPU is the same.
While gaming, the laptop sky rockets to 90-99 degrees for the GPU's and the CPU is not far behind while edging very closley to the 90-93 range.
Those high temps are mainly while using SLI and playing games on the laptop. After a while of gaming in those temps the laptop usually stops and crash. It only happens when i use SLI, while using just the GPU1, it reaches the high temps but never crashes (I'm assuming it's probably a fail safe on the ultrabay).
Do you have any good solutions for this?
I tried Vaccum fans fot both cards, but it's a bit bulky and usually just downgrade around 3-5 degrees. Hoping there is a better solution for this.

I cannot really say about the idle temps but your max temps can definitely be reduced. In the process, I am sure, we can reduce the idle temps a little as well.
Lets start by a couple of mods to the case itself -
1) This thread details on how to remove a small piece of the back cover to make more room for the Ultrabay GPU fan.
This mod helps in much better air cooling of the Ultrabay GPU. I did this mod with a basic screwdriver and a good kitchen knife.
2) Remove the back air filter and use your laptop without it. That increase the air flow by a lot.
3) If you have a decent laptop cooler, use it or buy one. I used the Cooler master X2, but I would recommend the X3 or similar fast rpm with multiple fans.
See, how much you can reduce your temp with these mods. After this, there are some extreme solutions such as installing unlocked BIOS to unlock voltage and clock control.
Which BIOS version do you have installed? (I hope 3.05 or earlier)
