Y730 Heating Issues

Greetings and salutations,


I picked up a Y730 a few months ago.  Recently, I've noticed a considerable amount of stop and start while gaming (specifically after upgrading to Windows 7).  I ran CPUID Hardware Monitor, and I found that while gaming the Core Temperature of my processors are running at around 80 degrees Celsius.  The GPU temperature is running at around 75 degrees C. 


I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing this kind of overheating or had a similar experience after upgrading.  I thought it might be the drivers/software - so I reinstalled everything.  I've ordered a laptop cooler that should arrive on Monday, but I wanted to see if this was normal or if something was potentially wrong with my system.

Re: Y730 Heating Issues

These temperatures are quite OK. I'd rather say your GPU is not heating the way it should.
