heating & is this normal

Is it normal for the Ideapad510 to heat up so fast. It isnt to the point where it shots down, but I can evemn feel the heat in the area nest to the touchpad... the fan isnt buzzing, but it isnt silent either. Please let me know if this is normal or something I should get checked

download everest and see what temperature your CPU is running at.

Re: heating & is this normal

So if you load the CPU at 100% it only reaches 63 degrees?

Re: heating & is this normal

Tj max is the temperature that your CPU will underclock at to prevent further overheating.

Re: heating & is this normal

ctrl + alt + del ... it should tell you the cpu load in percentage, and you can look at the everest for temperature. 63 degrees doesn't sound to bad, if it gets to over 70 degrees constantly, then you should watch out.

Re: heating & is this normal

Y510 with only 63 C at full load? Man, you're lucky - these a consiedered as low talking about Y510. Normal values for this model under load are about 75 and even higher if you forgot to clean the dust.

The main reason for such high temps is videocard that heats much more than CPU. No, it's not replaceable anyhow by practice.
