P50 P70 average temp

Hi all!

 

Would you all please tell me what is the temperature range that your P50 or P70 typically operates at?   It would also be great if you could measure it under average office use, internet browsing, plus maybe picture/video editing or low-to-mid-level gaming (if you do those sorts of things). 

 

Also, to circumvent potential confusion, please denote what machine you have, the components thereof (i.e. CPU, GPU, RAM, storage drive) and in what scale you are getting these temp readings. Smiley Happy

 

Thank you.

Re: P50 P70 average temp

I ran stress testing on a P70 in a review I wrote.  You can find it under "featured" on the first page of the forum.

Re: P50 P70 average temp

My ThinkPad P50 with i7 6700HQ M1000M is always cool with out any noise. The cooling system is excellent. The "Package Temperature" in Intel Extreme Tuning Utility is usually between 40-60C (104-140F).

Re: P50 P70 average temp

Thanks, all of you!

I'm running about 40C under light load.

Re: P50 P70 average temp

I'm using Xeon E3-1575M V5, M5000M, 64G Ram ECC, 960pro.

and my temperature result after the stress test worries me.

Temperature was 95C under the test,

and even at the idle situation, temperature is about 60C.

Does it require some maintainence?

Re: P50 P70 average temp

You should be careful what stress test program(s) you use on any hardware. Some are not real life and apply unusually high unrealistic loads that can actually damage your hardware. At idle my cores can go as low as 27-28 to 34-37 (core temp) depending on room temp and my Nvidia Quadro M5000M is at 45 (MSI After burner). Even when I run programs to rate my system like 3DMark they never go near your temps. Heat of course degrades the lifetime of all your components especially the CPU and GPU. I also recommend a cooler I use a CM Storm SF-17
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E5AEITU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Also make sure you are keeping up with the BIOS upgrades. I highly recommend using Lenovo's System Update software to keep all your drivers, bios, etc. on the P70 up to date. I do however only have the 1505M your chip wasn't available when I bought my P70, I'm jealous! I also have 64GB ECC RAM and x2 PCIe NVMe 512GB SSDs in RAID 0.

I agree, what are you all using to synthetic stress with? Aida64 would work well but things like intel burn in test is a bad idea.

Re: P50 P70 average temp

OK I'll add a few other thoughts/comments. I am just not a fan of long term burn in tests and I think that is old school. I prefer shorter term burn in tests. I use Windows Memory Diagnostic tool to test memory. I use Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool for the CPU. And more recently I also use Lenovo's Solution Center hardware test. I use the Lenovo test scheduled like it was designed so it runs periodically. The memory and CPU tests I run once when I get a new system and that's it unless I have an issue then I rerun those. Running your system for long periods of time with any burn in software is not a good idea IMHO. Oh I use CoreTemp to monitor my CPU temps like I mentioned before, it seems to be one of the better temp programs out there. I see around 70 using these types of programs with my cooler running in a room that is around 70 tops and never pegged there it just shoots up there occasionally.. Now if you are getting 95 on your cores here are some things to pay attention to:

1) Does the program you use to stress test show those same temps on most air cooled systems especially laptops, do some research.
2) Can you hear your fans running? Maybe you have a bad fan.
3) If you fans are running is there any blockage based on two things, foreign material like dust/pet hair/dander clogging the grills, and/or not enough clearance to the grills for air to flow.
4) Are all cores running at that same temp together?

Re: P50 P70 average temp

I tried Intel extreme tuning utility and it seems to be the source of the problem then... 

1), I have no idea.

2) Fans were running at full speed as I remember.

3) My laptop was on the flat surface.

4) All core were running at similar temperature.

 

Now I switched to the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool at burn-in mode and temperature is just around 80C.

Maybe I was torturing the processor without knowing what actually I was doing. Thank you.
