CPU average temperature 100F/40C

2014-05-08, 6:57 AM

Hello world,

 

My thinkpad x220T has been recently hitting temperatures of 100 degrees fahrenheit/ 40 degrees celsius. This is during regular everyday use i.e. google chrome internet browsing, microsoft word. 

 

Is this normal? or is the temperature too high? Any recommendations?

 

2nd generation i7 btw.

 

Thanks to all.

Solved! See the solution

It's very low. 

In comparison on the i7 Helix the temps are usually between 55 and 60 deg C. An i5 Dell Vostro 3700 I had some time ago was constantly around 80 deg C (everything perfectly clean, it was "by design").

 

On my highly overclocked gaming PC they also go up to 80, but the cooler is heavier than a laptop.

 

CPU's can easilly handle temps up to 90 deg C and more.
