Abnormal temperature of the processor (Core i7)

December 2016


I just bought a Dell Studio 15 (Core i7 720 QM, 4GB, 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon (TM) HD5470) and I checked the temperature with Everest and here are the results:

5 minutes after startup:
Field Value
Sensor Properties
Probe type CPU, HDD, Intel PCH
Sensor type GPU Diode (ATI-Diode)

Temperatures
Motherboard 26 ° C (79 ° F)
CPU # 1 / Core # 1 48 ° C (144 ° F)
CPU # 1 / Core # 2 48 ° C (144 ° F)
CPU # 1 / Core # 3 47 ° C (144 ° F)

PCH 59 ° C (149 ° F)
GPU Diode 48 ° C (136 ° F)
Seagate ST9500420AS [TRIAL VERSION]

Fans
GPU 30%

Values ??of current dissipation
Processor 22.73 W


After 15 minutes:
Field Value
Sensor Properties
Probe type CPU, HDD, Intel PCH
Sensor type GPU Diode (ATI-Diode)

Temperatures
Motherboard 26 ° C (79 ° F)
CPU # 1 / Core # 1 62 ° C (144 ° F)
CPU # 1 / Core # 2 62 ° C (144 ° F)
CPU # 1 / Core # 3 62 ° C (144 ° F)
CPU # 1 / Core # 4 71 ° C (160 ° F)

Don't you think it is too hot?

Solution


You shouldn't worry as these temperatures are correct for a laptop equipped with a Core i7.
The temperature may drastically rise when playing games.
