salzrat Posted September 27, 2006 Report Share Posted September 27, 2006 Hi, I'm still using my four year old laptop, but one thing that's been annoying me for some time is the heat produced by the cpu, or rather the resulting fan noise. My fans usually keep turning at 7000rpm, keeping the CPU at about 53-55 celsius, and the gpu at 60-61 celsius in idle mode. Room temperature is maybe 24 celsius. Dust was were recently blown out with canned air. When upgrading to a P4-M 2.6GHz, I removed the thin foil and applied AS5 by the book. I had to put some alu part on top of the heatsink to increase the pressure with which the heatsink is on the CPU, because otherwise I could move the heatsink assembly very easily. Still, the fans keep spinning, and the temperature doesn't drop further. I don't know whether it's because of the 2.6GHz cpu (although in idle, the power dissipation is supposed to be comparable to the previoius 2.0GHz I had), or to the Quadro 700Gogl I put in there - maybe the thermal pad on the gpu doesn't make good contact with the keyboard. I do know it's annoying. What kind of temperatures are you other 8200/C840 owners seeing, and do you have any suggestions? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
