Too hot?

My laptop can reach about 100 C in both cpu and gpu, is this normal for my laptop?

I have the latest DOX release.

For your GPU, this is quite hot. For your CPU, it is incredibly dangerously hot. You should check to make sure your fan is working and there is not a large amount of dust inside the laptop. What laptop do you have?

Yea I thought it was hot, I think it might be the video card driver, I'm not sure though....

Roll back to some of the cooler drivers. You can find those throughout the forum.

As someone said before you should check the fan and use compressed air to clean the dust of it

since the drivers cant make a difference of over 20°.

Do you remember the temps you had before you reached the 100°?

And could you post the idle/work temperatures before and now.

Probably you have the same or similar problem that I had. I have a HP dv6000 motherboard faulty series that have a bad cooling project.

In laptop, gpu could reach easily 94 celcius. Basicaly, if you look inside, over the gpu and cpu have a metal part that touches both gpu and cpu chips. It is connected to the system fan.

When fan is on, drops the temperature of this metal, and the cpu and gpu temps.

Between this metal (Heat spreder or something), there is or a thermal paste or a thermal compound. In my computer, had a thermal compound, it is like a thin piece of rubber over the gpu, and NOTHING :) :P :unsure: , over the CPU.

So I had to buy an Arctic silver 5 thermal paste to cpu and gpu.

I replaced the crapy thermal rubber by a thin cooper shim,about 1.2mm x 12mm x12mm.

CPU temps dropped to 50celcius, gpu temps to77 celcius (182.05 dox drivers) on high performance, fullload.

I had to do it,because I bought this laptop in US, but I live in Brazil, HP does not cover it under waranty outside US :) .

Of course, if your laptop is under warranty, send it to be repairad ASAP. :w00t:

I hope it helps

I actually started seeing my temps a while after I started using dox drivers, it was usually max 95s, now with the latest one its about 103s max in high performance mode, although when I use balance mode it goes about 15 degrees lower, maybe a bit more....

I will check more on that chupacabra, thanks for the hint...

EDIT:With balance mode it actually goes to around 75-80s C degrees
