Are these temperatures considered normal?

Posted 30 January 2013 - 09:23 AM

Hay all.

I'm just wondering, since this laptop is coming up 2 years old now and I'm expecting some kind of degradation, whether the temperature readings I get would be considered normal. Laptop is a G53Jw, temperatures listed are in bounds (low/high) - low bound is a cold room, high bound is in a hot room (should I be noticing a difference?). CPU is an i7-740QM, GPU is a GTX460m with 1.5GB GDDR5

ACPI-THRM - Idle: 45c/55c
Load: 65c/75c
Gaming: 80c/85c
CPU - Idle: 45c/55c
Load: 70c/75c
Gaming: 82c (it never seems to matter)
GPU - Idle: 50c/55c
Load: 70c
Gaming: 80c/85c

HDD always stays a solid 35c to 45c (WD Caviar Blue, 640GB), and my SSD doesn't appear to be registering any readings (OCZ Agility Plus R2, 120GB)

Anyone have any insight? Should I be looking at having anything done at this point?

[Note] It's worth stating that a small load - browsing and spotify - registers a CPU and GPU temp of about 55c ish.

I don't see anything here that I would be alarmed about. Temps in laptops are often higher than the average temps in desktops because most laptops have terrible air flow due to packing so much into such a small space that there's just no room for things that make better air flow without increasing the overall size of the laptop. If you ever see any of those hit over 90c, then you need to do a serious cleaning out on the laptop to get rid of any and all dust that might have accumulated inside it.
