Hello everyone and welcome to another laptop
tech tips video.Today I am going to talk about what temperatures are safe for your laptop’s
CPU,GPU and other parts. As you know high temperatures can damage your
laptop CPU and other parts.So it is really important to take a note of how hot things
are running and what are the safe temperatures.Also you should know that laptops are built to
run hotter compared to desktops. Lets start with processor or CPU.According
to Intel’s website most 4th gen Mobile Intel CPUs can run smoothly without a problem up
to 100 degree celcius.Anything more than that and the CPU will shut itself down.But you
shouldn’t be looking to run your Intel CPU that hot.It will decrease the lifetime of
your CPU and might damage it. For safe use and preserving the lifetime of
your CPU you should try to keep the temperature of your CPU around or below 90 degree celcius.Yes
as high as 90 for maximum load.Laptop CPUs are meant to run much hotter compared to desktops.For
AMD CPUs you should be running it around or below 80 degree celcius.Anything more than
that and you will be decreasing the lifetime of your CPU or might burn it. Now lets talk about GPU.As far as recent generation
mobile GPUs are concerned,they can run way hotter compared to desktop GPUs.You will be
fine running an AMD or Nvidia GPU from somewhere between 80-90 degree celcius during intense
gaming.Anything more than that would be too much and you can damage your graphics card. For hard drives the temperature should be
around 55-60 degree celcius.Temperatures more than that and the hard drive could fail faster
or make more errors. So to keep your laptop parts safe try to keep
them within these limits and you will be just fine.Remember the temperatures shown here
are the maximum temperatures at which you should be safe.Higher temperatures than this
will decrease the lifetime of your hardwares and might burn your system.

    Is gaming at a GPU temperature of 92c during gaming damaging towards a gtx 850m. It only reaches these temps at full load

    I'm running Boinc distributed computing on my laptop overnight as the cpus will be mostly ideal while downloading. The cpu and motherboard Temps reach upto 80c. Is it safe to use it in such Temps for long periods of time? FYI I use a cooling pad too.

    Hi,
    I have a GIGABYTE P34W with i7 4720HQ and GTX970M i use a cooling pad and changed the thermal paste of GPU and CPU with Arctic Silver.
    when i play games (star wars Battlefront, BF4 etc) my CPU hits 92-95C and thermal throttles a lot.
    GPU doesn't go above 80C.

    is this safe? will this condition shorten my laptops life??
    do you suggest when i game on this system to underclockundervolt the CPU?(even if i lose performance?)

    Hello! Thanks for your video! I'm kinda worried lately for my laptop and the temperatures during gaming. It seems they are fine for now, but I still wanna receive your answer. I'm using SpeedFan for revealing the temperatures. In my heaviest hours of gaming, my CPU (Intel) ( I guess it is the CPU, SpeedFan shows it as Core 1, Core 2, Core 3 and Core 4 ) the temps are between 67 and 71 C. The highest temperature on SpeedFan reaches 80-82, which probably is the GPU ( Intel Graphics, Rogue, integrated ) ( SpeedFan shows it simply as "Temp2" ). The HDD is always around 33-40. Is it safe enough? Is there a risk at this moment for the GPU?

    Hi, im using a msi laptop with GTX950M, intelcore i5 4210H up to 3.5 GHz and 8GB of ram. Sometimes the temperature can hit 87 °C, is this safe or should i reduce my processor's power / upgrade my laptop cooler ? (im using a little laptop cooler, around 1000 rpm)

    GF GTX 950M, i7-4720HQ 2.6GHz
    GPU is around 80c-90c on max load, cpu is getting somewhere about 90c for a longest time(sometimes up to 95c)
    Is that okey or should i buy extended cooler?

    My gpu temps are at 50 degrees while playing games,it never cross 50-55 degrees but my cpu temps always goes up to 85-87 degrees and stuck there. It doesn't go up nor comes down. Is there any problem with my CPU?

    i have a envy dv6, and when am doing some rendering, i have som strange fluctuation in my core temperature it goes from 80-85 and then jump to 100-104 for a second then come back to 80-85, i change the thermal paste but, it still does the same, sometime my pc just shot off by its self…..is there a thermostate some where that i can change to know if the feedback for the temperature is good ?

    Nice video informative 🙂 so basically you are saying that the safe temperature starts like 10 *C under the manufacturer's TJUNCTION temperature right? Like i got i5 7200u that runs at 80-90 *C at games like Watch dogs 2 , Battlefront, it should be good right?

    Undervolting my i7 7700HQ CPU with Intel XTU extreme tuning utility by 0.0150V [each individual processor will have it's own minimum] was stable and dropped temps by 14 degrees C in stress testing with 100% GPU usage. I recommend it because if your processor is not overclocked, it is probably being force fed more power than it can use and that power can only be expressed as waste heat.
