Recently I started gaming on my laptop and I'm noticing the CPU temperature, going through the roof basically. I started monitoring the CPU's usage and temperature while playing the game using Task manager and Open Hardware Monitor which tell me the temperature goes up to but doesn't exceed 84°C while the usage usually sits anywhere below 45%. Usually before I enter the game have every application possible closed down and even my network connections while I play.
I am just wondering if this is normal? I've been monitoring regular usage since as well and its usually between 55°C-70°C . According to the spec of mine off of CPU-World the maximum temperature for my own CPU is around 105°C.
I'm planning on getting some form of cooling pad soon anyway, but im just wondering would that even help, or should I just stop playing altogether because as I understand it that keeping the temperature that high for so long can be pretty bad news.
Anyway any input would be appreciated.Thanks.
Sorry if this is similar to other questions, but I figured in these cases the details count and id rather not melt my laptop from the inside out.
