    i have this program on my laptop called SIW, System Information for Windows 1.67.

    I don't really know the info it provides but it says:


    Property Value

    Temperature
    CPU Core 0 52C (126F)

    It was higher than that before but is 126+ degrees bad for the laptop or normal? The vent is right by the mouse so my palms always gets sweaty from this.

    I would think that 126F @ the CPU core for a laptop is alright, granted that is is up and has been running for a while.

    You don't want it reaching over 60C-65C period. If you can get a ventulation base for the laptop you could decrease it's temp down to 45C no problem.

    alot of bios have a feature that shuts your pc down if it gets too hot, so you shouldnt have to worry about it. Check the temperature after you do alot of intense processing, that will give you a better idea of how hot it will get.

    126F is fine. Don't worry about it.

    It's not fine, it causes hard drive crashes. At temperatures from 104-122°F (40-50°С) you double the chance of a hard drive crash. So a sudden reboot is the cause of it. Get a good base cooling station from like CoolMasters and bring er down, and those temp's I'm talkin about are the cpu not the overall system.

    Yeah, well it's not the HDD temp, it's the CPU temp.

    Good laptops are built so that the HDD is as far away from the CPU as possible. My Averatec constantly ran at 55C CPU temp and it never had a problem.

    Also, pretty much all recent HDD's have S.M.A.R.T. monitoring. Get SpeedFan and use it to read the S.M.A.R.T. data from your drive, it'll tell you how hot the drive is. You can check the overall health of the drive with SpeedFan too.
