Hello I just recently bought a new i5 laptop actually only days ago. After Googling the model I found that there are some overheating problems. So I would just like the know the normal operating temp range for let say surfing the web I'm not sure if mine is running to hot or if this is normal for a mobile processor. I know the maximum temperature is 105c but I just want to know the normal range and max under a load. Thanks looking forward to the support this is my first Intel and if all goes well I might become a convert.
Hello thank you for your reply, still having problems with the computer NOT the processor which I love. I understand that as long as the temp stays below 105c that the CPU will not be damaged but what would the normal range be if you were say in a room 75F and with just a few web pages open certainly wouldn't expect a temperature of 100c so what would you thing a normal range would be in a properly functioning computer. Thanks
Currently Intel does not have an average temperature for each processor, since the temperature can vary from system to system.
I can tell you only that as long as the processor does not reaches 105 degrees Celsius, it will be running under thermal specifications. My recommendation in this case is to install the latest BIOS version for your laptop system and any available update for your operating system and any running software.
I'm somewhat disappointed in Intel's response to my question.l I understand the maximum temperature operating range but I believe you know the normal temp range for example a laptop running at 104 I wouldn't assume would be normal. I might have to reassess my decision to buy further Intel products. I asked a similar question a while back to AMD which is what I used previously and received an answer.
