Follow up: Here is a plot of the Intel Xeon E3-1505m v5 Temperature vs. CPU usage, logged over about 10 minutes while the CPU usage ranged between 0% and 60%.
For CPU usage between 0 and 10%, the temperature is in the range of 40 Deg C to 80 Degree C.
Any CPU usage over 13% and the temperature pegs at 95-100 Deg C.
This can't be correct?
Here is the same data plotted vs Time:

Thank you for joining the community.
For the information you are providing in the post, we see that the processor is not doing any hard workload while using the use if the system. it seems to be a problem related to the cooling system, that in this case is provided the manufacturer HP, we recommend to contact HP support for assistance on that matter.
Can you tell me why the temperature is linearly related to processor usage when the usage is between 0 and 13%, then instantly jumps up to 100 deg C when the usage goes over 13%? This doesn't make sense to me. The temperature should ramp up in a manner related to the CPU usage until it reaches some maximum. And why doesn't the temperature exceed 100 deg C? The Fan and cooling system is fully on when the processor is at 50% and the temperature is listed as 100 deg C, surely the temperature would be exceeding 100 deg C at 100% CPU?
All signs point to an incorrect temperature output from the processor in my opinion. I have seen several other posts regarding the Intel Xeon E3-1505M v5 processor and temperatures that don't make sense. I think Intel should open an investigation into the validity of the temperature outputs of these processors.
