    i5-2430M Operating temperature



      I was wondering how hot my CPU should be operating. on idle it is usually around 55-60 degrees Celsius with the max processor usage at 100 percent. When I'm using mid-level intensity games, the temperature could spike up from anywhere Between 60-87 Celsius with the maximum processor usage set to 95%, so the turbo boost does not create more heat. The fans however hardly appear to be at full RPM, so the computer runs relatively hot and too hot for my liking sometimes. I was wondering if this is normal for this particular CPU and ways I can reduce the heat, other than getting a cooling fan, etc. The temp will fall very quickly back to operating temperature in a matter of ten or so seconds.
