Concerns about laptop temperature

Howdy.

My laptop averages about 70-90 celsius whilst gaming. One second it is 70 other it is 85 other it is 90. 

should I be concerned?

note: i own a laptop

Laptops don't have good cooling due to space limitations. You probably hear the fan(s) spinning up. they are OK for short bursts of power, but for endured gaming, they get hot. I'm sure some manufacturers are better than others, but this an inherent problem. 

 

Check if it is dusty and clean. And check if the fan works. Make sure air flow is not blocked. Other than that, this is how it is designed.

 

The CPU/GPU will throttle based on temperature. While that costs performance, it will protect the hardware. 

 

IIRC there was a case where a manufacturer was sued for burning (or just hot) laps when people had it on the lap.

So my laptop shouldn't really have an issue at 80-90c

Desktops don't really have issues at those temps either, its just not ideal. 

 

What laptop do you have?

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

 

Don't dilute <good thing> by always trying to focus on, and drag conversation back to, <bad thing>.

Lenovo Y530. So it’s perfectly fine to play at those temps?

yep, that's about where i'd expect that laptop to be. no need to worry too much about it
