  • safe temps for dell N5010?

    Hello i have been playing around on my dell inspiron r15 on sants row3 and othergames.


    my worry is i have seen temps getting upto (82c on the cpu 10min play) and 5650m (83 10min play) is this safe?


    i am using the rubbish targus chill mat too help cool.




    thanks you for your time

    Hmmm they are a tad on the high end, they are not unsafe by any means, just very close to the auto-off limits. Is that with or without the charger plugged in?

          Tbh that's not too bad for a laptop, temp limits are usually higher on them anyway.

          I regularly sit at 80ish while gaming for a few hours.

              That's fine. I've done video rendering on my laptop, managed to pass the 100c mark! It's at that point you get worried!

                I think you only need to get worried if the laptop begins to auto-shutdown. If it does start to do that something is wrong as its exceeded the manufacturers desired safe limit. If as with yours its running as normal dell have decided its within the safe zone for the laptop so you should be fine

                    Ignore coretemp. 90 is too high for a desktop, but laptops can go over 115 degrees for ages.

                        Its more that if it goes over the 90 degrees it will auto-shutdown, which obviously is a pain in the ***

                          Buy a notebook cooler if you are using it for sustained periods of time.
