Your CPU's running pretty hot there. You should've bought your cooling pad with you

Do you know the brand and model of your laptop?

I consider that a fairly nominal range for a laptop. 84C is a little high, but is not necessarily in the danger zone. However, you should take a double torture test test of Furmark + Prime95 and see where the temps go.

for a second gen Intel SB CPU I think it's high id expect the GPU to be hotter, http://ark.intel.com/products/53469/...ache-2_20-GHz0

TjMax is 100c for that CPU @ that point the cpu will throttle.. Sorry had a bit of a power nap before..

It is high, seems like either your sensors are wrong or there might be a fault with your cpu cooler.

here are the results after running those two programs

note: the GPY temps and CPU are in the same spots

As mentioned above Intel lists the Tjunction of the i7 2670qm as 100C.
You have plenty of room to spare.

If you torture any system like that and still fall within range you are in good shape. No game will put anywhere near that kind of load on it.

Dang, that is actually pretty hot. While in practice, you won't be reaching these temps very often, I would strongly suggest making sure your heat sink is completely clear of dust, and if you can get to it easily, you may even want to consider changing out the thermal grease on the cpu/gpu.

The reason I suggested the dual Prime95 and Furmark test is to put a load on both the GPU and CPU to find out if the laptop can withstand putting out it's absolute maximum. This Asus seems to be pretty close to the 100C mark, so you may want to use additional cooling measures while gaming long term.

For some reference, my own laptop maxes out at 82C for the CPU and 68C for the GPU under the dual torture test, though I'm using a dual core i5 and an overclocked Mobility Radeon 5470, both of which pale compared to a quad core and a GT 540M.

Depends on the design. Some have a direct panel to the heatsink and processor/gpu, others are a total pain in the rear.

To me, 95C seems pretty high, but it will be seldom you ever reach near that temp under normal gaming loads. What I suggested for cooling is just that, a suggestion. As long as you don't hit 100C in a game, you should be fine.

tl'dr, don't worry about it too much. Decently built Laptops should at least be able to withstand such a torture test without throttling down.
