Y500 Overheating?


Recommended Posts

If you are hitting those temperatures  you should better dismantle, clean the thermal radiator block, especially the  grid, clean the fan, properly re-paste gpu-cpu and dismantle back. No cooling pad will help cooking chips inside if your cooling system is clogged or mis-aligned.


IMO overalll dismantle-cleaning of a notebook at least /year is a must for longevitiy and stability. Better to do a maint & be safe than being sorry. ;)

I recently dismantled mine, repasted it but it didn't help much with the temps. GTAV was hitting 95 on CPU. 
3DMark 11 got me to 84C on GPU.


People keep saying that's all normal and laptops are warm by default, but then again, their temps are much lower than mine. :/

Maybe I should blow it out nicely or invest in cooling pad.
