i7 overheating problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
k, since i got my new laptop with i7 940 cpu, i've tired playing games, and i have my setting to the lowest but my cpu spikes the temp to 70 degrees Celsius, and i was wondering if this temp is safe? and is there a way to turn off turbo boost? because the cpu cranks it self up to 2.93-1.95ghz from 931ghz when im in game, which gets the cpu hot, i've tired to turn it off in the bios but could't find how.
note: i've havn't oc the cpu or tweek any settings.

here's a link just in case the pic doesn't work here:

those chips are safe up to 90c at least. So if it stays under like 80c then you are good.
