i7 740QM Temperature

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Forum, i just recently purchased a brand new G53-JW A-1, i took it completly apart, repasted the cpu TIM, and rewired everything in the laptop. Yestoday, while i was stressing the laptop, i noticed CPU throttleing, it seems the laptop engage thermal throttle once the CPU reach 85C, is this normal for the laptop? and by a side note, the laptop only seems to engage throttle if the room temperature is above 20C.

Well I will resurrect this thread from a 4 month death.

I also have the 740QM and it does throttle down at 85C+.

I haven't opened my lappy yet to reapply TIM, but I'm sure it won't make that much of a difference. I fold with it and I get 6.5k ppd from the CPU, but if I fold along side the 425M the CPU throttles down and only receives 2k ppd. So really its not worth all the extra heat, so I just fold SMP.
