Wow. I am quite jealous. The coolest I've ever seen mine is 49. With normal usage, it runs consistently at 58-59 at 16x (max performance) or 52-53 at 6x (using speed stepping). Hmm...maybe if I pour AS5 down every orifice I can shave off another degree!!! (or completely destroy my computer...)
I just sometimes use dynamic switching and sometimes I don't. Right click on the flag icon for CHC and you'll see those options. Since I'm plugged in there's no reason not to use max performance, but I like to see those temps get down at 6x so when I'll sometimes put it on the dynamic switching settings.
I've managed to get my normal usage 6x temp down to 46/47 C. How? Lifted up the laptop to improve ventilation underneath. That's where most of the heat goes. Seems to run a bit quieter, too. Right now I have 4 CD cases, one on each corner (lol) but some sort of lifting is definitely going to be part of my permanent setup once I get to school on Monday.
Nice, looking forward to it. It is good that notebookreview.com has one of its own review on it and you are providing it with its first z70va review. Besides that, you also get some cash for your review.
Generally speaking with my current setup I get low 40s until I do something CPU intensive, at that point I get up in the 50s and won't get back down into the 40s until I reboot. HD always does a steady climb up to about 50 where it levels off. Wonder if there's some way I can halt that.
Hmmm...HD just went up to 29 and right at that moment some fan-sounding thing kicked in. Does that make sense?
wow.... I guess Turions runs cooler than PM's cause my Ferrari runs at 36-38 while surfing, office'ing', listen to internet radio, etc... AND it's not undervolted. However, while gaming it goes as far as 75, 80 sometimes, but never higher.
