So I've had my 8790 for about 8 months now, and I've always assumed that my temperatures have been normal, but recently I read a post with a concerned writer complaining his temperature "actually went ABOVE 60C" when gaming...My computer will idle anywhere from 40-50C when doing regular work and during gaming will usually rise to 60-63, and can get as hot as 65 (66C tops)...I also made the mistake of falling asleep with the computer on and the screen closed, and when I woke up, I found the computer idle at 70C. ..I sort of panicked, turned on the turbo fan and blew as hard as I could on it until I passed out. I would like to know if this is normal, or if my computer is unusually hot... anyone?
