Anyway, I have had those shutdowns...and thats bad...so I installed Notebook Hardware Control to see whats the temperature like...I set all to max as usually and checked my CPU temp, it was 91 C...gosh...
I think this is not normal, even the CPU is fully loaded.
Therefore I would like to ask MrMsyvc and other guys, what do you think about that? Could it be the dust in the fan? I have some EXP that dust in the fun makes troubles,e.g. CPU temp fell to regular values after I cleaned my P4 desktop CPU cooler.
I dont know....its even a winter so it should be easier for PC to keep cooler and I have played many games(FEAR,WOW)...and havent had such a problem. Do you think that something might have gone wrong with the laptop?
Also, now I see that my CPU temperature is 60C and just surfing the web...and have more windows opened.
I hope I'll get some help here.
Mine runs at 47C normal operation, with periodic spikes to 54-56C for some unknown utility. I game consistently, all games, at 70-72C. Maybe 6 months ago I ONCE hit 80C when I was fiddling with something (?), but it never happened again. I personally run RMClock as I've found NHC too performance-intensive. I haven't played Matrix Online but I've run COD2, WoW, HL2 and quite a few others satisfactorily, all at the same 70-72C. FEAR ran poorly for me but everything else runs fine. If I have performance problems I shut off unnecessary programs and threads in Task Manager, such as Touchpad, Soundman, ATI progs, sometimes antivirus and wireless if I'm not online. Good luck.
