Unlike desktops with big space and big heat sinks, 70C is not abnormal. You also see an entry level GPU in there.
I can only add that many figure out that laptops for games is going to be tough for a few more years until the machine advance just a little more.
My Laptop was performing excellently with 3D Games until recently after which i am facing problems with several games..
-Annoyingly low Frame rate.
-High CPU Temperatures reaching up to 70 C.(Measured with Speccy).
Dell Inspiron 1564
Intel i5 450-M
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5450. 1GB capacity.
4 GB Ram.
Games released recently like NFS Run were performing optimally in my system lately, But now even Older games like Assasin's Creed Brotherhood are having this framing issues and causing high CPU Temperatures.
As far as i know i think i messed up with the settings in Catalyst control center but however after resetting it the problem still persists, And i also suspect conflict between the processor's built in card and Dedicated card, or it could be my Graphic card failing.
I plan of Resetting my system completely but it is a long process and i would like to know if any of you have a better and faster solution..?
