MSI X370 notebook E-450 high temperature

Hello i need an advice.
This notebook warranty expired long time ago, but it was bought from second hand. I repasted apu chip with Thermal Gryzzly Kryonaut and got rid of dust on fan. Didnt check how was with temperatures before. As a Core Temp program notices, that under load (movie through hdmi on 40" TV) this processor with integrated graphics reaches up to 75 degrees. Watching on internal display its about 72-73. Both 480p... Is that normal or i have to worry about? I know that cooling system in this notebook is weak, but as hard?


Operating system Windows 8.1 working on Windows 8 VGA drivers, all drivers from MSI official site. In correct chronology like is written.

What can i do to lower the temperature on this notebook? Im a little bit paranoic if we are talking about temperatures in laptops, notebooks, so please forgive me if i sound like crazy Happy

With regards,

Wojciech Żurański

That's getting into the warning zone for sure

Are you sure the fan is running? Does this one have the heat tube that also runs over to the GPU? Did you replace thermal paste under it also?

I'm going to write typical for laptop temps.

I think a lot of folk think of the desktop temps when they warn you about that temp.

E450

Spec shows max temp of 90c.

I suppose you could try a cooling pad and see what effect that has.
