My laptop CPU is heating up to 80c+
I checked with both Real Temp and Coretemp
I used both because I didn't trust Coretemp...
It was saying my CPU's bus speed was 998
(Which would put my little Core Duo running at 11-12Ghz)
Needless to say I immediately ran CPU-Z thinking
"zomg maybe world record due to freak accident?"
but was disappointed
So I ran Real temp and yep... My temps are coming back 80c+ on both.
What should I do?
I'm thinking of popping her open and reapplying some thermal paste/grease to the CPU.
Possibly buying a new laptop fan.
Can you guys recommend me a laptop fan? Or show me where I can buy one?
I think it's between 15mm and 40mm not sure exactly, I gotta measure it.
The laptop is a Thinkpad T60 with a T2500 CPU.
I've been having problems lately and I think they are heat related.
Anyone have any helpful input?
