Hi everyone!

I've had a MSI GS63VR 6RF now for about 7 months. For whatever reason it crapped out and I sent it to MSI RMA and now stuff runs fine. Games don't stutter unless I'm intentionally trying to max out or overmax game settings and it doesn't get so hot that I can barely touch it anymore when I'm using GIMP. But I figured it crapped out because of the heat (it's a common problem in reviews) so I bought a cooling pad. A Thermaltake Massive TM to be specific, because it seemed to win the most awards in that field.

Anyway the cooling pad has a LED display and on "turbo" it says usually 28-30oC when it's on, maybe getting up to 35 when it's playing a game. With "turbo" off add a few degrees. But I opened my little thermometer (I use SpeedFan) it said the CPU was running at around 90oC and the GPU around 70. Now I'm not expecting a cooling pad to necessarily cool it to my human level of comfort or anything but is 90+ oC (basically 200 oF) a healthy level? Especially for long-term use and gaming? My specs are here, and besides a few updates to Windows and my NVIDIA which haven't affected performance or anything, it's factory-fresh:

So.. A.) Ease my mind. Tell me that those temperatures are normal. I'd like to believe this is true, but I've seen temperature ranges all over the map from MSI users, to a much lower to much higher average than my own, so I figured it couldn't hurt.

And..

B.) Did I buy a dud "Cooling Pad"? Like I said, I like the fact that it displays the temperature, which is currently 29oC, but my SpeedFan app is staring at me and showing "38oC." And if it goes up at all when I game, it CERTAINLY isn't by the 50+ degrees reflected again by Speedfan. Obviously an external thermometer isn't going to give me the exact same reading as an internal one, but 10 degrees on average disparity? If that's the case they should just give you little plastic letters to tape over it, or write in bold ADD TEN DEGREES TO DISPLAY VALUE... I dunno.

And finally, to test I played Shadow of Mordor with the HD texture pack running on Ultra in HDR at 4K. The machine plays fine, 60FPS with 40 orcs surrounding me no problem. But as cool as that is, the thought that this could be my last time because my computer's about to blow up isn't the ideal attitude. I also have MSI's DragonCenter app turned to "Cooler Boost", made "active" cooling in my ctrl panel's power settings, AND have SpeedFan turned to "Automatic Fan Speed."

I appreciate in advance any advice. This is my first gaming PC since the late 90s and I want to make sure I'm taking the best measures to keep it safe and cool and whatnot. Cheers :)
 
90 is way high for the temp. Unless you are maxing out the devices resources, the inside of the device is full of dust and debris, or there is a defective/dying part inside, you should not get those temps. Especially not on a device that is that new. I would suggest contacting the manufacturer again as it should not be giving you that kind of problem.

Yeah that was my temp with the resources basically maxed (if Shadow of Mordor on Ultra is considered maxed, it's definitely probably the most resource-heavy program I have) . As I type this now, I'm looking at GPU: 36C, HD0:37C, HD1: 31C, Temp1: 37C, Temp2: 28C, Temp3: 30C, Core: 34C, Core1:35C.

Thanks guys! Yeah I keep an eye on it, but as a Samsung customer I've been a little more on edge about the safe heat of electronics in general, but it's good to know that these temps don't sound too risky.
 
Being a very small and thin laptop, it's gonna run hot under heavy load, and the warmer it runs, the sooner something is likely to fail.

As for the temp sensors of your cooling pad, I'm assuming it is just measuring the temps on the underside of the laptop, which has nothing to do with the actual temps (number-wise) the GPU and CPU are running at. Sounds like more of a gimmick than anything. Unless the sensors automatically adjust the fan speed of the cooling pad to compensate for the detection of higher temps.

The cooling pad measures the (cool) intake air that is being forced into the computer, whereas the sensor app within the computer measures the chip itself.
