Hello,

I have an Asus Rog, see link for specs, and I noticed the temperatures are kinda high. I use Speccy to monitor the temperatures.

During a simple game of Pillars of Eternity for example, the CPU temperature goes up to 80 Celsius and the mother board can go up to 88. the graphics card and the hard drives seem to hold on, GPU in high 60- low 70 and hard drives in 30-40s.
Should I stop playing and get a diagnostic or is this normal for hard core gaming laptops?
I have a cheap USB octopus cooling pad that I am using.

Thank you

As far as a laptop goes those temps are still acceptable but I would only see that level of temps under full load. Unplug the external cooling and try again. If temps are even worse it's worth talking to Asus to RMA that laptop and get a new one.
