Hi guys, i have a 2 week old Asus K45DR. All is running well with the lappy however when i downloaded Speccy to monitor the tempratures i got a little worried as i saw my CPU temp averaging 95 degrees when i was running a game in the background. Its a old game Silkroad online that is not really graphic intensive so what gives? Those temps are when i am tabbed out of the game, when i tab back in the CPU temp can hit 105.

I have no other apps running at the same time and the air vents are completely unblocked. The motherboard and graphics are averaging at 45 degrees. Did some googling but all i can see is people saying to use a cooling pad. Could anyone please advise what my next course of action should be?

I tried restarting the laptop, this time with not even the game running. The CPU temp still runs 95 degrees.

Are there certain settings i should be tweaking via the Engine Vision Control Centre? I basically have not touched any of the settings on the lappy since geting it.

Here are screengrabs from both Speccy and HWMonitor

EDIT: both screen grabs were taken at seperate times. Now as i open both programmes they are showing me the exact same temps for all components.

Is there any way to confirm that other than pulling the laptop apart?

Will give that a try, However having said that is there a possibility that the heatsink was not properly placed and caused this?
