Hi.

I recently (a week ago) bought this new laptop, for reference: http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/proteusII-15/

I am having a very strange problem where both CoreTemp and HWMonitor give me close to 100 degree Celsius readings on my cores as you can see here:

The strange thing is that my laptop doesn't even feel hot. Whilst playing games e.g. GTA V the under-surface of the laptop is completely cool. At best I get 'warm' air coming out of the exhaust in the back of the laptop, but aside from that, nothing to warrant these absurdly high temperature readings.

Theres other stuff like 99% GPU utilization which you can see in the puush screen which i'm not sure the meaning of.


Should I be worried or am I just getting false readings? It's a brand new laptop and I can barely feel any heat at all. In comparison to my old acer laptop where the under-surface got extremely hot even at 80-85 degrees celsius.


Thanks.
