Hello,
I got an HP Envy 15, I've been using it mostly to browse,videocalls and light gaming.
I checked the temperatures with HWmonitor, CoreTemp and RealTemp,
and I noticed the temperatures are kinda hot:

Idle: 39-45C°
Browsing & video calls: 45-50C°
Gaming: 60C°-82C° (Depends on the game, some make it avg 70s others stay in 60s)

I am not sure if those temps are normal or if they are hot for this kind of CPU. Other things that worry me is the way the temps change, they seem pretty quick, like from 50 to 60 in a second, is that a bad reading or really works like that? I do have a cooling pad and help but doesn't make such a big difference. So, it would be really helpful if someone could give me some advices or tell me if this is normal.

Thank you very much.

Specs:
Intel® Core™ i7-4700MQ (2,4 GHz, 6 MB de caché L3)
DDR3 de 12 GB
NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M


CPU: i7 4700mq
GPU: Nvidia gt740m

That's perfectly normal.

If it jumps from 50 to 60 in a second then that means the temp is rising fast, but as long as it stays below 85-90 that's all in the normal range. Without a cooling pad mine maxes at 85 C while gaming (DOTA2).

Hey those temps seem normal.
Also I would like to ask you how has this laptop been with you? Im planning to get the exact same one as well with 12GB ram.
Can I have your opinion on it?
Thanks!
