After playing Metro 2033 for a bit on my new (2 day old) G550JK, I felt the laptop get a bit warm and decided to pull out Speccy and check the temperatures. My GPU was around 65C which seems good. However, my motherboard and CPU were much higher. The motherboard was 80C+ and the CPU was only a few degrees cooler. Anybody else experiencing temperatures like this or is this high? The motherboard temperatures especially seems high. I forgot to take a screenshot of the temperatures, but I will next time I play and show what its getting.

When you minimise your game, your temperatures will rapidly cool. If you want a proper reading you can open the temperature icon (green square) and see the highest peak in the graph. Or download "Open Hardware Monitor" which will tell you the max temp it reached in numbers. C or F depending on setting you chose.

I believe the motherboard temp probe is near the CPU somewhere, since mine too has similar temperatures to the CPU itself. After all, the CPU is soldered directly onto the board itself.

80 seems alright for a game, I wouldn't be comfortable with 85+ though. 90 Is a big no.

the gtx260m peaks out at 105C. after that it throttles. any of them that do run that hot, don't for very long.

usually mine runs at about 85C or so in a game, but i modified it quite a bit.

i'd be leery of a board getting that hot, especially with a soldered cpu.

I just think the probe for the board is close to the CPU's. Since my board temps are the same as the CPU too.. sometimes 1*C higher.

The temperature on your laptop is fine. My G550JK (3 weeks old) is experiencing the same temperature. When you plug in to play games, the power option automatically switches to power4gear high performance and push the CPU speed to the max (~3.4ghz), this makes the game run very smooth (stable fps) but your CPU will get hot. I recommend you to change the power option to balanced (when gaming). I use balanced option and set the maximum CPU speed to 95% (~2.3ghz) and it gets a lot cooler when playing games (around 70C) however you may see a slightly worse fps due to the lower CPU speed.

I'll try that. I'll let you know what happens.

Yeah, balanced does run cooler. It is much closer to 70C now. That's better. I don't really notice too much of a difference in FPS while playing Metro 2033. That might be because Metro 2033 isn't that new anymore though.
