My CPU Temperature with PCSX2.
#1
Hi everbody! I was playing Silent Hill Origins (Software Mode) and I recently installed MSI Afterburner to see my benchmarks.

I am a little concerned because  my CPU has 70C with 60% usage on average.

Is this bad? I have low settings (I found them on YouTube). I only put 2X with some games.

These are my specs:

Asus X411U Laptop (I bought it one year ago)
CPU Intel Core i5-8250U 1.6 Ghz 8th generation.
RAM 8GB
Graphic Nvidia Geforce MX130
Windows 10 64bit

I played Tales of the Abyss (Hardware mode, 2X) without MSI Afterburner and I think it was the same story. And when I don't play games the temperature of mi CPU is 50C in average.

I put a screenshot of Silent Hill Origins.

What do you think? Thanks!

70C is fine, so don't worry about it.

Thanks for your answer.

Are you sure? Because I was seeing so many post about it (some on this page) and some people considered that CPU around 70C is bad, because it could shorten the life of my laptop.

I would like to reduce the temperatue around 60C. It's possible? What I can do?

I had a screenshot of Shadow Hearts 2X (70C-80C)

Thanks!

i reach 80-85 when encoding videos.
when playing pcsx2, never goes over 70C.

removing dust from your fan could be a good start.

that said, getting 50C when not doing anything intensive is definitely high

Hi. Thanks for your answer.

I bought for my Laptop one year ago. When I am only using Google Chrome the CPU runs beetwen 45C-55C. I don't think it could be dust. I have my laptop in a clean place

I uploaded a screenshot from MSI Afterburner.

when did you last clean your laptop from dust ?

when i see that "max : 94°C", it's clearly freaking me out.

-I had never cleaned my laptop inside. I bought it new. Is it time to clean it?

-This 94C was a small moment when I tried Shadow Hearts 3X.

Could it be a bad configuration of my PC? A problem with the coolers? Maybe these should work faster.

I see. You' re kind of a beginner.

Yes after a year, it's time to clean the fans. Dust will come in faster than you can imagine and can easily make your CPU heat up
It could be problem with the coolers, but they most of time work/don't work. It's not a "half working" component.

Start by cleaning and see if it improves things

I use a laptop cooler and it works great, it's aluminium one with 4 fans, also you could try to undervolt the cpu to lower the temps.

How much you can undervolt depends on the cpu but I dropped mine by about 10 degress without losing any performance.

Actually 50C for a laptop that isnt doing anything intensive is not that bad, not ideal either but its decent.
