Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Is it true that the AMD processors produce much more heat than their INTEL counterparts???
i have a HP Pavilion dv 5 1106 ax notebook with an AMD TURION X2 RM-70 processor inside.
i recently downloaded this software SPEEDFAN to keep a check on my notebook temp.
i was surprised to see the temp hovering around the 80 C and the 90 C.(a max of 94 C when i was playing a game,playing music,browsing simultaneously).
even while i was just writing this to you...........temp was in the early 80's C.
Is this a normal temperature????
What harms can a high temp like this can have to my notebook in the long run??
In the worst case should i consider of switching to a CORE 2 DUO.......i mean replacing mine with it if that is possible????
First of all, AMD in generall gets hotter than INTEL, but thats very high heat you having there. My mind goes to the cpu, maybe its not that good isolated whit the zinkpasta.
Second, you cant change from AMD to INTEL without changing the MoBo, there is diferent sockets on AMD and INTEL.I have a Ferrari loptop myself with an AMD, i can fry eggs on it from the heat when i play games. Therefore its very importat to clean the fan as often as possible. But 80 degrees celsius is way to much. With that temperature you soon will burm the HDD and or the MoBo as i did on mine.
Good luck to you

Hello, here is the deal, AMD and INTEL both have CPU's that have low heat. In your case you would have to buy a new laptop to switch from AMD to INTEL. The laptop motherboard take's only one socket type, for exp.. you would have to get another TURION at faster speeds or less speeds in the same socket family. Try to keep the vents open, sometimes the vents for the air from the fan come out the bottom not the back. You might want to invest in a laptop fan stand.
