    Is GPU idle at 62 deg. C bad?


    my HP laptop's gpu temperature idles at about 61-62 deg. C. Is this a high enough number to be concerned? In vista it idles at 50 deg. C. I have the latest nvidia drivers. If this is high, how does one cool it? I have done the obvious things like clean out vent and lower visual effects etc.. Thanks in advance.

    My Acer laptop is about the same. If no apps at all are running but the desktop, it hovers around 56. Open firefox it goes to about 60. Running Flash videos is the worst. It can get up to a little over 100 when in full-sceen mode and about 85-90 in a small screen. Whenever I watch a video, I keep checking my conky. It has gotten so hot it shuts down. That's NOT a good thing, so I try to keep an eye on it.
