  1. Windows update causing my CPU to run hot.


    Good day,So after I did the last update on the 15th of Oct, my PC will be idling and for some reason the CPU usage jumps up to 30% and temp sits at 60degrees.Now the strange thing is, as soon as I open task manager the CPU usage drops down to 3% and the temp goes back to normal at around 38 degrees. In task manager I cant see what is using or causing the 30% usage.When I close task manager it happens again after about 10 to 15 min. and it sits on that 30% in idle without change. I'm using AIDA64 to monitor the usage and temps.I have to keep task manager open for the pc not to over heat wen I'm

  2. CPU running hot during windows update

    Hi,

    windows updates are taking a very long time lately and the CPU is running hot 50 - 60 degrees. The internal (and sometimes external) fan really is trying to cool it down but not a chance. The notebook is new and I am not doing anything else. Even downloading
    and installing is taking hours. At the moment version 1703 is installed but I am downloading the new updates right now.

    I have Windows 10, i5-7200U CPU, 8GB RAM and 64-bit operating system.

    Any idea how I can fix that problem?

    Cheers

    CPU temp -- is this running too hot ?


    Hi there

    running a fairly heavy but not unduly load the CPU seems to be running at about 75 deg C peak -- Avg about 61 deg C.
    Is this likely to cause trouble over prolonged periods.

    I know that these devices can run extremely hot but I don't want to break it if adding more cooling can sort it out.

    Any hardware gurus out there --is this OK or should I try and take remedial action.
