List of current issues
Now its cool and around 50'c . But sometimes it exceeds 70'c
Steps taken, but unsuccessful?
Cleaned my CPU Fan 3 weeks back to fix it.

Thanks for all of your help guys, after learning something from u members i have fixed my mind now to not replace the thermal paste, instead i will just clean the wents. My PC is 2 years old now, i would wait for some more time, by then this PC would have been given as a gift or even may be sold. :)
Out of curiosity, which AMD A8 processor.. Like A8-6410, ect?

Why i ask, as it varies from model to model the max operating temps of the CPU. It would also be helpful to know the Brand of laptop and model, as this will make a difference as well. Some manufactures implement poor cooling designs with certain models.. Do you use this laptop mainly on a desk, or on your lap partially blocking the vents..

As @exterminator20 pointed out, canned air is a laptops best friend, i keep no less then 3 cans around at a time on my computer desk and blow out my laptop frequently..

My processor is AMD A8-4500M . You can see my signature to know more about my PC.
Yes I often use it over a Wooden Desk.

Well canned air is a good solution. But its too expensive to have one. With the cost of two canned air i can purchase a Pendrive. So i dont feel its worth of investing money over a pack of air !

You can get a can of air for around $3-4 USD. A pendrive is not going to prevent your PC from becoming clogged with dust & dirt impeding its performance,especially cooling performance.
I guess however if it is too expensive you will have to find another way to clean it regularly such as the vacuum on the intake fan as shown in the posted video on page 1.
A can of air will last you a while,trust me it will be money well spent.

This processor has a max operating temperature of 100c. When you have hit 80c, was it a large load on the system or light surfing/idle. 80c is nothing to be concerned of if it was a heavy load, and or you were blocking the vents partially wit it on your lap..

Canned air is worth every penny, when you consider the price of a new laptop.. Keep your hardware clean and cooler, and it will last longer..

Well @illumination I guess u were right, i did have a load in my usage at that time, even as others stated about it before. And @exterminator20 well instead of buying canned air can i try this as an alternative ?
Have never used anything like that, but you will want to watch the air pressure blowing inside the case..
Try something like this.. I have one for my digital camera, and use it at times on my laptop when i am out of canned air..

Although the pressure is not as strong as canned air, it will due in a pinch..

Well Its currently about 63 Degree Celsius.

Usually when I start my PC it will be around 49-55. And after that it stays in this temp.

The max. temp of this CPU is around 100ºC, the temperature sensor on AMDs current CPU lineup are also quite inaccurate, most likely the temp is 5-10 degrees lower! There is really no need to do anything about it as long as your notebook doesn't shut down because of the overheating protection.

Hi! I suggest you give it a good cleaning. Also you need yo use your lap top on a hard service.
IMHO lap top is misleading and shouldn't be used on your lap as they can get very hot!
How effective is it to use a vacuum? Actually, I am more concerned if it is safe for the computer. I do not know any physics behind a vacuum, but I thought it created a good amount of static. I could be wrong, but any insight would be appreciated. Sometimes, I find blowing with canned air is not effective on some models of laptops.

This is quite high. We both live in same hot weather country . Mine also quad core processor & never exceed above 40 in idle & in night it's down to 3-4 celsius. Did u change thermal paste before? Also u should consider to take a look on laptop cooling pad. Sure 100 is the max temp of cpu is around 100 but high temp will reduce ur cpu life.

Even if it reduced the CPU lifetime everything else of the notebook would fail before the CPU... Are you using a notebook or desktop CPU, Intel or AMD, soldered heat spreader or thermal pasted one, there is a huge difference between them.

I'm using both AMD & intel & both desktop & use thermal paste.

Sorry my english was a bit derpy there, this wasn't a question to you but rather an explanation :oops:. Oh and I didn't mean if you are using thermal paste for CPU cooler and CPU but rather if your CPU manufacturer solders or thermal pastes the heat spreader onto your CPU, if it is using thermal paste you can delid it and gain up to 20ºC.

it's ok :D but i guess Purshu_Pro use thermal paste if not then he need it also a laptop cooling pad will cool his lappy a few degree celsius :)

Well well well, I guess a cooling pad is not required for me, indeed I may need a thermal paste for sure. I will buy and apply myself as now I am computer service engineer myself. The only thin that stand within me now is, which paste to buy? We have Cooler Master, Deep Cool, Artic Silver. So which one to choose? Over all Artic Silver is the most expensive one.

It doesn't matter, really.
