- Operating System
With this microcode update, I am below 50 C most of the time. Browsing in low 40s!! Idle in high 30s. During very CPU intensive tasks around high 60s. I didn't even know I could reach temps this low. So between 5-10 C lower temperatures in general. Highly impressed. If I ever have to take the laptop apart, I will add some high quality heat paste and see how much lower it could get.
This is really a difference that you can literally feel. My laptop feels cold now. It used to get toasty enough to keep me warm during these colder winter days.
