To madmikee & francoisgonenc
With all respect to both of you but now i am thinking on loud:
Excellent solution, how i didn’t try that
Out of topic but: Someday my water pipes start leaking in my house and solution was so simple, I simply closed the pipe vent on half and you guess what ... leaking hmmm... was less leaky yupiiii The other day my 4 cylinder car was overheating, the solution was so simple soo what I did was I disabled 2 cylinders ,than I went driving max. 20 miles per hour not more sure only in winter time and yes it worked like charm.
What we can learn from that is that simple and stupid solutions are usually still stupid solutions he he ...but thay are still simple and again stupid....
However back to the topic:
I guess I sold the laptop too early what should I done is reduce the cpu to 50% or disable one core maybe. Great solution, thank you.
You sure make my day

You are watching HD movie and the cpu temperature is 53 C ...yeaaahhhh right and elephants can fly.
And second thing if you read my post then you should know my temperature went even lower on 45 c but in IDLE !!!!!!! I didnt buy computer to be in IDLE !!!!!!

as a private user I can say,
- replacing the old fan with a new SILENT one with less DB value must resolve the problem. (for noise)
- Renew (thermal silver grease), Clean the fan and air out grill from dust blocks (for overheating)
- if everything is ok you can drop above mentioned CPU Performance value between 67%-90% it is up to you to test the temperature a bit more using Speedfan. So friends, don't try to open your notebook yourself because you must unmount 95% of notebook parts before you reach the noisy fan and hot cpu. lol.

I may have found the solution to the problem of overheating and fan noise.
The problem is poor cooling paste on all processors.
Open the laptop and remove the CPU cooler. Remove all old cooling paste and replace with eg. Arctic Silver 5
Clean the fan for dust.
This had a HUGE improvement on my DV7-2070. Laptop was like new. Cold and stable.
HP, you have a cooling problem pasta!

but i have intel i7 and a crappy intel "HD" video card
it's not that hot but DAAYUM does it make a lot of noise

My Pavillion slows way down when the CPU gets hot. I did start using an ice pack under the ne corner of the lptop and that fixed the problem. Can you suggest a better one?
