Recently turned off 'fan always on' setting through BIOS and worried if I've caused damage?

HP Spectre x360 - 15-ch055na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Basically, before I made the change, my core temperatures usually hovered around the 40C (104F) mark when using under a low load. I decided to check the temperatures a few days after I made the change and, to my surprise, it was at around 65–70C (150F) and the fans still hadn’t turned themselves on (they only did when the temperature got a bit higher). Now I’m worried if I’ve caused irreversible damage to my unit due to the excess heat that has been lingering around for the past few days. I'm aware that this temperature is within an acceptable range, but does the fact that its been at this temperature consecutively for a long while make any difference to the damage caused? Is it normal for the temperature to be this high without the fan turning itself on, or is it likely that my sensors are faulty? Thanks.

@qwerty29 Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you are facing issues with overheating.

 

Please do not turn on the fan.

 

If the computer idles getting 65-degree that is normal. 

 

Please refer to the below link to Reducing Heat Inside the Laptop to Prevent Overheating.

Also, update the BIOS and check.

And the answer to the above question will help me, help you!
