I am using a HP Pavilion g6-1209ax Notebook PC which is having AMD A6 APU, the problem with it is the processor overheats during operation. The temp rises >70deg Celsius, for monitoring the temp i am using "core temp".
Is the temp in the normal range,
i believe AMD still has thermal issues to tackle.
Are other fellow/friends users using the this laptop are finding the same problem.
I also need HP advice on this issue.
Please advice on this
laptop model: HP Pavilion g6-1209ax Notebook PC
OS: Win7 Home basic x64

May not be AMD issue, was using a Lenovo ideapad with A6 & temp never went over 60degC
Average idle light task temp was 51degC, I use HWiNFO for monitoring temp & adding notification area status icons.
Here in Thailand running temps normally are worse due to higher ambeint temp.
I would check all runing processes & review your temperatures further,if 70degC at idle light tasks & rises higher then it a concern but if hitting 70degC playing a game, watching a HD video or compressing 500mb of files to an archive or such ! then not such a concern & a normalish max temp reading of an A6
Also review location of laptop as if placed badly the casings vents & intakes may be comprimized.
One bad thing seen on many HP notebooks is higher running temps due mainly to poor thermal design & cooling components so I can apreciate some concern ...

Well i am very concerened while placing my laptop on surfaces, i always make it a point never to place it on uneven surfaces, but one thing is true i am yet to buy a cooler pad and i always use the laptop in HP max performance plan. Here also in northeast part of india the ambient temp is high, this prob was not there in the winters.
Also one thing is true, lenovo thermal design is much better than HP.
Thanks and Regards,

Well the answer is tricky..
first of all we cannot compare Intel and AMD i will point it out
A6 APU is equivalent to i5 (but the price u get AMD is low)
intel processors are good for raw processing, eg fast booting, quick opening of ms word, etc
but AMD is good for graphics processings, and others.. (google amd vs intel)
with AMD will come along more thermal radiation (cpu gets more hot), less priced, better movie experience.
the bottom line is give "AMD a chance"
i am using it for last 6 months now i did not find any probs, but i am yet to play high end games. maintain proper ventilation...

i am also having this same issue with my AMD hp pavilion g6 the left corner gets pretty warm where as my INTEL g6 stays normal im sure this is an AMD issue since only the amd laptop had this issue any sort of fix would be appreciated im going to personally take mine apart replace the fan and thermal paste and see if this has any effect
