Pavilion 15-BC220NR
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I recently purchased the HP Pavilion with GTX 1050 video card [Model: 15-BC220NR] and loaded some games to run and test it. I am running the game on max settings, which the card is more than capable of handling. Also downloaded Piriform's Speccy to monitor the heat in the laptop because I suspected the thermal dissipation design might be amiss. 

 

My average temps for Idling were around 35-55C for both the CPU and Motherboard. This goes up to ~65-80C on peak performance.  The motherboard usually is always at a higher temp than the CPU (which I find odd) and makes me wonder if this would be indicative of possible motherboard overheat failure in the future. By higher I mean ~10C higher than the CPU.

 

Conditions:

Location: My Game Room Temps ~72F

Surface: Table

Time to Heat: ~1-2mins from Game Start
