    I just bought a new Satellite L750....... specs:

    Toshiba Satellite L750-A116
    • Intel Core i7 2720QM @ 2.20 / 3.10 GHz.
    • 8 GB DDR3 1333 MHz. RAM
    • nVIDIA GeForce GT 525M 2GB DDR3 VRAM
    • Toshiba TruBrite® HD TFT 15.6" ( 1366x768 )
    • Kingston KC100 120GB SSD
    • Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)

    Is it ok that I am running it on the HIGH PERFORMANCE power plan all the time?

    The current CPU temp is 68 C

    Is that ok?

    What are good temps / dangerous temps? I don't know

    Please help

    Temp depends on room temp,load(runnning apps etc.) & cpu.Imo that is getting towards the hot zone.But idk what a i7 2720QM normally runs at.
    Beast compared to my acer!Mine doesn't get past 64 C running full load for 1hr plus.I break it down & clean it at least every 2 months.Dust builds up fast in laptops.I put new thermal on every now then also.My laptop stays in my room.I run it maxed out all the time with no problems.
