Temps while compiling

Running Arch on the i5-1135G7 and compiling a large software project will leave the laptop at 100 degrees C for hours. Is this healthy?

Both HT and the clock boost are disabled in BIOS (3.09), but the laptop still goes to 3,400 Mhz.

OK :slight_smile: Clearly designed for hot places and even Venus and Mercury only reach around 450°C

Even the surface of the Sun is only around 6000°C


not ideal, but there are acceptable temperature for modern intel CPUs when under load

Your Framework laptop processor should only reach 90c+ when it’s boosting (first 28 seconds of your compilation). After that, it should only operate up to 28w, and that equates to around 70-85c for this particular laptop. Assuming airflow is not blocked.

You mentioned that you have boost disabled. So your laptop’s processor shouldn’t really go beyond 85c (for this laptop).

Assuming your ambient temperature is no more than 25c.

Switch off just the Speedstep option and you should just get the max base clock speed. The rest you can ignore. I had to go through all of them before my 1165G7 locked to 2.8GHz max.

It runs at max 69 degrees doing that.


@Jason_Dagless Thanks, that was it. I switched off both Speedstep and Turbo, now it’s a comfortable 69 C.
